So we've been getting our money's worth at Sears in the last week or so.
We stopped in there on a whim to check out the mowers last week. We ended up buying a mower, obviously.
Then I noticed on their website that they had a deal on glasses. So I ended up getting two pairs of glasses and an eye exam the other day.
When we bought the mower I got a coupon for $10 off an oil change. I needed an oil change, so I figured I might as well use the coupon and got my oil changed at the Sears Auto Center.
When I bought the oil change, they gave me a coupon for $5.00 off any purchase in the store. I used that to get $5 off the mulching attachment for the new mower.
So we've bought quite a few things from them in the last few days...but let me just explain how much money we ended up saving.
The mower was on sale for $300 off and we got 0% financing for 12 months on it. So we saved $300 and change on the financing with that.
The glasses were on sale for "Two for $99." The sale said that it included $90 standard scratch resistant lenses and the frames. Both frames that I got were $99. Both sets of lenses would have been $180 total. That's $378 worth of glasses, and about $50 for the eye exam. So that's $450 worth of stuff including tax. I actually paid a total of less than $150 on all of it, so I saved over $300 on that.
The oil change with the coupon plus the sale ended up saving me a total of about $20. Oh yah, I forgot to mention that the oil change service was on sale, plus they still let me use the coupon.
Then the $5 off coupon for the mulching kit.
All of this together is a total savings of over $625. That's some pretty good savings on some things that we really needed.
Maybe we should start shopping at Sears quite a bit more often!!!
