The Clever Clarinetist is currently seeking a low-interest consumer financing option. In the meantime, we're offering advice on how to pay for your gear! Check out some options below to see which method suits your needs.
PayPal Credit is an excellent option for customers that like to pay off their big purchases over time, and their credit limits are perfect for things like new clarinets! PayPal Credit also comes with the security that people have come to love from PayPal. This credit line often provides perks for shopping with other major online retailers such as eBay, Target, Wayfair, and more.
If you are a student, then your absolute BEST option for financing (whether you purchase your new gear here or from another shop) is a student loan. I know, student loans have a bit of a bad reputation these days, but you can't beat the low-interest (1.50%-11.85%) rates of student loans or the potential forgiveness of a federal student loan. Most music retailers who offer to finance start their rates at 13%.
12-24 Months Interest-Free Financing and Credit Building!
Lots of credit cards offer 0% APR in the first year or introductory period. This is a great option for someone who wants to pay off their purchase quickly and build their credit. I'm a particular fan of the Discover IT card.
