Disclosure: I received compensation for writing this post.

Kmart and Izea are having some fun this holiday season. They choose a few high profile bloggers to write about their experiences shopping at Kmart. I happened to be one of the chosen few!. They sent me a $500 Kmart gift card and asked me to share on my blog what I purchased. They also said I could give away a $500 gift card to a ShoeMoney.com reader!

First we started in the bed and bath dept. Found a nice comforter for my daughter:

Little Mermaid bath set:

Fishing Pole and Net for my dad 🙂

Hmm we need a dart board:

In the sporting goods section they had these pink tennis balls in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (last month):

Spiderman Scuba set for only $3 WOW!

Scouting for more deals:

Oooo workout rings:

Awe ya now we are talking! Amazing prices on media.

They still sell VHS tapes? Guess so!

Man no computers section? Kind of weird. Just a bunch of small electronic stuff:

Lots of Flip Video accessories. Wonder why I need a bunch of these =P

HAHAH ELF I love that movie. “SANTA I KNOW HIM”

Movies! I love movies!

Always good to have a plunger around:

Awe ya its jam time. Juliet is going to love this:

What is it with elmo?

I love UNO!

Candy… my nemisis:

Pickup this driver for my father in law.

My wife and I sponsor a soldier who is in Afghanistan. He told us they desperately need long underwear.

I picked up as many as would fit in the cart. Good thing they are 50% off!

So now what you have been waiting for. How can you win a $500 gift card to Kmart? Simple!

In the comments below leave what you would purchase with sku numbers that would add up to without going over $500.

You can also enter via twitter:

  1. Man I need one of these so badly:
    Kmart item# 012W804958950001
    Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p)

    Hope I win!

      1. You do have a point there, as responsible shopping entails knowing where and how your purchased goods have been manufactured. In todays tough climes it is difficult not to go for the bargains though, quite a vicious circle all in all!

        1. I can’t believe Kmart is still around. I think there is one still where I live.
          Walmart has completely killed them. Plus I have always found them to be a dirty store too.

  2. Kmart item# 020W3312691
    Kmart item# 018W677925110001

    Does the email address need to be sent to you privately as well?

  3. Wouldn’t mind one either.

    Kmart item# 012W804958950001
    Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p)

    1. I also want one of those! Spoilt Jeremy got to shop for $500 and share the experience. There’s merit in being a blogging rockstar!

  4. This is an easy one for me. My grill is on it’s last leg and I was looking at picking up a new one before the spring time, so I would get

    Kmart item #028W787678110001
    Kenmore Gas Grill – $469.99

    along with

    Kmart item #028W891588110001
    Kenmore 3 pc. Barbecue Tool Set – $24,99

  5. Need a TV for my “man cave”.
    Olevia 26″ LCD #018W794829110001
    Monster Cables #250THXV100-CV16N


  6. Well I want a rubber duck, a collection of flowers and a nice little Garmin StreetPilot, weee! The rest after my purchases would go on buying items children this christmas who are homeless, they need it more than we do!

    Shopping for the win.

    – Carl

    1. Oh the sku numbers, well I could do it two ways.

      Use it in one go: #012W804958950001 all but a cent!

      Or 5 x #1030000000781860 Great fun 🙂

      Good luck!

      – Carl

  7. I’d buy two of the Logitech Labtec WebCam Pros ($30 x 2) for my sister and brother, who both live a few hours away so we could do some video chatting rather than just over the phone

    I’d buy the Weslo Cadence Ct 5.8 Treadmill ($300) because I’d love to set up a treadmill workstation.

    And I just moved into my first house (alone) so I still need a bunch of random household stuff (I don’t even have any pots and pans yet!), and I’d pick all of the up with the remaining $140.

  8. Clearly I would start with a PS3 (018W963975110001), then pick up LEGO Batman for PS3 (05896365000) and Wall-E on BluRay (UPC 78693677543). Then I would need a 2 GB PNY memory card (00337441000) leaving 3.04 left. I would probably just use the next $3 to buy a Coke and a candy bar!

  9. Let us know more on how we can “adopt” or help a soldier. Did you go through a not-for profit to get matched up?

    Here is my Dear Santa Izea:

    Sylvania 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV
    Kmart item# 018W67792511000
    As of today the price was $429.99

  10. Well….I could use a new tv for our basement rec room.

    Man! You’ve bought a lot of stuff at Kmart. Wondering what is the bill..

  13. I would need a new TV, mine is giving up…colors are all messed up no fun watching TV anymore…well I watch to much anyway 🙂

    SKU# 018W67792511000

  16. I would get two Memorex 19 in. Class LCD HDTV with HDMI Input
    Kmart item# 018W805721110001 Mfr. model# MLT1921

  17. I’d actually use it at their pharmacy to give my mom a break with those expensive ass meds she has to take and let her give her grand children a decent x-mas. 🙂

  18. I really like the donation idea. I’d buy bicycles and send them to Africa. $500 would buy 3 Mongoose Men’s Spire bikes at $150 each – Kmart item# 080W981238110001.

  19. I’d go for the HIgh Def TV. Under $500!! Just!

    Kmart item number 012W804958950001

    Normally i’d like to shop around but seen as this is time sensitive, i’d happily take the telly 🙂

  20. Hi ! I’m doing the coat-hanger-instead-of-rabbit-ears with a tv from the 90’s – so I’d want to get this so my bf could actually SEE the football when the game’s on!
    Sylvania 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV
    Kmart item# 018W677925110001 Mfr. model# LC320SS9 (on sale for $429.99)

    and then this for my nephew:

    Disney Toddler Boy’s Cars Rally Hangdown Tee
    Kmart item # 024W01003812000 ($6.99)

    If I had to hit $500 exactly, the balance would go to a chocolate bar or two for me!

  21. First of all this is my first time i am commenting on this blog. I was like what an offer to start with.

    If i won then i would buy

    Viewsonic 22″ Wide 1680×1050 Black LCD

  22. Thanks for this shoe! I’m trying to jump start my media company so most of the things below would go towards that.

    1. Flip Video Ultra Series 60 minutes

    2. Sylvania 20 in. Diagonal LCD DTV

    3. iLounger Chair – Blue
    Kmart item# 1030000000742752

  23. It may be cheating a little, but I’m VERY MUCH in need of a flat screen t.v. (my CRT is on its last legs) so I would put the $500 towards a Samsung 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p) – KMart item #012W652770480001 and just shell out the remaining $150 myself.

    If that’s not allowed, I would settle for the Sylvania 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV, which is currently on sale for $429.99 (KMart item #018W677925110001) and use the extra $70 to buy the necessary HD cables.

    Good luck to meee

  24. Disney Wheel of Fortune – $19.99 – 1030000000715831 – For a cousin.
    Flip Video Ultra Series – $149.99 – 05FVULTRA60MINN – For my little sister, who is hopelessly jealous of my Flip.
    Sportcraft The Quasar Multi-Game Table – $129.99 – 080W7576521 – For my mom and dad’s house, because we could use some entertainment when we all go home.
    Sony 7.2 MP Digital Camera – 020W684513110001 – $179.99 – For my other sister, because she’s still using a 2 Megapixel camera from 2001.
    Air Supply, The Ultimate Performance – 1260000010853436 – $9.99 – For myself, because I’ve been cursed with awful taste and I just can’t help myself.
    Raging Rapids Game – 1030000000457013 – $9.99 – For a younger cousin, because it looks like something I would have liked at that age.

    (my five year old loves the apps on my iPhone, so I’d love to get her one for herself)

    Total — $499.98

  38. I’d probably get this: Sony 19 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p), BRAVIA® (018W809619110001)

  39. Good shopping Spree Jeremy!

    Since our Christmas Shopping is already done, I would be greedy and spend it on myself! I have a goal of getting back into shape, so I would head to a few specific areas of the store…

    Weslo Pro Elliptical – Get in Shape!
    SKU: Kmart item #080W106406110001

    Sportline Solo 900 Unisex Heart Rate Watch – Make sure I dont die while doing so!

    My Stop Smoking Coach With Allen Carr – Gotta put those down too!
    SKU: Kmart item #255NDSUBI1648701

    Since I would LOVE to record my progress and publish via a blog, I would also get the:

    Flip Video Ultra Series 60 minutes
    SKU: Kmart item# 105FVULTRA60MINP

    I know, I went a bit over… buy hey, its all for a great cause, and the prices were pretty good too!


  40. Kmart item# 10800000HPW2408H Mfr. model# HP W2408H

    I really need a monitor to dock my laptop.

  41. First Thing I would buy is the
    Sylvania 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV
    Kmart item# 018W677925110001

    Next would be:
    Quik Shade 10 ft. x 10 ft. Shade Tech 64 Canopy
    Kmart item# 9990000022407811

    Great stuff for home, and for camping!

  42. I would purchase:

    Sylvania 20 in. Diagonal LCD DTV
    Kmart item# 012W80468185000 $299 – TV screen went black after 5 years and I haven’t budgeted enough to buy a new one

    #020W678422110001 $139.99
    #105000MX300PIXMA $99.99

  44. $500 anywhere is a great Christmas gift, but I would hesitate to spend it all on myself or my ‘in decent shape’ family in this type of economic climate.

    3 to 2 seems like a good balance, without being self-righteous.

    On that note:

    Apple iPod Nano 16GB Orange – 018W929088490001 – $199.99 (For Fun)

    Qty 3 – Holmes Convertible Tower Portable Heaters – 9990000013916511 – Total $239.97 (Donated to Local Families via Reputable Charity)

    Qty 1 – Holmes Quartz Tower Heater – 9990000060046311 – $59.99 (Same as Above)

    Plus tax…

    It’s really damn cold here in Indianapolis right now, and it’s easy to take simple warmth for granted.

  48. I would probably buy Christmas gifts for family. So that includes from bunch of dolls for my sister, to soccer ball and other sporting goods for my little brother. Maybe a Basketball for me. I am pretty sure that will hit the $500 pretty well. If not then candies are always a plus 😛

    1. I wonder, did you have to ask permission from the store to take the pictures? I know first hand that Walmart has an issue with it.

  49. Luckily, my Christmas shopping is done. We went light on the gifts this year. 🙂

    But I did get an email last week stating the local food banks are all empty. EMPTY!

    So I would buy lots of canned goods and such for the food drive. (Our K Mart has groceries, too)

    Oh! And I would get one of these:
    Sesame Street Elmo Live!
    Kmart item# 004W957431110001 Mfr. model# L9049

    for my cousin’s baby. Just because it’s so darn cute!

  50. Great post, you seem hilarious and to be walking around with a cart full of stuff snapping pictures in the middle of k-mart is funny as hell. It seems like you went there at night, I don’t see many people except for that dude wearing the AMP jacket.

    What I would get would be a laptop cause I’ve always wanted one (maybe I’d get more shit done while not on this hoopty) or a 32″ lcd tv because this DTV transition is killing me.

    Good job with the long johns though – That has to be way more then $500 in that cart especially after the hoop.

    1. After doing some reconsideration, I don’t think I would go with those lavish goods. I got a pc, so why would I want a lap top. The TV, sheeshh who am I kidding, I’m not Tony Montana.

      I would try to find a copy of Adobe Photoshop and then with the leftovers…Well I don’t know about you but I got a grocery section and a food court in my k-mart. With the little food I have, I’d be munching good for a couple weeks.

  51. I’d like to have these items for my planned website’s contest:

    one $399.99 Apple 32GB iPod® Touch Digital Media Player – Black
    Kmart item# 018W929092640001 Mfr. model# MB533LL/A

    four $15.99 PNY 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Memory Drive
    Kmart item# 018W822441110002 Mfr. model# P-FD4GBATT2-FS


  52. might sound cheesy, but the best way to spend your 500$ gift card would have been to invite someone who really got nothing and let them buy all their christmas presents. would be cool to see their eyes light up like candles. You look a bit bored while spending it in contrast. i would guess none of us really needs to blow 500 Bucks for stuff that is not really important. for sure i would like a 500 dollar plasma screen, but i don’t really need it to be honest. as i said cheesy, but that would have been pretty bold.

  53. I guess I don’t have anything in particular that I would buy, but I would basically spend 250 on my kids for christmas and spend 250 for the christmas drive.

    That would probably be the most fun.


  54. I need to get rid of my old school 32 inch giant tv! I live a small one bed room apartment and this would rock!

    Kmart item# 012W804958950001 Mfr. model# ELCHS321

  55. Jeremy used to be a FAT MAN – look at the picture no. 12 from above – He is getting all his old skin back.

    Hey Jeremy -Start spending some time at Gym.

    1. I’m reminded of something my old ma used to say to me, it started with something like “if you’ve got nothing nice to say…..”

  56. This is easy.
    Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p)
    012W804958950001 – at $499.
    I’d buy a snickers with the last dollar.
    Of course I could also a new phone for my house since my baby boy tossed the last one in a tub of water.

  57. Our TV recently died so I would get this: Kmart item# 018W677925110001

    Our baby moniter didn’t survive the first child so I would get this too:
    Kmart item# 024W949562110001

    I would then round it out with this ear thermometer: Kmart item# 9990000014521612

  58. I would trade my Kmart gift card and swap it in for a cooler gift card, like Best Buy maybe. swapagift.com

  59. ok, i’m going to have to go with the simple on this one:

    Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p)
    Kmart item# 012W804958950001

    been trying to convince the mrs. to pick one of these up for a long time. =]

    Kmart item# 012W804958950001 $499.99

  64. I retweeted as well (from @Aliwicious)

    I have a baby on the way, as well as a 1 yr old, so I am broke and desperate for essentials.

    So we can ditched our used mattress:

    To keep the new mattress nice and clean:
    Sealy Stain Protection Crib Mattress Pad Kmart item #024W826742110001 $19.99

    Cause otherwise baby #1 has no bed once she is kicked out of her crib for the baby#2 due in june:
    Heritage Collection Wooden Toddler Bed-Natural item# 9990000006826512 $42.00

    To keep the stink out:
    Diaper Genie (II) Refill item# 024W923738110001 Qty: 10 = $59.90

    To keep the hooligans contained:

    For a grand total of $495.

    Seriously though, please, gimme.

  65. I would give it to our Humane Society! That would keep them in critter food for ages. Do they still have the Martha Stewart stuff? We don’t have a Kmart near us anymore (which is why they make kmart.com I imagine), so I am really commenting to see where you got your soldier? My old one got married and is back in the US.

  66. I am not entering the contest, I think it said first 25 comments? In any case, kudos for sponsoring a soldier. That is just one way that us stateside citizens can do our part, regardless of our views on the war.

    Seems to me that sacrifice is never asked of us nowadays. Remember back in the 70’s when we could only fill our tanks on odd/even days? Anyways, thats a nice thing you are doing.

  67. Kmart item #018W929085370001- A green Ipod for my 13 yr old son who is doing so good in school and being a great big brother $149

    Kmart item #018W929086350001- A Black Ipod for my husband because he commutes an hour both ways to work every day and needs something on the bus. $199

    Kmart item #1030000000353604- A horse stable for my 3 yr old because I have horses coming out of my ears and she needs a place for them $99

    Kmart item #004W805994110001- My little Pony Scootaloo pony

    Thanks! This would make my year!


  68. What would I spend $500 on? I would purchase the full value of $ in dog/cat food and donate to a local animal shelter

  69. Their website says that you can now buy major appliances at Kmart, so I would definitely buy a new washer (no products or SKUs listed on the Kmart site). Ours bounces around like it’s trying to break free of the laundry room!

  70. You managed to get a lot of things with $500.

    I think I’d have to spend it all on my daughter. Great boost for Christmas.

    I’d just let her wonder through the store picking things out, then wrap them up for her. She’s to little to know any different this year. 🙂

    1. Now that I think about it, I think I’d only use half of it for my daughter, then use the other half to donate to the toys for tots drive that’s going on right now.

      A great way to give to those who need it.

  71. Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite System

  72. I would buy CLOTHES & Shoes for my kids!!

    And I’d love to have this too!

    Kmart item# 012W804958950001
    Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p)

  73. I’d buy this for my husband:

    Craftsman 5 Drawer Homeowner Tool Center

    And this because my kids are little and my current camera takes too long to recycle so I always miss the moment:

    Nikon 10.0MP Digital Camera

    And then I’d buy a Coffee Table because we don’t currently have one:

    Martha Stewart Everyday Mission Bungalow Coffee Table

  74. Fantastic Idea! If I had a $500 gift card from Kmart… these would be on my list:

    Kmart item# 018W220084110001

    It isn’t a total of $500, but close, I would probably buy some gum, maybe a movie, but I dont want to commit to too much.

  77. I think too much about myself. Time to give more this season. Times are tough but I can do it!

    For my best friend: Apple iPod Nano for $149.99 #018W929084370001

    And leave the remaining money on the card for myself

  81. As greedy as I have been my whole life, I have changed. I just moved out to an apartment for the first time, and my life is changing. I am becoming a responsible adult. As much as I’d love a nice HDTV, I feel that giving the $500 to a Christmas charity would feel better then me enjoying a TV.

    Christmas is about family and love. With the Kmart gift card, I’d buy up the toy section for the children who are less fortunate.

    Shoe, if I win the gift card will you match the $500 and buy toys for the kids this season? We will both tape the experience, from buying to giving to the charity.

    Some toys I’d buy are:

    Cutie Cathy
    Kmart item# 1030000000747960

    Two-Sided Bean Bag Set
    Kmart item# 1030000000493930

    5-Piece 16″ Doll Clothing Set
    Kmart item# 1030000000747278

    K’Nex: Sesame Street – Elmo & His Piano Building Set
    Kmart item# 103000000713328C

    K’Nex: Sesame Street – Bert & Ernie Building Set
    Kmart item# 103000000713328B

    Kmart item# 1030000000749384

    Learning Resources Animals on the Farm Classifying Cards
    Kmart item# 1030000000681862

    One thing I like about Kmart is they usually have 1-2 aisles of clearance toys. Most of my shopping will be done in them aisles.

    I hope everyone gets to spend time with their family this season!


  82. I would give the gift card to my cousin Hannah’s family. Hannah is 4 and was diagnosed with an untreatable brain tumor last month. She has already had 3 surgeries and is expected to be in the hospital for at least one more month. They gave her 3-11 months to live depending on treatment. Just 2 years ago we lost Hannah’s mom to cancer as well. The family is already financially strained, so I would give them the gift card to purchase things they need to help with the commute between Lititz and Hershey (where Hannah is being treated).

  83. So that plunger picture, “Always good to have a plunger around” …You aren’t planning on starting ShoeMoney Plumbing right ? lol

  84. I’d give it to the office adoptive family. I don’t even know where a Kmart is located around here!


  85. Memorex 19 in. Class LCD HDTV with HDMI Input : $249.99

    Pioneer CD Receiver with 2-Line OEL Display, USB Direct Control of iPod, and 7-Way Rot : $189.99

    PNY 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Memory Drive : $15.99

    Case Logic CD Wallet, 128 Disc Capacity – Black : $24.99

    Case Logic 6-Capacity USB Drive Shuttle : $6.99

    Total : $499.95

  86. At first I would have said the two chairs I have been coveting, but then I thought I should have more Xmas spirit and ask for something that also gives to others as well.

    To begin with, #1070000AZDECZ990 (a camcorder mic) would be perfect so I could do some video podcasting (my camcorder has terrible sound without one).

    Then I would by six #25000000MP735-1G (video mp3 players) and load them with my podcast and self-hypnosis audios. These I would give to those who participate in my-for-profit venture I hope to establish involving people who suffer from abusive relationships.

  87. Evenflo Big Kid Matrix Booster Seat item# 024W696745110001
    To replace the one that broke.

    Holmes Ultra Quiet Ceramic Heater item# 9990000084127411
    Because winter is here and my bald head is cold

    Companion bench vise item# 9990000092759111
    The last tool I need

    Fuzion Carbon Scooter item# 1030000000705713
    Xmas gift

    The rest would be clothes for the kids. (true, not a cop out) so insert multiple SKUs here:

  88. I retweeted (http://twitter.com/JustJulie/status/1034801815)

  96. This morning you wrote that we had to be quick to comment because the winner would be randomly selected from the first 25 entries.

    Going from 1-in-25 odds to 1-in-hundreds kind of sucks. No offense, but changing the rules in the middle of a contest is crap.

  107. Somehow I’m without any sort of TV whatsoever. I’d have to go straight for the $499 Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p) #012W804958950001.

    No question. Wish me luck.

    By the way, I think I’d probably follow that purchase up with a new AppleTV…purchased elsewhere, I guess.

  108. Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p)

    Kmart item #012W804958950001
    Mfr. model #ELCHS321

  109. My husband was recently diagnosed with a bad heart and I would get him things to help his quest to live longer and prosper with me:

    An exercise bike to help his exercise program – Weslo Pro 10.8X Recumbent Cycle – 080W106469110001

    To build memories – JVC MiniDV Camcorder – 9990000054797011

    He loves big, fluffy towels. These would be great after a work out – Martha Stewart Everyday 5 Star Bath Towel – 30 in. x 58 in. – 048W031717130001
    5.99 x 2

    These will make him shreek. We can’t keep pasta bowls for very long. New “victims” would be held in high regard – 2520000000005189

    Yay! With 3.05 to spare…I could never do this in real life! LOL
    Good for you for supporting the troops. We sponsor a K9 and handler in Afghanistan. Love the doggies.

  110. I hope no one copies me: If I had the $500, I would buy twenty $25 “Snowboarding Santa” eCard giftcards (Kmart item # 063W103355230001 Mfr.model # 101349) and give them away to my readers in a Christmas Contest!!! =)

    Looks like you had fun shopping man!

  111. I’d spend it on environmentally-friendly LED Christmas lights to decorate my house! My personal favorite best way to stimulate the economy and spread a little Christmas cheer!

    LED Icicle Lights (009B684179110001P) x 31

    My house will be visible from space! 🙂

  116. You know, since K-Mart is virtually the only retailer that still offers LAYAWAY it would be an awesome idea to use the $500 card as a downpayment on a $2000 layaway.

    Thats like a wii, xbox 360, PS3 and a bunch of games.

  117. I love kmart.

    Having a $500 gift card would be great since I’m currently laid off.

    If I have $500 from k-mart, these would be the christmas gifts to my family:

    Mfr. model# 52257711. (My microwave is from Target, circa 1983. My kids refuse to stand near it.) The Kenmore Elite costs $149.99.

    Also, I’m afraid I’ll need that Yard-Man 8.5 amp Electric Snow Thrower. In fact, the weather report says I’ll need it by tomorrow morning.
    Kmart item# 1020000015850000 Mfr. model# 0015850000 Price: $169.99.

    1. I’ve always wanted to win one of those sprees where you run through the store with a buggy and fill it in ten minutes. My problem is I always win stuff like Brittney Spears tickets or Nascar or something else I’m not interested in.

  124. Underwear, definitely underwear.

    Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in and I don’t want to enter the contest…but seriously – underwear.

      1. Hubby and dad get underwear every Christmas from their
        moms so we are following the same tradition with
        our boys…
        Seriously, men need underwear..Lol.

  125. Wow, that’s a lot of things one can get from kmart with $500. It’s a pitty that I’m in South Africa and don’t have kmart stores here, so I can’t enter. But goodluck to everyone who can and will enter! 😉

  126. Hmm, let’s see…I’d ditch my 19in blurry CRT and grab a nice flatscreen, probably sku: 105000000VX2240W, $365.99, and a nice digital camera, 1080000001393883, $129.99, which would make my life easier when trying to ebay stuff:)

    That comes out to 495.98, before tax.

  127. If you need me to send you the postage on the Spiderman scuba set, no problem. Thanks for picking that up for me!

  128. sku 0 5679600385 5 quantity 10 baby formula

    sku 0 3600052173 3 quantity 14 baby diapers

    That is what we need, desperately! We live in Canada so our prices are more expensive, but guess what? we will be in Texas for two weeks just in time to use the K-Mart gift card!!

  129. I refuse to shop at kmart. Their merchandise was made by the lowest bidder at slave wages.

    If you want some shoddy crap from overseas, made by slaves, then go ahead and shop Kmart.

  130. thanks for the shopping adventure

  131. some TV of some sort, who knows? They CLOSED our KMart a few years ago, which had been open and loved by all since 1974. 🙁 I’ve not shopped for socks or underwear since. I refuse to go to Wal-Mart.

  132. If I had that gift card my daughter’s room would be updated to fit her growing. She still has lil toddler stuff in there and she’s 5 (going on 18) My $500 would consist of…

    Twin Size Bunk Bed (#9990000004068211) my daughter is still in a toddler bed and is need a bigger bed and we need the extra bed for my soon to be step daughter so we can stop blowing up an air mattress every time she visits $189.99

    Twin Size Mattress (#9990000025779411) x 2 for the beds $52.24 x 2 $104.48

    Study Center (#1200000000034012) She’s also gotten to big for her small table and chairs set this is perfect since she loves lime green.. $139.99

    Comforter for the bed since i’ll need 2 now (#048W825376110001 ) $29.99

    Sheet set (#048W825335110001) $16.99 x 2… $33.98

    That comes to $498.43

    Still need a few misc things I would need to replace.. Toy Box (solid wood white) to replace the dora the explorer toy bins for one.. We have already started cleaning out her old baby toys to take to the donate to the salvation army for other lil kids.. Anyway that’s mine! 🙂

  133. […] shopping experience. Participating bloggers include Chris Brogan, Loren Feldman, Michelle Madhok, Jeremy Schoemaker, Julie Roy and Wendy Piersall. To take it one step further, those who leave comments on any of […]

  134. I can’t even begin to describe how much thought I put into this.

    $49.99 WII, Kung Fu Panda:Legendary Warriors
    * Kmart item #255WIIACT8342501
    (For my stepson who is getting a Wii from his mother.)

    $97.00 Heritage Collection 3-in-1 Convertible Crib-Natural
    * Kmart item #9990000013561512
    (I had a baby two months ago, and all we have is a portable crib that was given to us. This could last her through high school because it can be used as a full size headboard! Planning ahead. AND it’s on clearance.)

    $99.99 Martha Stewart Everyday 7ft Aspen Mountain Tree with 600 Lights
    Kmart item# 009W673080110001
    (Because last year we had a “Charlie Brown Christmas tree,” and this year we probably won’t buy one ’til after Christmas when all the holiday markdowns happen. We should have done that last year! Doh!)

    $129.99 Canon 8.0MP Digital Camera, PowerShot A590 IS
    Kmart item# 020W678161110001

    (For my mom. It’s a pretty simple model to use and it would be her first digital camera. It’s hard to go wrong with a Canon.)

    $99.99 100 Canon Office All In One
    Kmart item# 105000MX300PIXMA

    (Because we’re always going to the library or Kinko’s if we need to print something, and this could also do photos for those times I only need a few pictures and don’t want to go to a store for them. It would be a great gift for us to share.)

    14.99 Martha Stewart Everyday 4-Piece Stainless Steel Steak Knife Set
    Kmart item# 011W696713110001

    (I don’t know how we’re getting by with only butter knives and a single butcher knife.)

    7,99 Munchkin Baby Food Grinder
    Kmart item# 9990000030151111

    (So I can make my own baby food, because she’ll be on solids before I know it!!)

    Total: 499.94


  135. With only 180.00 and 3 little boys to make Christmas for, this gift card would be truly a Christmas Miracle!

    One of the things that our 9 year old has on his list is a remote control race car. This one at kmart would really surprise him on Christmas Morning:

    Radio Control Audi R8
    Kmart item# 1030000000644023, Mfr. model #644023

    Thanks to all the bloggers, CreativeMedia and especially Kmart for the chance to win. Merry Christmas to all!

  136. I would get my mom this GPS system for her car (Kmart item# 232000RF98092001) And we both can enjoy this tv! (Kmart item# 018W398742110001) Grand total of $499.98! 🙂

  137. If we win, I could get just about everything on the boys’ lists. The boys (8,9, and 10) haven’t asked for much, except our baby, the 8 year old. He asked Santa Claus for a reel golden retreever (his sp). I don’t think Kmart sells those, but the only the other things he wants is a workbench and a reel bumblebee toy. I was surprised to find the real bumble bee toy on their website. Even if we don’t win, I’ll have to get this one – he’s really cute:

    Li’l Lewis Li’l Lewis Kids Pillow, Bumble Bee
    Sears item# 01420172000 Mfr. model# 585

    Thanks for the chance everyone!

  138. For my son who calls me from 1500 miles away for directions –
    Magellan Maestro 4210 Auto Navigation System ($279.99 0
    Sears item# 05726487000 Mfr. model# 980-0015-001

    For my dog (Clem) who insists on sleeping on MY bed –
    Serta Serta Pet Bed – Light Blue 36″ x 27″ Rectangle ($54.99)
    Kmart item# 15000000000C6017 Mfr. model# C6017

    For my husband the “GOLFER”
    15 ft. Golf Ball Retriever ($12.99)
    Kmart item# 9990000027020611 Mfr. model# I99062
    & lots of these (just in case the retriever doesn’t work)
    Callaway HX Hot Golf Balls ($24.99)
    Kmart item# 080W879260110001 Mfr. model# 640404012116

    and for ME, a little peace & quiet…
    AO Safety Safety Ear Plugs ($2.99)
    Kmart item# 9990000032216811 Mfr. model# 32216811

  139. I would get the Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p) Kmart item #012W804958950001 for DH. It is $499.99 . DH deserves a new TV for all the hard work he does, we don’t have HDTV and he would love to have one. Problem is, with three kids you know where the money goes and it isn’t to Dad! This would help to purchase him an awesome gift.

  140. Hrm… since most my check is going to the kids, think I’ll go for something for me. PS3! Best blu-ray player out there.
    Kmart item# 018W963975110001 Sony PS3 $399.99

  141. I need more XBOX 360 games for the kids (and maybe myself)! Plus toys for the kids…I am also proud to be a complete Star Wars geek so if they had anything Star Wars-related it would be mine 🙂

    Pick me, dude! I need toys under my tree and some Martha Stewart towels…

  142. You certainly got a lot for your money. I’d spend it all in one shot:
    Kmart item# 012W804958950001 Mfr. model# ELCHS321 – $499.99

  143. […] ShoeMoney is giving away a $500 gift card to Kmart. I would like to win that one. They have a nice Star Wars section […]

  144. Is that the one on Vine Street? i was just in Lincoln for Thanksgiving and am feeling a bit nostalgic . . .

  145. What would I spend a gift card to K-Mart on? Wow, that was a hard one. I really wanted the TV, since the one we share in the living room is a 19″ tube style. Our bigger TV died a few months back and we haven’t been able to replace it yet. Then I decided that since the prices are so good at http://www.kmart.com I could probably do even better. So, I set out on a search and this is what I decided. I hope it’s good enough to win. I would replace my daughter’s bedroom furniture, since hers was used and given to her at the age of four (she is not 17 and way past this kind of bedroom furnitur). Believe it not, I was able to get a room full of furniture with the $500. Well, I will have to put about $20.00 plus tax in, but that’s nothing for a whole room full of furniture. Can you believe it? Here’s my list:

    Headboard, Chocolate Kmart item# 187000003159-270 $79.99

    5-Drawer Chest, Chocolate Kmart item# 187000003159-035 $139.99

    6-Drawer Triple Dresser, Chocolate Kmart item# 187000003159-010

    Mirror, Chocolate Kmart item# 187000003159-122 $79.99

    Night Table, Chocolate Kmart item# 187000003159-062 $64.99

    So, that’s it. My list for KMart. I hope I win! My daughter would be thrilled to get a new bedroom for Christmas.

  146. I’ll concede my ping pong table and foosball table to someone else…sadly. I don’t even think we have a Kmart in this town anymore

  147. If I won I’d give my kitchen a SERIOUS facelift. Most of the stuff we have, we received when we married ten years ago. Check out my pretend shopping spree (which I would LOVE to make a reality!)

  157. I would get xmas/birthday presents for friends and family! And maybe some stuff for a families house that burnt down. We are blessed and I don’t even NEED anything 🙂

  158. I need to finish what is left of the shopping for my kiddos:

    My oldest daughter wants a digital camera….Soo…
    Kodak 9.2MP Digital Camera Bundle w/ 1GB SD Memory Card
    Kmart item# 020W377312110001 119.99

    My oldest son wants a bike..he calls it a “trick bike”
    Mongoose 20 in BMX RipCord Bike
    Kmart item# 9990000036950411

    I caught a great deal on black friday at Wallyworld so my two younger
    sons would have new bikes – (29 Bucks ea)
    But they need helmets…
    Bell Reconâ„¢ (X3) 19.99 / 59.97
    Kmart item #080W301366110001

    That’s 359.95 so far..
    The rest would go to socks, undies, and 3 or 4 warm outfits for my
    youngest..(we have 5 kids)

  159. Well I know what I would use it for but I think there is others out there that could use it more then me, I lost my job and so did so many other people and they have families so I guess I would most likely give it away to one of my friends who could use it but damn it would be nice to get a new tv I have had my big box of a tv since 1997 yeah way before HDMI and it only has one set of connections for A/V (red,yellow,white wires) Guess the 32in flat panel would be nice but It is the time for giving so I would give it away or maybe take a group of us who lost our jobs out and by $500.00 worth of items. Anyway there is no item number for that so I am making one up

    Free shopping spree or give way = Kmspree1384
    flat panel tv Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p) Kmart item# 012W804958950001

  160. My girlfriend really deserves to have a nice digital camera for the holidays however we cannot afford one at this time. So many moments with the kids are lost due to not having one

    This is what I would buy along with accessories for it.
    Kmart item# 108000000DMCTZ5K Mfr. model# DMCTZ5K

  161. That is so cool that you got the thermals for the soldiers.The only thing I am trying to get for the family is the Xbox 360 item #Kmart item# 9990000042317511 Mfr. model# B4J-00001 so we can all have fun with it together.

  162. Since K-Mart doesn’t sell pornography or hard liquor, and I couldn’t find any firearms on the website, I’ll go with a sweet iPod touch (018W929092640001) and the Guitar Hero bundle for PS3 (255PS3ACT9545101)

  163. This would be so much fun to win! I would love to buy a new tv to replace the one I ruined when I tried to take the cable cord off the back. Who knew I shouldn’t just pull!
    item# 012W652770350001 flat screen tv $379.99
    Then I would like to buy 3 of item # 048W677621110001 sheet sets to donate to the battered women’s shelter. $22.49 each.

  164. great giveaway.
    i would first buy this tv, because mine is like 30 years old.
    $349.99-plasma t.v.-012W804709360001
    then with the remaing, i would buy,bed in a bag-9990000016693312, and last the smart cycle for my babygirl-004W070612010001. this is right around $500, give or take a few cents.
    good luck, everyone!!!

  165. Items I would choose:
    Kmart item# 018W929086050001
    Kmart item# 018W929092100001
    Kmart item# 1030000000274200
    That way I could get an ipod for both my sister and i, and a toy to give as a gift to a little one.

    thanks so much, the pics of you shopping for the toys was too cute!

  166. To kick off the family’s New Year’s resolutions, I’d get a treadmill like Weslo Pro Crosswalk 7.8 Treadmill (Kmart item# 080W112396110001) for $399.99. And end of year work stress is killing me so I’d also consider the Everlast Free Standing Heavybag Kit (Kmart item# 080W594781110001) $99.99

  167. No local KMarts 🙁 Good thing they sell online. I’d get:
    Element 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV (720p) (012W804958950001)

  168. I’m digging:

    Full/Queen Avalon Faux Leather Upholstered Headboard in Chocolate, item# 281KM774XXCHOC14 ($99.99)

    Essential Home Sofa Sleeper, item# 021W736429110001 ($349.99)

    Derry 3-Piece Rug Set, item# 070W053676110001 ($47.99)

    Bringing my grand total to: $497.97

    Who knew spending imaginary money could be so much fun?

  169. I tweeted: http://twitter.com/barbarabaker

    And as far as what I’d spend the 500.00 on, well, mama needs a new vacuum cleaner (me):
    Bissell ProHeat 2Xâ„¢ Select Floor Cleaner, in Purple
    Kmart item# 9990000037514911 Mfr. model# 9200

    The rest of the money would probably go to toys for the kids (such things like):
    Precious Gems 23-Piece Doll Playset (this would have to be a definite for both girls age 5 and 7)
    Kmart item# 1030000000720026 Mfr. model# 720026
    for my 15 year old son I’d get:
    Microsoft XB360 Live 12 month Time Card
    Kmart item# 1630000000400061 Mfr. model# 400061

    So, there you have it, anything left over would probably go to what ever floats my boat at the time and I’m sure I’d find things for the hubby too…can’t forget him!!!!

  170. Kmart has Apple? Who new? Really, if I had not stumbled to this blog…would never have suspected. But… I would sooo get an I touch! Apple 32GB iPod® Touch Digital Media Player – Black
    Kmart item# 018W929092640001 Mfr. model# MB533LL/A

    At just $399.00… I would have a bit left over to pick pick up an Ipod for the hubby too… =)

  171. I have three young boys (Anthony: 9, Nathan: 5, and Joel: 3) and Christmas is SO tight this year! I nearly cried at the thought of a $500 gift card for Kmart!

    Anthony would absolutely love the ‘Orbitor 40mm Star Searcher Telescope’ (Kmart item # 1030000000388972.) He is a major science buff and this would get a lot of of use by both him as well as the rest of the family.

    For Nathan, I would have to buy this ‘Fisher-Price: I Can Play Guitar Plug ‘N Play Learning System’ (Kmart item # 1030000000324408) He has loved his guitar since he was two and I would like to see him begin to learn how to really play one.

    My toddler, Joel, has a love for the outdoors so, the ‘Chair-a-go-round’ (Kmart item # 1030000000422707) would be perfect for him and his brothers to play on.

    The ‘8.5″ Widescreen TFT Portable DVD/CD/MP3 Player’ (Kmart item# 1030000000749870) would be the perfect gift that I certainly wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise. Then, they’d be entertained on our long commute in the morning and evenings.

    That would leave me with around one-hundred dollars to spend. While they may not make the most awe-inspiring gifts, I’m afraid I would have to spend the rest of the money on clothes. They each need jeans so I would definitely get them all a pair or two of those.

  172. Thanks for the great giveaway! 🙂

    Kmart item# 028W787678110001 Mfr. model# B06W1B-28

  175. I could use anything just to let my son have Christmas. We haven’t been able to buy not a single thing this year and we’ve already told our son we wouldn’t be celebrating Christmas this year. I was injured on the job and his father has cancer, so were uunable to do christmas. He was sad, but what kid wouldn’t be. Just my thoughts, and congratulations to every one who gets picked, just remember there are some kids out in there that don’t get a Christmas due to something they had no control over.

  176. Heh! Kmart is 2 minutes from my house! woo hoo!

    * I’m not greedy! I don’t need to have all of these, but they sure would look good in my house! 🙂

  177. To be honest, tehre are many more needy people than me and if I was to win, I would send it to a family who is really in need. My wife wrote on her blog about a 18 yo boy who may be facing his last Christmas because his kidneys are failing. That is what i would do is give it to his mother to help him have a great Christmas.


  178. I am so jealous! LOL But I am glad someone had so much fun! I’ve been going to “my” KMart since I was a kid and live right down the street. My husband is temporarily laid off and we are buying on credit right now, so my $500 card would go to produce, meat and dairy! LOL Not so fun or glamorous, but we have 8 kids, so that’s what I’d do!

  179. I would TOTALLY replace my camera that I dropped one too many times:

    Item #108000000DMCTZ5A $349.99

  180. I would use it to buy Christmas gifts for my family. My sister bought me so much compared to what I could get for her. A $11 vase that she wanted. I haven’t been able to get anyone else anything yet. =[ I can’t find a job anywhere. Not even McDonalds around here. It’s ridiculous. I’ve been looking for 5 months, and trying to pay a $200 car payment. So any money I get, goes to that. $500 would surely cover everyone on my list. That would definitely make my Christmas.
    Congrats to you and those who won!

  181. I have 3 kids and I can not get them what they would like, I am berly paying the rent! if I were to get the $500. it would be a great !! K Mart ia great!!02038816000 Hoover Upright Vacuum $99.99

  200. I’m a single mom. I have two young children. One is high needs. I work at home at night and homeschool during the day. I’d love to spend this on items for Christmas and just learning. Both kids love science and gardening. My daughter loves dolls and purses and lipgloss too (she is 6). My son is also a huge Lego and Star Wars fan. I would spend some of the money on school hands-on, fun kits, plants and toys. Spend some on a winter wardrobe (we are in California but my daughter only owns one sweater and one jacket and the jacket was my son’s last years’s. My son needs a jacket and some long sleeve shirts. I think after all that the money would be gone! Here are some sku #’s;

    1030000000226016 x 2 (one for each child).
    049W389407150001 x 2

    After all of this (yes, I try to be a thrifty or frugal shopper to make the money last) I would have less then $5 left and I’d buy some lip gloss for my daughter (I can’t find sku #’s for it).

    Happy Holidays!


  201. I am in desperate need of a real dining table and chairs, so I would buy the Farmhouse Dining Collection. Of course I would get 4 chairs at least. Then I would see what my local store had for nice table decorations.

  203. ShoeMoney. This is awesome. Congrats on the gift. I heard about it through K-Mart. Next year you’ll see me getting the free $500.00 gift card also. 😉

  204. […] I clicked through on to Chris Brogan’s Dadomatic site and read his experience. He had a wicked time. He took his kids and bought a ton of cool stuff. Likewise with Julia Roy and 1938 Media’s Jeremy Schoemaker. […]

  205. I’ll pass on the tv. It’s monitor all the way.
    Kmart item# 10800000HPW2408H Mfr. model# HP W2408H

  206. I am a single mom with three little girls and have done hardly any Christmas shopping at all. What I wouldn’t do to have this card!!! My daughters are 6,7 and 9 and the stuff below would blow their mind!!

    Also since we have never had a Christmas tree over 4ft…I would probably start with a big beautiful tree and lots of ornaments and lights!!!

    My 7 year old would love:
    State Fair Roller Coaster Set
    Kmart item# 1030000000278416 Mfr. model# 278416

    My 9 year old would love:
    Barbie Globe
    Kmart item# 1030000000276978 Mfr. model# 276978

    My 6 year old would love:
    Fancy Dining Playset
    Kmart item# 1030000000726792 Mfr. model# 726792

  209. I’d definitely get a new XBOX 360 #05891057000 so I can watch Netflix movies and play Rock Band 2 on the same console!

    Kmart item# 1400000088599489 Mfr. model# 88599489
    I twittered it, too.

  211. I’ve been featuring a charity a day on my blog for weeks now encouraging my readers to help others during the holidays. In the same spirit I’d buy toys for my local charities toy drives

  212. I don’t need anything from KMart .. except for this lamp .. and that’s all I need .. and maybe this chair .. my lamp and my chair that’s all I need .. ok … and this remote control … I don’t need anything else ..

    Terribly sorry for the stupid post Jeremy .. I just watched the Jerk last night on TV and for some reason KMart made me think of that .. is there something subliminal in that? hmmmmm I don’t know

    By the way thats great you are sponsoring a soldier. I just started a charity type blog for my local Kansas City http://communitybetterment.com/ .. 3 days since launching and 30,000+ pageviews .. I just threw a few affiliates on there one being a donation through the USO to give free phone cards to the troops .. couple hours later somebody donated $500 .. That was the best $500 I didn’t make for myself 🙂

  213. I would probably buy a cheap laptop or something cool for my desk to make me happy when i wake up.

  214. I would get my husband a playstation and my sister some cookware

  216. I too remember the days of my Mom taking me to Kmart for back to school shopping. It was always a good economic decision and I remember the flashing blue light specials long before their *ahem* competitor that starts with a “W”.

    Anyways, my wife and I just found out we’re pregnant with our first child so we would use the gift card to outfit our nursery with some of these fun items:

    Disney Baby All-In-Oneâ„¢ Swing

    Then, for my fifteen year old daughter, I’d scoop up the 16GB iPod Nano Kmart item# 018W929087900001 Mfr. model# MB913LL/A $199.99

    For my wife, the Nerf N-strike Vulcan Kmart item #004W689218110001 Mfr. model #66857 $39.99
    What? She likes shooting toys! This thing’s the ultimate!
    Also for my wife, the Marquise Opal Ring, which is online only, so I couldn’t find an item number, but the price is $113.99

    And last, for the household, I would get the Shark cordless hand vacuum for all those spilled Fruit Loops and Cheerios. Kmart item# 006W851068110001 Mfr. model# SV736 $36.99

    Which brings us to a grand total of $490.95.

    Not a bad haul. This is a great idea! I’m so glad that major corporations are understanding the value of social media, and I look forward to participating in contests like this in the future!

  220. ooo. There’s no Kmart at My country..
    It is pity I can’t win the gift..
    But shoe $500 is it enough for your goods?

  221. First, a PS3 – 018W963975110001 – as I only have a PSX. Then I’d get new pruners for work, like the Felco Pruner No. 7 (142000719969).

    Then I’d get cookies.

  222. 1. Garmin Nuvi 255W GPS Navigator w/ 4.3 in. Widescreen Display

  223. Cool stuff!

    I tweeted and here’s what I’d get:

    Panasonic 9.1MP Digital Camera
    Kmart item# 108000000DMCTZ5K

    & probably –
    5.0MP Pocket Digital Camcorder
    Kmart item# 1070000AIPDV5900

    but I could mix it up somewhat to go with the camera. Just depends on what great deals they had that day.

  224. I tweeted: http://twitter.com/retta719/status/1044139831

    With hubby just home from the hospital & on disability for the next few months our budget is tiny so I’d definitely be shopping for our boys for the holidays. A $500 gift card is just enough to get them each a DS -OR- a bike! They’ve been wanting bikes since we moved this summer.

    #080W350353110001 yellow for Noah item #080W115236110001 orange for Lucas #080W114328110001 blue for Ethan #9990000017514112 silver and blue for Dylan

  225. Wow! If I won the $500 Kmart gift card, this is what I would spend it on:

    1. Kmart item# 018W929092640001 Mfr. model# MB533LL/A . This is a 32 GB iPod Touch Digital Media/Player.

    This is the only item she has listed on her Christmas list. As you can probably see why…the cost is extraordinary. It’s $399.99. Since I have a few bucks left over, I would throw in two more items below:

    2. Kmart item# 10500000MC127036 Mfr. model# 050644356568 (Monster Cable iPod Travel Pack, and

    3. Case Logic Fitted Case for iPod® Touch – Black
    Kmart item# 018W909070110001 Mfr. model# ITC-1

  226. I’m reposting my comment since I just read the izea.com contest rules, and I don’t think my initial post met all the requirements. Anyhow, I’m glad I reread your article and reviewed the contest requirements. It looks like you can buy quite a bit from Kmart with $500. I revisited Kmart.com site to see if I can find something better than I listed in my earlier post since the item in the earlier post was much higher than $500. My new items are below:

    1. Kmart item #018W929092640001
    Mfr. model #MB533LL/A (Apple 32 GB iPod Touch Digital Media Player-Black).

    2. Kmart item# 018W909070110001 Mfr. model# ITC-1 (Case Logic Fitted Case for iPod Touch-Black).

    3. Kmart item# 10500000MC127036 Mfr. model# 050644356568 (Monster Cable iPod Travel Pack)

  227. I would spend the gift card on the tomtom GPS, ONE 130 Portable GPS Navigation Device (#018W405439110001) and the Zune 8GB Digital Media Player, Black (#018W966512110001). Both would come in handy when traveling. I’d also get the Sony DVD Player w/ 1080p Upconversion (#018W686907110001) for movie nights.

  231. I’m very lucky to be married to a man who builds furniture for us. So the first thing I would buy with the $500 would be this, because I know he needs one:

    1. Craftsman 7-1/4 in. Miter Saw with Laser Tracâ„¢
    Kmart item# 010W652764870001

    Kmart item #9990000079683424

    4. My daughter never stops moving, ever, so to help her burn some of that energy, I’d buy her this:
    Jump Start Trampoline
    Kmart item# 1030000000373462

    5. And then, because I’ve worked so hard all year and really deserve it, I’d buy myself this: Blue Topaz Cushion and White Topaz 3-Stone Ring, 10K Yellow Gold , available online only so I don’t see an item number, but the URL for the page is http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_18205044ZA007000P?mv=rr

    Man, I hope I win.

  232. […] must be the month of blog contests.  You have the Kmart/IZEA $500 giveaway on blogs like Shoemoney, Market Leverage’s December promotion where you can win a Flip Video camera or iPod Nano, […]

  235. K-Mart has been a staple in my life for ever. They do great things for our community as well. They let the Salvation Army ring bells, let the Boy Scouts sell their popcorn, sponsor Little League and Softball Tournments and many many more chartible gestures.

    We have a mission in our community called The Lighthouse Outreach Center. One of the things I’m involved in is the feeding of the poor and elderly. They also sponsor a Children’s Christmas Program giving all kinds of toys and gifts to needy kids. Pastor Mel said becuse of the economy there are more kids and less donations. This would be a great opportunity to bless them.

    That’s my wish list!

  236. This X’mas my family plans to visit the LA Mission. I will shop for the following which are on the Mission’s wish list: big size clothes – Joe Boxer Big Men’s Lined Zip Hoodie (15) 046W795200120001,Joe Boxer Big Men’s Fleece Pant with Elastic & Drawstring (15) 046W854381130001, & Fruit of the Loom Men’s Crew T-shirt – White 5 pack (10) 9990000013996015.
    4 me? I just want throws for my kids: Spongebob Squarepants & Thomas the Train Thomas #1 Ultra Soft Toddler Blanket. Merry Xmas!

  244. I was just at KMart yesterday scoping out the Joe Boxers holiday underwear for my son-they are hilarious and now a Christmas tradition, tee shirts for another son, clothes and toys for the grandchildren, more underwear for hubby. I would have no problem at all using up a gift card. Pretty Please!

  245. Nice post – I love it when there are a lot of pics to go with the story!!! And WOW lots of comments here!! No wonder you’re a champ of the blogging world!!

    Kmart item# 004W957431110001 Mfr. model# L9049

    THANK YOU!!!

  247. If I were granted a $500 to KMart, I would purchase a TV for my parents, whom just recently were laid off, after being employed with the same company for 20 years. Unlike most, I would be taking some who are less fortunate into consideration, opposed to acquiring an ADDITIONAL television for myself.


    Thanks for your consideration,

  248. I attempted to post this once before, but it seems that it was unsuccessful. If I was granted a $500 gift card, I would purchase item 018W677925110001 for my parents, as both of them were laid off, due to the economy after being employed for 20 years. I would take into consideration someone, other than myself, whom needs or wants something this Holiday season opposed to acquiring an ADDITIONAL television. And since, I cannot afford to purchase them one, being that they don’t own one, I know this wouild make them happy.

    Thanks for your considertion!

  249. I would buy christmas for some very needy children. 500.00 would buy a lot of gifts for several children who would not have anything this year.

  250. Well here I go again on my own going down another blog I’ve been before. Like a shopper, I was born to go alone.

  251. I would buy this monitor:
    Hewlett-Packard HP W2408H HP LCD Monitor
    Kmart item# 10800000HPW2408H Mfr. model# HP W2408H

    Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  252. Well if I was to win this contest, I would spend it on my daughter. Since it is Christmas. To explain, I got let go from my job about a month ago now. We had to use the money that we have/had, to of course pay bills and keep food in the house. So my wife and I are not able to give our daughter the Christmas we would like. Being I am buy for my daughter I would rather a Toys-R-Us gift card, but seeing this is for K-mart Here is the list I would get for my daughter. It will total to about $492.87 with tax. P.S. – If I do win, I would like to say I would be happy to send pics of her opening the gifts and a copy of the invoice to show we did use it for our daughter and this is not just a sad story to win.

  266. I am definitely use the money to have some fun including purchasing
    item# 018W710255110001, a brand new xbox elite system!!!!
    That would be nice!

  267. Amazing all in itself.
    Gift Card and what a amazing time during Christmas holiday.
    I am not a selfish person and really would ask nothing for myself other than praying that someone recieve this award to be honest and true
    and donate it to children in need of Christmas. I pray that this person has a big heart and has much faith in christmas.

  268. I would get this:
    Sylvania 32 in. (Diagonal) Class LCD Integrated HDTV
    Kmart item# 018W677925110001

    It would definitely take a shopping spree for me to shop there though. We have one in town and I purposely drive 25 minutes away to get to Target! It’s a much more enjoyable (and cheaper) shopping experience there. I wish the Kmart in my area would realize that a dark store with no employees is not the way to grow a business.

  269. Being as our Television went out a few months ago and haven’t had the funds to replace it I would probably get this.
    Thank You

  276. I would purhase a laptop for a Viet Vetran who lost his leg and is in a vets hospital in VA. These guys are mostly alone and this is their only way to get outside of the walls of the facility..No atte who you choose God Bless you and your decision

  277. I would take 200.00 and buy coats, hats, and gloves for kids in a shelter that need them. Then I would take the rest and spend it on my son, husband, nieces, and nephews. And if I had anything left I would buy myself a pair of shoes.

  278. Hi, I love that you thought of others. In this season of giving and thinking of others I just haven’t seen much of that this year. With the world in a financial mess I still believe in the human race and faith that we are basically good. If I had the $500 I would spend most of it on my family. My husband has been out of work since July so this Christmas isn’t so much about gifts as it is about the spirit of Christmas and giving. My son and I have managed to scrape up enough money to buy a few gifts for the toys for tots program. Tomorrow I will go to the main drop off in my area to drop off the gifts that we have collected. That will give me a true feeling of the holidays.

  279. I would get 20-40 pound dumbells, rollerblades, a helmet, knee and elbow pads, a skate board, a basketball hoop thing, a basketball, some new silverware, baking pans, a handball (sport), handball gloves, handball goggles, clothing (yes, I am deperate for that), and that should be good. Functional, and good. Although, I need my stress fracture (fibula) to heal up first, and I’d hope all my tendonitis-es (almost every joint at this point) would be at least somewhat healed up, too.

    That, OR, I’d just buy stuff for my brother, mom, and dad for Chanukah. Especially, since right now, and possibly for a while longer I’ll be sidelined.

  280. Okay. I’ll take:

    White Student Desk – $49.99
    Kmart Item # 9990000021264411
    UPC Item #29986076151

    Modular Storage – $135.99

    Last but not least AO Safety Safety Ear Plugs (Kmart item# 9990000032216811)


  282. I have never won anything in my life, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Kmart is the closest store to us, Walmart is almost 20 miles away. And an added feature that we need and appreciate is LAYAWAY. Thank you KMART!!!! They also have inexpensive toys that last! We’re a military family on a limited budget and this year we have absolutely nothing to give our 3 kids, age 17, 2 1/2 and 7 months. Yes, we know there’s a big gap in their ages. It would give us an opportunity to let our eldest daughter be the first of her friends to get something. We didn’t even do birthdays this year. DARN ECONOMY!! We’re praying for a miracle. And a miracle it would be if we were able to get the items below:
    Sony PLAYSTATION®3 Kmart item# 018W963975110001 Mfr. model# PS3 SCE 98006, $399.99

  284. Mr ShoeMoney,

    I haven’t looked at many blogs before, but yours was quite interesting, LOL!!! I loved all the photos and the comments.

    We have had a rough year this year. Hubby’s company has not come through with many promises they have made, and we have been living on our credit cards most of the year. I’m not trying to sound like a sob story, honestly. I am one of the most positive people you will ever meet. We WILL survive!!! I would use the gift card to buy essentials that our family needs to live on. I’m not sure these items have SKU#’s. This is a very kind thing that you and KMart are doing.

  285. I need a new bed for my son! He’s getting really tall.

  300. I am sorry my list is SO long but I would try and replace essential items for a family(2 adults-4 children) that lost everything in a house fire last week–i know toys will be provided so i picked each one a suit of clothes then i picked things you have to have–so here goes
    canister set 2520000000000689
    8 pc storage set 9990000035335811
    2 cp storage bowls (qnty 2) 9990000001206611

    it took me a very LONG time to look up all the sizes and sku numbers but if i can win a chance to help out this family it will be worth it–i would just buy the items but my husband has kidney failure and we do home dialysis so we are on a fixed income.

  337. Hmmm, that would be fun, I think I would start with some LED light bulbs, they save money and are better for the environment that CFL’s (don’t have the mercury in them) Then I would buy a space heater and use it to heat the area around the tv room so I can space heat instead of heating the entire house. After that, practical things… used on a near daily/weekly basis ( I know boring but it would help save money)

  342. It is my opinion the ideal hand tool I have in my tool bag is the cordless drill, Recently I dismantled my bedroom and did a total reconstruction and the power tool I used the most and was truly useful was my cordless drill. I believe for each individual project in the home I had the battery powered cordless drill in my hand. It is my opinion the reconstruction project may have taken twice the time if I was without my favorite power tool.
