The Canon Powershot SX170 IS has received some pretty decent reviews, enough that it would make for a great camera for personal use or for travel. It has a nice zoom – 16X optical – with 16 megapixels and optical image stabilization. The camera can shoot 720p video and has a nice, wide 28mm lens to allow for all kinds of shots.
This camera retails for $179 but is available everywhere (including Amazon) for $149. That is including Sears, which is also giving $67.45 in points with the Shop Your Way Rewards program towards future purchases! To be combined with that are coupons that you can load onto your SYWR account and get an additional $10 or $15 worth of points loaded on. Of course, this deal is made sweeter by going through your favorite shopping portal to earn the most points possible.
The part that makes this the deal is that, if you are in the market for a camera, you are going to pay the $149 but you will get up to $82/$77 in points to spend at Sears again. That includes rolling the points to be used on the camera again, earning another round of points and lowering the out-the-door cost on the camera to $77 (before tax) – this is if you purchase the same camera again. It makes a nice way to get a gift for someone while getting a lot of points for the future or for getting yourself a camera that will work better than your smartphone.
Sign-up Shop Your Way Rewards
Sign-up an account for the Shop Your Way rewards network so that you are ready to go with your account. Here is the link. Some people may qualify for special coupons and surprise points as well – so, you could save even more! These coupons include the $10 and $15 in additional points.
The Shopping Portal
First, choose your shopping portal to earn points. If you do not want to wait or call to make sure you get the e-gift card quickly, you can always just go through the portal directly to Sears to buy the tablet. Doing so will not earn you an additional 2,500 points, but it may be more worthwhile to you to get the tablet in case it sells out first. If you have a Discover card, ShopDiscover will get you 10% cashback from Sears!
Shop at Sears
Now that you are at Sears, search for the “Canon SX170.” Once you make your selection, you will see on the side that it says you will earn 67,450 ($67.45). Go through Checkout, apply any coupons you have available (that you loaded back in the SYWR section), and pay! The points should post shortly and you can use them right away – if before you have received your camera!
