If you are looking for more information about “Shop Your Way®” and its partnership with Uber, look no further. This blog post is a review of the partnership between Uber and the “Shop Your Way” reward program. Shop Your Way is a loyalty and e-commerce platform that’s partnered with Sears, Kmart, and Land’s End. It rewards registered members with cash-back in the form of reward points after they make purchases from Shop your way or partner businesses like Forever 21, Nordstrom and many others.
Members can use these reward points to make future purchases from their favorite brands. Points can be redeemed in-store or online at Sears, Kmart, Lands’ End, or shopyourway.com on a wide array of products and gifts like clothing, electronics, and entertainment.
Brands like Uber looking for impressive ways to reward their customers have partnered with Shop Your Way. Uber Technologies has experienced a lot of negative press in the past couple of months but the rideshare giant has shown resilience amidst major changes that would have brought other companies to their knees.
In the face of major upheaval, Uber has chosen to focus on improving the driver and passenger experience, and the shop your way partnership is a testament to that.

Availability of the Uber/Shop Your Way Reward Program

Cons Of The Uber Shop Your Way Reward Program
- Shop Your Way points expire 2 months after issuance.
- The Sears Auto Center benefits exclude tires and parts.
- The offer is exclusive to Uber drivers and riders in the U.S
The “Shop Your Way” reward program offers a lot of perks as indicated above but there are a couple of downsides. It would have been nice if this program had been extended to Uber drivers and riders outside of the United States: Even if not the exact promo, maybe something similar for other Uber drivers and riders who would like to make some extra money. Also, adding more partner options where Uber riders and drivers can redeem points will make the promo more attractive.
That being said, this is still a great way to save/earn money which you can spend on items of your choice (sold by some of the popular retail giants). All you have to do is take the time to register on both platforms (Uber and Shop Your Way) if you haven’t already done that. For those that have Uber and Shop Your Way accounts, it will take a few minutes to link your accounts.
