Exchange Offering Layaway on Computers, Laptops and Tablets through Dec. 14

DALLAS – Holiday shoppers can budget easy this year when they shop at Army & Air Force Exchange Service, which, for a limited time, is offering fee-free layaway on computers, laptops, tablets and notebooks – items that are not normally eligible for layaway.

From now until Dec. 14, the Exchange will waive its standard $3 service fee for all layaway purchases that are paid in full within 30 days and picked up on time. Layaway will not be offered for computers, laptops, tablets and notebooks purchased Nov. 27-28.

“Electronic devices are some of the most in-demand holiday gift items the Exchange carries,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “That’s why we are offering to help shoppers fulfill their loved ones’ holiday wishes without breaking the bank – a personal gift from us to Soldiers, Airmen and their families.”

A deposit of 15 percent is required to hold items on layaway at the Exchange. Shoppers can visit customer service for complete program details and eligibility information.
