    Amazon spread the cost instalments

    Amazon spread the cost instalments 14th Nov 19 at 8:02 PM
    Do Amazon still do the 5 monthly instalments on new sim-free phones?

    I paid for my Mi8 over 5 months back in February but when I look now I can't find any sim free phones on Amazon offering to spread the cost anymore.

    It was a bit weird how they did it as it wasn't a credit agreement with a finance company or anything, it was just 5 equal payments taken each month from my debit card on file with Amazon.

    Yes they still do it but I think it's quite random which products they select. I've just done a search for Nokia 9 PureView at 345 outright and 5 instalments of 69 are offered on that phone.. can't see the offer for any Samsungs though.
    Also offered on the Motorola One Zoom @379 or 5 x 75.80

    Have a look at retailers offering PayPal such as Argos and Currys on black Friday. Then if you have a play acc you can get int free credit for 4 months for any item over 99.

    It must be random who they pick too as both those phones aren't giving me the option to pay over 5 months either.

    That's not really what I getting at. This Amazon thing isn't/wasn't a credit/finance agreement. They simply just take the payments from your debit/credit card on file, a recurring payment sort of thing. I have no desire to take out credit for a new phone or get one 'free' on a new contract.
