Exchange Expands Fee-Free Layaway to Computers, Laptops, Tablets

DALLAS – Military shoppers can ease the strain on their holiday budget and keep electronic gifts out of sight thanks to the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s expanded electronics layaway for the holiday shopping season.

Through Dec. 14, Soldiers, Airmen and other military shoppers can use the Exchange’s fee-free holiday layaway for computers, notebooks, tablets and iPads—items that are not typically eligible for the program.

“The latest technology and gadgets are must-haves on many people’s wish lists,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “The Exchange’s fee-free expanded layaway program is a great way to stick to your budget while also keeping gifts stashed away.”

A deposit of 15% is required to hold items. Items must be paid for and picked up by Dec. 14. Shoppers can visit customer service at their local Exchange for complete details.

Facebook-friendly version: Through Dec. 14, stay on budget and keep those laptops, tablets and iPads hidden from present-hunters with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s expanded fee-free holiday layaway program for electronics.  Read more:
