GameStop Launches 2015 Holiday Layaway Program1 Oct, 2015 By: John Latchem
GameStop has launched its 2015 holiday layaway program, giving consumer the option through Dec. 20 to reserve and pay for such products as video game consoles, headsets and hard drives.
“The holidays have a tendency of sneaking up on people, and causing stress during a time meant for joy and sharing gifts with loved ones,” said Eric Bright, director of merchandising for GameStop. “We have listened to feedback from our customers and are starting layaway earlier than ever before this year. By offering customers the opportunity to reserve and pay for a product over time through our layaway program, GameStop is making shopping easier and more affordable for gift-givers this holiday season.”
Items eligible for layaway include consoles such as the Nintendo Wii U Mario Kart 8 bundle, Nintendo 3DS XL (black and red), Microsoft Xbox One Gears of War bundle (500Gb) and Sony PlayStation Vita (Wi-Fi); headsets such as the PS4/PS3 Sony Gold wireless, the PS4 Stealth 500P, the Xbox One Turtlebeach XO1 and the Xbox One Astro A40; and hard drives such as the PS4 1TB Solid State Hybrid and the Xbox One/Xbox 360 2TB portable hard drive.
Upcoming items on the list include the PlayStation 4 Uncharted bundle, the PlayStation Vita Aqua Blue, the Xbox One Holiday bundle and the Xbox One Elite console.
A $25 minimum deposit is required to start a layaway contract, and all layaways must be paid off and picked up at the store location where the original deposit was made by the end of operating hours on Dec. 24, 2015.
