The smarter side of Sears

Sears has actually turned into a pretty decent place to shop. They have a wide selection of items, good prices, and they've finally addressed most of the failings of what was once a pretty crappy web site. You can shop in person, order online for delivery, or order online for pickup within an hour if you're in a hurry.

They also sell books and music. Their book prices are nothing special, but their CD prices are significantly cheaper than Best Buy, and they somehow manage to be cheaper than Amazon, too, even with sales tax and shipping.

On top of the decent prices, you can usually find Sears gift cards for 10%-15% off through eBay, Card Avenue, or your local Craig's List. You'll get a similar 10% directly from Sears, but you have to give Sears your entire tax rebate check.

I was rather surprised by Sears, which is why I'm posting about it. I'm more than happy to see it if only so that Amazon, Target, Kohl's, and Home Depot have to compete harder for my business. Maybe I should buy the stock...
