Fort Worth, Texas-– Radio Shack is launching its new “R Promise” initiative to offer holiday shoppers services including price matching and new payment options. Radio Shack stores will match prices on identical products from local brick-and-mortar competitors, major online retailers (excluding wireless phones from online retailers) and RadioShack.com at the time of purchase or within 15 days of the purchase.
Also, if a local RadioShack is out of stock on a gift and it is in stock at another RadioShack location, associates ship it directly to the consumer for free. And two new monthly pay programs are now available. RadioShack has relaunched its RadioShack credit card, and the new SmartPay everyday leasing option lets customers get immediate approval to acquire electronic devices and pay for them over time with fixed payments.
SmartPay also offers 90 days same-as-cash and $0 upfront to qualified customers. SmartPay also offers online or mail-in payment options, instead of requiring consumers to visit the store multiple times to make payments.
In related news, ApplePay is now available 900 RadioShack locations across Manhattan, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco, with additional markets to follow in 2015.
