"Put (something) on the cuff" = Mua cái gì và hứa trả tiền sau, cho vay/cho nợ, mua chịu.
I got a phone from the US. My cousin helped me put it on the cuff. They give you a credit card and you have to pay it off over a specific time. That way I didn’t have to spend all that money at once. I am gradually paying it off.
“If you have to put it on the cuff it means you cannot afford it. With so many deals available on Black Friday, it is important for consumers to know exactly what they want to purchase and how much they are prepared to spend. Have a plan, have a budget and stick to it.”
And that, he says, forces us to make big decisions: Do we choose to buy something with the money we’ve made, which is often a choice not to buy something else; or do we prefer an experience – which also costs, but in a different way. If you choose to purchase, will you have time to fully enjoy the item? If you put it on the cuff, what’s the cost of your time to fill out the application or wait on the phone with customer service?
