Interest Free Purchasing

You can buy discounted digital devices on a repayment plan through our DigiConnect program.

SGCH buys the agreed product on your behalf (details below), you get to take it home on the day you sign the repayment plan, and then you pay SGCH back through installments across one year – just the cost of the item, no interest.

Apply Now

Who can apply?

Applicants must:

  • have been an SGCH customer for at least three months
  • not be in rent arrears or debt with SGCH
  • be able to make the minimum repayments over one year
  • be prepared to sign a repayment agreement with SGCH.

How does it work?

You apply using our online form and tick which of the packages you want to buy. SGCH keeps a small stock of each item, so once we have had time to process your application, we will contact you to arrange for you to pick it up and sign your repayment plan on the same day.

When will applications open?

Applications for DigiConnect are always open, and we process them during the work week.

How much would my repayments be?

We require repayment within a year. Your minimum fortnightly repayments depend on which package you choose and also how you want to make the repayments. Please see the table above.

How do I work out if I can afford the repayments as well as my rent?

There are some great free budgeting tools available that help you work out if you can afford the minimum repayments for DigiConnect, like this Money Smart planner.

Can I fill out a paper application for DigiConnect?

I can’t afford the minimum repayments for DigiConnect. Are there any other ways I can get help affording digital tools?
