UK retailers set for 24-hour discount with Laybuy
Laybuy, the interest-free buy now, pay later platform, has announced an exclusive day of deals for UK customers later this week.
"Laybuy Mania" will take place for the first time ever in the UK throughout the day on Thursday 30 April 2020, giving customers access to 24 hours of heavily discounted items.
The day will see some of the UK’s biggest and most well-known retailers, including the likes of JD Sports, boohoo and The Hut Group, offer an extensive range of exclusive discounts to those opting to pay by Laybuy during the one-off 24-hour window.
Laybuy allows shoppers to purchase an item by only paying a sixth of its cost upfront and paying the rest in equal weekly instalments with no financial penalty for doing so.
To qualify customers must first undergo a credit check with Experian after which they are given a spending limit.
Laybuy Mania, which ran in New Zealand and Australia in 2018 and 2019, will run in the UK for the first time ever in 2020, marking just over 12 months since Laybuy’s UK launch.
Examples of discounts available include:
• JD Sports offering a £15 gift voucher, with spending of £80 or more (code – LAYBUY)
• boohoo offering 30% off all purchases, excluding sale items (code - LAYBUY30)
• Footasylum offering 15% off all purchases (code – LAYBUYMANIA)
• lookfantastic offering 15% off selected brands (code – LAYBUY)
Gary Rohloff, Co-Founder and MD of Laybuy said: “Laybuy has always strived to provide consumers with true flexibility in the way they spend, as well as enabling them to access the best possible offers at short notice by spreading the costs at the point of purchase.
"Laybuy Mania is a great opportunity for all our customers to take advantage of some amazing promotions outside the typical shopping season peaks.”
In February 2020, JD Sports announced its partnership with payment service Laybuy to allow its UK based customers to utilise its buy now, pay later service.
