TELUS has a couple tablets for sale, the recently released BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE. If you’re currently one of their 7.4 million customers and thinking about scoring one of these you could be interested in their new “Easy Tablet Repayment Program.” This launches today and is only for existing customers and basically gives you the option of signing a 1 or 2-year contract with a reduced price, then spreading out monthly payments over the contract period until the device is paid off.
Here are the details we received from TELUS:
When purchasing a Samsung Galaxy 8.9 Tablet or Blackberry 4G LTE Playbook, customers can now pay a lower up-front price and the remaining balance owing is spread out into convenient $20 payments to be made on a monthly basis for the duration of the term they signed up for. For example, if a customer purchases the Samsung Galaxy 8.9 Tablet, instead of purchasing the device at $649.99 month to month, they can choose to sign a 2 year term at $169.99 and then spread out the remaining balance of into $20 payments over the 2 year term. The Easy Tablet Repayment of $20 shows up as a separate line item on the customer’s bill and will automatically stop charging once the balance has been paid.
This new program is available for 1 or 2 year terms for existing TELUS mobility customers. Customers can access this great new way to pay at TELUS corporate stores or participating dealer locations.
This hasn’t shown up on the TELUS site yet.
