No matter how well you plan, life is full of unexpected surprises. For federal government employees, retirees and military retirees, Purchasing Power offers a way to take care of things when unexpected expenses occur. The best part is being able to get what you need, when you need it, without the added worry of accruing interest, hidden fees or credit checks.

Be Prepared for Financial Surprises

I’ve been an Army wife for nearly 20 years, and with a husband who was often deployed around the world for months at a time, I’ve always been the one in charge of our finances. So when it came time for retirement, I thought I had our new budget all figured out. What I didn’t expect was it to take a couple months for the payroll to kick in, and even longer for the full benefits to come through. When we suddenly found ourselves working with a fraction of our usual income and needing to replace a broken dryer, the last thing we wanted to do was pile on debt by using credit cards. This is where the Purchasing Power program is the clear alternative, offering a solution without added financial stress.

How Does It Work?

Once you sign up for Purchasing Power, you’ll be given a spending limit to use in their online store. Prices are comparable to large retailers, but some may be a little higher due to warranties being built in to the cost. All the items on their website are new (nothing refurbished) so you have peace of mind that you are getting a quality item that is backed-up by a warranty if there are any problems. You will have a 6 or 12-month option to repay, and the breakdown of payments will be clearly shown on your order. The payments will be taken directly out of your paycheck, so that’s one less thing to worry about. And unlike layaway, your order will ship right away.
