Super sales at Sears

Following a tip from Slickdeals.net, I found myself on Sears.com last night. I subscribe to the Slickdeals RSS feed so I won’t miss out.

I’ve been needing some wardrobe staples for awhile, and after some quick browsing, it looked like I might have found a great place to take care of that. I found some magnificent markdowns on clearance items. Prices are valid through today, I believe.

I logged into my Ebates account and clicked on Sears.com (which will earn me an extra 2 percent back on my order). I paid with a rewards Visa card, so I’ll get an extra 2 percent back on top of that.

Pennsylvania doesn’t have sales tax on most clothing. So….that’s kinda cool, especially considering regular sales tax in my county is at 7 percent.

Anyway, I found items such as this 3/4 length striped collared shirt for $4.19, a white longsleeve button-down (or button-up?) shirt for $5.59, jean capris with a belt for $5.59, a scoopneck tee for $2.79, and many more great deals.

It’s worth taking a look if you need an item here or there!

For clothing purchases, you’ll get free shipping if you spend $50 or more. Plus, there might be an option to have free store delivery on some items (not entirely sure if you can have this done for your whole order).

Maybe instead of clothes, you need a set of three self-watering hanging baskets (so random, I know). For $5.97 plus shipping, they can be yours.

**BONUS TIP** If you have a Giant Eagle near you and plan to spend $50 or more at Sears, consider running over to Giant Eagle to buy a gift card. You’ll get $0.10 off per gallon of gas at GetGo. I believe you can use gift cards online, but be sure to read the back of the card before you buy it, just to be sure.

Pay for the gift card with a rewards debit or credit card (at least, I think you can do that), and then pay for your fuel with a rewards card for additional savings.

  1. I like you information. It’s unfortunate (for me) that most sites and savings don’t apply to Canadian sources but you are doing well by sharing the savings you do find and you’ve managed to get me uber curious about ebates!

  2. What luck have you had buying clothes online? I’ve hesitated to do it, because I can’t imagine trying them on to see how they feel & fit & what the material’s like, etc. Has that not been a problem?

  3. Generally, I’ve had a good experience with buying clothes online.

    I don’t buy pants online though, since I’m tall it’s just better for me to try those on.

    But for things like tops, dresses, skirts, shorts etc., I consult the site’s sizing chart and find my size.

    I prefer buying clothes only from sites that have easy return policies.

    If any of my Sears loot won’t work (I hope it all does!) I can return it to the Sears at the mall here.

    I really don’t like shopping for clothes (I kind of hate it). At a store, it takes me awhile to find things I like, and then I can’t always find things that fit at a good price. And trying so many things on–it wears me out.

    So, if I can find a good deal online and shop from my computer, I’ll do it that way.

    As far as fabrics and the way things feel, it can go either way. If I’m familiar with the fabric blend, then I can anticipate how it will be.
