News Release

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is helping military students head to the top of the class by extending its layaway program to computers and tablets.

From July 1 to Aug. 31, just in time for back-to-school season, The Exchange shoppers can use layaway to put a hold on computers, notebooks and tablets. These electronic items are not typically eligible for the program.

“Having up-to-date technology can be vital to succeeding in the classroom, and The Exchange is making it easier for military families to manage expenses to get the tools students need to succeed,” said Hawaii branch General Manager Robert Rice. “The extended layaway program helps parents and students stick to their back-to-school budgets.”

A $3 service fee and a deposit of 15 percent are required to hold items on layaway. Items must be picked up by Aug. 31. Shoppers can visit customer service at the Schofield Barracks main store or Hickam main store for complete details.

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service goes where Soldiers, Airmen and their families go to improve the quality of their lives through goods and services provided. Exchange earnings provide dividends to support military morale, welfare and recreation programs. The Exchange is part of the Department of Defense and is directed by a Board of Directors, responsible to the Secretaries of the Army and Air Force through the Chiefs of Staff.
