Over the last few years Black Friday shopping has become a little overwhelming for mom and I. Each holiday season we find ourselves doing more and more of our shopping online. Since we are not 5:00 AM store opening kind of gals, I think we actually save a lot more by doing our shopping online.
Last night we embarked on a Sears $200 online shopping challenge. As life-long deal finders, we were eager to see how much we could squeeze out of our $200 budget.
The very first thing we did was sign up for a Shop Your Way Rewards membership. After all it’s free to sign up and who doesn’t want to earn valuable points to use toward future purchases? It was just one short form to fill out and we were on our way to saving more money.
Sears has a huge Thanksgiving sale going on right now with Black Friday prices all week on select items, so we did not feel like we were missing out on any savings by shopping early. The first thing that caught my eye when visiting www.sears.com was a promo code which would give us a 15% discount on some of our qualifying items and free shipping (on qualified orders).
One of the things we most wanted to find was a good deal on a digital camera. They were easy to find by using the Departments drop down menu and then sorting by categories such as: Recommended, Top Rated, and Price. There were so many great cameras to choose from and many were on sale. The customer reviews were very helpful in making our final decision. While we were shopping a window popped up asking if we needed any assistance from a live chat representative. I think that is such a convenient customer service option.
It is really amazing how much shopping we accomplished in one hour, from the comfort of our living room sofa. It would have taken us an hour just to get to the store. The search bar at the top of the web page made it very easy for us to locate just what we were looking for. You will be shocked by everything we got for just $200!
- Olympus 12 megapixels Digital Camera
- 2 Pairs of Women’s Shoes (actually came from Kmart and we got a buy 1 get 1 at 50% off deal)
- Women’s Plus Size Cardigan

- Men’s Long Sleeve Classic Flannel Shirt

I am a compensated brand ambassador for Sears, although we’re already shopping and sharing our favorite retailer my paid relationship with Sears won’t have an effect on what I say here.
