5 Reasons to Start Your Holiday Shopping Early / Giveaway (Closed)

This post is sponsored by Kmart.
I know you’re screaming…”But it’s not even Halloween yet!” and “Why? Why did you have to bring it up?” Believe me, I totally get it. It’s early for a lot of you. You don’t even want to start thinking about the holidays. But, bear with me. I’ve teamed up with Kmart again to bring you 5 reasons why you should start your holiday shopping early—like right now. Here’s a spoiler. One of those reasons includes their No Money Down Layaway (yes, layaway is available online too). I even have a sweet little giveaway at the end of this post to get you in the holiday mood.

1. You don’t want to miss out on the good stuff and we all know that having options is awesome.

2. You will save money, because last-minute holiday shopping is often overrated and costly.

3. You won’t be stressing out at the last minute like everyone else, because your shopping will be all done.

4. You’ll have plenty of time to be more creative in the gift-giving department. And even have the option of changing your mind if you want.

5. Because Kmart’s Layaway is super convenient and you can enter to win a $50 Kmart gift card.

Here’s how Kmart’s Layaway works ONLINE:

Go to Kmart.com and select the items you wish to buy. Please note that you will see a “layaway available” statement on every product online. When you’re finished shopping, go to your Cart. There you will see the “Pay with Layaway” option as a payment choice. Select that option. Once you select “Pay with Layaway”, you can see additional details such as the payment schedule and full Terms & Conditions. And that’s it!

Kmart’s No Money Down Layaway is available NOW (online and in-store) until November 29, 2015. This makes it so much easier for shoppers like you to get everything on their gift list by planning and budgeting early. Visit Kmart.com/Layaway for more info!
