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 regular 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.
Who Will Get the Most Out of This Credit Card
The savvy consumer that wishes to take advantage of their finance offer for a large purchase, or the regular customer that shops at their brand of stores often.

Is The Interest Rate Competitive

The interest rate is only slightly lower than what other store cards offer.

How Do You Like the Rewards

This card doesn't come with any rewards for spending, but you can combine it with the Shop Your Way program and receive additional points when you complete a purchase with both. This card only comes with periodic financing offers and coupons. The financing offers vary from quarter to quarter and are for specific purchases only.
