have you checked consumer reports?

http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/index.htm


They may have testimonials of people who have tried those methods of purchasing items. I personally do not buy anything until I have the money for it, which is why I still don't have a nice TV so I am unfamiliar with all of those things.

dont listen to the "i only buy it if i have the money" when given the opportunity to have something nice, that person didn't have the brains or know how , to do so. I have purchased TVs and A laptop from both QVC and HSN. the best part is you don't pay interest on the items and the shipping was free. i have a job so i can afford to make the 4 payments required and have money to have a normal life and be able to pay my bills. and before i know it, my payments are done and here i am on my nice big screen tv using it as my computer monitor, AAAH life is grand

best bet is to just google and look around. i personally haven't used any, but my mother has boughten from QVC and HSN using payment methods like that.

And the IshopIknow person - STFU. One post = one reason for us to kill you.

it seems like ishopiknow is one of those cases where you stumble on a thread, and you join because you want to add your input...BUT
i totally disagree with what he/she said - cash/paid outright is the way to go on any small purchase
