Sooo my mothers birthday is coming up on the 21st and she wants a Ipad for her birthday..so i told her i would buy one( i only make a little over $11/hr so moneys tight) and i need a new boat cover and they both cost about the same ..$400..i just realized i can do monthly payments on the ipad from Best Buy, so im thinking get the boat cover and just pay monthly for the Ipad..oorrr should i just buy the Ipad and wait on the boat cover (FYI i have been out of a boat cover for almost a year now and i use a tarp..i know its dumb)

moto - If the tarp is doing its job of keeping the boat dry and protecting it from the sun, then skip the new cover for another year. Pay cash for the Ipad. Figure out what the financing charge would cost you and apply that money to the new cover. - Deerfield

Momma first, grab the iPad. BUT, my best buy card is 0 interest 6months so you might be able to make both work!

Buying something like an iPad on credit is a silly idea. Get your mom her gift. If your tarp is doing the job then save up and buy the cover later. Be financially smart.

Pretty much agree with all that was said above. If the tarp is working, keep using it and get momma taken care of. Maybe shoot for the end of the season for the cover so you can get all locked down for the winter months.
