So…. you ready for Christmas yet? HAHA!! The stores seem eager, as usual!
I heard Clark Howard say that the layaway is coming back. Do you guys remember the layaway? I remember it from the 70s, back before credit cards made it all too easy to get into debt. Back then, it was either cash or layaway. Kmart had perhaps the best layaway program. My mom used it quite a number of times for holiday gifts. Their fee was smaller than the competitors' and the products were less expensive than the pricey Sears, Montgomery Wards, and Toys R Us. I'm dating myself, I know! The layway went out of style with the inplementation of credit cards. Now, we make the banks rich and the local stores poor. There have been many a time I wished I could have placed a nice chair or desk on layaway… I always have my eye on sales but sometimes I can't nab the stuff right away. I hate losing a good deal on something I need.
Kmart has the best layway plan, they always have. See how they compare.
But the layaway is BACK, people! Kmart has got it just in time for the holidays. I'd layaway this nice desk. It's a great sale but there's no way I could cram it into my little car. On layaway, Kmart can hold it for me til I convince the husband to pick it up with his big truck. Gotta love layaway.
Not only is Kmart continuing the layaway tradition, they are holding a giveaway! Kmart is giving away one free layaway PER STORE every week in their Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway! The contest runs until November 17, 2012, so get your Christmas shopping done early this year! Check out the details at the Kmart store. I'm very glad the contest is per store, as it increases the chances that I will win!
