This is a "Beat the Clock Sale" as in "Hurry, before we auction off the remaining Sears stores."

I just got back from my local store (burning point balance), and I have to say that the floors were looking pretty empty.

And the one by my house in Vernon Hills is looking pretty bleak, half the hardware department is empty space.
Gonna be sad to see Sears go.

From a nostalgic point of view, it will be sad. I am from the age group where I recall my parents ordering stuff from the Sears catalog and Wish Book, and it was a big deal going there with my family to shop for school clothes, appliances, tools etc. But in reality those days have been gone for a long time and these stores have been essentially dying a slow death long before now.

In fact, I had not stepped into a Sears or Kmart store for probably 10 years until I found out about all of the crazy 100% cashback offers from this website about 6 months ago. And once I burned all of my points, I really had no intention of shopping there again. But yeah, definitely good memories from back in the day with my family, rest their souls.

I live in a rural area, where Kmart and Sears actually do pretty well. Sears still has a lot of bare shelves in the tool section though so I'm wondering if these stores will be caught in the wake of all your stores' failure to thrive. I assume so.

Buyer beware. 2 weeks ago Sears had a "spend $100 on kitchen stuff get $40 cash back" and "spend $75 on craftsman get $50 back" so I did and didn't get any of the points. Than Sears shipped it to the wrong adress, similar to mine. So I didn't get anything after wasting 3 hours on the phones with 5 representatives til I finally got a manager who couldn't help me other than a refund which they messed up and only refunded half the order. So I got no cash back points, I have to call and deal with them again, than go return the 2 random items that did show up. Worst shopping experience of my life avoid Sears at all cost.

That exact same thing just happened to me but with Walmart. Avoid Walmart at all costs! And Amazon too last week! OMFG!

All mine worked fine. Did it say you earned them on the confirmation page?

Yep. Got a stern and field $7k mattress and adjustable bed for 85% off. They drop price 10% every 2 weeks several weeks into the liquidation. and the last month it's about 10% each month. Employees can also grant a 10% extra discount on price paid (not base price, e.g. $7k bed for ~$1k gets extra $100 off). I was also able to get free delivery. Admittedly, our Sear's mattress selection dropped hard after it went to 70% of the full base price. Liquidators generally reduced prices Saturday morning. I highly recommend getting there at opening hours if you're inclined to get a particular mattress.

They will keep offering you insane points to get you back until they finally can't find any means to cheat their book to fill the big blackhole.

Before I used off the a few dollars left, sucked into the marketplace deal and now will be back to $100+ points. Good that I have kmart nearby that I can burn the points on grocery if needed

Not just nostalgia (though I have the same fond memories of the Wish Book), but of all the great deals, especially since they started the SYW reward system.
I have continually shopped at Sears for the last decade, but especially in the last 4 when I became a homeowner.
I have gotten incredible deals on tools, appliances and more.
Just this past month they gave me $30 free cash points- not spend $30 get $30, just $30 to spend.
And then $15 and a $9.
I got a 100' rubber hose, 50' hose, quick connect hose kit plus additional male adaptors, 2-pack tool bag combo, 3/8" wobble extension bar set and 3 pack hex key set- all this for only $35 of actual out of pocket cash.
Of course the downside to this huge spike in SWYR offers and sales- it's most likely a scheme to bulk up the appearance of sales to stave off creditors for just a bit longer- which is a shame because this, combined with empty shelves, probably means after scraping by for years the end is finally near...
