It's free to join, and if you wear out any kid clothes or shoes, you can get a new one of the same size for free. I've even heard of someone bringing in a bag of socks, and they've replaced them. This might work well if we work the system, because when one is too big, the next one is the right size.
When we joined they told us they could look up old purchases by our phone number if you lose your receipt. (Which of course I did). Today she told me that they usually need receipts for the non-Sears brands. It takes a little organization but it worked for me. And if you watch for sales you can usually get things cheaper than Wal-mart or Payless anyway. Today I got C a pair for Levi's for $9.99 and shoes for $15.
Now if ony it worked for shoes that were lost. C somehow managed to lose one of each of both of his current shoes. Don't ask me how. He has been wearing mismatched shoes, boots, and Sunday shoes for quite awhile now. I'm sure we'll find them soon now that we got a new pair. He has to pay us $2 for these. Dad told him next time it would be $15.
