Advantages: Quick delivery, easy to use 0% apr for a year
Disadvantages: bad quality furniture, prices are 10% more than the buy outright site
I have been using littlewoods for the last 2 years and i have been very impressed. However i have found that a lot of other people aren't such a fan of them and i'm not sure why.
Yes you do get items on credit which is all fine and dandy plus yes gain its interest free for paying over a year and yes again its 29.9% apr if you do it over 2 or 3 years.
The prices you will find are slightly higher when doing it on credit than buying it outright ( comparing both littlewoods.co.uk and littlewoods-direct.co.uk) but i really dont mind, simply because with not such a great credit rating and in dyer need of a bed, Littlewoods was the only one to give me credit to get the bed.
In regards to the product quality of littlewoods stuff, i would say i have no complaints on the electrical side or the bed side, as the bed is very sturdy and everything i wanted, but the furniture you get is not of the quality i expect. For the price you pay i did not expect to get chip board weak furnitue. I bought a cabinate from them at £125 and firstly it did not line up properly and now after 12 months its bowing under the weight of itself (does not have anything heavy either on it or in it).
But do not let this put you off littlewoods. They have always been great with the service for me and even when i ordered some clothing items which i found out were out of stock, they were very helpful and kept me informed of the progress of the order.
And now with the reward scheme for just paying your bill, i have more reason to order from them, as i have already got a substantial amount of money on the scheme.
Mind you i wish they would stop upping the credit limit on my account.
So my summery of Littlewoods:
If you read through the terms, then there will be no supprises, i will happily order with them but not furniture unless they improve the quality.
Summary: Good service, quick delivery and easy to use
