The Return of the Holiday Layaway

 

GreenPath reminds shoppers of an alternative to using credit this holiday season;
Provides tips on using layaway

GreenPath Debt SolutionsFarmington Hills, MI – Layaway may sound like an old-school concept, especially in today’s “buy now, pay later” society. But the idea of setting aside products to pay for gradually is making a comeback, and is a great alternative to using credit cards this upcoming holiday season.

Layaway may be the answer for those who can’t afford to pay all at once or who simply want to avoid using credit cards this holiday season. An added benefit is that layaway helps keep prying eyes from gifts and presents before the big holiday celebration. «Read the rest of this article»
