Sears boosts discounts to woo shoppers
Sears and Kmart stores will be offering free home delivery for online purchases over $399 through Christmas.
The move is one of a number of special offers the company is rolling out for the holiday season, including discounts on appliances, cashback and points on purchases made with a Sears credit card.
The retailer has embarked on its most aggressive holiday sales ever this month, marking down its entire inventory by 10 percent to 50 percent. The Kmart chain is taking a similar tactic, with discounts of as much as 40 percent.
"These offers provide substantial savings for our members while making holiday shopping easier and more convenient for them," said Leena Munjal, senior vice president, customer experience and integrated retail at Sears Holdings. "Members have the flexibility to shop online for millions of products and then choose free shipping or free home delivery, including numerous installation options. We are focused on helping members stretch their holiday dollars this time of year, and it all adds up to significant ways shoppers can save, earn CASHBACK in points, finance their big-ticket purchases and enjoy the stress-free benefits and convenience of our online shopping experience."
