Shop Your Way and Uber Technologies, Inc. expand popular rider rewards program to 23 new markets

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:

  • Atlanta
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Connecticut*
  • Dallas
  • Detroit
  • Houston
  • Las Vegas
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • New Jersey*

  • Phoenix
  • Pittsburgh
  • Portland, Ore.
  • Sacramento, Calif.
  • San Diego
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle
  • 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. Uber driver-partners receive 50 percent off all oil changes and 30 percent back in points on all labor at Sears Auto Centers.

Sears refreshed its mobile app with new features

Sears improves home appliance shopping experience by connecting online shoppers with knowledgeable associates in store

New service offers personalized in-store consultative appointments

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., 2015-10-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Sears, a leading integrated retailer, has introduced “Meet With An Expert” – a free and first-of-its-kind service that improves the home appliance shopping experience by connecting online shoppers with knowledgeable associates in store. The new service is available for home appliance products in Sears stores nationwide.

Sears, which carries all top 10 appliance brands and has been home of Kenmore branded products for more than 100 years, understands how customers shop for appliances – the majority of whom research online prior to purchasing in store.

“Choosing an appliance is a big decision, involving many options,” said Leena Munjal, Senior Vice President, Customer Experience and Integrated Retail, Sears Holdings. “Meet With An Expert gives our members a personalized experience that builds on the research they’ve already done online. Our knowledgeable associate will know the appliances our member is interested in and offer advice specific to their needs.”

How it works:

  1. The member visits Sears.com, finds the appliances they’re interested in and clicks the “Meet with an expert in our store” link. The member selects their store, provides basic contact information, and a preferred appointment day – the request can be in the morning, afternoon or evening in a five-day timeframe.
  2. A Sears appliance expert (a knowledgeable Sears home appliance associate) from their local store calls the member back to set up the specific visit time. If the member has a schedule change, the representative will help them reschedule.
  3. On the appointed day, the member arrives at the selected store and goes to the marked Meet With An Expert spot in the home appliances department where their assigned appliance expert will be ready to help them compare models, answer their questions, and highlight product features.

Since launching buy online, pickup in-store 14 years ago, Sears has introduced a series of services that connect the online and in-store shopping experience. The new Meet With An Expert service joins a growing list of Sears’ convenient and time-saving integrated retail options created by Sears’ iRLabs team, including:

  • In-Vehicle Pickup, Return and Exchange in Five – a game-changer and retail industry first on this scale. Using the Sears or Shop Your Way mobile app members can pick up, return or exchange their purchases for free – guaranteed in five minutes or less – without ever leaving their vehicle.
  • Expanded Free Store Pickup – an online/in-store collaboration that allows members to pick up Sears.com or Kmart.com orders at any of each other’s stores – more than 2,000 locations total nationwide.
  • Shopping Recaps – in consultative departments like appliances, members can request an email that recaps information they discussed with a Sears associate in store and includes model numbers and other details. The member can pick up where they left off at their convenience later online.
  • Reserve It – a timesaving service that allows members to reserve apparel items online for them to quickly try on in store.

Meet With An Expert is currently available for the home appliance categories including refrigerators, washers and dryers, stoves, microwaves, dishwashers, vacuums, small kitchen appliances and more, from top brands like Kenmore. To learn more about Meet With An Expert, visitsears.com/expertadvice or view the informational video at https://youtu.be/sCvgE3cPHTA. Meet With An Expert is available in all stores with the exception of Hometown, Outlet and Puerto Ricolocations.
