For a few weeks now I’ve been wanting to do a post on how I’ve started to pay more attention to my Kmart emails. A couple of weeks back a co-worker was telling me about Shop Your Way Rewards points were expiring that day and that I needed to go to Kmart after work and get something free with my points. I went in hopes that their grocery section was beefier than it was because I was in need for dinner that night. However I did pick up a much-needed pizza cutter since ours mysteriously disappeared. What’s better than free? And it slices very well too! Better than our old one! lol
Turns out my points weren’t expiring that night anyway, but it was a learning lesson to put Kmart on my radar. I’ve had the card sure, got the emails, yeah, but doesn’t matter if it’s not a place I frequent. I don’t get their circular in my paper. But I have since downloaded the app and like I’ve stated, have begun paying attention to my emails!
So let’s fast forward to this weekend. I did a bit of online shopping for the holidays. The best thing about holiday shopping is finding great deals on things you need for yourself and your home.
First up was this can opener that I got for $3.13!!! That’s right! It’s orginally $9.99 was marked down half off and then I used some points to cover the difference! It works great too and it was a dire need in our home!!!
I shop in ways that benefit me. Of course I shopped via Ebates so I get cash back on my purchases and it gives me coupon codes too. Plus it’s free in store pickup, which is convenient to me since it’s like 5 min away from me, and essential in the case of the tree. The in store pickup process was easy peasy. I wouldn’t go during peak time I guess and expect it to be so smooth, but hey, they pleased me today. And on top of all of that I get points towards my balance. No crowds, no extra time walking around the store…can’t beat that. 🙂
