Customers can use the Sears Card at all Sears, Kmart and Lands' End stores, while the Sears MasterCard works at all Sears stores and affiliates, as well as anywhere MasterCard is accepted. The Sears Home Improvement Account card is a way for customers to finance large Sears purchases such as appliances and home improvement services.

A customer can additional users at no cost through the online account. An additional user can be anyone the cardholder wants to authorize to use the card.
