If you’re a member of Shop Your Way, be sure to check your email. There could be free money waiting for you.

The rewards program for Sears, Kmart, Lands’ End is known for giving away pretty generous sums of spending money -- no strings attached.

In a recent email, I received 12,000 “surprise points,” which equals $12 in spending money.

These rewards are in addition to any points you may earn by shopping.

In my case, I haven’t earned any points in nearly a year, but I’ve received bonus rewards totaling about $50.

The only restriction on my latest bonus is that I spend the money at Sears by May 21 on anything I choose except Lands’ End merchandise.

That’s a pretty nice perk.

In addition to Sears, Kmart and Lands’ End, Shop Your Way has several affiliate retailers where you can also earn points.

This is not the first time I’ve gotten surprise points. I’ve received them on a fairly regular basis over the last two years, though I rarely shop at Sears and haven’t stepped foot in a Kmart in several years.

I typically purchase gifts for friends and family with my points. It’s a great way to stretch the budget.
