LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. — Once again, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service is offering fee-free layaway for Airmen, families and retirees who want to get a jump-start on holiday shopping and keep gifts hidden from inquisitive eyes.

As of Sept. 1, the Luke Exchange will waive the $3 service fee for items that are placed on layaway and paid for by Dec. 24 including toys and bikes. Purchases of $25 or more are eligible for the layaway plan.

“By waiving the service fee, the Luke Exchange is giving military shoppers extra incentive to consider layaway, both as a budgeting tool and as a way to keep curious loved ones from finding their gifts before the big day,” said Aileen Rivenburg, Luke Exchange general manager. “With a few months to go before the holidays, shoppers can start checking off their gift lists and keep presents safely hidden.”

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