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 just checked and it said details will be in an email and it's been 30 min and no email.
Thanks

If anyone on here has won a big prize if you could send me a message and let me know how it worked, like with the W-9 I am a little confused what order to do it in. I thought I saw someone on here last summer say a couple years ago they won a laptop prize.
Thanks

I won the "what you want" prize once. I got the email the same day, didn't seem to take much longer than the usual win emails. However, I had randomly picked some crappy product worth $60 so I didn't want it so I never bothered to fill out the W-9. No need having it reported as income if I don't want it. They even reminded me several weeks later to fill out the W-9 but I ignored it.

Did you have a option to get it as points instead?

Thats's exactly one of the things I was hoping because if they buy the actual prize from the Third Party seller listed on the prize I think I won, they had horrible reviews of sending wrong laptops(older models) or used models that are supposed to be new.

Their email did not mention such an option to get it as points, nor did I ask. The email return address is the same as their other game winner emails.

This is what the email said:
COLLECT YOUR PRIZE!
To be confirmed as a winner, you need to submit a W-9 form.*
Once this is completed, we can award your prize!
PROVIDE W-9 INFO NOW

I heard of people requesting points instead and they got points, try asking someone on the facebook official SYW Win Club [facebook.com] , they actually have some mods which are in contact of the SYW/wins team.

Are you saying if people won a $500 item they were given $500 in points or some lower amount (ie $50)? I've never won but as they say "hey, you never know".

What I heard from other winner's, they would give you the exact points amount, I am sure if the item is not sold by Sears, they would rather just give you points then them buying a marketplace item or worse, a competitors item.

Those mods removed my post asking what I should do about my prize, after I had pmed them & was ignored.
I had won a limited edition ps4, the 3rd party marketseller person sent the wrong ps4, a regular ps4slim that's like half the value of the LE one. None of the methods of contacting the 3rd party marketseller got to anyone or if it did, they ignored it. SYW Win It & Sears never returned any of my msgs & ignored it. Made a public post on FB asking what others have done when the 3rd party marketplace seller used to fulfill the prize sends u the wrong item & doesn't reply to any of the ways you've tried to contact them - the mods deleted this post lol.

Then when tax season came along, I asked them what were they reporting to the IRS about my prize, the LE one I won that never received that's worth 2x as much as what I was sent or the super cheapo ps4slim value. PMed them directly, was ignored on FB & thru SYW email. Made a public post about it to see how others have done regarding that part of their taxes when they were sent a way cheaper item than what SYW most likely is reporting...and the post was deleted by mods too... lol

That's a terrible situation. I also won a gaming console off of the WinIt list. On the tax form, they reported an amount much higher than the value of the prize. What someone ( not a mod ) on fb suggested to do for tax purposes was to attach a statement, e.g, Statement 1, with the actual value of the prize and just keep supporting documentation. It seems like your situation could be trickier.
