Sears Corporation Offers $20 To Residents Affected By Oklahoma Tornadoes (PHOTO)


If you live in or near Oklahoma, you might want to check your email.

Reddit user jargo1 shared a message from the Sears Holdings Corporation that turned up in his inbox today. The letter offered $20 to help cope with damage from this week's tornadoes.

The email reads:

In the wake of the recent tornadoes in your area, I want to extend a hand during this difficult time on behalf of Sears Holdings Corporation.

We have added $20 in free points (20,000 points) to your Shop Your Way Rewards account. Please use them toward whatever supplies you need from Sears or Kmart through 5/29/2013. It's a small gesture to help our Shop Your Way Rewards members.

Thank you, and stay safe.

The email also cropped up on a Slick Deals forum where rewards members said they got anywhere from $5 to $15 from the company -- even though some live nowhere close to the disaster zone.

Several other corporations, like Home Depot and Walmart, also found ways to help out when Superstorm Sandy struck the Northeast.
