Kmart has released their toybook for the 2013 holiday season after sharing a list of their Fab 15 Holiday Toys list back in September.
The 44 pages of the toy book have over 400 toys inside. The cover of the toybook says that Kmart is offering free layaway with no service fees, unlike the $5 fee last year. However, when you flip to page 43 and read the terms of service, it looks like Kmart never updated them, since it still mentions a $5 fee for an 8 week contract and a $10 fee for a 12 week contract. If you plan on using Kmart layaway, double check with your local store on the fees.Read the rest of this entry >
Once considered a payment method rendered antique by credit cards, the layaway trend in retail has roared back to life over the past few holiday seasons as more and more big-box stores have been reintroducing layaway programs, many of them exclusive to the holiday season.
In spite of said trend, Best Buy have done away with their holiday layaway service this year after offering customers the opportunity to place a minimum of $250 in merchandise on layaway.Read the rest of this entry >

Last Monday was Labor Day, this Monday started the Holiday Shopping Season, at Kmart.
Even though Christmas was 105 days away and kids on the East Coast were having their first day of school, Kmart went ahead and threw down the holiday shopping gauntlet yesterday. Their first ad of the season aired Monday and features a giant gingerbread man creeping up on a woman working in an empty office. After she encounters the gingerbread man, the voiceover says “Don’t let the holidays sneak up on you. Shop early with Kmart free layaway. … Kmart. Get in, get more Christmas.”Read the rest of this entry >
At the end of last week, we shared with you that Sears Holdings had announced the Black Friday hours for both Sears and Kmart. Today we got a copy of Kmart’s Thanksgiving Sale Ad and the sales are almost as complicated as Kmart’s hours.The total ad from Kmart comes in at 24 pages. 11 of those pages are Thanksgiving doorbuster sales that take place from 6am-4pm on Thursday ONLY. The next 13 pages are sales that are good all three days, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
We suspect that Kmart may still release another ad before too long. This current ad is promoting their Thanksgiving Sale and doesn’t specifically mention Black Friday. Since Kmart’s doing multiple sales, they may have additional discounts just for Black Friday. Sign up for our Black Friday Alerts and we’ll let you know as soon as we hear more.Read the rest of this entry >

Walmart made the news earlier this month by announcing a special layaway option for it’s 2011 holiday shoppers. Then Sears and Kmart declared National Layaway Week to help kick off the holiday shopping season. All of this news about the return of layaway made a splash since the dismal state of the American economy is putting a serious strain on many families’ holiday shopping budgets. Layaway programs largely fell out of favor with retailers and shoppers alike in the last twenty years, with Walmart cancelling their own program in 2006. However, for the 2011 holiday shopping season, Walmart’s press release makes it clear that they want “to help families deliver a big Christmas this year” by reinstating the program. The discount chain also decided to slash prices on some toys beginning September 12th, the earliest they’ve ever done so in anticipation of the holiday season.
But Walmart isn’t the only major retailer out there offering layaway in 2011. Many of your favorite stores are hoping to make the holidays easier on your wallet this year with layaway programs of their own. It’s even possible to do layaway online. We’ve assembled a list of stores where you can pay for those big ticket items over time.Read the rest of this entry >
