DALLAS – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is helping military students head to the top of the class during the 2017-18 school year by extending its layaway program to include computers and tablets needed to succeed in the classroom.
Through Aug. 31, just in time for back-to-school season, Exchange shoppers can use layaway to hold computers, notebooks, tablets and iPads—items that are not typically eligible for the program.
“Starting off the school year with the right laptop or tablet can be critical to academic success,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “The Exchange’s layaway program is a great choice to not only manage expenses for clothes, shoes and backpacks but computers as well.”
A $3 service fee and a deposit of 15 percent are required to hold items on layaway. Items must be picked up by Aug. 31. Shoppers can visit customer service at their Exchange for complete details.
