HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Busy holiday shoppers now have a better way to shop at Sears and Kmart using the Shop Your Way mobile app. For the first time, Shop Your Way members can unlock special deals and personalized offers by using the app to "Shop'In" when they are near a Sears or Kmart store. The Shop Your Way mobile app with the new Shop'In feature is available free on iTunes or Google Play.
Members who Shop'In from the Shop Your Way app can also:
- Be the first to learn about the latest holiday offers, like the holiday bonus offer for Sears cardholders – members get 10 percent back in rewards points when they use a Sears Card or three percent back in rewards points when shopping with any other form of payment. The holiday bonus deal runs now through Dec. 26 on the first $1,000 of each qualifying purchase at participating Sears locations and Sears.com. Reward points expire 1/31/14.

"Shop'In connects members with the added benefits of instant access to deals and e-coupons, special pricing and members-only perks – all from a mobile device," said Imran Jooma, executive vice president and president, marketing, online, pricing and financial services, Sears Holdings.
