Interest rates really can put you off shopping for some of the more expensive or luxurious products, for fear of choking up a massive credit card bill.
Meet CIMB 0% Easy Pay, a flexible repayment plan that will spread your payment of that brand-new laptop into smaller bite-size pieces at zero interest, subject to terms and conditions.
What do I have to do?
Not much, simply let the cashier at the counter know that you would like to use this instalment plan and you’re all set.
Remember that the plan only works with CIMB’s list of participating merchants. Upon approval, you should see the first instalment in your next statement.
What is the catch?
Here's the tricky part, there is no grace or interest-free period when it comes to repaying your monthly instalments.
As long as you make your payment on time, every time, you can dodge being slapped with a hefty finance charge of 18% p.a. on your outstanding balance. Ouch!
