This is a sponsored post, I am a Kmart Layaway blogger, though all opinions are my own.
I love Kmart. I'll be honest here. There are a lot of big box stores that compete to offer the best deals, but where Kmart stands out is the brands they carry. Good value, good selection and brands I trust.
As far as Kmart layaway goes? When my kids were little and I was working a full time job as a cocktail waitress, the easy layaway for holiday gifts was a lifesaver. Put down 10%, then make payments every 2 weeks over 8 weeks, then bring it home and wrap it up.
It's gotten even better. It's free layaway, and it has some great options. My favorite? Being able to shop online, start the layaway and make the payments. Then after it's paid off you arrange to pick it up. This means not having to go into the stores while people are crowding into them getting ready for various parties and things. Not having to hide what your buying from your family, and to make it even better? Kmart online accepts many payment methods including Paypal, credit and debit. Making it very easy and accessible to use.
Just incase that's not enough? Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway. Oh yeah. If you put things on layaway either online or at the store, you'll be entered to win automatically. If you win, they will pay off your layaway up to 500 dollars. If you've already paid it, they will give you a gift card for the amount of the layaway. So by doing holiday shopping in this really convenient way, it might all be paid for if you win!
Like I said, the reason I like Kmart is the brands, quality and selection. They aren't a speciality store like Best Buy, so I can find whatever handheld console it is that my daughter wants, but also find the electric blanket that would be perfect for my dad. One stop shopping. You could say that other big blue box store has the selection and value but not the brands or quality. Not for the specific things that work for my family.
For my son- I love this Gordon Ramsay Jumbo Chef's Pan, this is the pan size I use for most of the meals in our home, and now that he's doing more for himself he needs one of his own. It's perfect for one pan meals for 4, or for 1 with extra meals to pack in the freezer.
For my husband? This is where the brand/quality is really important. They have the Halex Official Size Tournament Bristle Dart Board. He's pretty serious about darts, and this is a dart board that gets good reviews from serious players.
For my daughter, an electric tea kettle. She believes a good cup of tea will fix nearly everything.
All of these things can be put on layaway online, and paid for online, then picked up once they are paid off. Isn't that easy?
