Do you like shopping for bargains? Do you like getting discounts and product reviews? Do you like creating wish lists for future shopping excursions? Then downloading the Shop Your Way app to your iPhone or Android might be something you'd like to do.
In addition to the app, Shop Your Way also has a personal shopper program you can benefit from.
What Exactly is the Shop Your Way App?
The Shop Your Way app is an app that you can download to your iPhone, iPod, iPod Touch or Android. It is owned by Sears Brand LLC and includes stores such as Sears, SearsOutlet, KMart, Land's End, and MyGolfer.
The app will allow you to:
- create your own catalogs of brands and products you use.
- access stores from anywhere.
- search for products and deals.
- pull up your account and review it.
- redeem points for products you buy.
- receive product recommendations and reviews.
- create wish lists of products you'd like to buy.
- enter sweepstakes (“sweeps”) and win vacations.
How Does the Shop Your Way App Work?
The compatibility of the app requires an iOS device of 6.0 or later and is fully optimized for the iPhone5. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. However, it does require an iTunes account on any of these iOS devices to download the app.
Now, if you are using an Android, then you must have Google Play already downloaded to be able to download the Shop Your Way app.
You can still create a Shop Your Way account the old-fashioned way by creating an account here, but skip the mobile devices and just sign up at the top right where it says “Join or Activate”. You can sign up with an email, Twitter or Facebook account and you can always merge it later with your mobile devices. However, shopping with your phone is so much more flexible and mobile–it's where the action is for most shoppers!
Once you start shopping, you may earn points to redeem for products and deals. You'll receive 10 points for every $1 you spend. You may buy toys, electronics, appliances, and just about anything.
How does the Shop Your Way personal shopper program work?
If you sign up as a personal shopper for Shop Your Way, you can find products that you think your friends or family would like to buy from Kmart, Sears, or Land's End. If anyone buys a product through your personal shopper link, you will get a commission. The percent of commission you earn will depend on how many “clients” you've referred to Shop Your Way. It looks like you won't earn more than one or two percent.
So How Does the Shop Your Way App Stand Out as Unique?
With the Shop Your Way app, you can not only create your own catalogs and share them with your friends, but you can also shop with celebrities. You do this by visiting their listed accounts. Some celebrities such as Nicki Minaj have their own line of fashions and accessories tied into Shop Your Way. Other celebrities such as Kim Kardashian just post some of their favorite products from some of the stores. There are also seasonal holiday catalogs created to check out on the app.

What Do I Think of the Shop Your Way App?
I'm not really sure what to think about the Shop Your Way app. The few reviews that I found complained about how much space the app required as well as how little it really offered. Another complaint that I read was how curbside service was touted when you ordered from your local store, but how infrequently it was actually offered. Many people didn't want to have to go inside the store and pick up the item.
I'd say the ratings were 3.9 out of 5 for the most part.
I would say that if you enjoy Sears, SearsOutlet, KMart, Land's End, and MyGolfer–try it! See if it is worth your time and usage. Happy Shopping!
