It is a purchase I have been thinking about a long time.
The Chap has a tablet, but it is clunky and The Chap often gets fed up with its functionality.
I have been saving ready to pick one up. I had the money saved and ready to go for a couple of months. I just could not get to the final stage and actually buy it £399 is so much money to spend. I could not bring myself to spend the money.
I was at an impasse, my natural frugality was holding me back. That is not a bad thing, it gives you time to think. £400 is a lot of my money. The first thing with spending so much money is to be sure you really want to buy it
Friday night I went off to get food for the next two weeks at Tesco. As I was wandering round, I noticed a sign up offering 6 months interest free credit for electrical purchases over £389.
Getting a deal on iPads is impossible, Apple just do not allow it and they do not need to. It is brand that everyone wants.
So I checked that they would let me buy an IPad on this deal.
I still walked away to think about it.
Saturday I popped off after to breakfast and signed up.It's way I keep my capital and am paying no interest so six months at £65 per month.
I can pay the money back early if need be and the agreement is done via Barclays a reputable high street bank.
It's a good deal, plus I got £400 worth of stickers for Tesco's new promotion on saucepans and club card points too.
I also bought an own brand Tesco iPad case. So far just as good as Apple's case at less money.
I am pleased to keep my capital and spread the cost, plus if I do change my mind it is no problem to pay it back.
And finally, it's amazing!!! I have been playing on it all weekend and love it. I have also been face timing my family which is so easy.
Living frugally means you can make these decisions.
