I know some of y’all only really have access to Hometown stores - be forewarned that changes seem to be coming, and it appears that most points (i.e., bonus points) won’t be redeemable at Hometown stores anymore. The SYW site already has a separate section showing how many points you can redeem at Hometown vs Sears/Kmart (although it is glitchy), and this was added to the FAQ:
There are 3 types of points:
Shop Your Way Points: Members earn a base 1% back in points on every $1 spent at all Redemption Partners
Current List of Redemption Partners: Sears, Kmart, SHO
Bonus Points powered by Shop Your Way: Members earn varying points from Redemption Partner specific offers and promotions. Members can earn these points after a transaction is made. Bonus Points are only redeemable at the Redemption Partner where the points were earned. Bonus points can be combined with Shop Your Way points when redeeming where the Bonus Points were earned.
FREECASH powered by Shop Your Way: Members can earn even more from Redemption Partners with FREECASH offers. FREECASH are limited time offers that have specific requirements, like a minimum purchase, a quick expiration date or a certain category of items to redeem them on. FREECASH are only redeemable at the Redemption Partner where the points were earned.
