Any place to get a 5DII kit with financing?

Dell.com but you will regret it (the happiest day was the day I sent my last payment to them!)

My experience with Dell is the exact opposite. Great service and low interest rate. Got my 50D kit from them a couple years ago.
I got 2x 5D Mark II from Best Buy. They had it in stock, used the 12% off coupon and got 18 months to pay it off with no interest.

I was going to say check with Best Buy. But, personally, there are only 3 things that a person should go into debt when buying: car, home, college. Anything else isn't worth going in debt over. But, that is just my 2cents.

If you can pay it off in 3 months, just save for 3 months. That's nothing.

bw!That is a really good workaround, thanks for posting.

I have great credit, and still can't get enough credit through Amazon for a 5D2 kit. :confused: Waaaaah.

I know this because like you, i have excellent credit and couldn't get enough to finance the kit. WHen asked why they said i didn't have a long enough credit history with them and they recommended i do this. Simple enough since i planed on paying it off in 2 payments anyways.

Good luck and ENJOY!!!

If you can pay it off at any time, and are given 0% financing, you owuld be foolish to not take it and keep your assets liquid... Not overextending yourself, just being smart and staying solvent.

I appreciate the friendly advice guys, but that's not what I was posting for.

Thanks Vitacura, I'll look into BB.

See about getting a Newegg Preferred account, zero interest for a year. Found my 5D2 there when nobody else had any in stock.

Can't you get a credit card if you need it now? Just a regular Visa or Discover or whatever?

Most stores have terrible financing terms. Those 0% interest offers are extended because if you fail to pay it off within the given time frame (generally 9-12 months), they tack on all the interest you would have accrued (at 24% likely) for the year. 2/3 of people don't pay it off in time, that's why they are actually quite profitable for the store. Everyone else more than makes up for the few people that do remember to pay it off in time. Your $3000 interest free loan will have $700+ in interest tacked on to the balance if you owe even one dollar on day 366.

Calumet also has a CC and they lease with a buyout option if you have to go that route.

I would take the house and car off that list. They are liabilities :)
