Where to buy a Xbox One on finance and pay 0% interest

By Tom Johnson | | 8653 |

Home of the world’s most powerful console, the Xbox One eco-system is a great place to play. Not only is it the home of such celebrated series as Gears of War, Forza Horizon and Halo, but offers players access to amazing money-saving subscription services like Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Gold. The problem comes from how certain consoles, particularly the Xbox One X, can reach price levels as high as £400.

So to help you understand what your options are, we’ve put together this concise guide explaining the various Xbox One finance plans available in the UK.

Interest free Xbox One finance

Xbox One 0% Interest

Often considered the best option, a 0% interest Xbox One finance plan will allow you to spread the cost of your purchase without paying a single lick of interest. The length of time in which you can take advantage of accruing no interest will vary from retailer to retailer, but most opt to offer it over either 6 or 12 months. Let’s take a look at the top UK retailers offering interest free finance deals for new Xbox One consoles:

Argos interest free Xbox One deals. Argos’ interest free credit is offered up to a period of 12 months with no additional cost, letting you pay it back as and when it suits you. All you need to do is sign up for an Argos card, and ensure you meet the minimum monthly repayment in order to avoid paying interest. As well as this, shopping from Argos has plenty of benefits, not least a huge network of shops (including Argos and Sainsbury’s) from which you can click and collect your order with minimal fuss. We track hundreds of prices daily here at Console Deals, and Argos are consistently one of the best retailers for Xbox One deals, making them an excellent overall choice.

    Buy now pay later Xbox One finance

    Xbox One Buy Now Pay Later

    You can buy a new Xbox One without any upfront cost, and pay for it later from a number of retailers. Popular retailers offering Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) plans include AO.com, Argos, GAME, and MusicMagpie. You will not be charged any interest as long as you settle your account within the time you are given. This ranges from as little as four months, to a whole year – e.g. you may get 12 months to pay for your new Xbox One console from AO.com. We’ve not come across any retailers offering BNPL terms longer than 12 months.

    Pay monthly Xbox One finance

    If for whatever reason your Xbox One of choice isn’t available at a retailer that offers 0% finance, the rule of thumb is to always pay it off as soon as possible. Do that, and you’ll accrue the least amount of interest possible. A pay monthly plan still allows you to spread the cost, but you’re paying extra for the privilege.

    One of the most trusted retailers that offers pay monthly Xbox One plans is Currys PC World where you can buy an Xbox One X with no deposit to pay, at an interest rate of 24.9% (APR variable representative). You choose the payment term (months) that suits you and pay off your Xbox One purchase early at no extra cost.

You can choose to pay off the Xbox One in as little as 6 months, or take 24 months. The longer the payment period, the more interest you will accrue.

    Pay weekly Xbox One finance

    When looking to purchase an Xbox One as part of a pay weekly finance plan, bear in mind that the same rule applies: pay as soon as possible. Do this and you’ll accrue the least amount of interest possible. Paying weekly makes it less likely that you’ll miss any instalments as they occur more frequently.

    You have two options. You can buy an Xbox One from Argos and pay for it weekly. On the face of it, what Argos offers you isn’t a pay weekly plan per se, but the online and physical storefront simply allows you to pay instalments whenever you want so can be treated as pay weekly. You’ll need to sign up for an Argos Card and make sure it’s paid off before 12 months – it’s even interest free.

    Your other option for paying weekly for a new Xbox One X is making your purchase at BrightHouse -a second-hand retailer that offers Xbox One X as Pay Monthly or Pay Weekly at a fixed rate of 99.9% APR representative. If preferred, BrightHouse also offers a Pay Fortnightly option.

    BrightHouse representative example: Xbox One price £247.20. Pay 120 weekly payments of £4.10. Total amount payable £492.00. Rate of interest 99.90% (variable) 99.90% APR representative

    Xbox One finance with bad credit history

    A little unknown retailer called Lintronics.uk offers finance deals to almost 100% of the customers who apply for credit. Sounds too good to be true? Well, we can’t comment, as we know very little about this retailer and have only featured them as part of our research for this guide on games console finance. The prices are expensive but if it means you can spread the payment for a new Xbox One with a poor credit history, it might be worth paying them a visit.

    Xbox One X finance

    If you want to buy the very best Xbox One console on finance – the Xbox One X – you will be able to find cheap bundles on 0% interest free credit from the retailers we’ve mentioned above, such as AO.com and GAME. Plenty of other retailers offer Xbox One X finance but on terms that will accrue interest, such as pay monthly or pay weekly deals.
