Walmart Layaway

Walmart has announced that they will have a Christmas layaway!

NOW there are a couple rules to their layaway, which I think people will not like..

1.  Layaway only for toys and electronics.
2.  Total purchase over $50, and EACH item has to be $15.00 or more. ( what?)

What do you think?



  1. I get it though...how many people go and put in a layway and never get it. I know the walmart near out home would have trailer after trailer of Christmas layways and people wouldn't pick them up. A lot of labor cost plus the burdens they pay out...rental of trailers, workers comp, overtime, taxes. I understand where they are coming from. I hate layways personally. I would go put one in for my daughter then she would change her mind what she wanted from Santa and I would return it all anyway.

  2. I don't think it should be limited to toys and electronics. Many children need clothing or necessities and Walmart is kind of saying, too bad, we're only doing Layaway for big ticket items. I personally don't use layaway but know many who do.

  3. Just as easy to go to a S&L or a bank and open a Christmas account, add a few bucks up until you are ready to make the purchase. secure and works to the same end.
