"By offering an opportunity online to win a prize, we can help families in a very tangible way."
The grand prize winner of the online sweepstakes will receive $10,000 in products and services offered by Sears HomeCentral to repair, maintain and improve their home. Five first prize winners will receive Sears Carpet & Upholstery Care services valued up to $600. Consumers need not purchase Sears products or services in order to enter the contest, but they should check out the many special savings and zero percent financing offers that are available throughout the month of March.
A sweepstakes link will appear on the Sears home page beginning March 4. Clicking on that link will take users to the sweepstakes entry form and a link to the official rules of the contest. Information about the special "Spring Fix-Up" savings can be found under the Home Services tab.
