Yesterday BBC Breakfast featured an article about buying from Next online. It seems customers on the Next website are buying an article, expecting to pay for it by credit or debit card but instead, they are automatically being signed up to a store card type of loan that they did not want.
Apparently, it seems that as you proceed with your purchase there is a box somewhere which needs to be UNTICKED to avoid being given a loan you didn't want! Next have told the BBC that they plan to put this right, but not until February 2010. Surely, it can't take that long to change a small thing like that?
And what comes between now and February 2010? Yes, Christmas! You may think that's a cynical ploy - I couldn't possibly comment!
