I HATE Cash Converters

Found 3rd Apr 2010
Went into Cash Converters yesterday to price up a PS3 ... they had 2 on offer .. a 120GB Slim for £179.99 or a 250GB Slim for £289.99 ... i said to the guy in the shop thats steep as they only £269 in Blockbusters NEW .. then i read the label on it again ... £289.99 was for 250GB Slim PS3 .. 5 Games .. and a 22" LCD Combi/DVD player .. well me been the Bargain Hunter said yes please.. but i dont get paid for 2 weeks .. so i said i would pay the £60 deposit and pay rest in 2 weeks ..

Went to the till and he said he couldnt get the Computer to lay it away .. so unless i paid the full £289.99 theres nothing he can do as the only person to overwrite the Computer is the area manager and hes not in until Tuesday .. so i had to walk away hoping i could still lay it away on Tuesday ...

Call into store again today to see if any new Blu Rays / Games had come in .. looked in the display at the offer of the PS3 and .... PS3 + LCD + 5 GAMES .. £329.99 ....

i asked wtf was goin on to the lad i spoke to yesterday and he said head office told him they had to put the price up ...

Lets just say am f'd off now ... he said that the 120GB was still available but i said after that kick in the teeth i wouldnt buy one from them at all now ..

RANT OVER ...

So the lesson is always read the lable and don't point mistakes out to the staff
The lesson is, the next time you see a bargain, use a credit card, don't wait.

Erm, no. In the wrong hands it can be lethal. If you are sensible enough to take advantage of the offers (such as interest free for 12 months) then it is an interest free loan as long as you are able to pay it off within 12 months.
credit cards shouldnt be used by people who are on benefits and lifes ambitions are to appear on jeremy kyle.

as long as u pay them off in one go etc they are fine
OK i know now it was my loss ... and iam also inpatient i should way until i recieve my brass before i go looking for bargains .. but its annoying that it said lay away and they say no then they jack up the price ... anyway lesson learnt .. not hunting for a PS3 now until i have the money in hand ..

Thanks for your Posts Guys n Gals ..

Did I say that ... :roll:

imo on these types of things I would much prefer to buy it outright, if you cant afford to spend 300 quid outright, then maybe you shouldnt be thinking of buying it in the first place, and keep your money for different priorities
Cash Converters stores have the stench of humanity...

Did I say that ... :roll:



Then where did the Benefits bit come from then .. no one said anything about them .. all i said is that i cut mine up after paying it off .. and cos iam inpatient i tent to buy too many bargains and my card got too full too quick ... took me a year to pay it off and after i did it was destroyed .. as simon says they are evil .. lol

Well your right there .. i have now learnt my lesson to only go looking for things when i have the money in hand .. so will wait now until i get paid out .. they rekon 2 weeks but it was insurance work so could be anything upto 30 days ..

they are not evil if you have self control and know how to use them properly, you evidently didnt, but you learnt your lesson.
