The holiday season is fast approaching, and this means you’d better be tightening that wallet for Christmas gifts for all the gamers in your life. GameStop knows this all too well, and they’ve already implemented their layaway program and have it up and running early this year. This is one way to ensure you can get some of those more expensive gifts out of the way while you have time to do so.
With the arrival of the Kinect and PS3 Move not so long ago, GameStop came up with a new program that would allow customers to put systems on layaway so that they can be paid for over time. From now until December 18th (tentatively), customers can come into their local GameStop store and choose from a variety of systems to put on layaway until they are paid off in full. Just $25 down will guarantee you a system, whether it be a new Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii, and you’ll have until the deadline to get it completely paid off.
There’s no pressure, and you can come pay however much you want across the span of time it’s in the program. This way, you can spread the price out over installments instead of paying a huge chunk of money up front for your system. To answer your brimming questions, only systems can be put on layaway. Games and accessories are excluded from the program. Still, it’s a nice way to get a head start on that Christmas list.
