If you are an Oak Tree tenant why not have a look at the Smarterbuys Store, a scheme that provides an ethical alternative to loan sharks and high street weekly payment stores, helping social housing tenants to buy household essentials in an affordable way.
SmarterBuys Store More than providing a great range of big brand products at competitive prices, SmarterBuys Store also provides access to responsible and affordable credit if customers are unable to pay for the goods they need up front. Following a simple, safe and confidential credit check, customers can pay for their goods in weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments over two years.
And as if this wasn’t enough, the scheme also encourages tenants to save as they buy, by putting 25p from every weekly payment into an account opened especially for them. At the end of the loan term, customers will have at least £26 in their account, more if they choose to add to it further themselves.
Nick Jardine, Chief Executive Officer at Oak Tree said of the scheme, “Our new partnership with SmarterBuys Store enables us to provide quality, essential household goods to our tenants, whilst supporting them to save in the process. SmarterBuys Store products are up to 40% cheaper than other weekly payment stores and provide a real alternative to the much higher cost options offered by unscrupulous lenders. At 24.19% APR, the rate of lending is very competitive, and is actually cheaper than many high street favourities”.
The full range of products includes a wide range of white goods including ovens, fridge freezers and washing machines, as well as a stylish range of quality furniture for the whole house. SmarterBuys Store also stocks a great range of baby and nursery products, and offers value packages for those seeking to make a number of purchases. Delivery is completely free and SmarterBuys Store can even install your new purchases. Plus, it doesn’t matter how many items customers buy; SmarterBuys Store only charges one administration fee per transaction.
