'Pay weekly' = paying way, way,way over the odds because you can't afford to pay outright.

It's much better to save up and make do than paying someone way over the odds because you don't have the cash to pay outright.

(BTW before anyone chirps up - I understand the attraction of paying weekly and understand why companies offer this service but I still think it's much better to save up and pay for something outright than spending much, much more for the 'convenience' of getting something immediately)

I always prefer to save up rather than pay over the odds in interest, I will only ever buy stuff on credit with 0%apr.

However in the world these days ppl cant wait and dont mind pilling everything on high apr credit, and that is how loads of people end up in masses of debt.

for goodness sake originally asked for is a number or company name and only 1 person has been helpful enough the others have nothing to do with giving the information that has been requested
its not about getting into debt or not being able to afford things
people on here obviously have nothing better to do with their time than add their personal opinions if you cant pass on relevant information please move on

Agreed.

If someone wants pay 150% extra of course that's just fine

Instead of sanctimoniously lecturing her how about you loan her the money interest free?

Or you're taking the chance to wag your finger and pompously bray about how people should do what you do. How do you know she isn't going to pay for them outright?

ZZZZZ. Anyway, the point I was trying to make was that it's better to save up if you don't have the money to pay right away, not take out loans (interest free or not).

If anyone wants to waste ££££s in interest for something they really 'need' 'immediately' that's just fine, go right ahead

Don't know about you but blinds and curtains are fairly immediate items in my world.

I'm not ok with the world and his wife being able to observe my activities when i'm trying to relax at home after a hard day. Not that I cavort around naked doing unspeakable things to oven ready chickens while wearing a gasmask and an oven glove on my foot you understand but I do value a little privacy.

Can't believe how much people pay for these things, when you can go buy them for about £25 from Dunelm and fit them yourself.
