Sears Upgrades Mobile App, Adds Free In-Store Shipping from Mobile Devices
With holiday shopping in full swing, major appliance and household retailer Sears has rolled a refreshed mobile app that includes new features aimed at making it “even easier for shoppers to fill their sleighs with gifts this holiday season.”
"In 2015 we've seen more than a third of our online traffic come from a mobile phone – a 46 percent increase from last year," Leena Munjal, senior vice president, Customer Experience & Integrated Retail, Sears Holdings, said in a statement. "Mobile devices are so much a part of our members' lives and they're not only researching and sharing, they're also buying. So it's more important than ever to have a robust, simple-to-use shopping app with features and services that no other major retailer offers."
On top of the updated app, Sears recently announced a lower minimum purchase threshold for free shipping on qualifying orders to $35, down from $49. And, for a limited time, Sears is offering $5 in points on purchases of $15 or more to Shop Your Way members who refresh their app or for new members who download it.
