Katapult and Flights

Why use Katapult?

Through lease-to-own, shoppers make recurring payments for the use of the products you have selected, whether that’s a household tool, automobile, or many other products. Shoppers have no long term obligation to continue the lease, and can return the product to Katapult at any point without any further obligation.

It is quick and easy to use Katapult. You can apply at any of the payment provider’s partner stores, either online or in-store. If approved, you will be provided with a Katapult lease purchase agreement limit that can be used to lease to own the product that you’re after. You have the option to acquire ownership of the product that you are leasing. There are lots of reasons why customers love to use Katapult, including:


Katapult will always tell you upfront the total amount you’ll pay, and that number will never go up. There is no interest charged, and there are no hidden fees. Not even for late payments.

Katapult is fair

Shoppers only need to pay a low initial payment at checkout. The earlier you pay off the total cost, the more you’ll save.


Choose when you’ll make your payments. Katapult will ensure that your payment plan aligns with your needs, based on your pay dates.
