Calling all Shop Your Way Rewards Members!

Hop on over to Kmart where they are offering $5 in Freecash Points on any $5+ toy purchase when you sign up for Kmart text offers by texting TOY to 56278. Even sweeter, you’ll score this Freecash every month! That’s potentially a free toy every month… so awesome!

Your $5 in points will be valid both in-store and online and will automatically be added to your Shop Your Way account to be used between the 15th and 29th of each month. Any unused points will be forfeited after the 29th. Note that you must request points be applied at checkout if shopping in-store.

HIP TIP: If you are already signed up to receive text offers – text STOP to 56278 (to unsubscribe) and then text TOY to 56278 and sign up again.

    Since our local Kmart closed, I checked to see if items would ship to our local Sears, but I’m not finding anything. Hopefully others have better success.

      Same boat here. I have found some LEGO sets that will ship to sears as well as a monster jam set and hot wheels 5 packs or sets (will be hard to find a $5 item) OR you can add a toy to an order so that you are at $25 for free shipping to your house to use the toy points. You just can’t use any other free cash offers, but can use regular points to pay.

    When I tried to use FreeCash at my local Sears, the cashier informed me that they have no way to determine if the FreeCash is used or if Points are used. Unfortunately for me, points were used and I didn’t know until I got home and checked my account. I called Shop Your Way and the associate said that there was Nothing she could do. I would have to drive back to the store to return the item and then I could try to redeem the FreeCash again. Not very helpful. Again. hopefully others have better success.

      MrsK – I replied to your comment but it went to the wrong spot! I check my receipt before leaving the store or I check out at customer service to be safe. That way I can fix it and get my base points back. Happens more often than not.

    I think the points will be valid from 15th to 29th of the month … if I m correct ?

    I already get texts from Kmart. When I texted the word toy, I got a message back that said “You’re already in! Get 5 dollars in Freecash for the next purchase on toys”. Does this mean that I’ll get the $5 each month or is it just a 1x thing? Do I need to text STOP to get the $5 monthly? Thanks for any advice anyone has.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Kris! Yes! Sounds like you are all signed up!

  5. Mrs.W

    My local kmart closed about a year ago! I miss all these good deals with their points!

  6. ginger

    Did the $5 show up in your account immediately after texting the word toy?

  7. Jenny

    So do you have the points loaded to your card to USE on the $5 purchase, or you get $5 in free cash AFTER making the $5+ toy purchase?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Jenny! They should be loaded to use on the $5 purchase. Hope that helps!

  8. Samantha

    Do the points show up right away or not until the 15th? The text said I am in but the points are not showing yet. Thanks

    • Darlene

      Check account to see offers. Free cash isn’t usually added until purchase, so it isn’t in total of regular points.

    • kelly

      I am still waiting on my points where i bought $50.00 worth and then was suppose to get $25.00 back it has almost been a month and still have not seen them i called them and they told me to wait until the 30 days, well it has never taken that long before ususally 24 hours after the sale. so good luck.

  9. Michelle

    I’ve been told the same, unfortunately. I also had the same experience as occasionally my base points have been applied (instead of FreeCash) and the cashier cheerfully explains, “It worked!” because I had enough base points to cover the transaction. I always check my receipt before leaving the store, even though I’d rather go paperless. However, lately I have been checking out at customer service and she showed me the screen where it shows your FreeCash is being applied. I have had so many issues, I’m not sure why I’ve bothered going back. They just keep having new offers, tho, and I’m a sucker for a great deal.

    • Darlene

      Not all sales associates realize what points you have or the exclusions to the points being used. Account needs to be looked up by email /phone number. Know your points before purchase, saves errors.

  10. Alysha M.

    I never get any kind of response when I text that number.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      DARN! Maybe try texting STOP and then try again. Hope that helps!

  11. Darlene

    The easiest way to check points and offers is to add the SYW app to mobile device. if there are a lot of regular points, use them, then add $5 item, total should include surprise points. Will only use one coupon or surprise point offer at a time. It is easier to check order on your device before purchase then to make return. If points expire, may not get them back. If ordering online spend $25 to get free shipping , taking $5 off is still a deal.

  12. Michelle C

    Text the word DEAL and get a free mac n cheese, can of tuna or 10 pack of kids drinks.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Sweet! Thanks for the heads up!

  13. Kelly

    Is there any way to tell that it worked, and will credit between the 15th and 29th of this month? This one didn’t ask me to log into my Kmart account like the previous offer.

    • andrea

      I got a text today indicating that the $5 in freecash was available. Went to KMart, bought a couple toys, and was able to apply the points at checkout with no hassle.

  14. Lorrie

    Is anyone getting this to work? I did the text message and I am not seeing the free cash nor will it apply to a toy item in my cart… argh!

    • Sara

      Same here!

    • Yan

      This is not working on my end too. Freecash is not showing

  15. Susan Roso

    I received an email that said I could receive $5 in freecash. But when I I hit redeem button I find to way to get it.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm, maybe try again in a different browser. Hoping that might help!

      • kelly

        you have to go to kmart and buy a toy that adds up to 5.00 and then you will get the points, that is how it worked for me.

  16. kelly

    Has anyone else having problems getting there reward points? I have been waiting a month now and they will run out the end of this month and i still do not have them, they told me to wait until a month and it never takes that long usually 24 hours.
