This period would vary according to the store but is generally anywhere between 12 months to 24 months. These loans are known as interest free loans or credit and can be used to purchase almost anything today in UK.

If the credit is used wisely, it can be quite beneficial. However, they can also cost you a lot if you are not careful. There are a few points which would have to be kept in mind if you are thinking about buying beds on credit.

Points to keep in mind

  1. The most important thing that you should remember when considering beds interest free credit is that the interest charges would apply after the free period comes to an end. These rates can be quite high so it is wise to pay the amount in full during the free period.
  2. In most cases, you would be required to make a monthly minimum payment each month. However, if you just pay the minimum amount required, the total amount of the loan would not be paid of in full before the end of the free period.
  3. After the end of the free period, interest would be applicable on the outstanding amount which would be calculated right from the purchase date and not just from the day the free period ended so you would have to be quite careful.
  4. Always read the documents carefully to see is there are any fees which would be charged from you.
  5. You might be offered free credit card along with your beds interest free credit. Be careful since cards can be a trap for those who are not careful.

The way to handle this type of credit is to pay the entire amount before the end of the interest free period. Do not pay the minimum amount each month but more in order to avoid any interest charges.

Also, always ensure that you read the fine print carefully and understand all the terms of the credit. Ask questions if you have any doubts before signing the papers. If you think that you would be unable to pay off the entire amount before the end of the free period then do not go for this option. Only purchase an item if you really need it and not just because it is available on interest free credit. Impulsive buying will always lead to plenty of debts which you would not be able to pay off.
