We’ve Got Mail

We’re taking our mailing system to the next level – and you’re invited to come along.

We’ve been fine tuning our new messaging system, turning it into the perfect tool for delivering the latest on the best deals and offers. Now we’re offering you your own ShopYourWay email address – a single inbox for all deals and benefits.

This comes hot on the heels of adding Kmart promotions and Sunday promotions emails to existing messages, to make sure you don’t miss a thing. Create your own @sywmail.com email box, and direct all offers and coupons to one place. Comfy.

Check Your Left Side

 

Speaking of messages did you notice, while looking for them on the left navigation – did you notice the change?

Yes, it’s the new left navigation! Slicker, prettier, better. Aside from looking better, we made it more comfortable to use. It’s now divided into four sections:

  • Shop by – letting you easily find the venue you’re looking for.
  • Manage – handle your stuff on the site, like catalogs and interests.
  • Apps – our ever growing list of great applications.
  • Learn more – help pages, information about various programs – all you need to know about ShopYourWay.

Much easier to use, isn’t it? let us know what you think.

 

And stay tuned.

 

 

 

As Pretty as You Want it

You asked and we listened. After all we do aim to please. So this week we’ve got a couple of new features that make the site prettier – and faster.

Let’s start with the beauty section. The internet is a visual medium, and Shop Your Way is no different. Good looking images make good looking web sites.

To that end, we’ve replaced our old file uploader with a new one, after listening to your feedback. That means that the next time you decide to add a picture to your page, for example, you’ll find the experience much smoother and easier. The end result? Better looking images on Shop Your Way!

Information at Light Speed

Another cool adjustment to the site is adding infographics to pages. Remember those? Beautiful graphics that provide lots of fascinating information about other people’s interaction with stuff you’re interested in?

Well now you can click on an icon in one of your favorite pages and learn how many of the page’s followers are women or men, where most of them come from, the dominant age group etc.

And we’re not just trying to provide you with more info – we want you to get it faster. That’s why we improved our search engine, helping you reach your destination faster.

Enter “shoes” for example, and you’ll find yourself in our shoes category page, instead of the usual search results. Didn’t want to get there? One click and you’re back to the results page. in most cases you’ll discover the system helps you cut the line and get the info you want that much faster.

Lots more coming up. Stay tuned.
