    Firstly apologies if this isn't in the right forum

    As the title suggest I am looking to buy an ipad mini as a present for my boyfriends birthday in less than two weeks.

    As it's so close to Christmas, and it being the time where my rent & bills are due , my bank balance will struggle to pay for an iPad mini straight out... Does any one know of any stores that sell ipad minis and perhaps offer some sort of credit card ..preferably with a 'X' amount months interest free would be even better!

    Thank you in advance

    Very and the other stores in the shop direct group (like littlewoods isme e.t.c) do a buy now pay later offer. So if you buy an ipad mini you have a year to pay it all off and they will not charge you any interest. However if you don't pay the full amount before the year is up they will add a years worth of interest on top. You have to apply for credit with them though before you can do that

    My boyfriend has his heart set on an iPad though. I agree that they are overpriced though!

    Went to the Apple store the other day and they said they weren't even offering student discounts on the iPad mini and the iPads that were they were 4%. Oh, and their only sales are on the American Black Friday, how out of touch can you be?

    Oh, I still want one lol. I don't like the cloud based Google Play.

    In summer for three months students get a 15% discount on all products so no need to complain. Why dont u buy it at a duty free airport so u get 20% off or buy it from abroad when ur friends go elsewhere for even lower prices

      The iPad mini is relatively cheap compared to some of Apple's other products. I believe Apple offer finance on their computers but not iPads. Since it is only £269, it wouldn't really be worth taking a loan for. Maybe you could put it on a credit card or use your overdraft?

      Ive used all my overdraft and maxed out my credit card. I do have my student loan coming in on the 7th, but have so much to pay then (3 months rent and bills, credit card) . So cant really afford to buy it outright until the 30th Jan when I get paid by work, but that will be too late:/
