If I’m going to chose the monthly payment option in the payment tab, will I get the computer first and pay it off or will I have to pay it off and then I can get the computer? Please help I am considering about buying my first pc so any other tips will help too. Thanks

Welcome to the forum JoseRivas!

I have not used Bread, but others here have said you will submit your order with DS, and when Bread approves financing they build it and ship it.   In the past, build delays or shipping delays have had some customers making a first payment before receiving the computer.   You will have to ask DS and Bread about those details when you order.

Don't finance dude. Have a little patience and save up for it. You'll probably end up paying 20%-30% more going the financing route.

How do you figure?
Whereas I agree that if you can you should not finance, I don't think the interest payment and fess add up to your estimate. But I will admit that I don't know how Bread works. So if I am mistaken, please correct me.
Oops

Click the link to get qualified. I was qualified for zero percent interest for up to 6 months. Above 6 months, there was interest.

My order went in a couple days ago. My first payment is due in a month. I expect my new computer to arrive in about a month as well.

I used Bread to spread my payment over 3 months at 0 interest. They were very pleasant to work with, and very professional. I can easily recommend their service.

Just an aside... for those who wish to increase their credit score, financing through Bread for 0% over 6 months is a good way to do it. If you have the cash on hand, simply put it in a separate account, finance the purchase through Bread and make the monthly payments.

Doesn't cost you any extra (and in some cases you could earn a little it in interest) and your credit score will improve as you've proven to be a good risk.

Just my 2¢....

0% for 6 months is fine if you pay it off. There's still probably going to be fees involved for this option.  Most who have to finance will not pay it off before the elevated interest kicks in. This is the goal of the financier. (I hope that's a word). They're not lending you money because you're just awesome. Just read the fine print.
