Sears hosts a neat program called Kidvantage. As long as you purchase kids clothing and/or shoes, they will replace the item with a new one of the same size/brand if it wears out. Yes, you heard me right! If your little fellas, crawling on their knees to play cars, wear a hole in their knee, you wash that pair of pants, take them back to the retail store and they replace the garment! And boy, do those 5 and 6 year olds go through the jeans!
Now don’t kick yourself too hard if you didn’t know about this before. It’s one of the best kept secrets around these days.
Some stores/states require you keep the receipt. Be sure to find out when you go in and sign up. One state we lived in did require one to bring the receipt back in with the garment. The state we live in currently, does not.
After $100 has been spent on the Kidvantage program, you receive a coupon, attached to the bottom of the receipt, for 15 percent off your next purchase.
Since they use your telephone as reference when you go in, even grandma could use this plan. My mother-in-law would use my Kidvantage number when she made purchases and received the discount. We rarely new clothes.
