Kmart Layaway...Update!

Early last month I told you about my putting a layaway down at Kmart with some Christmas gifts for our family. Well, we finally paid it off!
Our total was $114.00. I had been monitoring the prices of the items we purchased to see if the prices may have dropped. After we received our box, we stopped by the customer service desk and inquired if anything had been price reduced.

Boy did we get a big surprise! Everything was reduced and we received $69.16 back. We earned $11.00 in Shop your way rewards and 625 Plink points ($5 gift card). We used the $11.00 plus an additional $5.00 in free Shop your way rewards money they sent via email towards (2) 24 pack of Angel soft bathroom tissue and (1) pack of 8 pack Sparkle paper towels which we got for free with our points.

At Kmart, you have the option of an electronic receipt or a paper receipt. We always opt for the paper receipts because they provide coupons each time. We received two coupons for $5.00 off shoes and immediately used them for two pairs of slippers and only paid $1.02 for tax. Since August, we have saved over $300 at Kmart by receiving the free Kmart bucks and coupons and with our accrued points for our purchases. It’s one of the best programs that we have used in our efforts to save money.
