Sears Heroes at Home Registration Today!

YET ANOTHER UPDATE:  Sears Heroes at Home – Important Update – Must Reregister

Another Update:  The registration closed after about an hour.  I don’t know how many people were able to register, but I hope it was a lot.  If you were unable to get through, you might want to keep checking back occasionally.  In past years, they have reopened registration for short periods of time after it originally closed.

UPDATED:  I’ve just learned that the address for sign-ups is

This information is second-hand, but it is a reliable second-hand source.  AirForceWife at SpouseBUZZ has reported that the 2011 Sears Heroes at Home program will be accepting registrations tomorrow, 31 August 2011, from 1 to 3 pm CDT.  The official 2011 FAQ page states that registration will open in late August and close at 3 pm CDT, today.  We’re really cutting it close here!’

Over the last several years, the Sears Heroes at Home program has provided over 23 million dollars in financial support to over 62,000 of military families

The site is sure to be overwhelmed, as it was last year, so be patient and persistant.  Hopefully the times and dates won’t change…I’ll let you know if I hear anything different.

    It's working now. Best of luck!

  8. I just got through; it took 30 minutes, but we were able to register!

  9. I tried registering and when the page finally loaded (at 1:31) it said that registry had already closed :( Oh well! Congratulations to those of you who were able to register.

  10. I just got through and it said that registration is closed, but its only 2pm central time. Not happy right now!!!!

  11. It says that registration is now closed :(

  12. thats messed up that they said its over at 3 central time and its now closed and its only 215.

  13. I doubt that they received 23,000 registrations in 30 minutes. I hope they open it up for registration again.

  14. I have been looking all day for a place to register, and I couldn't find it anywhere, when I finally did, it was closed! I am really irritated. I was all over that site today!

  15. I tried to log in too….Tried repeatedly for 30 minutes, but site wouldn't even load. Then came back 15 minutes later and when it did load, it said site was closed. Bummer….

  16. it was to be open until 3 or when max number of people registered they said over 20,000 people registered in 30 mins!!!

  17. i started trying to register at 1300 EXACTLY and haven't been able to register. i've been on hold for almost 3 hours now trying to talk to a rep. super pissed.

  18. really so how do Soldiers find out about this stuff. I mean I work hard have had many deploymenst I find out about at 1330 I tried registering on the site and calling the number on the sears web site. I don’t want to sound ungrateful but how is it every year i find out on the last day and i miss out? the 20,000 who registered probably never deployed, not trying to sound bitter, really i appreciate them for honoring our service.

  19. Just got this message!

    A number of you have expressed concerns over problems encountered with the Wish Registry application process. Given the sacrifices all our military heroes and their families make, it’s 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 you were able to submit a registry application yesterday, you must re-apply during the new registration time period in ordered to be considered for the registry. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused but want things to be fair for all families.

  20. Agree 100% Julia. It is stuff like this that gives the members of the military a bad name. A company tries to do something nice, can only help a limited number, and does it as fair as can be. Then when someone is late, not able to get in and register, etc., their first decision is to call and complain. Talk about being ungrateful. Makes me sick to thing that some feel entitled and will eventually ruin a good thing.

  21. This was actually the first year we register, been in the military for the past 11 years, luckily we found out about this registration on time this year!
    Good luck everyone;)

  22. BUMMER! Didn't make the cut again this year, maybe next. Thank you Sears for being kind enough to give back to us military families. We personaly haven't been one of the lucky ones but want the company to know how much we appreciate the thought anyway!! Thank you again! You guys are AWESOME!

  23. any new info for whent he registration is open this year? I keep checkin back to the sites and find nothing.
