This is a sponsored post, I am a Kmart Layaway blogger, though all opinions are my own.
There are only 95 days until Christmas! Let that sink in — the countdown to the holiday season has started! Don’t panic! I know it’s daunting to think of how few shopping days are left to find those perfect holiday gifts for everyone on your list. Kmart just may be able to help you out this year with their layaway program! In our area, Kmart is one of only a few stores that still offers a layaway option to their customers.
I cannot tell you how upset we were when Walmart took away their layaway program a few years ago, it really changed how we shopped for our children’s Christmas and Birthday gifts. One year, we had to forget about buying several larger items on the kids’ wish lists because we couldn’t put them on layaway and once we did have the cash to purchase, the hot toys were sold out! Thankfully, we soon learned about, and still use, Kmart’s free layaway program.
Kmart layaway can help with gift-giving by locking in low prices. The Free layaway promo also waives the usual service fee throughout the holiday layaway season. Layaway is super convenient since payments can be made weekly or bi-weekly AND items can be added to layaway either in store or online! How cool is that? Payments can also be made online, or in store and layaway items can be picked up or scheduled for pick-up, as soon as your last payment is made. With an 8 week or 12 week layaway period to choose from. you can make layaway work for you!
While we still can’t get EVERYTHING on our list, there are a few coveted items that I’m thinking about putting on layaway very soon. Namely a new DSLR for myself, or maybe a thick comfy featherbed for hubby and I? We will also put a few family games under the tree this year so layaway would be a great way to purchase those. So many choices!
The best part about layaway at Kmart this year (besides the convenience) is that we could Win Big if we have items in layaway!
