Last Minute Holiday Shopping at Sears

Sears logoI saw an article recently stated that an estimated 4.8 million people will find time on Christmas Day to shop online, an increase of 9% over last year.

4.8 million people!

That's a lot of shopping and that means that there must be deals to be had somewhere, right?

People’s Pick Program

Giving you the ability to vote on the deals that you want this holiday, People's Pick essentially lets customers make their "pick" today and then shop this weekend for it if it is the winner.

Here's how the process works:
  1. Visit People's Pick.
  2. Choose one of their many deal categories (e.g. Him, Her, Kids, Teens, DIY-er, Techie, Entertainer, Chef).
  3. Vote for the best deal in your chosen category (voting takes place each week Sunday - Tuesday).

  4. Every Wednesday Sears will announce the most popular deals and customers can come back Friday and Saturday when the winners are available in-store and online! With the option of entering your email address in to be notified about which deals win, you can rest assured that you won't miss out on taking advantage of your favorites.
This weekly program ends December 24, 2011, so be sure to take advantage of being able to get the most value for your money on the products you want... and incredible limited-time savings online and in-stores nationwide.
