Ah, picky friends—every group’s got one. It’s your pal that always has the last say on plans, edits the table’s appetizer order, and is incredibly particular about what she’s wearing/watching/whatever. It makes them who they are, yet it’s never more exasperating than when it’s present-picking time. Suddenly, you’re left staring at the entire internet and wondering what the heck would pass muster.

When you use Affirm at checkout, your purchase is divvied up into monthly or bi-weekly payments customized for your cash flow. You’ll see exactly what you’ll owe upfront, without any tricks, complex math, or surprises. See footer for details.
