    Long & McQuade has Monster Days all of June. 0% financing for 12 months! I'm thinking my new Helix LT is getting closer than I thought!

    Dang. I already hit L&M for financing during Gibson Month. But Tribute Ts are all gone since mid-April, so I'm glad I didn't wait :hippie:

    Usually just lame days. I get 12month 0% financing by saving my money for 12 months then buying it on sale.

    Good for you.
    At 0% interest it costs nothing to borrow which if one can afford the payments isn't a bad thing (I certainly wouldn't feel guilty being only 3 years away from paying off my house and having money in RRSPs). As far as "sales" go L&M are not known for killer deals period. Very little movement on prices unlike US Vendors. They are owned by Yorkville Sound which is Canada's largest distributor snd they control prices pretty tightly. WHen our dollar was on par I bought 2 Gibson RIs from the US and sved a ton of csh ($600 each)

    I was making a point about the "sales" not people using the 0% interest. When I re read my post I see how it comes off that way.

    There are a few Long and McQuade stores in London but none of them have a Helix in stock. Seems kind of ridiculous. Who cares about interest? I don't buy gear I cant afford on credit.

I only financed it cause to pay it all up front i couldnt do it in good concious. Im fine for money it just still feels greedy droppint 2k oj a big pedal. But i love it.

    Kinda hard to see the downside in using other people's money for free.

    Any car dealer will tell you when 0 for 60 is on, millionaires are lined up financing cars.

    I get 0% when I can, even if I can afford it in cash. Makes your credit number go up and frees up your cash for saving or investing.
