Default Metro PCS Phone Financing Option Available

Just an FYI, here in the Tampa area, and really in all of FL now, a lot of these dealers have a program now that finances the cost of these Metro phones. I went to the one by my house last night and they do it there. I believe it's 10% down then you make payments every payday, but you have to have a bank account. We are thinking about doing it for an S3 tonight or tomorrow, so I will let you know how it goes. It's an option for those of us that can't really drop that much all at once on a phone.You can also search the Cell Phones section on your local Craigslist and find dealers that are offering the program.

I will post an update on how it went once we go back up there and fill out the paperwork.

It is through a company called Progressive Financing, and it is a program they have rolled out to a lot of Metro PCS authorized dealers. You put down 10% then set up payments on your payday to ACH debit from your bank account. The application process took about 30 minutes and it does work. They have about an 80-85% approval rate. No credit check, just checking your bank to make sure you don't have a lot of NSF or overdrafts. Hello Unlimited wireless in Riverview is doing it, as well as the one on Kingsway in Brandon. The one by my house is as well. It is the Metro PCS store on Fowler in the Winn Dixie plaza where Fowler & 301 merge, right across from the Big Top Flea Market. They still seem to have plenty of S3's in stock.

Best of luck and let me know how it goes!

PS - Here is a link to another store on 56th Street doing it:
METRO PCS IS NOW DOING NO CREDIT CHECK FINANCING ON PHONES!!!

EDIT: No, I am not a dealer, just wanted to spread the word on this because I know how many people want these new phones but can't afford the cost all at once.

I am doing as much as I can each time to get it over with sooner, but some of the places are saying they can work with you and do $20. Best bet is to get in there sometime this weekend and check, because you will be more than happy once you do!!

The question I would be asking is how much are they charging to do this?

In other words how much more will the phone have cost you when you are done with the payment plan versus just saving the money and buying it out right. These plans are rarely a good idea.

Yes, I can confirm that you should start to see this in most Metro PCS stores nationwide. I am a sales broker for Progressive Finance. I can actually set-up any cell phone store that want to participate in the program. If you are a dealer and want to participate in this program give me a call at 615-823-1322 or visit expresssolutions.biz
I am really excited about this! As the holidays as soon approaching, this is something a lot of people will want to take advantage of!

If you qualify use eBay's bill-me-later. I've been checking ebay lately for any listings and almost daily there are listing for New SGsIII. Yesterday there was a listing only in aution and I asked the seller to sell it to me "buy it now" at $500. He was nice enough to let me "name my price" and that included shipping. so if you qualify for bill me later, definitely go for it. Just ordered mine last night! Yay me!!!! (mind you that I bought my gf's phone cash on the 22nd and have been on "hate-mode" since.

First, I don't mean to denigrate anyone who has taken this deal, but.

This is just my .02, YMMV. And it likely does.

This deal kind of puts a bad taste in my mouth. Hey, I like a pa-jammin' phone as much as the next guy but it's just a damn phone. The sayin' Champagne' taste on a beer budget comes to mind. If you can afford to pay cash for the S3, please by all means Do It! OTOH, it's about the last item on the planet I'd "go into debt" for. No freekin' way. I just don't need nor will ever need a highest zootest phone that bad.

Another HUGE +1. If you have not fully-funded your IRA and 401k for 2012, you have no business doing this. Buying a phone on time and credit is pure foolishness. Your future self will thank you if you keep your financial priorities in line. It's fun to get excited about toys and cool things to play with, but only reward yourself if you have already taken care of the important things.

I subscribed to this post cause I thought maybe someone would post the requirements by now, what do they ask for when you're trying to use this financing option? If they even ask for something. Or how much the interest is but I guess no yet. I would like to know. Thank you.

Sound advice, indeed.....however, remember that a LOT of people are with Metro PCS not just because of the great service and lower pricing but also because they don't necessarily have the cash and or/credit that the larger providers require. In circumstances such as this when there is a $500 phone, obviously there will be people, like myself, who choose to go the finance route. That doesn't make us idiots or fools. Fine it doesn't work for you....but there are plenty of people that it does work for and I thought I would share the information. Congratulations, by the way, on being apparently very well-off and financially sound.

The key to getting that way is by making finacially sound decions (for what it is worth, I am not the poster boy for this) and not give in to immediate gratification. No one has yet to post the details for this but it still gets back to - if you can't buy it outright, save your pennies till you can. Choosing not to is a key reason why you may or may not be well off or financially sound.

The only reason for doing this is maybe if there is 0% option that you qualify for that you are certain you can pay off by the end of the term.

Well went over to forest lakes wireless here in Oldsmar.I bought two S3's today one for me and one for the wife. I used progressive financing they are real good for a net 90 If you pay it till end phone starts at 442 then with all payments made it ends up 700 and change. Also you pay ten percent down to start it. They have some s3s left so if you plan to get one head over there and speak with Imire sorry if I spelt it wrong. Enjoy your new S3

Paying **75% more** than the current price for the S3 simply because you can't afford it, (Yes, if you have to finance the damn thing, you CAN'T afford it!) is about the stupidest way I can think of to pi** away $300 cash.

It's a damn phone not a pocket kidney dialysis machine.

You pay the 700 only if you choose to make min. payments every month. The have a 90 day option,where as you pay the 442 price.
Here is the facts:
You have two buyout options from your lease/purchase agreement. If you wish to utilize one of the options, please call our office and set up payment arrangements with one of our representatives.

1. 90 Day Payment Option: Pay only the invoice amount (plus the $44.30 already paid) within 90 days of the delivery date.
o Bi-Weekly payments are still required but extra payments will go toward the invoice amount.

2. Early Buyout: Pay only a partial amount of the lease balance anytime after 90 days.
o If you wish to purchase the merchandise outright before the 12 month term, you may contact us and request the early buyout balance.

And like I said if you pay the payments to lease/contract end then it comes out to around 700.Kinda like rent a center or Arons.

So I am going to pay the net 90 so i avoid all that BS

ok you go to the metropcs store you buy the sgs3 after taxes and whatever the price is 442 and change. You finance this purchase,Now you pay 44.29 (10%) to the metro folks sign papers and leave with your new phone.
The payment options are:
Pay off the balance about 400 in 90 days all done
Pay off some of the balance after 90 days call and request a payoff
Lastly make all payments i think it is 12 and you end up paying 700 and some change.

So just pay it off in 90 days and avoid all the interest
Hope this helps

Well I guess if you pay it off in the 90 days its not that bad that's what like 130 or 140 a month with the down payment? If I read that correctly its seems like a better option than the bill float.

anybody aware of any stores doing this on the east side of florida between jacksonville and daytona maybe a little further south? i need to get a new phone the power button on my connect not working correctly so i need a new phone.

Yes that's correct billfloat wanted 215 down then 125 in 30 days and again at 60 they charge you 36% interest so ends up like 460 so other is beter cause it requires only 10% down

Both Metro PCS and Cricket have cell phone financing. If you are a dealer and also would like cell phone financing in your store, please visit | Express Solutions. Sorry, at this time we can only set-up dealers. Stores that have this program WILL be coming to your area soon!

I'm actually a salesman in one of the metroPCS in the area , I also fell victim to those liars . I went to a progressive meeting and the spokeswoman told us that our customers would get charged 0% intrest if they choose to buy It out in 90 days so she can sell her lies . In actuality its 20% . And they charge you in about 3 weeks not 2 , for the second payment so they can hit you with an overdue amout when you domt have enough momey in your account , I currently owe more than 600$ on my 450$ lease which was about 85 days ago , I've called 2 times to resolve this issue but they just feed you lies . Theyve taken 58$ every 2 weeks and also charged me overdue fees , not even 90 days and I owe 600. I haven't sold progressive to a single customer after , commission doesn't matter anymore, I don't advise it in my store anymore cause I don't want people to go through the trouble I went through , the stress is unbelievable .

if you have a paypal account you can use BillMeLater and pay it off in 6 months with no interest. they have something going on now where there's no interest or payments for 6 months for purchases over $250. don't know how long that will last but thats an option available.

That's weird I did end up using the progressive service last year when I got my S3 and had non of those problems had it paid of in the 90 days no interest period and the money American out when they said it would. But maybe thin s have changed.
