Citi Sears Spending Offer 11X
As a quick background, back in the last century a young kid (my wife) opened up a Sears credit card. Eventually she got married and added her husband to the card and at some point it converted into a Mastercard with a rewards scheme. Then awhile back Citi changed our rewards to ThankYou points!
Note: Some people have the Sears Mastercard that earns Shop Your Way Rewards. That card has 5%/3%/2% bonus categories. The ThankYou version of the card only earns 1X everywhere so I would earn 1,000 points from the normal spend plus a 10,000 point bonus if maxing out this promotion.
Sears Mastercard 11X Spending Offer
It offers 10X bonus ThankYou points in addition to the 1X the card normally earns whenever I use the card for online purchases. Past offers have been more restrictive, but it seems this offer works on all online purchases. I have a lot of those. 🙂
Perhaps the only downside is that my previous 11X offers have had caps of 10K and 6K respectively. This one is a bit lower at 5K, but it is less restrictive on how to earn the bonus.
- This promotion is not transferable.
- To qualify for this promotion, you must activate this promotion before the end of the promotional period.
- You have the opportunity to receive 10X Bonus ThankYou Points (10X Bonus ThankYou Points per dollar spent) on eligible online purchases which total $200 or more (up to a maximum total of 5,000 Bonus ThankYou Points) and which are made with your Sears Mastercard and post to your account between 6/1/18 – 7/31/18.
- These Bonus ThankYou Points are in addition to the 1 ThankYou Point per $1 spent on purchases that you already earn with your card. Online purchases are transactions made via a computer network or other online service, and as defined by the merchant.
11X is 11X, especially when it can be earned for all online shopping. In this case I should be able to earn an easy 5,500 ThankYou points without too much effort. I will probably just use the card when I have online purchases on eBay or other online retailers. I spend thousands online per month for my businesses so that shouldn’t be a problem.
It’s also probably worth mentioning that these ThankYou points can be moved (up to 100K per year) into my ThankYou Premier or Prestige accounts where I can book airfare at 1.25 cents each or transfer them to travel partners.
The Sears Mastercard has continued to impress with these amazing spending offers. I particularly like this one since I can just earn the bonus points right from the comfort of my office. While ThankYou points aren’t the most valuable currency, they have quite a few great uses. I’ll take ’em.
