Back to school technology on finance

Students returning to school or heading off to university this year find themselves in a unique situation. With the potential for many schools, colleges and higher education classes to take place online, back to school tech is likely to play a key role in this academic year.

 

Whether you are buying for yourself or your children, getting the right back to school technology to suit your needs doesn’t always come cheap. That’s why many consumers choose to purchase things like laptops, tablets and printers on finance so that they can spread the cost over several months.

 

There are many options when it comes to back to school finance, including putting technology on a credit card or taking out a personal loan. Unfortunately, many of these finance deals will see you pay high rates of interest on your borrowing.

 

The best way to spread the cost of your back to school technology, without incurring any additional payments, is by using an interest-free credit purchase plan, like DivideBuy.

 

We partner with a range of technology retailers, allowing you to spread the cost of your purchases over a period between 2 and 12 months. All you need to do is visit the retailer’s website, select the DivideBuy option when you purchase something and you’ll get an immediate decision.

 

Getting a school laptop on finance

Getting a new school or university laptop or tablet on 0% finance is easy with one of our retailers. There are a wide range of laptops that are suitable for students of all ages.

 

Before you buy one, it’s important to think about what the machine will be used for and buy one with appropriate specs. Some of the most important things to consider are RAM, which helps a computer run smoothly, storage space and screen size.

 

Unless you or your son or daughter are pursuing a specialist art and design course that requires specific software, however, most PCs available will be more than adequate for general school and university work, web surfing, emails and gaming.

 

Many retailers may even offer special back-to-school deals on laptops and other tech to help you start the term with the gear you need. So keep your eyes peeled!

 

Getting Apple products on finance

Interest-free credit deals are also available on a wide range of Apple products through many of our retailers. Apple products such as MacBooks and iPads use a different operating system to most laptops and some people find them easier to use – though this is largely down to personal preference.

 

One thing that can’t be denied is Apple’s stylish product design. Many people are willing to pay a little extra for the products just because of how they look, particularly if they already use an iPhone or another Apple device. Using Apple products in parallel makes it easy to sync content between the various different devices you use.

 

If you want to get the new school year off to the best possible start without stretching your finances, whether it’s an Apple computer or iPad, a PC or laptop, or any other piece of tech, visit one of our electronic retail partners for the best back-to-school interest-free credit deals.
