I have searched everywhere for an answer to this question. If I buy a MacBook from the refurbished store, would the Barclay deferred interest plan still be in effect? The only answer I got from Barclay (auto response) is that, to take advantage of the deferred interest promotion, it can only be used at Apple Store or However, is the refurbished store still a part of that? I don't want to buy there, thinking I'm saving money, only to find out I'll be paying interest right away and end up paying for almost 2 MacBooks! :eek: Thank you to anyone who can advise me.

Looking at the UK store, when a refurb item is viewed in the basket you get the option for 'Finance Available' so it should work - though at the moment in the UK the 0% option isn't available, just the normal 14.9%.

I bought mine as a refurb on the Barclay card interest free without a problem, but you have to either apply as new or wait for them to offer a promo. If you apply for the card, you only have 30 days to purchase your item to take advantage of the promo. I hope this helps.
