TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. – The Army and Air Force Exchange Service at Travis Air Force Base, California, is helping military families go back to school while sticking to a budget by extending its layaway program to include computers and tablets needed to succeed in the classroom.
From July 1 to Aug. 31, Airmen and other military shoppers can use layaway at the Travis AFB Exchange to hold computers, notebooks, tablets and iPads—items that are not typically eligible for the layaway program.
“Using up-to-date technology is vital to succeeding in the classroom,” said Phonda Bishop, Exchange manager. “The extended layaway program helps parents and students manage their budget for back-to-school expenses.”
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 Exchange customer service for complete details.
