A few days ago, I wrote excitedly about the Sears “Spend $50 ~ Get $50 Back” promotion going on right now. I even recommended to you that by purchasing your Sears Card through CVS (for only $40 after ECB’s) – you would be saving $10 and making the deal that much better. Well, we’ve had a few emails from frustrated readers who found out too late that purchases made with Gift Cards will not qualify for this rebate!
I think this is pretty ridiculous, considering the promotion’s wording only excludes combining it with any other coupon/promo. To me that makes no reference to your form of payment. (SIGH….) If you have done this based on my recommendation, let me apologize wholeheartedly for not realizing the extra exclusion!
If you already bought the Sears clothes – you may want to return them. If you now have an unwanted $50 Gift Card from CVS, remember that you can also spend it at Kmart & Lands End (Okay, I know, small comfort!) But if you are really unsatisfied with the this restriction, and think it unfair – you are welcome to call 1-800-479-8241 and speak to Sears Customer Service. Perhaps they would be willing to make an exception?
