Telco's only do interest-free if you take up a monthly plan as well IIRC.

 

Noel Leeming's have 12 month's interest-free through GEM Visa

Hands down the 2 degrees mro finance is best. They don't lock you into contract prison like spark do and if you buy the note 9 through pb tech they will give you $200 of the purchase price and free Bluetooth headphones. I assume you know that Samsung are doing double value on the trade ins for the note 9?

Yea I thought 2degrees was the go to for this?

 

You just pay the phone off over 12/24 months. No interest. I didn't think they required a monthly plan either?.. other than the cost of the handset each month

Pb tech are still offering the $200 off if you buy through them and use their mro finance.

I tend to use 2degrees, you do need a monthly plan.  Got my note9 for $300 off and pre-order goodies.  Best thing is you can put it on finance and then ring them the next day and tell them you want to pay it off and they just invoice you the remaining amount in the next bill :P

aggh nice. hate getting stung for loan early repayments which is 99% of the time. not for me, for the Bros Mrs, they not wealthy but not poor just no cash. she has a new Project role which i think it could be useful for? Coordinator

 

Ive done everything in IT and I personally think Coordinators take a lot of the grunt work for proj managers. although its a dying job title.

 

most jobs hire me for say 1 role and its every damn role in the SDLC, cheeky buggas. Less so in Aus. Anyone else get more than they ask for often? hahaha

2 degrees is about $300 more expensive than on pricespy so the $200 brings it down to a fair price given ur getting interest free. but yes, it is on a plan, and if im not sure if its locked in.

I also think the Nokia 7 Plus could prob do the job if she doesnt use the Notes work tools. And its $500. Seems ok, 4 stars GSM arena. Photos as good as the nokia sirocco 8, or any phone using that imx sensor, or possibly slightly less due to lens quality maybe, but they look fine enough to me for $500.

I think you would only buy a note phone (which costs the price of a small car) if you really wanted a note phone.  Lots of other good options out there in the phablet space.

if she doesn't already have a note, she won't be using "notes work tools", would she?

 

agree with your assessment of the 7 plus. i thought i saw it for $599 at NL yesterday ($579 last week? at warehouse stationery). available cheaper at some online stores. unfortunately it's still $699 from spark if finance is required.

No one. Comes out of the account. No application process I'm aware of.

I mean Know you can buy it for $300 less via pricespy but do these parralel importers do finance? Unlikely,


Paralell imported work with a split payment company interest free. Details on website.
