The Fine Print

  • Limit of $100 cash back per month
  • Promotion runs from September – December 2015
  • You must activate the offer

Our Verdict

This is a fantastic offer, we’ve been seeing a lot more of these great offers on store cards recently (Banana Republic offered 10x with no cap). Most people don’t give store cards much of a thought because their rewards programs are often lacking and they have virtually no sign up bonuses, but I know a lot of people (myself included) have a few because these deals tend to pop up from time to time.

Obviously if you can max this deal out you’d earn $400 (minus any fees you incur) which is as good as or better than a sign up bonus. The problem is you never know when deals are going to strike or if you’re going to be targeted.

How do you convert your sears shop your way points to sears gift cards ?

You don’t…The Sears Choice points are earned if you have their credit card. SYW points are another program

I have this card, but the only offers I ever get are for spending at Sears. I wish there was a way to move the credit line to another Citi card.

Not familiar with the value of these points. Can you exchange the points for a statement credit at a 1:1 exchange rate?

I have this offer and gave it a try. Just looked at my Sept closing closing statement and there is nothing about the points. Went on-line to check the points…. Nothing showed up. I gave them a call and they read me the other fine print that I hadn’t noticed in the offer e-mail.

“Please allow 4 – 8 weeks after the end of the promotional period for the statement credit to be added to your account.”

So they are telling me that no points will show on-line until sometime around Feb’16 or Mar’16! While I don’t want to give up the 10%, but should I just trust these guys to follow through? Anyone else have any experience with this type of offer?

That is common for extra points not to be added till a few months later.

Mine was $100 for “Aug-Sept Gas, Grocery, Dining Promo.” Did yours say something similar? I was expecting to see more than $100 for both months combined.

I received a $100 credit last week as well, but was expecting about $130. From what I could tell, the maximum statement credit was for $100 each month, but perhaps the wording is indicating the max they’ll credit in one month is $100?
