I remember when I was a kid – my Mom would take my sister and I to Kmart to put in a layaway for school clothes and book bags and such. We would go in each week to pay on it, and I couldn’t wait until it was paid off so we could go pick it up and enjoy all our new stuff! She did it at Christmas too, and I remember picking out a Nintendo and other more expensive things we’d never be able to afford without the layaway program.
When I got my first job I decided to make a few purchases for my room including a new T.V., so of course I visited Kmart to start my very own layaway. Let me tell you – those 6 weeks waiting was pure torture! I only wish they would of had the Kmart Leasing Program back then!
The Kmart Leasing Program gives you the chance to ‘rent to own’ those big price items, or any purchase over $150. We all know that emergencies happen – refrigerators go out, washers or dryers stop working, things happen. Maybe you’re waiting for that big commission check and you wanted a new T.V. before the big party you were hosting for the Super Bowl. Whatever your need – Kmart has a leasing option for you.
I decided to apply to see what my payments might be for a new washer and dryer. Mine is getting a bit old, and with as much laundry as I do I know that I couldn’t go very long without them.
For $125 bi-weekly (which is how I get paid) I could get this lovely washer/dryer set. No need to come up with the $1,500 upfront, which lets admit, can be difficult sometimes especially in this day and age. but $125? I can do.
It’s pretty simple to apply for their leasing program – you fill out less information than you even would for a credit card and viola, instant approval. They gave me my approval code immediately and told me to take it to my local Kmart to set my lease up in person.
If you are looking for some last minute gift ideas for Christmas, the Kmart leasing program can work for you too! I looked at getting my son the Xbox ONE he’s been lusting over for the past few months, and my daughter wanted a new tablet to use for school. Since the budget is tight this time of year, the leasing program makes perfect sense. I can get it now, and pay it off after the hustle and bustle of the holidays.
What would you buy with the Kmart Leasing Program?
