Sears and Kmart launch Christmas Club card
August 17, 2009,
Hoffman Estates, Ill. – Sears and Kmart are bringing back the Christmas Club savings concept through the launch of a card that will allow consumers to put away money for holiday shopping.
“We heard that our customers were concerned about how they were going to pay for their holiday shopping this year, and we wanted to provide a way to ease that concern,” said Susan Ehrlich, president, financial services, Sears Holdings.
Some 33% of Americans who plan to do things differently this year say they plan to use their credit cards less this holiday season, according to the company.
