This is a good deal if you need some dress shoes and may be better, depending on what bonus coupons you may have and how they reduce the points earned (can't really tell now that they removed the point preview during checkout).

I had a $7 off $50 or more and $4 surprise points to make it:

-$7 ($7 off $50 coupon)
52.99 +free shipping

Paid $50.99 in points I had banked and was told I would get about $33 (reduced from the stated $37.39) back in points by someone in chat.  The immediate return for me was a paltry $0.58 in points on a $2.13 out of pocket cost, according to the receipt.  I'll call the rewards center if it doesn't get credited the amount within 48 hours, but the base deal, when paying the full amount out of pocket is quite reasonable (effectively $22.60 +tax on $59.99 for nice dress shoes).
Update 4/24/17:  Officially, I was wrong about the rolling of points, but because I had chatted someone about it and explained that it was a factor in my buying them, the retroactively awarded me points.  I'm not sure how I'll go about it in the future, since they removed the points-to-be-earned summary during checkout (gee, it's as if they're trying to hide something), but I provided SYW with feedback about adding the point summary back in to avoid annoyed customers and call center workers wasting time.  Anyway, the deal paying all cash out of pocket was still good, one just needs to figure out how spending points changes the dynamic, since Sears/SYW now hides that information.

Can't find that style on Sears.  Do you know the name of the style?
