tl;dr

PM it to me and I'll be glad to use it. Thanks!

Looks like you can use it for Kodak DSLRs and Z Cavaricci jeans

Based on recent news reports, it appears that the coupon simply excludes things Sears no longer sells(which is just about anything.)

The last time I went to Sears, it looked like they're trying to go out of business. Just so many things wrong.

When I was a kid, you went to Sears for everything. If they didn't have it, you ordered it from the catalog.

Sears, at one point, even tried to be a one-stop financial center. Some stores in California had inside a Sears Savings Bank, Dean Witter Reynolds brokerage and Allstate Insurance offices. Not any more. Now, you're lucky to find a pair of socks at Sears.

And if you do, they're excluded from the coupon.

"Not valid on Nicki Minaj..."

Of course not, she sold out long ago.

  sold out of what?

What do they mean it's not valid on "non-merchandise"?

extended warranties?

Seeing the way some over in Hot Deals get pissed about Staples not taking invalid or expired coupons, I'd imagine it's to keep people from trying to pay down credit balances, maybe also not valid on auto work that may be non-merchandise like tire rotation, etc.

Too bad Sears went under, all my hand and power tools were Craftsman at one time. Lifetime warranty was used when my dad snapped a socket wrench trying to remove rusty exhaust hardware with a 3ft pipe being used as extension. We drove to Sears, guy gave him a bag with the repair kit to replace the busted stuff inside the head, no questions asked.

I ordered an exhaust system for my 1984 Escort from the catalog, everything including hardware and hangers from the cat back, installed it myself in the driveway.

They've been on the way down since 1989 when they tried to get rid of weekly sales, but Eddie Lampert put the final nail in the coffin by buying them.

There was a Sears store close to where I live that went out of business a few years ago and a Radio Shack that was in the same mall also went out of business. Sears and Radio Shack are too expensive.

"On return, coupon savings may be deducted from refund"

Sears gets one thing right - when I order online for in-store pickup .. they notify by email, they always have it to you when you walk in the door (pickup near edge of store) after the credit card swipe or bar-code scan, they even offer curbside but I've not tried that. Its almost like they understand the whole concept of ordering things from a catalog. They also frequently have those shopyourway coupons so most of what I buy has been free. They don't really need that big box in the mall because its pretty much a ghost town.

WalMart on the other-hand makes you go to the back of the store for in-store pickup and you can wait 10 minutes before finding someone who can go search in the warehouse .. where things must not really be in any particular order.

Amen to both of your statements.  Sad, sad state of affairs.

Also delivery, on-site assembly of purchased merchandise, or any other premium services they might offer (i.e. automotive).

Sears is terrible at that. Not WalMart bad, that's a class of their own, but pretty bad. I've spent way too much time pacing around the little pickup room they have, waiting waiting waiting.

And God forbid you don't pick up in a week. Product went somewhere else, no product, no refunds, unless you had the manager do it, and they had to do cash.

And Chinese craftsmen.

Efff Sears I can't wait for them to die.
