Last-Minute Holiday Shopping Tips at Sears

Disclosure sponsored

Can you believe we are *this close* to Christmas? Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Colby and I have not even thought about it and typically have a list from all the kids by now. Fortunately, we can get started this Sunday, October 16 at the Sears Member Bonus Event! But first, we have tips to jump start holiday shopping.

Jump Start Holiday Shopping

Fortunately, we still have a bit of time to set these tips into motion. After all, the holidays will be here before we know it and it’s important to go into the holiday shopping season with a plan. Hopefully, by following these tips, you can master your holiday shopping without (much) stress.

  • Make a List — Knowing exactly who you are buying gifts for gives you ideas for what type of items you will be looking for as you shop.
  • Set a Budget — Now that you have your holiday list, set a shopping budget. Set a maximum amount to spend on each person, or overall, but be realistic in setting your budget!
  • Do Your Research — Before making purchases, research the items for best brand, quality, and price! Hop on to help you find the best deals before you go.
  • Shop Early — This is perhaps the most important tip to me personally. Avoiding the crowds and taking advantage of early sales helps alleviate the last-minute stress!

This is why you need to come to the Sears Member Bonus Event on October 16th from 6 to 9pm at your local store! This special event gives Shop Your Way Members exclusive access to the Sears Days Lowest Prices of the Season Sale that doesn’t begin for everyone else until the following weekend! This means you can get a jump on your holiday shopping and save. Not to mention, this year, Sears is introducing the Sears Holiday Guarantee. What does that mean you ask? Easy…

When you shop in-store during the Sears Member Bonus Event on October 16, if any item purchased goes lower in the same store between that night and December 24th, Sears will AUTOMATICALLY credit you the difference back in points, up to a maximum of $100 in points per member.* {Points awarded 1/16/17}

What’s really incredible is that this guarantee includes their amazing Black Friday doorbuster pricing! So, you can shop early at a members only exclusive event, save on your holiday wish list items, and then get points back if those prices dropper later into the season. It’s like shopping with “insurance” on your purchases. You get your shopping started early and still reap the savings that are likely to come as the holiday shopping season continues.

Colby and I are gathering as much information as we can from the kids this week before we attend the Sears Member Bonus Event this Sunday. I mean, saving money is essential when you’re shopping for 8 kids! Not to mention, most of them are past the “toy” stage and well into technology and home products, especially with our new home just on the horizon. The girls already have a long list of items they want for their new rooms and the older three just moved into their own home 2 months ago. Chey has been begging for a treadmill. New seasonal clothes are on the list. Luckily, Sears has an excellent selection of products from clothes to home goods and fitness items to choose from that will fit everyone’s unique style!
