  • 25% or 50% (plus any fees) at checkout

  • 25% two weeks after the transaction date

  • 25% four weeks after the transaction date

  • 25% six weeks after the transaction date

*APR from 18.1%.

Spend responsibly, spending more than you can afford could seriously affect your financial status. Credit subject to status, 18+, UK residents only. Representative example: Representative APR 18.1% (fixed) based on total spend: £240 (+£2.50 fees).
