This is not an advertisement for music retailer Sweetwater it’s just something I discovered on their website I thought I would share. I don’t know how long they have been offering to sell you products in this exact way but it sure makes noise toys LOOK affordable. Simply put, for a lot of items they will split the cost of the product into three payments. There is a $10 “processing” fee for doing things this way. Here’s and example: A Waldorf Blofeld is $699. You pay $243.33 today, $233.33 in 30 days and $233.33 in 60 days. Add to the fact there is free shipping and it’s definitely an evil temptation device. I’m good with not buying things until I have the entire amount in cash and never built up any kind of debt. I hope I didn’t just cause someone without good funds to buy something they can’t really afford. Musicians have a unique way of justifying gear purchases. It’s easy to spend money on your art and passion.
“Sweetwater’s Flexible Payment Plan is a convenient, interest-free way to buy gear now and stretch your purchase across three budget-friendly payments. Simply choose the “3 Easy Payments” option in your cart, and we’ll divide your purchase amount into three budget-friendly payments, billed to your current MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or American Express card. There is a $10 processing fee for using this service. It’s just another way we make shopping at Sweetwater easy and convenient!” – sweetwater.com
