This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I’m running the Apple deal gauntlet with this one. But I think this is a cracking deal if you’re in the market for a new iMac.

Price you pay after discount: £1255.20

It’s a brand new 27 inch iMac (2019 model) which retails at £1749 (Apple Store).

Very’s starting price of £1569 is already the most competitive in the market. But if bought on an interest free 12 month buy now, pay later deal, they’ll give you 20% back as a credit on your account. Therefore taking the price down further by an additional £300+.

I’ve used the credit back deal several times and have always found Very are reliable and true to their word.

Here’s the spec:

Apple IMac (2019) 27-Inch With Retina 5K Display, 3.0GHz 6-Core 8th-Generation Intel® Core™ I5 Processor, 1TB Fusion Drive With Optional MS Office 365 Home - Silver
iMac now comes packed with the latest processors, faster memory, and powerful graphics. And it has the brightest, most vibrant Retina display on a Mac. It’s the total package—powered up.

27-inch (diagonal) 5120-by-2880 Retina 5K display
Stunning 5mm thin design
6-core 8th-generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor
Radeon Pro graphics processor
Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports
802.11ac Wi-Fi
Magic Mouse 2
Magic Keyboard
macOS Mojave, inspired by pros but designed for everyone, with Dark Mode, Stacks, easier screenshots, useful built-in apps, and more

I don't see how anyone can pay over £1.5k for a computer without an SSD in this day and age. Absolutely abysmal spec for the price.

And I say that having bought multiple MacBooks within the last 2-3 years alone.
Even accounting for the £700 for a 5K monitor, you're still paying £800 for an i5, 8gb of ram and no pure SSD storage.

Granted it's cheaper than directly from Apple, but it's still a rip off.
A lot of people need to understand how Very works, some of the stories you read on here it is obvious people have been stung for not understanding the whole process. Read up on BNPL, Take 3 (doesn’t matter for this deal) and interest charges etc. This deal is fine if you know what you are doing. Heat added.

Hmmm. Thank god have the option of going to Apple if something goes wrong. Because Very is scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to customer service.

So basically it’s still £1500 which you need to pay, and they give you a £300 voucher you can only use in their store? Still not too bad!

Nope. 20% on your final statement. Discount not credit.

After further checking you need to open an account, they give you a £3k credit limit which is open ended. So even if I pay off in full next month I will still have a £3k credit on my credit check report. No ideal if you need to apply for a mortgage.
Discounted Apple products are pretty rare these days. I got an iPhone 7 at a brilliant price from Very years ago using a similar deal. No issues on the discount which was credited to the account bang on time.

The only thing is you MUST be able to repay the full amount by the deadline religiously or face really extortionate interest rates. At the time of my iPhone 7 purchase this was over 40% APR on a compound basis from the date of purchase which is applied immediately even if you are a day overdue. In which case any savings are blown out of the water...Needless to say I made sure it was paid off in good time.

This is where Very make their money.

However this is a super hot deal for those who are seeking the iMac. I recommend it wholeheartedly being the owner of a Mid 2012 model which is still going strong. By the way my Wife still uses the iPhone 7 which is also going strong.

This deal is ONLY for those with the financial capacity to pay off the full amount within the interest free timescale. Lots of heat.

Unless your taking a mortgage it doesn't matter and it probably helps if you never took out large credit before if you make sure you pay on time always.
I cannot see option BNPL 12 momths

Code does not work
m I doing anything wrong ?

Pay it off straight away. Unless you’re super close to what you need to borrow for your mortgage, your credit rating should be fine.

27" started at £1749 in 2014 - you must have got a special deal on it or something?
Great price for a lovely bit of kit.
A quick look at this and it looks like £1000 of monitor and £200 PC? (and at a guess £300 apple tax?)

Deffo not, it was from the Apple shop them self’s, all I can think it was around July so they may have been shifting old stock ready for the new model. But yeh, £1100 in 2014 for a 27”

How does this work ?
I'm still using my mid 2011 27" iMac which is, even now, worth around £400! Plus I have this model which is great.
It's a good deal for a iMac, I use the same iMac at work. You only thing is I'm really not sold on these fusion hard drives. I use it for photoshop and under a bit of strain the iMac really slows down. Just something to consider.
All computers do

You can decrease the limit yourself.

Decent deal on a terribly overpriced product.

Voted hot but I'd pass on this even if I was looking for a computer myself.

That will be 3k credit limit, which has no effect on your rating, in fact it's good that you have some credit and that you're paying off on time. Again 3k is only the amount you can borrow (credit limit) your balance will be how much you have spent. It will be bad for your credit score if you spend the 3k (that means you are desperate for credit) miss payment (inability to pay) or worse, somehow go over the limit.

To be honest that can apply to a lot of things, if you are just about to apply for a mortgage you are probably best not to do anything unusual with your finances like a larger cash purchase or taking out a new phone contract. Probably neither is large enough to make a difference but best to play it safe. The rest of the time having credit and managing responsibly is good for your credit rating.

Greed overtook innovation
I’m confused with all the negative credit rating “hit” comments
Why would an open credit limit of £3000 be negative? Especially when being paid properly?
Especially when paid off I would have thought this would have been positive rating.
As I approached the end of my mortgage I kept it going so it keeps my positive rating
Am I being naive here?

So here’s someone that has no idea how credit checks work. Be careful with your mortgage, you might accidentally apply for a banana.
Good deal for an iMac but 95% of people are better off just buying a 256gb ssd/8gb ram macbook pro and docking it with a 27 inch monitor (can easily get a 4k monitor for less than £200 nowadays) all for the same price. Been doing this since the type-c macbook pros came out and the user experience is identical to using an iMac, plus the obvious benefit of a laptop and desktop in one

usually paying off straight away has a penalty from these hire purchase companies.
What the hell is a fusion drive, can it do warp factor 5?
I bought this for £1199 from John Lewis back in the summer when on offer. I also purchased a Samsung T5 external SSD for £79 from Amazon Italy (it was posted by Amazon UK ).I run the iMac from the ssd and use the fusion drive for Time Machine.
It all works fine and as far as I am concerned , fast.
