layaway

 I havent used Kmart layaway in years.  I don't think I have actually stepped INTO a Kmart in atleast 2 years.  The one in my town is disgusting, the employees are rude and usually absent, it's over priced, and the shelves are often empty.  About 4 years ago I did use the layaway for a Nintendo Gamecube system because Nintendo set  the price on that not Kmart.  That is the only things I would consider putting on layaway because Kmart has higher prices on many items that other store.

I would really suggest using the Kmart.com website. It was SO easy to use, I didn't have to deal with lines, and they had AMAZING deals. Really. I got some t-shirts that my husband will love for TWO dollars each.

So yeah. I'm sorry about your experience. We don't have a Kmart in my town anymore, but I remember it wasn't the best place... probably why it's gone now... but the website was great!

I would use the online store also. You can do a layaway on there and they really do have good deals.

IMO, layaway is a bad idea.  You are better off saving your money and then purchasing it later.  Rarely do prices go UP as we get closer to the holidays :-)  Plus if an emergency comes up, then you have the money. 

My sister just bought a computer on layaway - as a tax accountant I could barely stomach the idea.  Christmas clubs - ok, layaway, avoid.

Interesting..why? I know some places will charge fees, but Kmart doesn't. They don't do a financing thing. What is a bad thing about layaway?

I just got my son 2 layaways out of Kamart.  I was so happy that the one Kmart in this area did it.  I was upset about how old there computers were & how slow the staff is.

I know I've heard this a lot.  I can say though that since Kmart came out of bankruptcy, they have improved on having merchandise in store, especially their sale merchandise.

I am a little biased when it comes to Kmart but in my area where we have a Walmart and Target nearby along with Best Buy and a few other big stores, Kmart prices are very comparable to those of the other stores.
