Here are 10 Practical Ways to Use Your Surprise Points

The more you shop at Sears & Kmart, the more surprise point offers you will get. I check my surprise point offers on . Don’t let them expire! It’s like free money, but if you don’t use them by the expiration date you lose them.  Since every surprise point offer is different, make sure to read the fine print on each offer. Here are 10 practical ideas on how to use your surprise points:

LED light bulb package

#1) Light Bulbs – upgrade to save money on your light bill

The IngeniLED Soft White Light Bulb from Sears is equivalent to 60W, costs around $12.99 and will last 25,000 hours. It’s got 1/6th the carbon footprint & it’s a 100% green product since it doesn’t contain any toxic chemicals. The estimated savings during the lifetime of this bulb is $136 over a standard incandescent bulb.

Cannon bath towels_picmonkeyed (2)


#2) Bath Towels, hand towels and washcloths – get ready for guests with new towels!

The Cannon Egyptian Cotton Bath Towels from Sears are highly rated and come in a variety of colors. Some of my readers like to buy a different color for each family member, but I prefer all white. I have been replacing my old towels with new fluffy white towels using my Surprise Points.

kitchen towel

#3) Kitchen Towels

The essential Home Checkered Kitchen Towel from Kmart is 100% cotton. It washes up great, is really absorbent and comes in an assortment of colors.

Food storage (1)

#4) Kitchen Storage and Organization

The 54 Piece Gourmet Microwave Safe Food Storage Set from Kmart is a great value.

fleece blanket (1)

#5) Blankets -upgrade your blankets or donate them to your local shelter

The Essential Home Fleece Blanket from Kmart comes in several colors and it is machine washable.

sheet set

6) Sheets 

The Essential Home 4-Piece Sheet Set from Kmart comes with 2 pillow cases, a fitted sheet and a flat sheet and is highly rated by customers.

Kenmore cake pan

#7) Cake Pan

The Kenmore 9” Square Cake Pan from Sears such a great cake pan. I can’t rave about it enough!  It doesn’t “ping” or warp in the oven like my grandmother’s lighter weight pans did, so my cakes come out more level.

  • Heavier weight metal like more expensive pans, without the expensive pan price!
  • The ripples in the bottom ensure that cakes come out of the pan easily.
  • Durable non-stick surface makes cleanup a breeze.
  • Comfortable silicone handles
  • Dishwasher safe

toilet seat cover

#8) New Toilet Seat 

A new toilet seat may not be on everyone’s wish list, but they do wear out over time. A soft padded toilet set from Sears is very inexpensive.

Utility Light

#9) Utility Light

The Sentry LEDDK Utility Light from Sears is perfect for when the power goes out, great as a portable project light, and can be used for camping or as a small desk lamp.

craftsman tool bag (1)

#10) Tool Bag

I keep a tool bag filled with road flares, matches, roadside reflectors & tool in the trunk of my car. They are also great for organizing craft supplies. The Craftsman 13” Tool Bag from Sears is a favorite for so many uses.
