Sears Celebrates Dad's Day with Search for Best 'Stache in America Members get $5 in points (5,000 points) for Father's Day shopping by entering the contest at sears.com/DestinationDad

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sears, a leading integrated retailer focused on making shopping easier for its members, has launched a nationwide search for the greatest dad moustache. Now through June 15, moms and kids can take a photo of dad's moustache – or he can snap a moustache "selfie" – and share it at sears.com/DestinationDad to enter the Father's Day "Snap Your Stache" contest.

The dad with the best 'stache will win the ultimate Father's Day gift from Sears – a weekend getaway trip to Lake Arrowhead, Calif. for the first-ever Craftsman MAKEcationSM. There, he'll take his making skills to the next level with master classes from hardcore blacksmiths, rugged woodworkers, cigar rolling aficionados and barbeque pit masters – and have the opportunity to hang with a celebrity. Runner-up prizes include a Craftsman Quiet Lawn Mower and Craftsman MACH Series™ tools.

"Father's Day is about honoring dad with a great gift that suits his individual style – and what better expression of individuality than this unique search," said Imran Jooma, executive vice president, Sears Holdings. "Only Sears has the breadth and depth of gift choices you want, made available in convenient, hassle-free and flexible ways – shipped to your home, picked up in-store for free or even brought right to your vehicle."

Any moustache on any person qualifies and creativity is encouraged – entrants can draw one on, use a sticker, or simply hold a finger to that upper lip*. As a bonus, every entrant earns $5 in Shop Your Way Points (5,000 points) that can be used toward the perfect Father's Day gift from Sears. Plus, Shop Your Way members can vote for their favorite moustache submission, which will enter them into a sweepstakes for 250,000 in points (a value of $250).
