Win Back Your Fort with Kmart’s Semi Annual Home Sale

Disclosure – This is a sponsored post. I am a Kmart blogger, though all opinions are my own.

Nothing livens up your household (and your spirit) like a newly decorated home. I just moved this fall and I’m in desperate need of decorating the new house. This spring, we’re hearing things like ‘grey is the new beige’, ‘blue is in’ and ‘light wood finishes are back.’ Redecorating your home every time a new trend arises can be cruel to your wallet. Cue Kmart’s Semi Annual Home Sale!

For many of us, winter has wreaked havoc on our homes. Endless snow days this year and lingering holiday décor has stopped us in our tracks. Not to mention all the boxes that I’ve been slowly unpacking. Now that spring is around the corner, it’s time for a change. Are you with us? At the Kmart Semi Annual Home Sale, you’ll find major savings on décor and furniture for your bed, bath, living room and kitchen.

From bright colors to fresh finishes, you’ll save on everything you need to take your home from winter blues to stylish in spring. And with the points you’ll earn on redecorating, you’ll be able to redeem them on next season’s decorating trends (whatever they may be)! Plus, if you’re a Shop Your Way Member  you’ll get $5 back in points on every $30 spent in home purchases.

You won’t be able to stop watching this mash-up of customers doing the Kmart Layaway Dance! Dare we say it’s the latest dance craze? If you’re wondering what it is about Kmart Layaway that makes people spontaneously breakout in catchy dance moves, you should probably keep reading this.

At Kmart, Layaway doesn’t start and end with the holidays. You can use Kmart Layaway all year round for celebrations such as birthdays, re-decorating or baby gifts. In addition, Kmart Layaway is available online and in stores. It’s simple: pick out the times you want, start with a down payment, make payments every two weeks (online or in store) and take your items home with you after your final payment (cue: Layaway dance)!

Pro tip: Remember to give yourself plenty of time before you need the item, most Layaway contracts last about 8 weeks, so planning ahead is key! Plus, Shop Your Way Members get points on every Layaway purchase and exclusive Layaway offers.

Have an item in mind you’d like to put on Layaway? You know it’s about that time to start thinking grills and patio furniture! Get ready to practice your dance moves because you’re going to want to break out in a Layaway dance too!

Kmart Layaway

Wow – the countdown is already on for the holiday season! Although many of us don’t start shopping, decorating and celebrating until after Thanksgiving, there are a few holiday ‘musts’ that you need to start sooner rather than later (we’re talking right around Halloween). First, putting your big (or small) items on Layaway. Since most Layaway contracts are eight weeks long, this is the ideal time to shop now and pay over time. You don’t want your wallet to go into shock on November 29th, do you? Didn’t think so. Still need convincing? Here are a few ‘Layaway Lessons’ to keep in mind:

1.) The cat ate your Christmas tree. OK, so even if you don’t have a cat but last year’s Christmas tree was on its last limb and this is the year you need a new one. On the other hand, maybe you just got a cat and the days of having a real tree are over. Either way, you need some new decorations. Pick up a pre-lit tree (because that’s the way to go), LED lights, wreaths and village houses now and pay them off in plenty of time for decking those halls!

2.) Your gift list has grown. Maybe you’ve found a new group of friends, entered into a new family or you’re just feeling extra generous this year. Long gift lists call for Layaway. Fill your cart to the brim and roll it over to the Layaway counter. Your pals won’t know you paid their gifts off over time.

3.) Money is tight this year. It’s not just you; many of us are watching our spending. If you’re having trouble staying afloat while keeping those bills paid, Layaway is a must. Not only will you avoid ‘wallet shock,’ you’ll keep your pre-holiday peace of mind.

Whether you need one or 100 items , you can Layaway almost everything on your list without paying a service fee through 11/23. Plus, you can pay in store, online or using a mobile phone. Eight or 12 weeks later (depending on your contract) pick up your items and you’re good to go! Bonus: After you figure out how easy it is, you can Layaway all year round at Kmart.

Kmart’s Big Layaway Giveaway!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you seen the Christmas trees on display already in the stores? I went shopping this weekend and saw them all over the place which is a little shocking since it isn’t even October yet, but on the other hand it’s also a good reminder that it’s a great time to get an early start on shopping for holiday gifts.

Kmart Big Layaway Giveaway

We have a large family and there is just no way that we could do all of our shopping in only the month or so before the holidays without killing our budget so we definitely have to spread our purchases out over time.

If you also need help making the most out of your budget then I highly recommend taking a look at the free layaway program at Kmart. You can put all of your favorite items on layaway and spread out your payments over time plus you won’t have to worry about the store running out of your favorite toys and gifts while you save up the funds for them. The best part is that you can manage your layaway online if you want and you can enter Kmart’s Big Layaway Giveaway where there is a winner in every store, every week!

Kmart Toys for Layaway

You’ll find layaway programs at a few other stores like Toys R Us, Best Buy and Walmart, but these other stores have minimums, they limit the merchandise that qualifies for the layaway program, and most of them charge transaction fees.

Kmart Televisions for Layaway

Head on over to your favorite local store or shop online where you can also put things on layaway. Some of my favorite things that I’d like to put on layaway include the fun toys shown above, or a new TV for the playroom. Don’t forget, simply by putting your purchases on layaway, you’ll have a chance each week to have your remaining balance paid off!
