I set off to check my local Kmart for items I may want to get the kids this Christmas with the Kmart Layaway program but found myself lost because few items were there and I had the two boys with me so that is when I checked out and went home to shop from the comfort of my own home. Awww thank you Kmart for allowing me to place items on layaway while shopping from home while the kids are asleep.
My Online Shopping Trip
Kmart was super easy to navigate, which rocked because I work from home so when I am shopping whether in store or online I always want to be fast. I was trying hard to find a Nintendo DS for my daughter but every which way I looked my local Kmart wouldn’t have it for in store pick up so I ended up looking at other electronic and fun items for my kids that would be worthy of putting on layaway. I was able to get three or four nice items that I wouldn’t have been able to get had I not been able to put on layaway.
The economy is tough on us all so Kmart layaway helps us purchase items that we can afford in the long run but not in the present day. The kids will certainly be happy with what I got them on layaway and I am happy because I could 1) shop online and 2) place those online shopping items on layaway with Kmart.
What I like About Kmart Layaway
I love that you can choose between an 8 week and 12 week plan. Since we are close to Christmas I have an 8 week plan and only specific items can be put on a 12 week layaway but still it’s nice to have the option. Another great thing is that you can calculate out payments. For instance, I really want a flat panel television and Kmart has some great prices and a wide selection so if I were to put that on my layaway I would be able to use the Kmart Layaway calculator to determine if the payment options were within my budget!
Love at First Sight
This is only the second time in my life I have a used a layaway program and first for me to have used Kmart’s. I must admit so far so good, I was able to place all of the items in my cart online into layaway and will pay some payments online with some in store then cashing out at my local Kmart store to pick up the kids Christmas gift items.
I will keep you posted on how the payment process goes for both online and in store soon!
