With the recession still looming over us, many (me included) have cut back on buying Christmas gifts for loved ones. But how do you tell little children that Santa Claus can't leave them any toys under the tree this year?! No one has the heart to do that.
Luckily merchants know that money is especially tight around the holidays so are offering deferred billing options so we can buy toys now and pay for them later!
Wards says “Yes” and frequently provides credit accounts to consumers when other retailers have said “No”! Get quick approval up to $100 credit with payments of only $10 per month. Shop for Disney, Mattel, Fisher Price and other name brand toys. I remember shopping at Montgomery Ward stores years ago, but they are strictly online now!
