The holidays are such a special time of the year and finding the right gift can make all the difference. One way that’s really helpful for shoppers is using Walmart Layaway! Unfortunately, we are hearing some disappointing news and it may not be an option this year! Here’s everything that we are hearing about Walmart layaway for 2021!
Will Walmart Offer Layaway in 2021?
The holidays are going to look different this year but I am still looking forward to gathering around the Christmas tree with family and friends! I know a lot of our readers look forward to using layaway to help with their gift purchases but it sounds like the traditional layaway will not be available this year. BUT you do have some options! Let me share with you all the details and what’s available for you!
Walmart Holiday Layaway 2021 for Christmas – Everything you need to know
There has not been an official statement from Walmart about layaway for 2021. So there’s a chance your local Walmart is going to offer it. One of the best ways to see if it’s available at your store is the Layaway store locator.
If your local store is offering layaway then keep in mind you will want to maximize the layaway program and use it early. The Walmart Layaway is only available for in-store purchases so keep that in mind.
We are bummed to hear layaway isn’t available at most stores. But you do have some options. Walmart has partnered with Affirm to bring you a buy now, pay later. You will need to see if you qualify for the amount you want to spend. Once you are approved, you will choose between 3-24 month payment plans. Keep in mind that you will pay between 10-30% APR.
What is Affirm?
As we mentioned above, Affirm is basically a financing option that you can use at Walmart. Once you have been approved, you can pick your items and then your payback options. You will need a mobile number from the U.S. to verify your eligibility. They want to make sure it’s really you creating the account. They may offer 0% APR financing at Walmart.com on select products. When you are shopping online, look for labels offering “0% APR with Affirm.”
Buy Now Pay Later With Klarna
There are companies like Klarna that offer the ability to buy now and pay later with no interest and no fees! Right now, Walmart doesn’t accept Klarna but there are a bunch of stores that do! It works like this. You can shop your favorite stores through the Klarna App or at the store and checkout with Klarna. They have different options for making payments. If you choose the Pay in 4 option then it’s interest-free payments, paid every 2 weeks. So that’s similar to layaway. You can use Klarna at Lululemon, Under Armour, Macy’s, and more!
