When I was a little girl my mom used to work at Sears, and my sister and I would play “Personal Shopper.” We would choose outfits we thought each other should wear when we talked about getting married or having babies or going to school. We would “shop” for our husbands and kids, selecting out the merchandise we just know they would love in the future.
Moving forward about 20 years, on the day after Thanksgiving, my sister and I would pour through the papers looking for the best Black Friday deals, always ending up at Sears. Sears was always a great place to shop for men with all the Craftsman tools and lawn equipment, but now they have the much softer side they so frequently advertise. With the Kardashian Kollection and the Kenmore Kitchen collection, the Ks are enough to get the girl to the door and the rest that Sears has to offer will keep them there!
So why am I telling you all of this? I want to be your Personal Shopper for ShopYourWay, and I wanted to give you a little background on why I would be the Ultimate personal shopper to help you make your Back-to-school purchases.
- I have years of experience and familiarity with the Sears and Kmart brand.
- I will wait hours and hours to find the ultimate product and deal.
- I have a grown 20-year-old son and one going into school for his first time! So I have wisdom and the freshness of the first-time excitement of your little one going off to school.
Did you know that you can access all of the great brands and stores like Sears, Kmart, MyGofer, LandsEnd, PartsDirect and Craftsman right on ShopYourWay.com. You can browse through all of the stores and create catalogs to share with your friends, family and personal shoppers.
For example, when I was browsing, I found the perfect outfit for Jakobi’s very first day of school. I wanted it to be something that looked cute, but was familiar to him so he would be comfortable. It is 100% cotton and has an elastic waist. That means my son would stay cool since we start school in the heat of August, and he would not have to fumble with his clothes when he went to the bathroom for the very first time without mommy nearby. Sniff, my big boy. You can see the Disney Toddler Boy’s Cars Shorts Set right on Sears.com for only $8.99.
Then because I am a ShopYourWay Rewards Member, I would also get 90 points. Below is a handy converter tool that shows you what points actually mean. It means you get cash back to spend on future purchases. I am loving all the ways to save.
I also found a really cute Khaki Button Scooter Skort for my niece. Since I know her, I know that she is in private school and needs to wear a uniform. However, I also know her tastes and can recommend trendy uniform items for her and her mom as their personal shopper. While logged into ShopYourWay (they have made it really easy), all you have to do is navigate to your personal shopper area and get your personalized url (<—that is mine) and share it via email, twitter, blog posts or even on Facebook!
Now my oldest is in college, and he will be starting his Sophomore year. The cool thing about the Personal Shopper program is that by being a personal shopper you actually make a commission by suggesting items to your friends and family when they purchase. So, guess who is teaching her son to be her protege. Oh yeah, make your own money kid, but until then I suggested this Laptop Buddy Blue Desk w/ Removable Light & Cup Holder which is only $9.99. He is always doing his homework on the couch and complaining about the laptop burning his legs! I was able to suggest this lap desk and tell him why he needed it right though the Personal Shopper option above.
Don’t you think I would make the ultimate personal shopper? I can help you out just like I have helped my family! I can show you ways to save, recommend items that I like, and help you find items you did not even know existed. As a product reviewer, I come across a ton of products and know all the ins and outs of what works and what doesn’t, AND if I do not know the answer, I am a part of a very large blogger network where I am sure I can find the answer. I also went to learn first-hand about the Personal Shopping program at the Sears Round Table Event, and I even did a post on how to look like you splurged when you really got a steal from Sears! But, to show you how much I would like you to choose me as your personal shopper, I want to give you the opportunity to shop at Sears, Kmart or LandsEnd by providing you with a $100 gift card that will be good at any of those stores.
