Shop Your Way Rewards sign-up if you are not yet a member!

One of my favorite programs is the Shop Your Way Rewards program.  It is completely free, and you can sign-up to receive special offers.  Certain retailers such as Kmart, Lands’ End, and Sears are places where you can earn points and redeem points.  They often will send “Surprise Points” such as $3-$5 in surprise points to spend on anything!  There are often exclusions as well such as not valid on Land’s End merchandise in-store, but recently I received $5 off $25 purchase at Lands’ End in-store and I was able to combine my coupon with the 70% off winter clearance going on at Land’s End.  If you are a member, you may want to check your emails to see if you received a $10 off $20 coupon.  You do need to clip this coupon to your Shop Your Way Rewards account if you were lucky enough to get this.  I went to the store to spend this coupon and was able to combine this with a great $1.99 clearance going on in-store.  If you are not yet a member, you can sign-up here:
