Believe it or not the holiday season is quickly approaching! I don't know about you but it seems like this year is flying by, school has started and Fall and the holidays are on the horizon. Since I'm just back from a sunny trip to the beach it is difficult to wrap my mind around the concept of holidays but they are a reality that will will be here before we know it. At Walmart, they are helping consumers get a jumpstart on holiday shopping with Layaway starting September 13! This year there are some new additions. The number of products available to be placed on layaway have increased from 34,000 to 35,500. And for the first time there is no fee to open a layaway account. Opening an account is simple, just pay $10 or 10% of the cost of the product (whichever is greater).
And if you are really excited about layaway your can get early access by visiting the Walmart facebook page! You can shop two days early for layaway on September 11 by clicking the offer on the facebook page. You can place a number of electronics on layaway including tablets like the iPad, iPad mini, Playstation, Xbox, big screen televisions and smartphones like the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy 3.
I know that we are living in some trying economic times and having access to layaway can help you purchase big ticket items over a 90 day period which is a big help!
