Once you have enrolled for an account at Sears and you are ready to make your first card payment, there are a few things that you need to know. The best way to go about this is to know exactly what you need to do. The process is not that difficult or complicated, though.
You first need to open an account with Sears by completing the sign on to credit account page on their website. Then you will notice a “Sign on to Credit” button on the main page. Click on that button. Next, you will be taken to the Citibank website dedicated to Sears cardholders. Enter your user name and password into the spaces provided on that page. If you're using your own computer, you can also check the “Remember User ID” box, which will prevent you from entering it every time you need to access your account online. Be sure to follow the directions given on that page and you will complete your application quickly and easily.
Once you've signed up, your card payment is set. It may take some time before the account arrives in your mail address, but don't worry; it's all worth the wait. When the card arrives at your home or office, be sure to cash it in promptly.
Now that your card payment has been processed, you need to learn about your card. Your Sears card will provide you with a number of perks and incentives. For example, your card can be used to pay for gas at many of the retail stores in your area, which means that you'll be saving money every month on your monthly gasoline bill. If you have an American Express card, you'll be saving on your car rental costs as well.
As you earn points toward your purchase with your card, you'll be able to use those points to earn discounts. You'll be able to purchase airline tickets as well as other items for the home. If you've been a cardholder of the Sears Saving Programs program, you'll receive discounts on your home improvement purchases and entertainment expenses. As you continue to build up your spending power with your card, you'll earn cash back rewards that can be used towards future purchases. . . . . . . or towards a shopping spree. The more cash back you accumulate, the greater your chance of having the store cash back items when you need them the most.
Your card is a vital tool in helping you pay your bills and manage your money. Be sure to use it responsibly to help you get ahead.
