This is how people get themselves into financial difficulties.They'll be a newer phone in 12 months or less in any case.



It's a dangerous game telling other people how to spend their money, it's usually just best to mind your own business and not worry about anyone else's.

Not bad deal if you can afford it. Personally I am holding out for 3 months with my note 4.
I think after 3 months we can look at more affordable plans (you are paying the flagship premium). Looking for value and I think current price does not justify value.

I gave it heat but not for me.

What is it with people getting all protective about their phones, and critical of other brands?
If you're happy with your Apple / Samsung / LG / generic Chinese knock-off then well done... no one else cares.

Link initially took me to page with insurance included.
Now when I click insurance is £99.

Sounds but but you don't own the phone do you, deal is you give one handset back and upgrade or have I got it wrong - terrible deal if you give it back.

Other issue is the T&C state upgrade is not guaranteed and they can withdraw that at any time ???

OP's deal is for 6, 12, 18 or 24 months interest free credit through paypal credit.

You are referring to Samsung upgrade programme which is completely different.

Nope thats the upgrade plan you are looking at. This is just simple finiance purchase via Paypal credit. You own the phone from day one, albeit you will have a debt a with paypal (essentially a virtual credit card).

I saw the option but from what I know, taking out finance lowers credit score? or am I wrong? Either way I've already pre ordered via bank transfer so it's not too important, I'm not familiar with finance/loans I was just taught to use cash lol...

That's the upgrade program, this is just a straight purchase with 0% finance off paypal.

Taking finance wont lower your credit rating. If paid on time over the term it will increase it in the long run.

Something like this is actually good for someone with limited credit history who wants to build on it.

I buy something on short term credit every couple of years. Settled accounts drop off after 6 years so its always good to have one to replace them.

Not saying this is a bad deal but (It's a lot to fork out in 1 go for a phone so can understand why people would want to use this)
But How is this not cold when it is the full RRP but deals for the same phone £50 cheaper are going cold? or have the apple fan boys just not seen this deal yet? lol

Anyone who gets work perks thinking of buying this check them out first, got mine for £627

Because it enables people to get a shiny new phone without having to spend over 600 quid in one go:).

Ummm what? You must be blind not to see iPhone deals getting voted to -500. This is a different deal than $50 off. This allows to pay off the device interest free in up to 24 months.

Did this offer last year with the S7 Edge 12months interest free. Heat added.
The phone will go down in price in a few months but this is great for getting the new phone as soon as its out spreading the cost interest free.
As tempting as it is im going to stick with my S7edge (unless this deal gets the better of me like it did last time)

Is anyone getting the Option when going through the PayPal Credit Option where It's not allowing you to Select the PayPal Credit Option on the PayPal Checkout? We've logged in and out so many times now and we Just can't get it to work. It's asking us to Pay the Final Amount outright on Card at £689.00 etc

Worked for me.

Chose 6 month option, transfered to paypal to apply, got credit limit then transfered back to samsung to confirm order. At final stage I think it showed full amount but somehere on page said paypal credit.
Page crashed while waiting for confirmation but came through by email.

Turns out there some sort of issue with PayPal Credit on my partners account. It won't let you select the Option on the Final Checkout to Change Funding Source to PayPal Credit. The Option just simply isnt there. I tested it on my own paypal and the option appears fine as PayPal Credit. Calling PayPal to Resolve it as this wasn't working the other day either.

Just tried it on my laptop instead of phone and works ok....

Highly priced. Same spec phones are selling 1/2 of the price. Cold.

Cancel and re-order, they do not take payments until release date

Cheers just ordered with the £20 off voucher but I selected the 24 month option on the Samsung page but PayPal only offered 4 months 0% for some reason.

There is also a £30 off voucher for orders over £500 -SAMSUNGSAVE30

Thanks

those codes didn't work for me (:

Still think a conventional sub £45 contract is better especially those taking a 24 1mth Finance deal. You pay what £33 odd a month for the phone then have to go do some cashback SIM only deal for say £10. Just hassle and at the moment even Vodapoo do 24Gb.

Order placed but both voucher codes did not work for me, ah well. Now to search for a good sim only deal.

Will I be able to take the s8+ on flights as per the new rules ?

Is there more than one Perk/Business offer company for Samsung? My employer is part of the Samsung EPP, but it's not giving me any discount on the RRP for either of the phones. The best I could manage through work perks would be an 8% saving if I waited and bought it outright from Currys/Argos after release.

Make sure you use caps

"We're sorry, but PayPal Credit isn't available for this purchase". Doh!

It is a finance deal, even if its 0% interest, and will result as a hard search on your credit file. It may have a small effect, though if you have applied for other credit recently, including switching banks, switching utilities (for some companies), or switched mobile providers (some companies) you may already have recent hard searches and so it would have a bigger effect. However your score is only seen by you and not by those you want credit from.
