In today's tough economy, being able to order items online now while paying for them later is a convenience many people need. With lay-offs, firings, and downsizing running rampant in this country, websites that offer "buy now, pay later" options are becoming increasingly popular.

If you are looking to make a purchase but cannot afford to pay for it right now, there are certain websites that are worth checking out. One such site is http://www.overstock.com/. With a plethora of items ranging from furniture to jewelry to electronics to books, overstock.com is the place to find virtually anything you need for your day-to-day life. Perks of using this site, in addition to the "buy now, pay later" option, include a flat fee of $2.95 to ship you order, regardless of how many items you purchase, as well as the opportunity to receive advertisements and coupons for the site, directly to your cell phone or via email. In addition, many of the items on the site are sold at clearance prices. Anyone on a tight budget should point his or her browser to overstock.com. You'll be glad you did.



Another website that will allow you to pay for your purchases later is http://www.walmart.com/. This site also offers the convenience of being able to have the item(s) shipped to either your home or the nearest Walmart store. In addition, anyone with a pay pal account can purchase merchandise from the site. It's hard to go wrong when you shop Walmart.com.



Anyone looking to purchase many "as seen on TV" items as well as many unique gifts should go to http://www.harrietcarter.com/. Here you will be able to purchase items now and pay for them later. Harriet Carter is also a mail order catalog, but with the convenience of the "buy now, pay later" option on the site, cyber shopping is the way to go if you're looking to order something from this company.



For all your computer needs, check out http://www.geeks.com/
which also offers the option of buying now and paying later. With quick shipping, friendly customer service, and a wide range of computers and computer accessories, as well as other electronic gadgets, this site is an excellent choice for the technology lover in your life.



A well-known site, http://www.amazon.com/ also gives customers the option of buying merchandise now and paying for it later. However, with this site, the customer must spend a minimum of $199 to get the deal. While this may not suit everyone's needs, it does allow one to purchase many needed items without the burden of having to pay for them at the time of the sale.

For the bride on a tight budget, check out http://www.annsbridalbargains.com/. With a minimum purchase of $150 to use the "buy now, pay later" feature, once again this may not be the ideal solution for all cash strapped brides, but it does offer a way to get the things she needs to complete her special day and allow her to pay for the items later.



Even in this struggling economy, there are ways to purchase the items you need. All it takes is a little perseverance and an Internet connection.
