Summer is but a distant memory and stores are already getting you set for the holidays! Kmart is prepping for the season by launching the “Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway”.
That means there will be one layaway giveaway per store per week every week from 9/9/12 through 11/17/12.
If you have any holiday gifts you've wanted to put on layaway, you might as well do it during the promotion so you have a chance to win (plus you'll be set for your holiday shopping without all the December stress!)
If I were going to put something away on layaway, it would be a hot new electronic item or something I know my kids really want. You don't want to be the mom that promises this year's HOT TOY and then have it sell out before you even make it to the store.
Remember beanie babies? Tickle me Elmo? Zhu Zhu pets? I bought a zhu zhu back when they were $9 and had it ready for my son at Christmas time. By early December, they were selling for over $60 on ebay! It was all I could do to hold on to that toy for him....
He was happy, and you want your kids to be happy this season too. If there is something you really want (and you think others will be hot for it too) it might make sense to get it early. Even September early.
For me? I am starting to get interested in the new iPhone. Sure, I never check messages, call anyone, or remember to bring my phone with me, but what the hay. It's a mini computer, and I like it.
It goes without saying that I would also need a pink rhinestone case. I've personally never used free layaway, but it just might be time to give it a try. I'd love to win the giveaway.
