Did Someone Say ‘Free’? Exchange Launching Fee-Free Layaway Ahead of the Holidays

DALLAS – Soldiers, Airmen and military families can get a jump-start on holiday shopping thanks to the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s fee-free layaway.

From Sept. 1 to Dec. 24, the Exchange will waive its $3 service fee for items priced at $25 or more. Toys, bikes, clothing and more are included.

“The holidays tend to sneak up on us, and before we know it we’re having to buy last-minute gifts for loved ones,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “The Exchange’s holiday layaway offers a great way to plan your gift list and stay on budget—and keep special presents out of sight.”

To place items on layaway, military shoppers pay a deposit of 15% of the purchase price. Items must be picked up by Dec. 24.

For program details and eligibility information, shoppers can visit their local Exchange customer service desk.
