Kmart's Online Doorbuster Is Kind Of A Bust

Maybe Kmart is now a massive anti-capitalist prank like its sibling store, Sears. They appear to sell things, and taunt consumers with sales and deals, but refuse to actually sell things to anyone. That would explain the advertised-but-defunct sale that Christina recently ran into. (Or a miscommunication between marketing and IT….but that’s way less fun.)

In case you can’t read the screenshots, she explains:

I got this email for Shop Your Way Rewards members, promising amazing deals starting at 11 AM central time today.

When I tried to access the page to see the “mystery deal” the site was “closed for enhancements.”

Duh. That was the mystery.
