B&H Credit Card No Interest Limited time promotion

If you are planning a bigger purchase or a system switch or a system upgrade or want to develop new photographic areas of interest that require investment in new lenses (sports, architecture, etc), and you are financially organized enough that you can pay the installments on time so you can avoid paying any interest…

… then you may be interested to hear that B&H Photo is running a special No Interest If Paid In Full financing promotion until 12/2/19. The duration of the promotion depends on the total order amount…

… purchases over $1599 get a 24-month no interest period, while purchases over $599 get 12 months and purchases over $199 get 6 months.

Minimum monthly payments are required. The total amount MUST BE paid in FULL before the 6/12/24 months are over ~ in order to avoid paying any interest at all.

IF they are not paid in full by then, you will be charged interest from the PURCHASE DATE, from the beginning. In other words, don’t do this promotion if you are not certain you can make the monthly installments. OF course no one can foresee the unforeseen, so use your own judgment as to whether to do this or not…

Zeiss Lens Sale (68 options) [C/N/E/X/M]

Note that this is lens options, not lenses, meaning a lens available in four mounts counts as four options in the listings…
