Don't $50 Giftcard Recipients "HAVE" To Use Layaway or No?(CAFEMOM ANSWER)

confusedcredit cardshrugging

I am confused... I basically was under the impression as $50 Kmart gift card recipients part of what was expected of us, in using the card was to Use the Kmart Layaway and then post a review of it on here?

If that is true, why are so many people getting things online or bringing home their hauls in one shopping trip on the same day?

I know I would prefer to bring my haul home all in one day too (even though I think it is awesome a layaway is available if needed : D )

Or was the requirement we had to at least "CHECK OUT" the layaway but not necessarily HAVE to use it?

Can anyone clarify this for me BEFORE I go shopping so that I am sure to follow the rules correctly?
CAFEMOM do you know?

THANK YOU!!!

UPDATE:

I private messaged Cafemom and they said as they did in the original letter:

While you are shopping in Kmart we ask that you try or at least check out Kmart's Layaway plan.

Thats horrible! ive always had a great experience with it! and i check my receipt and make sure everythings there before leaving the store. but we live in a small town so that may be why i've had a better experience! i would be raging! lol.

Ouch. That would bite :(

iHEAVENn, my mom's layaway was lost once (she used to use layaway at least 2x a year when we were growing up). They replaced everything that they still had in stock, and then gave her back the $ for items they couldnt replace. Unfortunately, the 'it' toys were the ones not in stock and the ones that we wanted most.

I don't know if you have a response like this yet -- but I think there are 3 different KMart influencer programs. 1 for Smart Sense products (which I was in and was told to shop online for it because after I agreed to it I realized my closet Kmart is 100+miles away --still not all familiar with this town.) 

then there's the Holiday shopping one and the layaway one.

From what I read it just says to CHECK OUT the layaway program. No where does it state that you MUST use layaway. **Unless I am totally missing something :P

The message they sent me told me to at least check it out and I did but have decided not to use it.

That happened to my sister two years ago... but thankfully they were able to order it from another store and get it to her. They also gave her a discount for THEIR mistake.
