Shop Your Way Rewards seems to be offering 100% back in points when you redeem points. This would be a great way to roll any expiring points! I can't find any details on which items qualify, when points will post, or when they expire. This was just something that popped up in my cart when I was trying to spend the $5 in home goods points from last week.

"Members earn back what your redeem! Redeem your points today on qualifying items at Sears and Kmart and continue the savings through 7/31/2016. Exclusions Apply."

And it seems important to figure out what the "qualifying items" are.

Yes. I bought the Air Pump from another Slickdeal. When I went to check out, it gave me 100% back in points, which I was not expecting. They have not posted to my account, but it did confirm the points at checkout. It's always a good idea to screenshot the confirmation page in case points don't post.

Wow this is just my luck. I have had my eye on a couple pair of cargo shorts for a while, and was waiting until today to use my $20 in points on them, because i had a few more dollars that was going to come active today. Last night i was looking at the shorts, which are on sale, and i noticed that the sale was going to end yesterday. I thought 'man i'd like to wait, but ive gotten burned in the past by a sale ending... i better just go ahead and get them now... besides, it's what i'm going to use the points on anyway, so it's no big deal to miss out on the $5 coming active today'.

So i see this alert where you get 100% points back, and think 'yeah thats an awesome deal, but those shorts went off sale today, so i probably wouldn't have saved money if i had waited to use my points today... lemme go check and see how much they raised the price back to'. Surprise, shorts still on sale for another week.

Frown

The one time i dont procrastinate to avoid screwing myself like i have done many times in the past, and it ends up screwing me. Frown

I got an order shipment email today... i wonder if i can return them and get points back, and then rebuy them with the points, and take advantage of this offer?

These are a link to the shorts BTW... they are on sale, but i dont see any 'hot buy/great buy/clearance' designation on the website:

http://www.sears.com/southpole-yo...ockType=G1

These are awesome shorts, by the way, especially if you work outside in the heat. They look and feel like cargo shorts, but the top is a wide elastic band with a pull tie in it, like a pair of gym shorts... extremely comfortable.

edit: Okay, just to test, i applied my $5 in points to a pair, and it didn't show that i would receive $5 back, so this item must not qualify for the promotion due to it being on sale, even though the website doesn't call it a 'hot buy/great buy'.

I posted this as a question in the $5 Kmart thread since I got no details in my email message but no one had answered it. Anyway, I went to Sears last week and ask the cashier to try but he wasn't sure if the points will post so he called the SYWR csr on behalf of me and they didn't know about the deal so they ask me to send them the email I received to info@shopyourwayrewards.com. I was too busy to do that and didn't really want to chase after such an unclear offer.

I think it is targeted. I have three SYW accounts, and remember getting an email similar to this, but only to one account- I think it was get $10 in points when you spend $20 in points or something- also I had to activate it to my account.
Unfortunately I no longer have the email.

It might be. I did get an email about it this morning, so check to see if you got it.

Entirely targeted. Members selected for this offer received an email. Most of us were not selected for the offer.

I got this email, but I'm not getting points showing at cart/checkout. OP, when you did it, did it show points back on the payment page or only the final checkout confirmation? What were you buying? (i.e. is it not working for me because not "qualifying items"?)
