HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., 2016-Dec-09 — /EPR Retail News/ — Shop Your Way, a business unit of Sears Holdings (NASDAQ: SHLD), and Uber Technologies, Inc. have expanded a popular rider rewards program to 23 new markets. Riders who link their accounts at shopyourway.com/uber/ride can receive unlimited Shop Your Way points – up to $2 in points for every ride with Uber. The more a member rides, the more points they earn.
Since the program initially launched this fall in New York City and Chicago, more than 10,000 Shop Your Way members have linked their accounts, earning more than $250,000 in points in just over two months. Points can be redeemed online or in-store at Sears, Kmart, Lands’ End, or shopyourway.com on a wide array of products, gifts and popular brands.
“Expanding the program during the holiday season is especially timely, because we know members are using Uber to shop,” said Leena Munjal, senior vice president, customer experience and Integrated Retail, Sears Holdings. “In fact, Black Friday was the biggest points- issuing day in November. We’ve had some riders already earn more than $300 in points. We’ve also had driver-partners who have earned $1,000 in points in addition to their Uber earnings.”
The 25 markets now featuring the $2 in points for every ride offer are:
- Las Vegas
- Los Angeles
- New Jersey*
- New Orleans
- New York City
- Orange County, Calif.
- Orlando, Fla.
- Portland, Ore.
- Sacramento, Calif.
- San Diego
- San Francisco
- Tampa Bay, Fla.
- Washington, D.C.
Shop Your Way and Uber also launched a sweepstakes that awards a total of $10,000 in points every month to riders who have linked their Uber account to Shop Your Way. Every time they ride, members are automatically registered for the chance to be one of 1,000 winners.** Plus, Shop Your Way members who are new to Uber will receive their first trip free, up to $15, and $5 in points.
“After a successful launch this fall in New York City and Chicago, we’re excited to expand the rider rewards program with Shop Your Way to additional cities,” said Jill Schweitzer, Product Manager at Uber.
Uber driver-partners can also earn Shop Your Way points in multiple ways, including:
- Uber Driver-Partner Rewards: New driver-partners who sign up to drive with Uber at shopyourway.com/uber can earn up to $1,000 in Shop Your Way points+. Additionally, Uber and Shop Your Way are issuing hundreds of thousands of dollars in Shop Your Way points to thousands of current Uber driver-partners in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City and San Francisco who simply enroll in the program.
- An Uber Preferred Maintenance Provider: Sears Auto Centers, with hundreds of locations nationwide, is an Uber Preferred Maintenance Provider for driver-partners, offering exclusive discounts and points.
