Are you thinking about the holidays yet and buying gifts? I’ve been scoping out deals here and there and picking up a few odds and ends for my stash. I do love the excitement of the holiday rush but I hate the last-minute panic when you’re still not done shopping.
Of course you might not always have the money you need to pay for the things you want to buy as soon as you see them. Some stores allow you to layaway items and Kmart’s layaway program is great. You can easily get a jump on your holiday gifts lists without breaking the bank all in one fell swoop.
What’s so great about Kmart’s programs? First, they offer free layaway. When you make a layaway purchase between now and November 17 they’ll waive the $5 service fee on an 8 week contract and the $10 service fee on a 12 week contract. So you can lock in the low price you find in stores today and pay it off over time for free! Sweet! We desparately need a new TV and I found a nice deal on this Panasonic 50″ Plasma. What would be even nicer is to not have to shell out the money for it all at one time.
See how Kmart’s layaway program compares to other retailers. Use it to layaway anything, online or in stores, no minimum amount, and do it for free. Seriously. You can’t beat that.
Okay, maybe you can beat that. They’re giving us the opportunity to win up to $500 toward our layaway balances with Kmart’s Big Layaway Giveaway. Every week for 10 weeks Kmart is choosing 1,235 people with current layaway credits to give up to $500 toward their balance. Wow! I had to read that a couple times. That’s a a total of 12,350 people who will get some help with their holiday layaway purchases.
Don’t wait until last minute to start your holiday shopping with Kmart makes it so easy to get a jump start, helps you stretch your buck, and does it for free with the chance to win some nice help paying off your balance. Sounds pretty awesome to me!
