Holiday shoppers can keep their loved ones’ gifts out of sight and under wraps until the time is right thanks to the return of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s fee-free layaway plan.

Through Dec. 24, the Fort Hood Exchange will waive the $3 processing fee for all layaway purchases.

Improving on the Exchange’s year-round layaway program, from Nov. 1 through Dec. 16 shoppers can put computers, laptops, notebooks and tablets on layaway (Nov. 29-30 excluded).

“With the Exchange’s holiday layaway plan, shoppers can ensure the most popular gifts are ready and waiting when it’s time to take them home,” said David Swenson, the Fort Hood Exchange’s Clear Creek Main Store manager.

“Nothing says ‘happy holidays’ like no fees and a customized payment plan, thus allowing shoppers to better manage their budgets.”

A deposit of only 15 percent is required when starting the layaway process. Shoppers can visit customer service for complete program details and eligibility information.

This is a good way to buy gifts, the only issue is that some places charge deposits because they have to keep the stock. I've used golayby.com in the past and they do not require deposits. Some food for thought...
