Bargain of the Week Friends & Family Sale

ONLINE ONLY until 10am Eastern time Tuesday, Nov. 11: Save an extra 5-15% off in certain categories (prices shown reflect discount), and get more off or points back with your Sears credit card and Shop Your Way store loyalty card. Some of the prices for major appliances are LOWER than Black Friday. Be careful. Sears has voided certain coupons (like $100 back in points), and not taken any discounts or lower discounts than the exclusions state for some items. You must combine savings offers (coupons, points, Sears card use, F&F, spending $500+, etc.) to save the most. For comparison, see the Sears Black Friday ad here.
