Guide to pay weekly

Understanding Pay Weekly Stores

At BrightHouse, we understand that it's not always possible to make a payment in one go. That's why, as a weekly payment store, we allow you to spread the cost across all of our products, making payment instalments over one, two or three years (Representative APR 69.9-99.9% Fixed).

How do weekly payment stores work?

Pay weekly stores allow you to buy now and pay weekly, spreading the cost over a set amount of time to make your purchase more manageable, at a fixed interest rate. At BrightHouse, we'll always show you exactly what you'll pay before you sign-up, both week by week and overall. Payment plans are always available to view before commitment, which you can see within the product pages.

What are the benefits of pay weekly?

No deposit

We don't ask for a deposit. All you need to do is make your first weekly payment and we'll arrange for the delivery and installation of your product right away.

Smaller, more manageable payments

Our pay weekly plan allows you to split the cost of large purchases over a period of time at a fixed borrowing rate of 69.99-99.99%. This could be a handy option if you get paid weekly and can only manage small payments at a time, taking away the need to fulfil a large payment all in one go.

Improved credit rating

By showing that you can make your weekly payments, you could improve your credit rating. If you'd like to know more about this, we've put together a handy guide on how to improve your credit rating.

Can I pay weekly with bad credit?

A low credit rating can make it tricky to gain approval when buying on credit. There are many reasons why a person may have a low credit rating (the most common is from previous financial troubles), but this is not always the case. This could simply be because you haven't applied to purchase products on credit yet. We look at the ability of our customers to pay for products now and in the future, rather than basing this solely on past credit history.

How to apply for a pay weekly agreement

To apply for credit repayable on a weekly basis, simply apply online or visit one of our 281 stores across the UK (you can find your local using our store finder). As part of the process, we'll perform a credit and affordability check so we can determine whether our pay weekly payment plan will work for you. Find out more about how we carry out credit checks.
