Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 23, 2012
UpgradeUSA, a leading online company focused on helping people build credit through laptop payment plans, is now helping consumers better manage their 2012 holiday shopping budgets by offering an innovative payment program that allows approved customers to receive the computer they want without the wait associated with layaway programs offered by several big-box retailers.
The benefits of UpgradeUSA’s laptop payment plans over other merchants’ layaway programs include:
- Fast Shipping. For many consumers, the concept of waiting for months to receive a quality computer is over. Once the customer’s first payment is processed, UpgradeUSA ships the laptop of the customer’s choice to them. Customers are able to start surfing the Web on a new laptop in days, not months.
- Credit-Building. By reporting every laptop payment to all three US credit bureaus every month, UpgradeUSA’s online laptop payment plans help people take a critical step towards building good credit. UpgradeUSA is one of the only online companies that offer this service on new, quality computers and tablets that people want or need for home, work, or school.
- Online convenience. With UpgradeUSA, customers manage their entire transaction online. People can now shop with privacy, convenience, and discretion; they don’t need to trudge to a store every month to make a payment.
Consumers who visit UpgradeUSA.com will find a variety of new and factory-refurbished computers made by the world’s leading technology companies, and many models come with Windows 8, the newest operating system from Microsoft.
“Although big-box vendors are pushing their credit-challenged customers towards layaway programs for laptops, we have developed a better way,” said Jon Weisblatt, founder & CEO, UpgradeUSA. “Our customers love the service we provide and the convenience we offer, and we invite those who are considering layaway to give UpgradeUSA a try.”
