It’s well known that if you want anything for any occasion, Kmart should be your first point of call. But now, it seems that the discount retailer is also diving into the dating game, and offering husbands for sale. Need a pen? Go to Kmart! Need a new partner? There’s one waiting at Kmart just for you (if only it was that easy!).

A Kmart shopper has given us the giggles by sharing her Kmart receipt on a Facebook group, detailing that, quite bizarrely, one of the items she purchased was a ‘husband’.

The customer posted a copy of her receipt in the Kmart Home Decor and Hacks Australia Facebook group saying:

“Kmart really does have everything you need!”

The docket, from Kmart in Launceston Tasmania, clearly showed an entry for ‘husband’ just below the entry for a ‘teal Stripe Bag’.

Sadly, the receipt didn’t reveal how much a husband costs in Kmart.

30 day money back guarantee?

The post has attracted over 1,500 comments and they are absolutely hilarious! If you ever need a pick-me-up, pour yourself a glass of wine, check out the post and get ready to laugh.

Some of our favourite retorts included:

“Mine probably wouldn’t be taken, even on clearance”

“I wonder how many get returned……”

“Can you get a refund if it doesn’t work out?”

“What sort of warranty does that come with?”

“Also you can regift!”

“What aisle did you get that in? Are there any left in stock???”

“Quick return it before your 28 days are up!”

“maybe wait for markdowns, that way if you get a dud…it didn’t at least cost you an arm and a leg.”

“Are they any better than than the wild free-range version found outside of Kmart…asking for a friend!”

“Mine was broken as soon as I took him out of the packaging, but you get what you pay for. Took him back for a refund, best decision I’ve ever made!”

“Hope he wasn’t on the clearance table!”

“Can I borrow your docket? Mines broken so need to make an exchange.”

“I went through a whole divorce when I could have just dropped him off at Kmart?!?!?”

“Yeah… I always go to Kmart and end up leaving with useless sh*t!”

What?!? It’s Not REALLY A Husband?

Apparently, the item is actually a birthday card for husbands rather than the husband itself. But given the huge interest in husbands, who knows where Kmart may go with this.

What would be your specifications for the perfect husband if they were sold in Kmart? Tell us in the comments below.

  • Such a lovely post – nice to have something that makes one laugh. The comments gave us all an extra giggle too. Thanks for letting us all know.


  • That’s funny. Love the get a refund idea too.


  • Seriously I would be peeved if my new KMart was not wealthy


  • That is so funny…the comments are equally as funny!! ????????


  • Haha love the comments. No refund policy I guess.


  • I think they’ll refund as well if we do not like the husband


  • I don’t think you’d find him in the cleaning section that’s for sure!


  • I’m in as long as they come with a 30 day money back guarantee lol


  • It’s a shame Kmart only has mass produced ones (normally worth it firvthe price though) so there would be lots of people with the same one as you. It may be hard to tell them apart in a crowded place!


  • My late husband is irreplaceable so I won’t bother looking for another. Must admit I had a good chuckle over that docket. Needs to be framed and when you’re feeling down you just need to look at it and it’ll make you chuckle. It’s certainly priceless


  • I tried to explain this story to my husband, and he couldn’t understand why it was funny.


  • They say go to kmart if you are looking for a wife because women are already there looking for things they dont need


  • Haha I came to see how many returns jokes there were


  • That is quite funny, thanks for sharing.


  • Haha, very funny. I was thinking it was the name of a book or something. My hubby’s a keeper, so I’m not in need of another one.
