Sears & Kmart Christmas Club Card Giveaway (CLOSED)

I know it's only September but in my opinion it's never too early to start saving for Christmas. You may not be aware but Christmas Day is only 106 days away. Not that long when you break it down in weeks & then days...

I wish I could say I have a secret way of saving money to buy gifts for everyone in my enormous family but unfortunately I don't. I'm actually that one crazy woman you see running around the store in her pajamas 2 days before Christmas Eve trying to find gifts for everyone because she procrastinated & in the end everyone ends up getting a pack of Hanes underwear & a new toothbrush lol. I'm horrible at saving & I'm not ashamed to admit it. Ok...I'm a little ashamed, just a little.


In order to help people like myself get ready for the holidays, Sears & Kmart are bringing back an old favorite: The Christmas Club.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the The Christmas Club Card, here's how it works:
  • Purchase a Christmas Club gift card (either online or at any Sears/Kmart locations).
  • Activate your card with as little as $5 by October 31st.
  • Add value (either online or in-store) through November 15th & get a bonus of 3% (up to $100) by November 24th.
  • You can continue adding as much money as you like & it never expires.

If you think about it it's sort of like layaway but modernized. It’s a great way to make the most of your holiday budget. For more details on the Christmas Club, visit the following site:

And check out this video where financial advisor Louis Barajas answers a few of my questions & give us advice as to how to save for Christmas.
