Will my Peloton purchase affect my credit score?
No, purchasing a Peloton will not impact your credit score. If you choose to finance your Peloton a soft credit check will be done by Affirm, Peloton’s financing partner. A soft credit check will not affect your credit score, even if your Peloton purchase is not approved. The process of pre-qualifying takes minutes and only requires you to enter a few details.
What information does Affirm need before I purchase?
To see if you qualify for monthly financing, Affirm will need you to confirm the following pieces of information. This will allow the company to check if you are eligible for a Peloton purchase. It is important that you enter these details correctly.
- Full Name
- Social Security Number
- Pre Tax Income

Can I pay off my Peloton purchase early?
Yes. You can pay off your Peloton quicker by making a payment anytime via the Affirm app. The option to “make a payment” in the app means that you can pay for your Peloton bike or treadmill at anytime. There is no extra fees or penalties for pre-payments.
The flexibility offer by Affirm to pay the minimum repayments interest free or pay for your Peloton in larger lump sums is one of the most appealing reasons to purchase your Peloton with Affirm financing.
Is it better to purchase with a credit card?
The main advantage of purchasing with a credit card is the ability to receive cash back from your purchase. Some people choose to take out a new credit card with 0% interest and a favourable cash back rate to purchase a Peloton.
While this has its benefits it is important to remember that most credit cards will have an interest free period of up to 20 months. After this period the interest rate can be extremely high. Affirm financing allows interest free payments up to 39 months. If you are confident you can make the repayments within the interest free period and would like cash back then purchasing with a credit card may be a good option for you.
