    I’m already in the program and just text the code to the number and it stated I would still get the FREECASH. I DID NOT need to remove myself from the list. Just FYI.

    • deb

      Same here. Thanks!

  2. Ian

    Now you just have to find a Kmart that hasn’t closed. Lol

    • Jessica


    • maya

      u might be able to find items to pick up at a sears as well

      • AP

        This one is in store at kmart only.

        • maya

          Thanks for the information. I thought it was online too

          • Queenjen87

            I actually am showing the offer in my online acct. I think you can use it online.

  3. samantha

    I just did it and I got 10 in surprise points but I have to spend 70 to get it…no thanks

  4. Tonya

    Wow. There are so many exclusions I can’t think of anything to spend it on. No food, cleaning, beauty, pet supplies, healthcare…

    • Jamie

      I usually spend mine on clothes for myself or kids, it’s basically only good on clothes.

    • Amber

      I was going to say socks lol.

    • Jenn

      What about clothes? If not for you and family, hurricane victims?

    • Sam

      So far, I’ve added several different clothing items and they’re not covered

      • AP

        This is in-store only. You might be looking at a different clothing coupon or surprise points offer in your account.

        • Sam

          My $10/$10 coupon is for in store and online. I will keep trying different items though. Thanks

  5. Samara Bic

    I couldnt get it…it kept telling to reply with email but when i did it claimed they couldnt undetstand…kmart is such a pain

    • Lynn

      Me either ๐Ÿ™

    • tam

      Make sure you phone number is on your SWY account. I couldn’t get it to work until I added my phone number to my acccount and then it worked for me.

  6. Lin

    I did this last time too. No surprise points every showed up on my account do I did not. Other going to Kmart because not worth the hassle to try and explain in store.

  7. Anne Kellogg

    Can’t activate mine Rats!

  8. Denise

    Did everybody get the same offer? The link takes me to the Coupon Center, and I have several offers ($5 off $50, $10 off $100). Plus $10 FREECASH in points on $20 (Apparel). I was hoping that I wouldn’t have to spend out of pocket.

    • Heidi

      I am having the same exact issue. The only offer I have for $10 requires me to spend $75 on toys. No thank you.

  9. Amy

    I can’t get the points to work on anything. I tried toys and a rice cooker so far. Won’t apply.

    • Momma

      Clothes, it always works on clothes. Socks or anything like that

    • AP

      It’s clothes only, and in-store only.

  10. Momma

    I got $10 free, thanks!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

  11. Momma

    Check your surprise points. I have an $8 off $8, the $10 off $10 and a $15 off $20 ๐Ÿ˜

  12. eyez

    I just left kmart…. guess I’ll go back soon thank u

    • eyez

      Just tried the text. No points for me

  13. chelsea

    i received the $10 off $10… has anyone found anything the points work on? everything I’ve tried so far has been excluded (all regular price clothing items).

    • Christine Moran

      Same here I can’t get anything that the points will apply to if you find something that they work on let us know

  14. AP

    Hmmm I only got $5. Still happy since it’s free.

  15. AP

    I had a lot of trouble with the free cash last week. It turns out, since it can’t be used with any other coupons, I had a bunch of coupons already loaded to my account and they were conflicting with the free cash. I had to remove all of the coupons from my account before I could use the free cash. Just a tip.

    • Lel

      I had that issue in the store last week. It is really annoying that you can not opt out of using a loaded coupon. I could not use my points which was a better deal. I called sywr and they could not tell me how to unload a coupon. How did you do it? A

      • AP

        From the desktop site on the actual shop your way site. It took me forever to find it too. You go to the page to load coupons, and there is a tab at the top for clipped/loaded coupons. There you can unload any coupons you previously loaded. I’m not in front of it, so going off memory.

    • Goria

      This happened to me earlier today, and I am so upset about it right now. I was able to unload some of the clipped coupons, but unfortunately, I can not unload seven (7) of them, which is definitely affecting the main offer that I want to use ($11 FREE CASH on Clothing and Shoes). I even contacted customer service at SYW, but they can’t unload the coupons either. SMH.

      Please help me if you can. I would greatly appreciate it.

      Thank you.

  16. Blessed

    Last week I got an email saying I had $25 in free cash and I was able to buy clearance pants , slip, and cami without any problems (in store). A couple of weeks ago when I did this text no points every showed

  17. Mike

    So disappointed didn’t receive anything!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)


  18. Mourrene

    I used a $15 off $15 coupon at Kmart which generated $22 in freecash for clothes at Sears. Asked at sears before I started shopping because I know these things can be hinky. Girl said just try it. Ended up with 2 Henley sweaters, a nice blouse and a tank top for .93 because of existing markdowns. You do have to know your shop your way pin though. You can text a number and get it really quickly. One Christmas present down! I was so happy it worked.

    Also, I was signed up already for Kmart texts and still got $10 in freecash.

  19. Jacqueline

    Thank you – I was able to get the $10 free cash

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Awesome! YW!

  20. Roxy

    I wish I could get some for Sears. No more Kmarts here.

    • Kay

      Sometimes you can order online & kmart items will ship to sears stores for pickup

  21. Sam

    I got 10 off 40 ๐Ÿ˜•

  22. Rene

    Got $10. But I can’t get it to work on anything. Anyone found anything that this works on?

  23. AP

    I’ve been replying to a lot of people that this coupon is in store only. I see the post says it can be used online or in store. My coupon stated in-store only. It wasn’t even in the fine print, it was in the title of the coupon. So maybe everyone’s is different.

    • Sam

      This must be the case because mine says in-store and online. It seems that everyone’s surprise points are different.

  24. Michelle Okpisz

    Last time I went through the process and with all the glitches (didn’t recognize my email, etc) I thought it didn’t work. Later I got an email that said I had earned FREECASH which is not a coupon or surprise points. I got $12 and it was only for clothing in store at Kmart. It did work on clothing.

  25. Lila

    I’m I the only one who gat free cash last week? I gat 22 thousand points for sears and 15 thousand for KMART ! Gat pretty amassing deals !

  26. r46016

    I got 10 if i spend 100. Not just 10.

  27. Paulina

    I get an error where I texted SYW and my email, what am I doing wrong?

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Darn! Maybe wait a moment and try again Or reply STOP and text again. Hope this helps!

    • Laura

      I got the same error message.

  28. E

    Mine says in store and online, and it’s on my acct online. But it’s not working… guess I will try in store later this week? I got a few Sears ones recently and was able to score super cheap baby clothes. So grateful for these types of deals– when they work!

  29. Thehenrydthoreau

    This worked on my account with two Peppa Pig toys on clearance for $5/each. My son texted, the response said $10/$10 and he tried with two toys. The cashier used his points instead. The manager and clerk couldn’t find the $10. He just returned everything. Nice timing for holiday donations.

  30. fancy

    This code not working online. Anyone successful in store?
    please share if anyone successful.

  31. Taylor

    Thanks for all the great deals Colin and team ๐Ÿ™‚
    Just curious if anyone knows when Kmart will have their 50% off kids clothing? I took advantage of it the last two times at the end of the seasons but i cannot seem to remember exactly when it was. I keep checking with no luck!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome Taylor!

  32. visitor3

    I got $10 off tools, dishwashers, appliances or kitchen appliances. Maybe a small tool is in the $10 range. Thx!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Awesome! You’re SO welcome!

  33. *Angela-Miles*

    Whoohoo, got the $10. Thanks for the deal Collin ๐Ÿ™‚ . I was just at Kmart today and spent $50 some of which was clothes…looks like I’ll be heading back this week Lol. And just a heads up the Craftsman’s tool were offering 50% back in points. Not sure when that ends, I picked up a few of those.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re most welcome! Glad you could snag the savings!

  34. Beccat

    Bummer, my local Kmart just closed. I used to use SYW to get many of the stocking stuffers free or close to free every year for Christmas.

  35. Sam

    Has anyone had any luck using their surprise points? I’ve tried many different things and the points won’t apply. My coupon says that it can be used in store and online. I have $10 off.

    • Newmom

      Points like these always work on clothing and home dept. Make sure items are not clearance. Also surprise points dont work with coupons. So if coupons are pre-loaded in your account, and they apply automatically, your surprise points wont apply. It has happened to me lots of time. Few items are on offers, for example a home itne you select is discounted by 10% if you order online. So that discount automatically applies, and its same as a coupon. So the surprise points wont work for that item. Really took me a long time to understand.

  36. Nifty

    I tried using it today on a pair of shoes for my daughter. No where could we find the exclusion of shoes but it didn’t work.
    Needless to say I didn’t make a purchase.

  37. Christine Moran

    I have tried everything and nothing works with the surprise points. Even K mart’s own expensive stuff not on sale. I have tried everything that you can think of. I have a 5 off 35 that comes off as soon as I go over $35 same thing should work for the 10 off 10 but it doesn’t

  38. Nina

    I called shop you way customer service they said its in store only ..I told him it does not say that on my account for the $10 but he said it says it on his end and they must have forgot to add it in the exclusions when it was sent out..

  39. Paula

    Got the text back saying I had $10 free cash but it would not apply to clothes in the store I had picked out which was not on the list of exclusions. Customer service could not even tell me why not. There is a $10 on $20 in my account so I’m not sure if that is why it would not apply to $18 item I had picked out. Email did not say I had to spend $20 so I’m confused.

  40. *Angela-Miles*

    I went back to the store today to use my $10 surprise cash and it wasn’t in my account anymore :-/ . Really strange,…it was there yesterday. I went back to my Kmart text and clicked the link, it says expiration of September 24th. Why it disappeared from my account I have no idea. I have no surprise point offers, just my regular points.

    • Sarah

      Me too. I tried to checkout and it was no longer in my account.

  41. E

    Mine disappeared too! Was planning on going to Kmart this weekend. Glad I didn’t make the trip there. Not sure if it’s worth it to email and complain.
