This is a sponsored post, I am a Kmart Layaway blogger, though all opinions are my own.
Have you ever used layaway before? I have not, but I remember my mom using it when I was a kid. Back then, layaway used to mean that you picked out items from certain departments, went over to the layaway counter to give a down payment on the total of your items, make payments every two weeks in person, and then finally pick up your items after you make your final payment. K-mart has made it much, much easier. There is an online layaway option, for one. You can pay online and pick up your item in the store after your final payment. What makes their layaway program better than those you find at places like Walmart, Best Buy, and Toys R Us is that there is no minimum item or transaction requirement. Their layaway program is available nationwide, year-round, and on a full-range of merchandise.
When the economy went into free fall a few years ago, layaway became a more popular option for shoppers looking to spread out their payments. With the economy still in the tank, it’s nice to see that K-mart is actually making layaway more appealing so that the holidays can still work for those who are trying to work through these tough times.
