Is there a way to get an XBox 360 and pay in payments?

I know this may sound odd, and Ive stated I didnt plan on getting this system, but I have am aunt who said shed get this for me if there was a payment plan. Anyone know of a store that has this? I dont mean layaway either. I recall seeing an add somewhere that stated you could get a 360 and pay only $15 a month; I dont recall where though.

Anyone have a "deal" like this going?

Why not just put it on a credit card and make monthly payments? Sure, you have to pay interest, but anyone who is going to lend you money will charge you interest.

Use a credit card, and pay off the balance over time?

You could use a no payments/no interest credit card plan. Then pay it off before the finance charges start. Problem is you have to find a system first.

I am sure you did see a plan that said $15 a month. But, I would very strongly advise against such a plan. Especially if you only plan on paying the $15 a month. What you probably didnt notice is the huge ridiculous interest rates. By the time its paid years from now making the minimum, you could have had an Xbox 360, a PS3, and a Nintendo Revolution with some games on the side.

I really don't think you will have to worry about this though as your chances of finding a system before Christmas are pretty nill at this point.

I'm sure Rent-A-Center will let you pay $15 a month for the next 5 years.

Just have her give you the $15 a month. Then when you've finally got the $400...get a Revolution.

Tell her thanks for the offer but no thanks. If she needs to buy the system on an installment plan she probably can't actually afford it.

Best Buy always has no interest for like 6 months on the Best Buy Credit Card for any purchase over $250.
