    Hello all!

    So I'm really considering getting a new mixer through mixdirect via finance.. the payments would work out around £20 a month for 24 months with 19% APR. On paper it looks like a good deal and it's definitely something I can manage.. but I'm just still a little skeptical. Are there any hidden things to watch out for when buying through finance? Have the payments always stuck to what is advertised? Or have you been surprised by hidden charges or something like that..

    just looking to get some reassurance really. I really want to go for it, but I really can't afford to step into a big heap of shit. :(

    Thanks for any responses!

    I work at a bank here in Brazil, and, at least here, what they show you is what really happens, without any surprises, in regard of financing things.
