I told you guys a few months ago that Walmart was bringing back Layaway. Thy just announced Layaway is available starting Oct 17 with final payment and pickup by Dec. 16th! I know this is a tough economy and this will really help to avoid the last minute shopping after saving your money for months. There is nothing worse than saving up for months for the kiddos and then not being able to find what they really really want. This is also a great alternative to using credit cards to pay for Christmas this year and avoid piling up the debt!
It does stink that you can’t use it for Black Friday items, but that is already total chaos so I understand that.
Here are the details:
