Contracts used to be the go-to option for the majority of folks getting their hands on a new smartphone, but installment plans are slowly starting to take over. Now even OnePlus is getting in on the fun through purchases made from its U.S. online store.
For any purchase that’s over $99, OnePlus will offer a variety of different installment plan options for customers, allowing them to split up the cost of a device in different ways, hopefully making it an even more feasible option to buy a OnePlus X or OnePlus 2. OnePlus will also let customers pay off their device at any time, so even if they just want to pay a little up front and pay it off the next month, that’s possible.
For the OnePlus X, which retails for $249.00, customers can pay $16.12 every month for 18 months, 12 monthly payments of $23.06, or $43.95 every month for six months. And for the OnePlus 2, which has a retail price tag of $349.00, the monthly breakdowns start at $22.60 each month for 18 months; $32.33 for 12 monthly payments; and 6 monthly payments of $61.60. OnePlus notes that these monthly payments all include an APR of 19.99 percent.
While the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X aren’t the most expensive devices on the market, it’s still nice to see the company offering new ways for customers to pick up the handsets. Did you get your current daily driver through installment plans?
