Amazon US has introduced payment plans for gaming PC goods

Consumers after a new gaming PC now have an additional way of paying for it... if they're from North America and use Amazon.

As spotted by Destructoid, the retail giant has introduced a new monthly payment system for PCs, including laptops, desktops, tablets, monitors, computer components, hard drives and storage, memory, networking a well as computer and tablet accessories.

One interesting aspect of this deal is that there isn't any difference in price between paying for your goods up front or spreading the cost across five months, due to this being a zero interest deal. But consumers do have to pay off the cost in that timeframe - there appears to be zero flexibility

There are some limitations on this deal, however. It is tied to Amazon US accounts for the time being, with users having to have had an account with the retailer for more than a year, have a good payment history AND have a credit card linked to the account.
