Start Your Holiday Layaway Now


It's about seven weeks until Black Friday and 11 weeks before Christmas.  Yes, I know those dates are going to come up fast but it's not too late to do your shopping and make the proper payments to have your items credit card free by the holidays.

Not too long ago layaway programs were meant for people who didn't have credit cards. No credit cards, I know, sounds weird doesn't it?  I'm 25, if I can remember my mom using layaway then it wasn't too far back in time.  Once credit cards became the norm layaway programs weren't needed.

As the economy started to sink some retailers brought back their layaway programs as a way to boost profits. While you make your holiday lists check out some of these major stores that offer layaway!

  • Toys "R" Us - Toys "R" us lets you use layaway for the toys your kids will be asking Santa for this season.  Using layaway will also help you hide the gifts from your kids.
  • Kmart - Kmart has a 8-12 week program that allows you to purchase most items in store or online. There is a $5 service fee and a 10% down payment required.
  • Burlington Coat Factory - Burlington Coat Factory offers a 60 day program for clothing and home goods and a 90 day program for baby items. You must stick to a payment program and pay a $5 service fee. If you cancel your layaway you have to pay a $10 fee.
