Kmart’s Big Lawaway Giveaway – You Could Win your Holiday Gifts!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kmart. All opinions are 100% mine.


Do you use layaway? I must admit that I'm still a bit new to the layaway system, but it sounds so convienent! If only I could plan that far in advance! For those of who you don't have issues with planning, though, Kmart is helping you with their "Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway"! 
Remember last year when kind people starting paying off other people's layaway purchases? Well, now K-Mart will be doing it for some of their customers! In EVERY STORE (yes, EVERY STORE!), EVERY WEEK (yes, EVERY WEEK!), through 9/9/12 to 11/17/12, Kmart will randomly select one of their guests and pay off their entire layaway bill!
This year, we really would like to get an awesome video game system or video game. In fact, if we had the money, we'd definitely be putting the new Wii U system on layaway! I've been eyeing some children's toys to put on Layaway for some of my cousins, and fall fashions are out right now, so I've been eyeing some of their clothing as well! For example, I really like the Juniors plus t-shirt pictured above! And it's layaway eligible!
The neat thing about Kmart free layaway is the fact that they are doing this promotion. No other stores are! You could possibly win your entire purchase (up to $500) at no cost to you! Kmart offers 8 week and 12 week layaway contracts (for whatever works best for you), and you can make your layaway payments at ANY register in the store (no waiting in line at customer service!) These are features that are hard to find anywhere else! That gives you a ton of ways to save! (Also, don't forget, you could use your Shop Your Way Rewards Card to earn back points on your purchases as well!) Kmart ALSO has a much wider availability of items that you can put on layaway, so if your gift for a cousin is some obscure item they've always wanted, you have a much higher chance of it qualifying for layaway at Kmart.

I'll definitely be placing some items on layaway – even if I can't win the giveaway. You guys should totally check it out – you could be getting all of your holiday gifts for free!
Other information: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.  Ends 11/17/12.  For Official Rules, visit a participating Kmart location or
Extra disclosure: I am a K-Mart employee, but this in no way affects my opinion. In fact, if I wasn't ineligible, I'd totally be putting something on layaway for this giveaway!

Affordable Hair-Cuts for the Family This Fall!

This post brought to you by Regis Family of Brands. All opinions are 100% mine.


Everyone knows that back-to-school time is a time that signals change. Children are going to be a "year older" in their schools, they require new supplies and clothes, and your entire schedule will change because the children are gone all day. With all that time for reinventing, why not also take the time to reinvent or straighten up your look?
I know back-to-school time is expensive though (for us college students too!), so Regis Salons are offering the Haircut Coupon-a-thon to give you $7.99 and $9.99 haircut coupons that are valid through 09/30/12. That's a REALLY good deal! Keep in mind that this coupon is valid for BOTH children and adults, so your entire family can get a new haircut for the Fall Season! That's definite savings!
15 salon brands and over 4,500 locations around the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico are participating! Some of the participating salons include SmartStyle (inside Wal-Marts), Best Cuts, MasterCuts, and others! I know we have a MasterCuts around, so I think I'm going to go to them because a new haircut sounds like just the pick-me-up that I need! 
Just use the coupon widget below and imput your preferred salon closest to you to get your coupon! I think I'm going to take advantage of this one as well! On a mobile device? To redeem your coupon: Touch and hold to save coupon image. Show coupon to your stylist. 
Trouble printing coupon? Email with the salon brand you’d like to visit and they’ll send you a coupon.
Enjoy your savings, and enjoy your new look! You could try something adventurous!

Savings on Shoes at Famous Footwear!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


If it's one thing that I love about back to school time, it's the amazing available deals on shoes! After all, this is when everyone needs and buys new shoes for school, and while I don't have to go to school, I still love the sales that come around.
One of my favorite stores, Famous Footwear, is having a back-to-school sale, and they're bringing some fantastic deals! 
To celebrate the victory of you being able to make it in and out of the store with NO hassle, Famous Footwear is offering a BOGO1/2 sale (Buy One, Get one Half Off). In ADDITION to that, they're also offering 15% off their items (20% off if you're a Rewards member!) That is a LOT of savings on shoes, and since shoes are one of the harder things to shop for, that's definitely something that I'll be taking advantage of.
If you want to take your savings further, there's also the Famous Footwear FREE Rewards Program. You earn a point for every $1 you spend in-store or online, and you can accumulate the points and get up to $100 in gift certificates a year! Signing up also earns you a special discount as well as future discounts and perks. If you're going to be taking advantage of this great sale anyway, why not get even more out of it by using your Rewards Card?
I'm planning on taking advantage of this sale this weekend. Shoes are very expensive, and I need a new pair of running shoes for use in the gym. Running shoes are usually very expensive, but this awesome sale is going to make it much more affordable.
So don't forget to print out your BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon !
Redeem in-store between NOW and August 18th!

Save Money on your San Antonio Vacation!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of SAVE for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


It's been forever since I've had a vacation, and to be honest, I'm pretty itching for one. However, when it comes down to it, vacations are really expensive ways to take some time off, so I've been putting it off. Recently, though, I found out about San Antonio which is one of the most affordable vacation destinations, and they're making it even more affordable to vacation by offering the SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience program. With over $600 in savings to various attractions in town, SAVE is making it even more affordable to travel to San Antonio.
The new SAVE program makes it really simple to find out different deals and attractions in San Antonio to save as much money as possible. In fact, the program offers exclusive discounts, deals, and Limited Time Offers that you really can't find anywhere else. You can save on Theme Park Thrills (including SeaWorld and Six Flags Fiesta Texas!), waterpark fun, outdoor advetures (like the San Antonio Zoo or San Antonio Botanical Garden), and more!
I always have a blast planning vacations that we (may or may not) be able to take, so if I was going to go to San Antonio, these are some of the deals that I'd take advantage of:
Four Points by Sheraton Hotel (SAVE rates from $99 to $149): I absolutely love a luxurious hotel, and there's nothing like a great hotel to really "drive in" that you're on a vacation time. However, rates are usually too high for me to affordable a great hotel for our family. With the reduced rates form SAVE, we'd be able to have a nicer hotel than we usually can!
Grand Trolley Tours (SAVE gives you $3 off per person): I love to explore a new city, and there's nothing like being able to explore in a trolley with someone who knows exactly all about the city. Saving money on a tour like that would be extremely helpful!
Laser Legend (SAVE gives you your 2nd Game free!): Even though I can play Laser Tag here, it's extremely enjoyable to try it out on a new course and with new equipment. However, Laser Tag can get pricy, so being able to have two games for the price of one makes it much, much more worth the trip to go.
Ripley's Haunted Adventure (SAVE gives you $1 off!): I absolutely love Ripley's Believe it Or Not!, so being able to go through a Haunted Adventure sounds fun. However, admission for these can get expensive, so reducing it by a dollar definitely helps in the long run!
San Antonio Botanical Garden (SAVE gives you $1 off admission): A beautiful botanical garden like this sounds like a really relaxing way to spend some of the off-time of my vacation. I bet I could get some fantastic photographs here too. Saving on admission makes me feel a lot less guilty about taking some relaxing time off on my vacation too!
Splashtown (SAVE gives you $7 off admission!): I love waterparks, so ending my trip with a trip to Splashtown sounds fantastic. With $7 off admission, I definitely know it's affordable, and I could definitely take the whole family!
That's only some of the fantastic coupons and savings that the SAVE program gives you! To keep up with the deals, limited time offers (that go fast!), and ideas to help plan your next trip to San Antonio, you can follow @SAVEinSA on Twitter!
