Sears is better known for their Kenmore appliances and Craftsman tools, but they’re branching out . . . into the travel business.  If you’re wondering why you should book a cruise at the same place you get your dishwasher and wire cutters, it’s because Sears will let you pay for it the same way . . . on LAYAWAY.

Sears announced they’re branching out . . . into the travel business.

Their website Sears Vacations  went live on Wednesday, and they’re offering more than 100 travel packages for less than $399.  A Bahamas cruise is available for $169 . . . a weekly rental in Mexico is $399 . . . and hotels in Las Vegas are $35.

If you’re not sure why Sears thinks they can compete with Orbitz, Expedia, or Priceline, you’re not alone.  One travel expert said, quote, “Best of luck.  They are going to need it.”

But Sears does have one thing going for them that the other travel sites don’t:  They’ll let you buy your vacation . . . on LAYAWAY.  So you can book your trip and pay it off gradually over time.
