Decided to take out a Macbook using the Barclays Partner Finance option.

Application was approved, received the macbook, then decided to phone Barclays to see what the story is with setting up direct debit etc.

Was told that I'd receive a welcome pack detailing which day the direct debit will come off (I get to choose) and various other details. They said I'd receive that within 7-10 days of receiving the mac.

It's been about a month since I received the mac, but still no welcome pack has arrived.

Do I phone and admit it? OR just leave it in the hope that they've screwed up and lost my application or something... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Don't want to risk any extra fees, but a free macbook would be nice biggrin.gif

Barclays is a bank and runs Apple credit cards. I am unsure about this partner program (never herd of it). I would call and ask about the packet again. I would not consider this free. They will report to Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union with possibility of legal action if none payment was to occur.

Also, in the worst case, they might initiate the payments 6 or 12 months down the line. Then you've got unexpected payments for an out-dated computer that you weren't expecting. Be a man, report the error and enjoy some good karma.

Yeah there is quite of lot of people that complain about Barclays on macrumors so I'd just be honest and avoid any headache.
