Tablet prices: FNB vs cash

FNB recently started offering the Lenovo Ideatab A3000 to its customers for R99 per month. This forms part of the bank’s extensive digital device range.

The R99 per month financing option makes it affordable for South Africans who previously would not have been able to purchase a tablet outright.

It does, however, raise the question as to whether it is a good deal. The big question is how much extra you will pay if you select one of FNB’s 24 month deals, over purchasing the device cash.

MyBroadband looked at some of the tablets on offer and compared the overall value offered by different retailers to establish how the purchase options compare:
