GameStop Kicks-Off the Holiday Season with No Fee Layaway Program

September 4, 2019

GRAPEVINE, Texas, Sept. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- It’s the most wonderful time of the year (well almost) and GameStop is helping customers get ready for the holidays by launching its annual no fee layaway program, starting now through December 11.

“The holiday shopping season just got easier for customers looking to add value and convenience in their wallet – and we believe our layaway program offers flexibility and peace of mind,” said Eric Bright, vice president of merchandising for GameStop.  

Customers can reserve the most popular video game console systems and a select quantity of virtual reality headsets by making a $25 minimum deposit to start the layaway process. There are no fees or penalties associated with layaway reservations and customers can receive a full refund at any time.

Here are five reasons to consider GameStop’s Layaway Program:

  1. No fee.  There is no hidden fee to participate. Customers can simply buy now and pay later with no financial risk involved.
  2. Availability. By reserving a popular video game system or virtual reality headset on layaway now, guarantees customers will have merchandise for the holidays.
  3. Refundable Deposits. Unlike other retailers, your layaway deposits are refundable at any time.
  4. No interest charges. Whether you own plastic or not, our layaway program is an alternative to paying interest charges on credit cards, which means more dollars in your pocket for savings or to spend.
  5. Easy as 1, 2, 3. Layaway program does not conduct income or credit checks before approval. To qualify for layaway, you simply need proof of identification showing that you are at least 18 years of age and a $25 down payment. Trades may be accepted as a form payment.
