Let me tell you about a little known company called Affirm. I first discovered Affirm while shopping at Wayfair online for a large TV stand for the new 55″ flat screen that I ordered from Walmart online just a day or two prior.
During checkout, I was given the standard payment options plus a new one that I’d never seen before called Affirm. After doing a little research, I discovered that Affirm is a newer payment alternative that allows you to make purchases ranging from clothes to furniture and airline tickets without the use of a credit card.
Affirm offers easy payment plans of either 3, 6, or 12 months, with interest rates ranging from 10-30% depending on your level of credit. A minimum credit score of about 540 is usually enough to get you approved for at least a couple hundred dollars to get you started.
Currently, the company only reports to Experian and all transactions are listed as installment loans which will look great on your credit report if you’re rebuilding and happen to be lacking other forms of installment loans.
In the end, I decided to choose Affirm at checkout to purchase my TV stand with a purchase price of $225.71. I decided upon the 3-month plan which consisted of three equal payments of $79.02 including interest of $11.35, bringing my total purchase price to $237.06 out the door. I received my TV and stand on the same day and all was right in the world again!
