But wait, there’s more! Want to learn how to earn points just by playing free games on Shop Your Way?  Keep reading….

So, you’re all signed up with Shop Your Way (endearingly referred to as “SYW”) and you’re ready to earn points! Great! Aside from earning points through purchases, SYW members receive points by playing Sweeps and Instant Win games. There’s quite a bit that goes into Sweeps, but we’ll cover the basics for you here! 🙂

First and foremost, the quickest way to get to Sweeps is by clicking this link: . This link will take you directly to the Sweeps homepage where you can find anywhere from 10 – 35+ active Sweeps and Instant Wins.

What are Sweeps and Instant Wins on Shop Your Way?

Sweeps and Instant Wins are games that have been created for the enjoyment of SYW members. Members win points that are good towards purchases at Kmart, Sears or Lands End. The theme of these games typically range from home goods, to tools, to even baby gear and kids toys, and let’s not forget $50,000 cars!! Each game is different and just as fun as the last! For Instant Wins, you will either spin a wheel, play plink-o, scratch a scratch card, or shuffle thru a deck of cards to see if you’ve instantly won points or a prize. For a sweepstakes, you use your daily plays to earn entries into a drawing that is completed at the end of the game cycle.

Each Sweep or Instant Win has different rules, points payouts or prizes, and end dates. Each game has eligibility requirements determined by the sponsor of that particular sweep, and as such not everyone will be eligible to play every game. We always recommend reading the Official Rules for each Sweep, as they vary per game. It is highly suggestable that you save at least 1 of your “additional entries” in case that particular game becomes a “door buster” before it’s end date!

What is an additional entry?

Additional entries are extra plays that a member can earn by doing various activities, such as sharing to Facebook or Twitter, answering a poll question, watching a video, entering a code, etc. The details of the game will tell you whether it is a “daily play” – which means a member can play once daily until the game ends. (Game plays reset at 1 AM EST) The additional entries are IN ADDITION TO these daily entries and should be used AFTER your daily entry is complete. However, like I suggested above, you should hang on to at least 1 play in case the Sweep becomes a doorbuster.


What is a doorbuster?

A doorbuster is an extra little treat that is offered randomly throughout the duration of some of the sweeps. There is no rhyme or reason as to when they appear, and they won’t always show for everyone at the same time. When a game goes into a doorbuster, the banner in the top left corner of the game image will turn Pink and flash “DOORBUSTER” as depicted below.


Each doorbuster awards a different amount, usually either $1, $3 or $5. You do not have to win during the game play to receive a doorbuster! It is important to note though, that even if you get in during a pink banner, an awarded doorbuster prize is not guaranteed. There are a limited number of doorbuster prizes available, and once they are gone the sign disappears. IF your doorbuster banner doesn’t disappear after your 1st play, DO NOT play again. You can only receive 1 doorbuster prize per pink banner.

How Do I know what/if I won?

Awesome question! 🙂 If you win during an Instant Win game, it will tell you directly on the screen whether you won points or a prize. Missed the prize notification on screen? No problem! SYW sends you a confirmation email to the email address you used to sign up! 🙂 If you won a large amount or a prize, you will have to fill out the necessary forms to claim this prize. No worries though the Sweeps department will get that out in an email to you!

What are these points I’m playing for?

Points are awarded by either playing Sweeps or by making purchases thru Kmart, Sears, Lands End or SYW. Points won on Sweeps or Instant Win Games are usually only good for 14 days. However, if you have won a large amount – usually the grand prize – those points are valid for 365 days! Items sold by Kmart, Sears and Lands End can be purchased by redeeming your points!

Where can I get my hands on more plays?

Funny you should ask! Win It is going to be your new go-to app! Win It is an app for iOS and Android mobile users where members spin 10 times daily for their chance to win points or a prize of their choosing! As is suggested with Sweeps, it’s always best to make sure that you’re staying up to date on the official rules for Win It. Screenshot (16)
