DALLAS – Military shoppers can check everything off their wish lists early with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s fee-free layaway.

The Exchange is waiving its layaway service fee of $3 on toys, bikes, computers, laptops, tablets, iPads, notebooks, smartwatches and more when layaways are paid in full and picked up by close of business on Dec. 24.

“Getting a head start on holiday shopping is easy with the Exchange’s fee-free layaway,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “Shoppers can stock up on gifts for loved ones at military-exclusive pricing, always tax-free and without the layaway service fee.”

To place items on layaway, military shoppers must pay a deposit of 15% of the purchase price. Items in the 12 Weeks of Black Friday Deals are excluded from being placed on layaway. Shoppers can visit their local PX or BX customer service desk for more details.

In Hawaii, authorized patrons have two Exchanges they can shop at:

  • Hickam
  • Schofield Barracks

There is also one Marine Corps Exchange and one Navy Exchange on island.


Since 1895, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service (Exchange) has gone where Soldiers, Airmen, Guardians and their families go to improve the quality of their lives by providing valued goods and services at exclusive military pricing. The Exchange is the 54th-largest retailer in the United States. 100% of Exchange earnings support military communities. In the last 10 years, your Exchange benefit has provided $3.4 billion in earnings for critical military Quality-of-Life programs.
