This is hilarious. There's no way RBC would have had to pre-pay for these, would they?

I wonder if this is Sears' way of getting shoppers in the door.

Right until the end?

I don't think they were accepted at the HMV liquidation.

It's also possible that this is a sunk cost for RBC - they might have a ton of these sitting in their warehouse and want to get rid of them while they're still worth something.

How does one get apart of this deal when I don't have a RBC card/points?

Can't use gift cards first Sears Travel online. Perhaps they still have B&M booking centers?

I bought them when they were 20% off. I got the cards in mail within 1 week.
Also there is no option to pay online orders by gift card. You have to order using your credit card then call CS to have the credit card refunded.

didn't Sears announce 3 days ago that they are closing all their stores?

Wonder how fast they'll close, and if they don't accept gift cards during liquidation we would have wasted our points?

this will be a highly risky venture, but if you can get 50% off GC and then buy final liquidation stuff for 75% off in store, then you'll be a real winner there....

An Ontario Superior Court justice on Friday approved a motion to liquidate all remaining Sears Canada stores, ending a retail empire that served generations of Canadians.

This is hilarious!! Maybe I can get some new underwear.

I hope the sears liquidation isn't like the Target liquidation. During the target liquidation underwear was like 20% off MSRP. But then, you could go somewhere like the bay and it's 30-40% off on a sale. So the liquidation prices from bankruptcy weren't even competitive which I found funny.

I believe someone said that the web prices basically jumped upwards after the announcement that they were going to close off all the stores. That would make sense as they could then drop the prices to make it appear like its a great deal. Their objective isn't to liquidate as in giving it away but to get as much $ as possible before that final discount. Shop earlier = best selection. Shop just before closing = best discounts but poor selection. I was in the a HMV mall store just before they closed off and staff was already packing much of the merchandise for shipping to another store. Good deals to be had but a lot of the stuff that I would have bought we probably already packed off.

this right here is the greatest failure of the department stores.....
They think consumers are still stupid like in the 80's while not realizing we have instant internet on our phones now to look up anything we need

even in their last hours they don't seem to learn.....
