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.
