Unexpected Sources Of Credit

Recommended Posts

As we await a Greece induced armageddon this week end I thought this might be an amusing thread.

The ideas is to identify things for which credit is provided even though they shouldn't. The purpose of course is to get people to pay more than they can afford thus raising prices.

One shocker I remember is a French outlet that offered 12 months credit for the purchase of a case of Champagne prior to Christmas 2008. I read about Walmart reinstating layaways today and as I looked for other instances I came across this:

Collectible banknotes

If you see more banknotes than you can afford we are happy to hold any banknotes for you whilst you pay off. This can be monthly, weekly, etc, to suit your budget. A deposit on a banknote will ensure the item is held for you until final payment is made. We understand, as collectors ourselves, there are always banknotes just out of reach. Our layaway facility helps you, the collector, obtain these scarce items for your collection.

Does this mean I can buy a £10 note for £50? Or a £100 note for £600?

Greetings my anorak friend! I had begun to think hpc had run out of people who appreciate the finer things in life.

Your suggestion is excellent and I shall include it in the next meeting's agenda to be debated.
