Misleading Sweepstakes

Dear Website Manager,

I have recently spent quite a bit of money in my local Sears store. Although mostly pleased with the quality of the products, I am however very displeased with my misleading sales receipt. I was directed to a website that does not exist, and worse yet promised a chance at a $4,000.00 gift card. I can only conclude that the website is malfunctioning, because I cannot see any benefit to Sears by purposefully misleading customers to an out-of-commission website.

I was able to reach the site "planetfeedback.com" and read similar complaints as my own. I would suggest, as a customer who values Sears and plans to keep shopping there, that the website be up and running immediately. If not, unfortunatley Sears will lose my business as well as many others. If this ill-promised gift card is in fact some gimic to draw business in, it is a poor, unethical plan.

Thank you for your time, and I hope this issue is resolved with the utmost promptness.


Adrianne A.

Fix the website in order for customers to actually register for the promised chance of winning a $4,000.00 gift card.

I wish the OP had been able to take the time to read the comments when
she located the complaints here.


And, I wish Sears could find a different way to script the website.

Are you sure that you don't have a pop up blocker on or sometimes you
don't have the correct things installed on your computer,such as

So, you were able to search PFB and find other complaints. When you
read those complaints did you bother to read the comments as well?
Many people posted the reason for the problem as well as a work

And lo and behold, someone was complaining about that very website! I
was like...*insert twilight zone theme here*

I wish one of the people who post these complaints would come back and
talk more about this. I'm just really confused why people have such a
hard time getting to searsfeedback.com, but I have no problem.

Is there a difference between web browsers? I use IE 7 so I don't know
if that has something to do with it...

It's just getting frustrating reading all these letters and not being
able to help.

Each of the posts I have seen has the solution to the issue posted
below it. Did you try the solution suggested?

For me, the Sears feedback website works just fine.

Adrianne A.,
