Plink announced a promotion today in which they are offering double Plink points for purchases at Sears through August 18th:
Those who have read my posts “Plinking Sears,” and/or “Gift card alchemy” may think that this would be a great opportunity to get 12% back in Plink points when buying $50 Sears gift cards online. Unfortunately, though, Sears’ online gift card purchases are processed by Kmart. So, it is very unlikely that you would get double Plink points for these. Here’s to hoping that Plink will run a similar Kmart promotion soon!
You could, of course, buy gift cards in person at Sears in order to get double Plink points. As long as you make each $50 purchase separately, you should get the equivalent of 12% back in Plink points (which can be redeemed for Walmart or Amazon gift cards).
If you’re interested in signing up for Plink, you can find the latest signup links on my Sign-Up Links page.
