B&H Photo has officially launched their own credit card which offers users a loyalty reward that is designed to counteract sales tax on purchases.
This incentive is meant to set B&H Photos payment option apart from its competitors (namely Best Buy and Amazon) who offer no such payback to customers.
The credit card is available with no annual fee and customers can apply through bhphotovideo.com to receive an instant credit decision. The card is backed by Synchrony Bank with a revolving credit limit for any B&H purchased made online, in-store, or by phone.
B&H Photo CEO, Menashe Horowitz, sent out the following message prior to the office launch of Payboo.
Nearly one year ago, the Supreme Court ruled that out-of-state retailers must collect sales tax on internet sales. This, of course, included B&H. For 46 years we have been committed to providing unparalleled customer service, and so we began the tedious process of implementing a way to eliminate the impact this ruling would have on our customers.
We are now ready to launch “Payboo”, the solution to the sales-tax challenge. Tune in tomorrow for details on how to become a part of “Payboo”!
I know you have many shopping choices for creative gear and consumer electronics, but with “Payboo”, there will only be one best choice: B&H!
I look forward to a continued great business relationship and remember, at B&H, the customer always comes first. That’s why we’ve created “Payboo” to solve the sales tax impact for you.
We have included the Frequently Asked Questions about Payboo below.
