Hi there.

I am looking to buy a LG KU990 from Vodafone.

Vodafone currently has a deal on where i can buy it for $550($549.00 to be exact) which is a saving of $450!

At the moment i currently dont have the money to buy it outright, but could defiently pay it off within 2 months..most likely 1 month.

Because the phone is on special would i be able to pay it off?
Also if i am able to pay it off would i have to pay the price it currently is ($550) or the normal RRP ($1,000).

Thanks for all your help :)

Thanks in advance

You would have to apply for finance I would imagine.

Most premium dealers (First or Digital Mobile) as well as the multi retailers (DSE, NLG etc.) offer finance.

They would probably have a minimum term of 6 months I would imagine.

Hey Jeff thanks heaps for your help :)

Yes i understand that. But the fact the phone is on special would that mean i cant pay it off or do normal rules still apply?

Call up a store and ask when the special prices finish.  Given its closing up to xmas time i am sure you have plenty of time to buy the phone @ that price.

Well, the rule of thumb usually is, if you cannot afford to pay it off in cash, then you are not able to afford the purchase.  This is what most financial planners would tell you.

Avoid interest-bearing contracts at all costs.

However finance companies prey on the stupid.

First Mobile and Digital Mobile partner with Finance Now and, provided you haven't killed anyone on the Baycorp credit check, you will be approved, whether the price is a promo or not. The minimum financed amount is either $200 or $300 but stores can impose any price minimum or refuse altogether. I caution that the finance rate is in the vicinity of 27% and only a clearly mad individual (or someone with a need for a KU990 that is truly life or death) would accept these terms.

This is where you use a credit card. If you dont have one, borrow one, if noone will let you use theirs, that just reflects on your standing finance wise and perhaps the phone is not what you should be getting right now.
