Exchange offers fee-free holiday layaway

DALLAS, Texas — A good program just got better as the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s Holiday Layaway program is now fee-free. Shoppers simply select their gifts for layaway and then stop by customer service to complete the process.

“Fee-free” means that while the Exchange collects an initial $3 processing fee for new layaways, that amount is returned to customers, via an Exchange Merchandise Gift Card, upon final payment and pick up their items.

In addition, toy layaway will be extended through Dec. 23. Gifts will be removed from the sales floor and stored until final payment has been made. In addition, for a limited time only, Nov. 1 through Dec. 16, customers can place computers, laptops, iPads and netbooks on layaway.

“The Exchange continues to beat the competition when it comes to selection, service and value,” said Col. Tom Ockenfels, Exchange chief of staff. “Other retailers charge as much as $15 for layaway. Our program saves shoppers money.”

A deposit of only 15 percent is required when starting the layaway process. See customer service for program details and eligibility.

To take advantage of fee-free holiday layaway and extended layaway for toys, visit your local Exchange today.

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is a joint non-appropriated fund instrumentality of the Department of Defense and is directed by a board of directors, which is responsible to the Secretaries of the Army and the Air Force through the Service Chiefs of Staff.  The Exchange has the dual mission of providing authorized patrons with quality merchandise and services at competitively low prices and generating non-appropriated fund earnings as a supplemental source of funding for military morale, welfare and recreation programs.
