SD site tips - you can: How to earn points on Sweeps/Doorbusters
1 - Go here for the sweeps/doorbusters: http://www.shopyourway.com/app/2/l/
2 - Type in the name of the current Sweep/Doorbuster in the search bar
3 - Click "Get Started" on the Sweep/Doorbuster that shows up.
4 - Do the survey (I recommend "other" "none" "prefer not to say" or "no" to give as little marketing information as possible to the world - they sell this about you)
5 - When you're done with the survey, a spinner/scratch off will appear. Press skip and then the reward is shown if you earned it.
6 - The rewarded points will appear in your My Points section. To check, at the top of the screen, click your name and then "MY POINTS" to see how many points you got. It will take a few hours to update typically but sometimes a day or two.

All Sweeps and Doorbuster points expire in 14 days.

How to help locate Doorbusters
1) Visit shopyourway.com/sweeps
2) Click All Sweeps
3) Hold down the space bar until all the sweeps load (this can take up to 2 minutes, you can always leave a heavy object on the space bar)
4) Press CTRL+F and type "Doorbuster"
5) Post a comment in the thread if you find one - PLEASE DO NOT UPDATE THE WIKI AT THIS TIME!
Repeat whenever you feel like it, rep Rachel42 for this trick.
You can also leave the Sweeps by Shop Your Way page [shopyourway.com] open. When new sweeps are posted you'll receive a notification and then it's time to check for a new doorbuster! Rep shari0 for this tip.

Doorbusters FAQ

0. Terminology
"Doorbuster" is the name of one of several contests offered by SYWR. Doorbusters only last a certain amount of time before they expire. The points earned from Doorbusters expire 14 days when you did the Doorbuster. These points can be used as regular points at Kmart or Sears.

1. What does a doorbuster sweeps or instant win look like on the listing?
Look at the attachments below. The doorbuster screen picture shows a sweeps listing with the doorbusters circled. The pink flag on the picture is the hallmark of a doorbuster.

2. I entered the doorbuster and the pink "doorbuster" flag on the sweeps went away. Is it over and I just made it under the wire?
In most cases, no. Once you enter, it will not say "doorbuster" anymore for you. This DOES NOT MEAN the doorbuster is dead. If you log out and check it, it will probably still be live. You can also check it in another browser where you're not logged in if you don't want to log out of SYWR.com in your main browser and check to see if the DB is still live that way.

3. I have a coupon. Can I combine Sweeps/Doorbuster Points with a coupon to make a sweet deal?
Yes, you can. Before, Doorbuster points were surprise points, which often had many exclusions on them. Now, Sweeps/Doorbuster points are just regular points with a short expiration time (14 days).

4. I got some washcloths free with my last Sweeps points that were expiring. They fell apart, because, well, Kmart. Can I return them and get points back?
If the points are now expired and you try to return something, you might not get those points back.

5. When Sweeps/Doorbuster points expire, what TIME do they expire?
They expire at 11:59 PM Central Time on the date stated. So adjust for your time zone. For Pacific time, they would expire at 10 PM, for example. note- they have at time expired up to 10 minutes earlier

Which Slickdeals thread should i be posting to/searching?

I think I discovered a trick to roll the expiring points. I had points that were expiring yesterday and did the following:

1. Added something to cart and went to checkout around 12:45AM Eastern (points would expire at 1AM).
2. Redeemed points (more than were expiring that day) but not enough for the entire order
3. Added a VISA card which was not working (I didn't know it was a bad card at the time)
4. Clicked "submit order" and it failed because the card was no good
5. Checked the points balance in the morning and noticed that the expiring points got a fresh 2-week expiration date

My points history is showing redemption and then the credit in full amount, nothing was lost due to expiration.

Edit: added the VISA card part, didn't realize it was important when I posted this initially
My experience... You can always order something that you can pick up in Sears store TODAY (NOTE: not a few days later) a few minutes before 12am CST. Then cancel order after 12am. You should get your points back, but you might have expiring points again the next day. It didn't extend expiration of the total amount points I used.

In the past you have like about 10 minutes to cancel, but now seems like I have a chance to cancel all night long before the store open. I did it once. The cancel option was still there a few hours later like between 5-6am. So, if that's the case, it might work if you place order around your local store closing time as they won't process order until the next day.

I'd never been able to cancel:
1. item to be picked up in Sears store on different day 'cause item will come from somewhere else
2. Kmart store pick up
Never saw an option to cancel for those.

I don't think I've ever ordered on the SYW site. Can we do Kmart pick-up orders using that site? If not, I don't see much of a benefit.

1. Nowadays seems like when you don't pick up your item (Kmart 14 days, Sears 30 days), your order doesn't get canceled automatically. I have to request for a refund myself, and you know... wait whatever 3-5-7-10 business days. And still... it's not posted, then I have to contact them again. Does this happen to any of you?

2. Anymore update on SYW MAX membership cancellation & credit card on file being charged?
My mom is VIP member (says MAX free for VIP), no credit card on file, no option to cancel. It said expired Aug 31, 2019 before, now expiration date changes to Aug 31, 2020.

I got a mail last week saying the original mail was sent by mistake!

I tried "cancel renewal" and "cancel membership", nothing worked. Now as VIP member, I got a new expiration date of 8/31/2020.

I haven't used it for placing order lately. I often use it for checking points, freecash, coupon, scan item barcode in store.

There are/were some annoying things like:
- You would think SYW will show all Sears & Kmart items. No, not all Kmart items will show on result.
- In the past, whatever I put in SYW cart will show in Sears.com cart--but not Kmart.com cart. Not anymore. Seems like now they are individual website with individual cart.
- There was problem for months not being able to see whether an item could be pick up from my local store until I added it to cart, but looks like it has been fixed.
- Several times I ordered Kmart item to be picked up at Sears did not have Sears salescheck # on ready to pick up email. They couldn't find it, apparently last used (friend) billing address was on my order. Read further here:
https://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=126791695&postcount=39005

I think it's best to search at Kmart.com for Kmart items. You'll get better result.

I think you misunderstood my question. The person I replied to implied we could use our points on grocery items on the SYW site in the near-future.

I was saying I would only have use for that if I could order Kmart items (ie bath tissue, almonds, etc.) and pick them in the store so there would be no shipping charge.

I've been going in-person to Kmart for the past couple of months to use my points. There's no Kmart that close to me so it's not that convenient.

Yes, it worked for grocery type items for me yesterday around 6 pm ET.

SYW Item page has to have that REDEEM POINTS on there though.

There were a lot of hiccups yesterday when I tried to place my order on SYW.com at the time which I hope has been fixed by now, but who knows if they will pop up again *IF* they are indeed "fixed."

I had to place at least 2 different items (JUST to show the points I had to redeem on either item) on the first page of checkout. Then removed the item I wasn't getting.

Next issue:

On the last page of checkout, numerous BS error messages kept popping up.

I had to rotate through them for a while by either refreshing the page, or by going forward and backward on the 2nd to last page and then last page of checkout to redeem my SYW points properly.

Then when I was short a few cents, I tried to apply an eGC for the remainder and the system wanted to THEN charge me my FULL eGC balance AND the SYW points balance I had previously APPLIED!


...

Ok back to refreshing and going backward and forward through checkout once more, and then it finally worked to charge me the correct amount to points and then eGC.

Oh --


... I never got the ready for pick up email.


Checked spam, nothing there. Checked different times today. - still nothing. THEN I logged into both Sears.com or Kmart.com - and of course, the order is ready for pickup (since sometime earlier today).

So the SYW.com order ready for pickup emails are either BROKEN AGAIN or just REALLY SLOW (if it ever DOES SHOW UP) for me at least.


That was my experience yesterday. Maybe it was, or now IS -- smooth sailing for everyone else...?

This is what I've been doing since July coz I can't find anything to buy lately & I am getting $15 in pts each week for the $300 promo... guess I'll buy a random appliance once I'm up to $300 from bonus pts + my regular $100ish points, just every wk I have to order/cancel an item that cost more than my previous wks all combined for the bonus pts. So far I've only only spent the pts on some bikinis that were on clearance.

Aren't you worried they will ban your account one day for abuse and you will lose all of your points? Cancelling an item occasionally is reasonable but not every week.

Ouch. I spun the wheel 106 times today and made... 5 cents (from the win what you want game -- which is almost a guaranteed win). This is the hardest I've ever worked for a nickel!

They made it up to me though. They loaded my account with a sweet, sweet $35/$449 FC. lol.

So, apparently I have $1,515,107.44 in points. Not bad, considering I had $11.50 just a few minutes ago.

Just me?

:Edit: I can apply them in checkout. Well, guess I have to show some restraint...
