Have You Ever Bought Something on Layaway?

Walmart is among the retailers that have started showing their holiday spirit and, surprisingly, the chain's recent commercials advertise the option to buy gifts on layaway. The retailer retired layaway in 2006 and has brought it back this holiday season to entice consumers that are more likely to spend if they have this option.

Layaway became less popular when people began relying on credit cards, but now that so many Americans are in credit trouble Walmart has reverted to its old policies to keep consumers spending in its stores. Have you ever used layaway?
