It’s been a long, difficult year for everyone and with the festive season looming, you’re bound to want to brighten things up with a few presents around the ole Christmas tree. Of course, with finances being tough for many families this time of year, buying the latest gadgets for yourself or loved ones isn’t always possible. Luckily, getting your hands on the latest tech like the new Xbox, iPhone, or even a smart TV this festive season is easier than ever before with Rentoza’s subscription plan offers.
Forget having to pay for gadgets and electronics outright in one large payment, Rentoza makes getting your hands on the things you want (and need) a lot more manageable with its easy subscription service model.
With Rentoza, you can choose to sign up for a 6 or 12-month subscription plan for the device or appliance you want, paying an affordable monthly subscription fee on the same date each month. Even better, December is the best time to sign up, with special festive subscription deals available on the Rentoza website until the end of December.
Once your subscription period comes to an end at the end of the 6 or 12-month period, you have the option to keep the item with no additional payments, or you can return your item and upgrade to another device – the choice is yours.
Upgrade your life
And that’s where the real genius comes in. If you choose to return the device to Rentoza and upgrade, then you’ll get the option to upgrade to a new product and subscription, with the cost of your next subscription at a discounted rate. The longer you subscribe, the more you’ll save. This is a great option for anyone who loves to have the latest devices, and those who love being rewarded for their loyalty. If you want to make sure you always have the latest version of the iPhone or want to ensure your smart TV is always keeping up with the new technology as it comes out, then the subscription model is for you!
What’s more, all products and subscriptions include comprehensive insurance cover from Old Mutual, so you needn’t worry about having to continue paying for the item should it be stolen or damaged.
Don’t buy, subscribe
Globally, subscription models are gaining popularity, as consumers opt to rent instead of own their technology. Now, that option is available to South African consumers as well.
“The subscription economy has been gaining traction for some time, with consumers increasingly opting for access to what they need over the burden of product ownership, explains Mishaan Ratan, co-founder of Rentoza. “As one’s life stage changes so do one’s needs, and we want to be able to provide the products our customers need on an ongoing basis without them having to buy these items outright. Ultimately, our offering is about aligning with people’s lifestyles.”
Even more important is the question of affordability and debt management. The subscription model offered by Rentoza also offers South African consumers peace of mind knowing that they won’t get themselves into a debt-spiral trying to pay off items at high-interest rates. “Consumers simply pay an affordable monthly rate, and should they miss a payment, they won’t be blacklisted but the service or product will be revoked”, explains Ratan. “Essentially, the subscription model is one of trust. In our business, there aren’t many who default on their payments because it is what they can afford.”
How Rentoza works
The great news is, with a wide range of products available on the Rentoza website, finding the electronic gadget or appliance you need is incredibly easy. Rentoza is constantly updating its inventory to give consumers access to the latest technology and consumer experience so there’s always something new to discover on the site.
Using Rentoza is simple and easy. You search the Rentoza website for the latest devices and appliances from leading global brands. Once you’ve found an item you want, you choose a subscription term for the selected product, and then activate your subscription by capturing your debit or credit card details for their first monthly payment via Rentoza’s secure gateway. The product is then delivered to your door within 72 hours at no extra cost. Going forward, you are billed automatically on the same day you activated your subscription every month.
