Default Re: The thread of no meaning..

it'd really depend what the rates were on each...

you have to also consider that you'll have an interest free period with the credit card that may mean you'd have already paid it off by the time you would be charged interest.

you also have to consider that it is possible to get cash back credit cards that reward you for using them, and this may come in handy...

but there is also the risk with a credit card that you'll over spend on it, or keep having emergencies that need you to use it! this won't happen with a fixed credit agreement from dell..

a credit card will also only require you to pay of a certain amount of the balance, whilst dell will require fixed monthly payments, (I mean on a credit card or dell you could pay £50 per month, but if you can't afford that one omnth then you can easily only pay £20 that month, (or whatever the minimum payment happens to be).

Thanks root..

Because I am only 16, for obv reasons (i.e. I would buy too many things ) I have to use my Mum's, and I would just give her the money each month. Her card, has a one month interest free period..after that, the rate is something like 15% I think..

DELL's interest, is 18.9% - and that is their lowest one..

I think I might just use the credit card..because I am expecting some compensation soon..I can't remember whether the interest free period was one month..or two..

As long as I was to eventually pay her back..she doesn't mind how much I pay her each month. She said, in months where I dont get paid too much, because I havent worked that much, I can give her like £25, and in months where I do get paid quite alot, I can give her as much as I can, as long as it is over £25 though..

What you think about that? The DELL finance option, is 18.9% interest, at least, and the monthly payments are around £25. If you give a deposit, and a starter sum..you have 24 months, of £25-£30. If you dont give the deposit thing, it's 36 months, of £25-£30..

Im going to order it tonight

I thikn that dells finance is a complete rip off!!!

still the obvious reason is that they are in the business of making computers, not giving credit!

Why can't we drop stupid arguments that in the end have no relevance..?

[QUOTE=ArrizX]sorry for the triple post, but this doesnt really fit with anything else i said before..


anyways..


because it is a nice perk for us.. (for doing his dirty work)



well mods are selected based off activity, post quality, and social skills.

right now we have enough mods, however if we need one im sure you would be one of the guys being looked at.



you gotta think of it like this..
there are too many members here. but i do understand that we are mods for a reason and we can take care of someone with a porn image in a av.

and yes.. with out you guys there would be no us... but then again with out us, this plcae would be hell and there wouldnt be any of you..



but the mods are why you keep comming back... when it all comes down to it, with out any moderation and people running amuk you wouldnt be here. you know the spam attacks and threats this place gets..

Quote:
yes, its only a forum, so why are you so keen for a little image?

thats true.. but its just a fun little feature



we dont know that, there could be a threat that everyone leaves if they do get it. however im 99.9% sure that wont happen either. odds are good david wont crack on that, but you dont always know that for sure...
Arrix is right hes my bruddah (can i say negro?)

this thread is still going on, and i even lost what the true meaning was in here. the subject keeps changing, it's hard to follow what's going on. i can see this thread being nothing more than useless chatter.

threads with content that can contribute to the forum will be the ones that will carry on the longest because so many are involved.

U are asking what the true meaning of 'the thread of no meaning' is?

But yeah, the subject has to keep changing since this is a thread where u can just post all the little questions u want to get the answer to but don't bother to make a new thread since it really ain't an important question.
