The Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) is expanding its “TAKE IT HOME TODAY!” initiative, which puts items of necessity and convenience immediately into the hands of military families the world over. With “TAKE IT HOME TODAY!,” service members can now immediately enjoy furniture, major appliances, carpeting, mattresses and box springs, as well as select electronics.
The new plan, which was tested at select AAFES exchanges in the United States and overseas last year, includes benefits such as instant credit upon approval, no up front fees or down payment, a low interest rate and low monthly payments.
“Our tests made it clear that shoppers were excited about the opportunity to make a furniture, appliance or other large purchase and take the product home that very same day,” said AAFES Exchange Credit Program Business Analyst Colleen Youngblood. “With low interest rates and instant approval, military shoppers can now enjoy their purchase sooner.”
With a $299 minimum purchase, major appliances, 27 inch and larger TVs, carpeting, riding lawn mowers, large exercise equipment and spas may be purchased through the “TAKE IT HOME TODAY!” program. Accessories, including end tables, may also apply when they are purchased with a qualifying item.
“This program is perfectly targeted to meet the needs of today’s highly mobile military community, especially those members just starting military service or their families,” said AAFES’ Pacific Region Commander Col. Ann Borgmann. “Now members can immediately get the furnishings and appliances needed without incurring a large debt.”
“TAKE IT HOME TODAY!” is now available at all AAFES facilities that stock qualifying merchandise. Authorized exchange customers can contact their local exchange’s Store or General Manager for additional details.
