Amazon has another financing promotion if you are planning to purchase select camera gear (plenty of DSLR and mirrorless options listed) and apply and get approved and pay for them with an Amazon Store Credit Card (not to be confused with the Amazon Chase VISA credit card). You pay 0% APR as long as you make 12 monthly equal payments. More details on the Promotion page.
As usual with credit offers, this makes sense if you are fairly certain you will be able to make the twelve payments on time, so you end up paying 0% APR.
PS: if you are a Prime member, when you apply, you could automatically be upgraded to a Prime Card which gets you 5% rewards back on purchases (see our previous post).
