The 12 months budget plan has interest on every purchase made with the Sportscene account, while the 6 months budget plan does not charge any interest on purchases made with the account. In addition, account owners can protect the credit they have accumulated on their accounts by enlisting customer protection insurance, typically offered to all account owners. While this insurance is optional, it covers permanent disability, loss of income, temporary disability, and death.
