    So I decided to sign up for this service mainly for pre-orders because sometimes it just happens that something comes out and I'm strapped until I get paid (I usually try to pay upfront in advance).

    I just want to know if anybody has any experience with this and if theres anything good or bad I should know about. It says no payments and no interest for up to 6 months but the interest made my eyes bleed when I saw it, 19.99% interest if your late on a payment or if you go past your 6 months without paying the item off (I think thats how it works but I'm not to familiar with it).

    Any one have any experience with it?

    I'd avoid it like the plague if I were you. I think I've heard there are hidden fees.

    I wouldn't touch it, no way.

    I looked into it a while ago and came up with the conclusion that it wasn't a good thing for me to try. I'm sure things have changed since then... Also you have to pass a credit check I believe.

    Hahah, that sounds like one of those "Don't try this" adverts that WWE guys do.

    Get a Discover card.

    Cash back on everything, bonus stuff changes every 3 mths for 5% back.

    Also when u call with an issue, u get someone in the USA who speaks English and u dont have to laugh at their accent with "American sounding name".

    They jump thru hoops for me when even I have an issue(do use the shit out of the card $$$$ wise) so your methods may vary.

    Believe me when I say that, because its true. Paypal has screwed around with my money so many times over the past few weeks its not even funny. The story is way too long, the moral of the story is to make sure your credit card doesn't have a block on it for online transactions!
