While many furniture stores in the Chicago and Indianapolis regions offer furniture financing options, it’s important to be aware that not all options are created equal. The most common forms of furniture payments include: credit card, store credit card, and cash. Read below to see the pros and cons of each.
Pay with cash: This is a good option if you are able to front the cash while making your purchase. Some people prefer to not have monthly payments, but the downside of paying in cash is that you are out a significant chunk of money that you can be using towards your other expenses. This is where using zero interest payment options to spread out your payments to several months is helpful because it does not affect your monthly budgeting as much as a one-time payment.
Pay with your credit card: If you have the credit limit to charge a furniture purchase on your credit card that may be a good option for you. Some people prefer to earn rewards points with their credit cards, but traditionally speaking, interest rates on payments can add up if you cannot pay the cost of your purchase that month.
Pay with a private furniture store credit card: Furniture store credit cards usually offer 0% interest financing for several months to a few years which you cannot usually get from a rewards credit card or debit card. For example, a store might offer a 12 month financing with 0% interest and no down payment on a minimum purchase price of $1,500. Meaning if you pay off your purchase in 12 months, you will not accrue any interest, which can be a great deal. The challenge is making sure you create a payment that you are comfortable with in order to pay often the amount in the long run.
