GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
The post FRUGALISTA GIFT IDEAS: 9 WAYS TO CHOOSE NOW, PAY LATER gave you the low down on the layaway retailers. It’s also good to note that Kmart offers layaway customers the chance to have their layaway balance paid off or to simply win a gift card by entering without having to layaway at all. The contest chooses one winner at every store, every week. That certainly could be an enticement to layaway at Kmart if they have some of the gifts you’re looking for.
Jewelry gifts, like the Sofia Vergara rose gold heart necklace, regularly $200 for $80.
Or, the Elgin Men’s Gold-tone Watchfor $68, regularly $90.
If you layaway the Disney Cars folding trikefor $60, the parents would probably love it. Teaching the kid early the art of putting things away!
For the big biker or eco-minded on your list, you might add the M-Wave Double “Day Tripper” pannier to the layaway list. It’s on sale for $39.
Like all of the retailers who offer layaway, there are lots of choices for gift ideas in most departments. Need some ideas before you go? Check out post like Frugalista Gift Ideas: Who Do You Think They Are?, any of the posts for the Eco-Minded, Gifts for the Host or Hostess, Gift Ideas for the Beauty Buff, etc.
Entering the Big Layaway Giveaway is easy. You enter by putting items into layaway in the store, layaway online or mailing in an entry without purchasing anything. Winners get their layaway balanced paid, up to $500. If you win and happen to have paid off your layaway, you’ll get a gift card instead.
The next entry period begins October 7, 2012 and ends October 13, 2012. Your receipt must be postmarked by October 15, 2012 and received by October 22, 2012. The drawing date happens on approximately October 25, 2012.
There are 6 entry periods remaining. All follow the date pattern above. The sweepstakes ends November 17, 2012, so hurry if you’re so inclined.
