HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

With the holiday shopping season approaching, layaway may be a great option for knocking down your Christmas gift list.

There are even travel packages offering a payment plan through layaway.

But some layaway plans can have fees attached that you need to look out for. Although it may be a viable option for you - be sure to read the fine print.

"What happens if you change your mind - are you going to be able to get a refund? Just like with a regular purchase, make sure you know what happens if you don't pay on time," advised Michele Mason with the Better Business Bureau.

Layaway can be a great tool to help you plan now and pay as you go.

Just make sure you know what type of agreement you are making and the terms and conditions are agreeable.
