I just came across a Bowflex for sale for really cheap. It made me think about 15 or so years ago when bowflex first came out, and they were so popular, and so expensive. My husband and I decided we needed one. I called the "number on the screen to order" my very own bowflex. I found out ho much it was, and then asked about a possible payment plan. What they told me was they don't have payment plans. Its cash up front. But what gets me is their suggestion that I take out a bank loan to pay for it. I have taken a bank loan twice in my life. Both times was to buy a vehicle. Would you ever consider taking a bank loan out on something like an exercise machine?
