What’s up with Sears and their credit cards?
Sears has been around for ages since the company began selling goods through a mail order catalogue. These days, they still offer many products, but you can actually browse their stuff by going to a store.
To help facilitate making purchases in Sears stores (among other shops like Kmart and Lands’ End), they offer two types of credit cards. One is the store card, which you can only make purchases at their stores (or those associated with the company), and the other is the Sears MasterCard, which can be used anywhere MasterCard is accepted.

Does it take long to create my account for logging in?
No, not at all. Go to the Citibank page for managing Sears Cards by clicking here. Click the link that says “Register” underneath the login boxes (this link is highlighted by a purple circle in the image from the last question). As long as you have your Sears Card next to you before beginning account creation, the process shouldn’t take more than a couple minutes.

Can I make a payment over the phone?
As far as I could find, there does not seem to be a way that you can make a Sears Card payment over the phone, at least not a way that they make easy to locate. If any of you know of a way how to make payments by phone, let me know in the comments below.
Can I make payments in person?
Yes, you can, and you can do so at more than just Sears stores. You can also make payments on your Sears Card at any Kmart location. To find the Sears or Kmart nearest to you, visit each brand’s store locator online: Sears store locator – Kmart store locator.
