K&Co, also commonly referred to as K and Co is an online home shopping catalogue in the UK that is part of the Shop Direct group. Newly opened in 2011, K&Co was developed with the help of over 100 successful years of home shopping experience and brings together some of the most popular UK online shopping catalogues including Empire Stores, Great Universal and Kays.
What’s better is that K and Co was inspired by their loyal customers who are sick and tired of online home shopping catalogues with their ‘one size fits all’ offerings and appallingly high prices. With this in mind, K&Co brings its customers the latest trends in all sizes imaginable; from size 6 to yes, size 32, as well as a range of plus size, petite and tall size options.

K & Co Rewards Programme
When you open a credit K account, you will instantly be a Silver rewards member where members will start earning 5% rewards on purchases of £20 and above. When you shop each season, you will be promoted to the next reward level of 7.5% Gold on your continuous 3rd and 4th shopping season, and 10% platinum on your continuous 5th shopping season.
For redeeming your rewards, you just have to spend them the next time you order from the shopping catalogue. Simply indicate the rewards amount you want to use when you order via the online checkout or by phone.
To maintain your reward level, you have to shop every season so that your level will not be dropped to a lower reward level.
With the Spread the Cost programme of K and Co, you can choose to ‘spread the cost’ of absolutely anything you purchase interest free for over 20 weeks. In addition, for purchases £80 and above, you are allowed to spread the cost interest free for over 52 weeks. To illustrate, let’s say you purchase a £85 dress, you are only required to pay £4.25 weekly for 20 weeks or £1.63 weekly for 52 weeks.
Additionally, for more expensive items such as electronics and home furnishings and appliances, you can spread the cost for 2 to 4 years with a 32.9% annual percentage rate (APR). As an example, say you purchase a £219 camera, you only need to pay £2.26 weekly for 156 weeks.
The spread the cost programme is also applicable on selected products where you can spread the cost for 5 years with a 19.9% APR.
