We all love a holiday, but the thought of forking up a large sum of our pay slip, all at once, then having to live on two-minute noodles for the next fortnight, doesn’t sit well.
We all have that one dream, where we walk on to a plane, sit there for a while, and walk off, no money spent. Well at least I’ve had that dream.
Now you can! Fly free!
Ok, I lied. Not quite, but there is something very similar.
Jetstar has unveiled Afterpay to their consumers. I was recently told about this payment method that allows consumers to pay in installment post purchase.
The idea of the service on Jetstar is that book your flights, go on your sweet little holiday, and pay in 4 simple installments post purchase/experience. Sounds almost too good to be true. Well, sort of!
The terms and conditions that everyone forgets to read have a few rules that makes the experience a little more complicated, but nothing that will stop people from using it.
- Must book 8 weeks in advance
- The experience comes with a $10 service fee
- Only domestic flights, costing between $200-$1000
- Late payment fees apply
Is this an impressive way to get younger consumers on board, or just another gimmick?
Have you used AfterPay on shopping sites, if so, how was the experience?
