It is possible for you to apply for a Sears credit card online. The Sears credit card in question is issued by Citibank, working in partnership with Sears (the retailer). Under that arrangement, it is actually Citibank that extends the credit line accessible through the Sears credit card. Thus, when you pay for something using the Sears credit card, or when you access a cash advance through the Sears credit card, it is Citibank that lends you the money. Subsequently, it is to Citibank that you repay the money hence lent to you. But Sears comes into the equation because, if you take up a Sears credit card, you get to earn rewards points whenever you pay for something at a Sears store using the card.
You can opt to simply get a Sears Card, which can only be used at Sears, Kmart and affiliated stores. Or you can opt to get a Sears MasterCard, which you can use to pay for stuff anywhere in the world where MasterCard is accepted, and to obtain cash advances in ATMs that accept MasterCard.
