Do You Recommend This Credit Card?

Yes
If you are a frequent shopper of Sears or Kmart you should apply for this card, but you will be better served by the MasterCard. If you have limited credit history or poor credit you will more likely be approved for the store Sears card. You can use it to help build your credit history until you have a high enough score to switch to the MasterCard. Also, you want to apply in-store for this credit card to get the special offer for opening an account, which may not be available with the online application.
The savvy consumer that wishes to take advantage of their finance offer for a large item, or the regular consumer that shops at there brand of stores often. Although it is becoming more difficult to find an actual Sears or Kmart location still in business as they continue to close stores nationwide.

Is The Interest Rate Competitive

The interest rate is at a ridiculously high rate of 27.49%. Currently all interest rates are on the rise as the Federal Reserve continues to raise them.

How Do You Like the Rewards

The no frills store card is automatically enrolled in the Shop Your Way Rewards program, and has no added bonus. The MasterCard gives you an above average rewards program on top of the Shop Your Way rewards.
