Community : Report Bugs & Troubleshooting

  • online layaways

  • I had an online layaway that 2 payments were made online for this layaway. I tried to make my 3rd payment on the due date and no link on the manage my layaway page would allow me to make the payment. I called 3 different times and was told that this would not affect my layaway because error reports were sent about the problem. I was given the run around even though I had reference numbers and one said he would even call me back. Never did! So then I went to a chat with someone who tells me she’s not showing those reports and that she will investigate it further that my layaway is considered inactive. I was furious little to say. I was doing all I could do to make this payment online as usual and this is what I get. I’m advised to wait another 24 hrs. or go to store (20 miles away) and make a payment. For the distance it is away, is why I did layaway online to start with. How rude this was. Everyone was apologetic but no one fixed the problem! I even offered to make the payment over the phone. And another thing, I put layaway on through k-mart, not Sears. But everyone kept saying Sears to me. ???

    I tried to pay a payment of $50 on my layaway online. It said there was a glitch and to try back. When I did I put in $50 again and it told me to confirm put the amount was blank so I backed out of it and when I did it said a transaction was processing. I then checked my bank account and instead of taking $50 they took the balance of $178. I called customer service & they said someone will get back to me in 48 hours. I called the store to tell them the situation so they won’t put my items away and the woman commented “it could take a lot longer to get your money back though”. I nees to know how long this will take. I have other bills I need to pay and can’t wait for them to decide to refund me when it was a glitch in their system.

    How do I get the online layaway started??? I have the item selected in my cart, but it wants to charge the entire amount onto my CC

    Hi there, kmhhelseltc! Welcome to MyKmart tonight! If the layaway option does not appear at checkout, that particular item is not available for layaway. What are you looking to buy?
