Harvey Norman Promo
My friend planning to get a camera from Harvey Norman soon. Heard over the radio that currently there is a free extended warranty promo. Is it true?

HN charge the recommended retail price. The C5060WZ cost S$1400+ and you can get it less than that in any photo retail shop.
Installment? You ended up paying a bomb. Why not use your credit card pay for the purchase at, for eg., Cathay Photo. Then use credit facilities to pay back to your credit card after 30 days. You pay less interest than by installment from HN.
Extended warrant? Don't buy the idea. My neighbour DVD Recorder went bust and he cannot get back the original model, instead was offered the next model at the fraction of price he paid.
Like they said, electronics gadget change by the time you fully understand their function.

HN I think have similar 0% interest free installments using credit card like Courts. If you repay in 12 months they bill your credit card, Price/12 every month, nothing extra. However they sell at MSRP, which can be 10% ~ 20% more than the street price
Shops like MS color charge 5% more (beside GST) for 0% installments.
