WALMART: CHRISTMAS LAYAWAYS BEING OFFERED THIS YEAR!
I was one of the MAIN people very upset a few years ago when Wal-Mart announced that they would no longer be doing layaways. As a mom who has always survived off of a limited budget, I really depended on Wal-Mart’s layaways around Christmas time. This was the only way that I could gurantee that my children would receive a nice Christmas. To say that I was literally heart broken was an understatement.
Well, I received an email from Wal-Mart yesterday informing me that Christmas layaways were back.
Of course there are some stipulations, and a lot of the old features aren’t back, but I’m willing to work with what they give me. Some of the guidelines for their Christmas layaways are:
- You can only put toys and electronics on layaway this year.
- Each item that you put on layaway must have a value of at least $15.
- You have to pay a down payment of 10% along with a $5 processing fee.
- If you should decide to cancel your layaway you will loose $10 (my guess is for a restocking fee).
Walmart will start taking layaways on October 17th and you have until December 16th to get them out. You can always check out Walmart’s website for additional information on their new layaway policy.
Will you be using Walmart’s returning layaway this year for your Christmas shopping?
