Default Long term free financing furniture.....

I find it a little disturbing and maybe a sign of just how bad things have gotten in the business world when I see offers for 5 year 0% on furniture and 8 year 0% on bedding. Seriously, 8 year 0% financing. Am I being paranoid or is it really that desperate?

I think it's just cut throat marketing

I'd rather have lower prices without the financing...

Rooms to go, has been offering that for quite some time. They hedge their bets on the fact that people are sure to miss 1 payment in said amount of time and when they do. Whamo! they hit you with the interest, retroactively of course.

You are paying for the interest in the price. Seen this with AC systems as well. My son got a quote of $9500, no interest over 5 years. A year ago I put in a similar system, $5300 cash including duct upgrade.
