Does this work on iMacs?

I don't think so. Just macbook range.
Works on all Macs, so does include iMa
I assume you can pay this off as soon as it has arrived and close the account?

Exactly and if you where vat registered and could claim the VAT back you could get a £2700 laptop for around £1500. Obviously n/a to all but great deal for anyone in that position

If you click on any iMac the offer doesn't show so just macbooks I think.
Website seems to indicate works on all MACs
Very failed to honour a very similar deal a good while back, despite my complaints (numerous calls) and evidence they just ignored me !!. No longer a customer and won't be using them ever again. Just be warned in case they pull a similar stunt.
Applied for an account and only got a £750 limit, you must have the full amount available in your Very account to get the offer.

considering this myself now purely because of this.
Also, do you have to be a new customer ???? is the 20% applied at checkout or a redemption like the last apple promo they did (which took a month to show on the account)

Very did exactly the same to me. Failed to honour the promotion despite me receiving a letter from them, told me to prove it by sending them a copy of the letter, then just ignored me. Even my recorded letter to head office was ignored. Will never shop with them again.

Have taken.
I've gone for the iMac....I have £1500 credit limit in my account but not sure why it is more than others. Regarding the Office 365, I don't believe it's free...but if the 20% comes off for this as well then it makes it £40 - which got so much heat on here as a deal. I've gone for this as well.
Could someone confirm for me... the cheapest iMac i5 8gb appears to be about retail price atm, Am I right? so -20% is a steal I guess.

It looks as though Very are offering this £100 cheaper than Apple BEFORE the 20% off. Yes a steal if they honour it. I've ordered it as mentioned above but I had to phone them as I wasn't set up for buy now pay later. Make sure this is activated as you could get stung. Mine is arriving tomorrow! Only ordered at 8am!

Yep that means you can't do it. You must have a limit that covers the entire cost.

Also when the credit is applied is the 20% back only to be used on another Very purchase?

No it can be used to pay off of your balance. I bought a macbook £1000 so when when the 20% is applied it will bring it down to £800 which I will then pay off in full.

I think you can 'over pay the account' like with credit card limit, so you can purchase the £750+ item. I have a debit balance of +£4 as I overpaid the Sonos offer. Worked without problems in my case.
So be warned very is a rubbish company and infact awful when it comes to customer service and they hardly honour deals and discount. There call centre staff are african based who cannot understand a word in english and leaves your furustrated.

I had absolutely no problem with them on my recent iPhone 7 purchase. The 20% refund went into my account the day before they said it would, no problems at all.

Admittedly their call centre is a bit w@nky when you ring them to check delivery times etc, but other than that it's been an absolutely breeze to buy and settle my credit with them.
I also had no problem at all with getting £180 back on an iPad Pro. Just a shame none of the iMacs available appear to have i7 processors or I'd probably go for one.
I think they are limiting new accounts to a £750 max spend so they can't take part in this offer. Great if you already have an account as the new 13 inch macbook with touchbar is £50 cheaper than Currys.

so it would appear the whole process is a bit pointless .... or is it only new customers who are eligable ???
Absolute scum bags that will rip you off anyway. They don't even honour their buy now pay later 0% most of the time. They have loads of tricks. Beware

Because they're stupidly overpriced and repair cost out of warranty is near replacement cost

No it's only possible if you have an account with a spend limit that will accommodate the price of the mac you want. I've used them before with similar buy now pay later and get X% off and they've always been good.
Cracking deal, needed a new MacBook as I broke the screen on my 2013 model.

Just created a new account and got £3k limit, bought the 15" MacBook Pro for £2.7k on BNPL. Quidco tracked at £45 also.

Just hope I get the 20% back now!

A Very offer is like waiting for a Southern train or attending a Who concert in the 60s - it might happen as planned but there's a fair chance it won't.

This is a significant enough amount of money to risk losing, with the worse than futile experience of calling the Very customer service centre, that I'm not going to risk it.

That said, there are some good offers here although if you can snag the 10% off from Apple (student discount) and wait for the UK Beats headphone offer (assuming it will come), then sell the headphones and buy Apple Care on the student offer, that may turn out to be a better deal.


I'm looking to buy a 2017 iMac. Has anybody purchased one using this offer? The 20% option doesn't show on the iMacs from what I can see.
I've just ordered a 2017 MacBook Pro 13 / 8 / 256, which should hopefully arrive by Tuesday. For what it's worth, I've used the same kind of credit back offer to buy an iPad Pro and an iPad mini 4 from very in the past, and I've never had any issues. Slightly worrying to see bad experiences reported by other people though.

I can confirm that iMac's are included. I ordered one and phoned them for peace of mind.

Are you on the Flat rate VAT scheme? Ordinarily you can't claim back the VAT if so, but I think there is a special rule if the expenditure is >£2k - which this is pre-discount
