PRIZE DRAWING: Because It’s About Time You Stepped Into a Kmart Again

Updated Kmart logo

Last month, I was a little mean to Kmart, suggesting Kmart stores dream about being Target stores. To be honest, I haven’t stepped into a Kmart in at least two years, so maybe they’ve improved and stores aren’t depressing anymore.

So to make it up to Kmart, The Impulsive Buy will be giving away a $25 Kmart gift card to one lucky reader, forcing him or her to go to Kmart. Although, I guess the winner could also sell the gift card on eBay or give it to a relative for Christmas.

To enter The Impulsive Buy’s Kmart gift card drawing, leave a comment with THIS post. I don’t care what you say in your comment, but it would be nice if you take a few moments to come up with something nice to say about Kmart, even if you don’t mean it. For example, shopping at Kmart brings a joy to my soul that I thought could only be achieved by riding a unicorn up a rainbow.

Please don’t forget to fill out the email field because I’ll be emailing the winner for his or her mailing address. The Impulsive Buy will stop accepting entries on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time. Only one comment allowed per person, and it’s only open to U.S. residents who are at least 18 years old.

For those of you who have a Twitter account, you can get an additional entry by tweeting the following by Wednesday, November 30, 2011 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time:

@theimpulsivebuy Kmart is the greatest store ever and I’ll punch you in the face if you say otherwise. #kmartrules

So just copy, paste, and tweet. Only one tweet per Twitter account.

Good luck!

  1. I still go to Kmart periodically to buy shoes. They have shoe deals unmatched by other stores, I tell you

  2. I was actually in Kmart today. Their sales are pretty good, and I can distract my toddler with the toy aisle before grocery shopping.

  3. My friend swears he was busted for shoplifting there back in the 80’s, and the security guard flashed a badge ans said “Come with me- Kay em aye are tee pee dee”. Sounds like bullshit to me.

  4. I miss the old Kmart next to me. It had a little Cesars that had AMAZING crazy bread.. The standalone Little Cesar’s we have now sucks..

  5. I worked there for 2 years. Awful place, aside from the in-house brands. Less trustworthy workers would often “accidentally” slash a product so we could eat it. Herrs’ were tops.

  6. Well KMart…you got me hooked on Little Caesar’s back in the day, and you you still have Lay-away. So you have that going for you. That was also unintentionally rhymy…

  7. kmart always made “back to school” time slightly more tolerable by providing some awess school supplies, like markers and cool colored pencils that I’d barely use in school.

  8. My mom used to work for American Greetings and had to keep the cards at the locale K-Mart stocked and in order. She took me and my brother to work with her instead of paying for a babysitter. Instead of being boring this actually led to the tow of us pretty much having the run of the store! I have many fond memories of the two of us cutting up in the clothes department, playing hide and seek, spying on customers in the camera room and taking the stone garden animals from the outdoor sections and putting them in sexual positions in through out the store. It’s a wonder mom didn’t get fired!

    Anyway, basically I am grateful to K-Mart for putting up with us hellions and keeping mom employed. We had a good time and they must have thought we were cute or something to let us get away our behavior.

  9. I love kmart..I bought the best pack of snaps there! They were so fresh and so clean clean!

  10. I remember when Kmart wasn’t so bad…but that was way before Walmart came to town (we didn’t get a Target around these parts until the late 90’s and Walmart opened in the early 90’s), so e had to get our crap somewhere. I still go from time to time just to check it out.

  11. Ya know that site People Of Walmart? They should really make a People Of Kmart. I was in there the other day and it was like I was in a whole new world. But not the one from Aladdin.

  12. I would totally go to K-Mart with a gift card. I’d only buy things that begin with the letter “K”, just to make it especially interesting. . .

  13. I live in a small, defunct coal-mining town of about 8,000 and the only non-grocery store we have is the ol Big K. Depressed enough to let me win yet?

  14. I love wandering around the Kmart where the train ends and I have 45 minutes to wait for the next bus.

  15. I’ve personally never been to kmart since forever either! Maybe it’s about time I do so 🙂

  16. Kmart was my first and probably favorite job. I havent been to one in forever bc they’re on the wrong side of town..

  17. I actually pass a K-Mart daily (not a fancy Super K-Mart, mind you, just the old-school “Big K”) and it’s definitely no Target, but less scummy than what I remember from my youth. Great deals on some hardware/household type stuff. My sister’s first job was at K-Mart and she loved it!

  18. There isn’t a K-Mart within 50 miles of where I live in Texas. Most of them closed down and left the Texas Market. But I would be happy to peruse their website for giftcard purchasing.

  19. We have a KMart not too far from our house, and the people who work there are actually pretty friendly. The store has worked with our community association for a few events as well.

  20. I haven’t been in a Kmart in EONS and would be glad to have an excuse to rediscover the magic of the blue light special!
