Tips For Reducing Dell Costs
The longer your credit is outstanding with Dell Financial Services, the more you will have to pay in interest – similar to any other short-term financing arrangement. Depending on the agreement you have in place, it may be advisable to attack the balance more aggressively than the minimum payment every month, which will save you money in the long-run. There is always a minimum amount which can be paid, so you know where you stand with cash flow, and in months where you can afford to pay more, you can choose to do so through the online payment gateway.
