Kays/Additions/Littlewoods/Universal/ Marshall Ward Accounts

Found 17th Apr 2009
Hi, I've got a Kays account but they seem to be slightly dearer than the likes of Additions and Littlewoods Direct. I was just wondering if anyone knew if it is possible to transfer an account?

Ideally I would like to transfer to Additions Direct because I'm after a new TV and it's £200 cheaper on Additions/Litllewoods Direct than it is on Kays. How can the same company justify having different prices for exactly the same products? If I rang Kays up and asked them to do it at the cheaper price do you think I'd be in with a shout or should I not even bother wasting my time? Peoples experiences would be apprieciated.

I've tried that, for some reason it wont let me open an account with ANY of the other sites. I assumed it was because I was already a Kays customer.

hi, why don`t you just open an additions account just for the tv, you have already been cleared so it should be ok, thats what i do, pay it off seperately

It's because on Littlewoods Direct/Additions they don't do finance accounts. Full whack only.

don`t see why not, i have account with all four of them

well i have got stuff on 3 months interest free no probs, my main account is with empire,

i've had accounts on three of them at the same time so thats not the reason for refusal

Well, I'm going to give them a ring and see. Worth a try if it'll save me £200, if they can't do it I'm going to ask them to do it the £200 cheaper, if not, looks like I'm paying the extra :roll:

Great, I rang them a few hours ago and they refused to move my account although after explaining I was wanting to buy a TV priced at £1299 from Kays, but it's priced £1099 on some of their other sites she lowered the price, I also used the £50 off voucher so total price was £1049, pretty pleased with that!
