A Shopping we will go with #SearsClubPoints

Widgets


The Sears Christmas Wish Book is my favourite catalogue hands down and I have passed my love for the catalogue onto my 8 year old daughter who is always starring at the pages dreaming of the many things she has picked out that she would like for Christmas. When I told my daughter we were heading to Sears to do some shopping her face just lite up and she was more than excited. With our Sears Club Points Card in hand we headed to our local Sears store with our wish list in hand. Thank you Sears for providing me with a points card so I could see how easy it is to use and make my purchase.



As we entered our local Sears store that I have never been in since we just moved to Toronto 3 months ago. The first thing we noticed is how clean the store was and then my husband pointed out that the aisles were so wide making them very stroller friendly. Mothers you so know what I mean by that! My eyes wandered to all the displays as we entered the store and I felt very much like a kid in a candy store. My husband quickly reminded me of our list. UGH the dreaded list!

Off we went to the Men's section to look for some new shirts for my husband. Of course as usual I spot the clearance racks. I am definitely a clearance/sale shopper so I went over to those racks first. My husband found two shirts that he really liked and they fit him well. Both shirts were on clearance one was regular $65.99 on for $15.99 can we say SCORE!

I have a few conferences coming up in the middle of October so my husband suggested I pick up some items for myself. When I go shopping I mainly buy for others and really don't put myself first. Typical mom here for sure. So off we went to the ladies section where there was so much to choose from. My husband picked up a top he liked and thought would look good on me and I just loved it. Shopping can pretty easy some times.

While shopping through the store we were greeted and asked if we need any help three times. We didn't require their help but I did appreciate that they were actually interested in serving their customers. Off we went to the cashier who greeted up with a smiling face. She rang up our order without incident and just swiped my points cards as if it was a credit card. Nothing to sign and so easy to use. She returned my card back to me because it still had a balance on it and pointed out on the receipt where it showed the balance on my points card which will come in handy for some Christmas purchases. Nothing I purchased was exempted from the card making it so easy to use. I know my daughter has a long wish list from Sears so I will be back for sure but next time without her so I can actually surprise her with her gifts.
