Is anyone currently paying off their ASUS ROG Gaming Laptop Monthly? I am looking to get the 12 Month Financing from Amazon, but it seems really tough from them since the Laptop keeps going out of stock. Is anyone using PayPal's Credit (Bill Me Later) system? I just wanted to know how people did it and where they got it from online.

Really eager to own this beast. Looking to buy it this weekend.

I used the Amazon 12-month financing with my G751JY that I've had for 1 day now. Will be interesting to see how it works, and if they itemize past purchases (and their pay-by date) like Newegg does.

You can always visit your bank and get a personal loan.

I've used Bill Me Later for other purchases since it was free financing. However their interest rates are borderline criminal so you want to be *very* careful to pay it off in time, preferably a bit early, otherwise you'll get hit with a big bill for accrued interest. They are counting on you forgetting or being unable to pay it off during the free financing period.

It's actually a decent financial tool if you have the discipline to leverage it correctly. My bank allows me to schedule future payments so I just planned out a payment schedule to guarantee early payoff and set it up at the beginning. That eliminated the possibility of the deadline sneaking up on me or missing a payment.

Also be careful about financing more than one purchase at a time. IIRC, they have a certain way of applying payments where it goes to interest free balances first. That means if you have an existing balance and then buy a big ticket item (laptop) on free financing you will be unable to pay off the original balance until the laptop is paid off in full. You will be charged interest on that original balance every month until you pay off everything.
