So I’m considering the July 4 furniture sales, as I’m (given a good inspection) buying a house pretty soon. If the sales are sufficiently good, I might buy early. I haven’t got a whole lot of loose cash lying around, but I could pay off any furniture in a few months (certainly before 2007).
So, they’re all screaming “No interest until 2007!” I figure that if you haven’t paid for it yet when 2007 comes around you get hit with huge fees and interest, but what if you just want a few extra months to pay for your furniture? Is there a catch? Some sort of early payment penalty? What’s the Straight Dope?
