Can pay in full straight away once the credit is applied which should happen before next statement.

Ah, the old "I'm a computer engineer so I know better than you" line.

I bought my Macbook with my own money to work on my business - I use After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Photoshop, and this (albeit a slightly more powerful model) is ideal. Sturdy, great battery, great screen, and still lightweight. Encountered no problems whatsoever.

I've had powerful Windows laptops that were powerful but had awful screens, weighed 3kg, and the battery was depleted after 2 years. The longevity of a Macbook has been pleasantly surprising.

He may be trolling but you are also trolling if you think windows laptops are 'plastic crap with hundreds of updates'.
The world you know would be very different without a Windows OS. It's literally used in every industry you can think of. Also windows OS is present in 68% of computers. MacOS in 13%. They are both great..just depends what you use them for.

Not a big fan of taking out a credit account, but just want to point out you get Microsoft office home for free, included in the £1271 price (and the discount price of course).

Yeah I know, I just don't like how this impacts my credit score. If I pay it off in full, I'm effectively trading credit score for a discount. Which might be fine for others, but I'll have to pass unfortunately.

How it paying it off in full negatively affecting your credit score ? Assuming you mean negative impact. Not arguing with you just curious as I plan to pay mine off with a few payments over the next couple of months

I bought an Android tablet in a similar way a few years back, at the time I thought it was just another way to encorage people to sign up to their website. But this credit account is more like a credit card, which explains the "buy now pay later" part of the deal (I had no clue back then ). Opening any credit account will negatively impact your credit score, maybe because companies assume you need to borrow money to get by? So once you get this credit account, it will appear on your credit report and be tracked going froward. If you do decide to remove it in the future (you can cancel it by contacting Very), I believe it could reduce your credit score again when it is taken off your credit report (don't quote me on this). So yeah, for me it was a lot of hassle and for the discount I got it wasn't really worth it.

However, I do think this is a good deal. Especially if you don't mind taking a slight hit to your credit score and then remember to cancel it later on to get rid of it from your credit report. Just be careful if you are planning to do something that will require a good credit score in the next 0 - 6 months (maybe even up to 24 months if you are thinking of buying a house).

I don't believe it works like that. I actually think having the available credit would increase your credit score? I am by no means an expert though. Applying for it will impact your credit score due to the credit search though.

You Squire are correct. It most certainly won’t negatively affect your credit score in the long run.

Like you explain it’s actually in the end a good thing that will increase your credit rating, once the small initial hit is over, from the taking out the credit.

I have the most horrific, longest, stupid credit history known to man. Thankfully never defaulted or missed payments but I know the system better then most. Been a Experian and Equifax credit twitcher for 7years plus, due to the need for me to keep swapping debts. Stupid I know before I get a Hotukdeals lecture on debt

Wrong bud, but at least you’re trying to help.

The opening will often but not always reduce your credit rating but in 90% of cases this will be very temporary. It will very quickly go back up and often above the older score.

Also you can’t remove a credit account off your record, unless it was opened in error, fraud or a mistake by the lender. It will just move into settled. However that’s a good thing and it will increase your score a lot of the time.

Here’s mine. I have a stupid amount of different credit forms. But 11 settled accounts

Applying intentionally would, yes, applying just to get a deal and not knowing it is a credit account would cause problems. Also applying to any credit account will reduce your credit score in the short term, if you use it and maintain less than 30% utilisation of the credit allocated to you, the yes it will then bring your credit score up. I strongly don't recommend this Very credit account for credit building, if you want to improve credit score look for credit building cards. If you want an everyday credit card to build up credit score and get some nice points/cashback this Very is not it either, get an Amex or something similar.

I'm not an expert in this area just been doing reading in this area recently, also won't want to start a conversation about credit cards. I shared my experience just so people are aware they are signing up to a credit account

I have opened a few credit accounts (clearly not as many as you ) and all of them costed me credit score. Remember, credit search (too many or too regularly) also reduces credit score, I'm talking about all of them combined.

By remove credit account, I meant closing it down, so it doesn't get taken into consideration in new credit reports. I can't imagine having too many non-active credit accounts is a good thing, if you use it, then sure it can improve your credit score if you do it sensibly.

I don't mean to start a conversation about credit score, just shared my experience since OP was asking. Don't mean to make this thread dull
Why not add that it’s the 128gb model. Which in my opinion is a waste of time on the Pro models, as you don’t buy them just to surf the net.

This is around the same price I bought a 2013 model, but that had 512gb. Which is still going strong 6 years later. Theirs not many Windows laptops that would last that long.

I read that as PC Gamer
Credit score means very little in the grand scheme of things when you apply for mortgages etc. Just like every credit card etc - providing you pay on time and full you should have no issues. If anything actively having credit and paying it back is a good thing.
Very good deal thanks for posting

I already had a very account, I have had it for years. Usually if I buy something I get the statement and pay it off. Credit score is fine
i used to be a windows user still am i'm using a surface pro to type this comment my main/work computer is a macbook pro bought in 2015 which is still going strong i thought 128gb wouldn't be enough but with icloud you don't need that much storage or at least i don't.

The Macbook just works no freezes no bugs when i do upgrade my main/work laptop it will be another macbook whether its worth £1200 is a valid point it is to me but for others who don't need such a stable reliable laptop then maybe not.
128gb no no no...
Student discount price at Apple is £1168 and you get beats studios ‘worth’ £299 (which you could sell for maybe half that amount). Makes this Very deal a great price!

Completely but only if they are hard searches. Not all places need to hard search you to give you an approval chance.

Tbh most will and should be temporary reductions. If you had poor credit to start with that’s very different but if you starting around 850 plus on Experian then you really should be back to that if not higher then 850 with in a few months of opening it.

I recently did an interest free credit card for a balance transfer and I lost 42 points from opening one. It then went up 17 a month later and then 25 the month after that. I suspect it will go up again.

Ps I’m really not proud of my credit, it’s been years of managing a rubbish situation I put myself
In when younger but it does mean I have seen first had so many credit changes. I’ve paid for Experian throughout and then got Equifax through my bank. Both are credit references agencies so can actually be trusted as they are the ones the meanders check with.

Tbh this I agree with, the 30% comment is also to some what. Credit is hard as it can differ from person to person but I try and keep open cleared credit cards for a while as having a high total available credit does often help, as with longer age of account. So I strategically leave some accounts open with a 0 balance and larger account age.

I personally wouldn’t bother with credit building cards. They are a con. They have insanely high interest rates and falsely claim you need to get one to build credit cough capital one cough.
So long as you have a mobile phone contract and maybe TV/internet, you will be able to get like a £600 card with a main provider like Nationwide, virgin, Barclays etc and they will have interest free or lower interest in general.
