Those who tried to register for Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry may have noticed delays and glitches on August 31. After evaluating the issue, Sears has decided to open registration again. Full text of the press release is below, but make sure to check! All prior registrations are being canceled - so you will need to put your name on the list again!
As you may know, we encountered a few issues with the registration process on Aug. 31, which impacted some people’s ability to register.
Given the sacrifices that our military heroes and their families make, we believe it's particularly important that everyone have an equal opportunity to register. Accordingly, a new registration process will be conducted on Saturday, September 3, 2011 at 1pm CST.
PLEASE NOTE: All prior applications will be discarded. If your readers were able to submit a registry application yesterday, they must re-apply during the new registration time period in order to be considered for the registry.
At the dedicated time, Sears will post a REGISTRATION link on the Sears Heroes at Home website, www.sears.com/heroesathome, where active military members, Guard and Reservists and their families who comply with program guidelines can sign up for the program. Registration will again be on a first-come, first-serve basis and will close once the maximum number of 20,000 applicants is reached.
We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused but want things to be fair for all families. Sears appreciates all the sacrifices that our military members and their families make for our country and we wish them all a wonderful holiday season.
Many thanks again, Tom Aiello Division Vice President, Sears
