Your Dream Gadgets, Unlocked: Here’s How You Can Upgrade Your Daily Tech Essentials Without Draining Your Budget
Let’s face it: Buying gadgets can be tough on the budget. Sometimes it can take you months or even years of saving up to afford high-quality tech gear, including those that are *almost* considered essential to everyday life. This includes laptops for work and school or smartphones for communication, which cost tens or hundreds of thousands when purchased in one go.
But before you settle for cheaper but lower-quality equipment, here’s a wiser option you might want to consider: a monthly installment plan that lets you pay only a fraction of your gadget’s cost over time.
With the SM Malls Online app, you can purchase the latest gadgets and gizmos on a flexible monthly payment basis. This installment offer is applicable for in-store pick-up only—and here’s how it works:
Customers must choose the cash payment option upon checkout, then proceed with an in-store transaction and payment at designated malls. While major credit cards are accepted in-store, only straight payments can be made via credit cards and GCash payments. Take note that installment orders via credit card or GCash and/or via standard delivery will also be canceled automatically.
Below, you can check out 5 daily essential gadgets available for these installment plans until April 30—so you can buy now, and pay later instead!
Are you looking for a work or study gadget that’s lightweight and portable? Rather than a laptop, a high-powered tablet might be a better choice for you.
