          That’s not a better deal & there’s definitely interest built into the price.

            As JJ said “interest free” – it’s already built into the R380/month.

            Nope, they said interest free.

          • Jedi JJ

            June 4, 2014 at 10:04

            It’s called reverse interest. You calculate beforehand the interest you, as a company, want to make out of the deal, work it into the monthly price and spread it out evenly so the price monthly never changes. There’s still interest.

            I know right? People are suckers for a “deal”. Like every time we used to quote a particular client & he always came back looking for a discount, so we used to add on R1k or whatnot to his original price, then give him that as a discount lol

          • Jedi JJ

            June 4, 2014 at 10:11

            And you believe them? If it’s true it’s only because of a technicality in the way it’s priced 😛

          • RinceofThis

            June 4, 2014 at 10:09

            Lol, it’s probably included. If you look at what you get, 2 controllers, 2 games… Extra controller is R800 (console comes with 1), 2 games at the average price of R700, that’s R2,200, plus the price of a console which is R6000 that makes R8,200, and what they are offering is 380×24 = 9120 then… Looks like interest included! Trololo!

          • HvR - THE Average GAmer

            June 4, 2014 at 10:34

            Do not think you should use the Takalot special deal n the calculation. So add R800 for console and R100 for controller you are close to the R9100.

            So the deal is you get a R9k loan interest free BUT you need a FNB cheques account as your main account for the 2 years to qualify through which they score a lot more than interest on R9k.

          • RinceofThis

            June 4, 2014 at 10:55

            Unless takealot have a special on controlleres they are listed as R799 as of today. Edit, and as we were comparing FNB to today’s deal, I was using today’s price for PS4.

          • Jedi JJ

            June 4, 2014 at 10:57

            Just remember that FNB doesn’t buy their stock at retail price.

          • RinceofThis

            June 4, 2014 at 10:58

            Oh absolutely. But as I have said about 5 times now 😛 We were comparing FNB’s deal to today’s takelot 😛

          • HvR - THE Average GAmer

            June 4, 2014 at 10:59

            well in this sub thread we were discussing FNB deal interest versus no interest

          • RinceofThis

            June 4, 2014 at 11:00

            Yip. And if we take into account the devaluation over 2 years the interest is hidden in there.

          • Jedi JJ

            June 4, 2014 at 10:59

            Yes. I know I know. Getting a bit off track here. The point I’m making is that the markups are different on those two. Way different. FNB is making way more money out of you.

          • HvR - THE Average GAmer

            June 4, 2014 at 11:00

            But through bank fees and not interest.

          • Jedi JJ

            June 4, 2014 at 11:02

            Amongst other things. I explained the interest thing somewhere in the comments. But as you say, by having that cheque account also makes up for a lot.

          • HvR - THE Average GAmer

            June 4, 2014 at 11:06

            If you look at all the deals they sell it too you at recommended retail price which you pay off in 24 months with no extra cost.

            So from the buyers side it looks like a interest free loan, you are not paying more.

            Of course they use the markup to offset the interest cost. Their big thing is to hook you into their product for a couple of years like the cellphone companies.

            The takealot deal is better if you have the funds now; if you are going to pay it off over a year or so probably better to go with the FNB deal.

          • DrKiller

            June 4, 2014 at 11:41

            I always live with the argument that one shouldn’t buy something if you can’t currently afford it… A house or a car is an exception, but a PS4 isn’t… Over 2 years, you wasted a lot of money for nothing 🙂

            June 4, 2014 at 11:45

            With you on that, in fact I’m not even going into debt for my next car. If you check the “initiation cost” and monthly costs on car repayments with the interest you just drive you old car for little longer then you save up for the new one in 2/3 the normal repayment time and normally score an extra 5% discount

          • DrKiller

            June 4, 2014 at 11:49

            I’ll let you know when I get there 😛 Although a car is understandable because it takes yyeeeaaaarrss of saving to get R200+k for a new car.
