Go with Apple themselves or get a credit card with interest free on purchases.

Inb4 someone suggests you save up first.

Thought about it but decided not to post

Wow...the price on that EmpireStore is well expensive

Get it on Apple instead

Sign up to Very.co.uk and get 10% off the first purchase, plus quidco.

Empirestore and Very are the same, aren't they ?

They are from the same group, but I dont know the pricing structure of Empire, Littlewoods has a higher pricing than Very and they are the same, I only say very because I think they are the most reasonable when it comes to product pricing.

go with apple

Stupid comment, live in the real world!! - Some people get paid monthly, so they pay for things monthly. People don't have to save up all the time any more.

Sometime you have to buy on Credit card (Extra protection), and repay on time, your credit rating will be improved a lot.

You mean keep them in business.

There are 2 schools of thoughts with credit card. Alot of people associate it with debt which isn't wrong but they need to understand that not all people who have credit cards build up debt.

I have an air miles card. I buy everything on it, shopping, petrol, car insurance etc etc. Soon adds up and about every 2 years me and the missus get a paid for flight to Australia. Got to be strict but works for us!

I just think buying through Very is a good deal you know

Buy a Mac Mini at Very for £629

First customer, 10% off, bring it down to £566

Quidco at 8%, bring it down to £521.

And Very offers Buy Now Pay Later, as long as you can pay before end of March, free interest.

£521 ? Even cheaper than HE store.

I know as Apple finance provided by Barclays and I googled it and seem it is quite hard to obtain credit from them.

£521 at Very ?
