Toys R Us Waives Layaway Fee

submitted on September 4, 2012 by siggy38 in "Stores / Merchants"

Toys R Us is making it easier for shoppers to use its layaway program ahead of the holiday season, waiving its service fee and minimum purchase requirement.

Toys“R”Us today announced that it will take its layaway program to a whole new level this holiday season, waiving the upfront service fee for all layaway orders created in its stores now through October 31. Offering a free, no minimum purchase layaway program early in the season allows customers to take full advantage of the flexible payment terms provided by layaway and give themselves until December 16 to pick up their orders.

A 20% down payment is required for layaway, and after October 31, there will be a $5 service fee for layaway orders. Payments may be made at any time at the store where the order was placed in the form of cash, check, credit card, debit card or gift card, but 50% of the total price of the order must be paid within 45 days and the order must be paid in full and picked up by December 16. In the event a customer cancels his or her order, there is a $10 charge, however, there are some state-specific exceptions regarding this fee. Please see for full program details.

    I got an email about this yesterday. They listed a ton of items including swing sets as possibilities for the holidays. I wonder if this means they won"t be discounting big ticket summer items this year. Cry
