I suppose that it sort of makes sense.
A little history, and correct me if I'm wrong.
Sears used to have two cards:
- Sears Charge - everyday items
- Sears Charge Plus - big ticket items, usually with deals like lower interest.
In the 1990s just about every "store card" was changed to a Visa or MasterCard. So Sears Charge became something like a Sears MasterCard but the Sears Charge Plus still lingered (25 years, it seems).
At this point, with higher limits on cards being common, anyway, it kind of makes sense that it just becomes another card. About 10 years back I bought a washer and dryer from Sears and they offered the Sears Charge Plus and I just said, "Nah - just put it on my Visa and I'll pay that off next month." It just wasn't worth even bothering. My Visa had a lower interest rate, anyway.
