I want to know how this company can get away with charging me so much with no having no knowledge of it. The bedroom set was $1800.00 after all my payments it is gonna cost me $5179.00.

How is this legal? I never heard any of this when I was signing the papers. I am really thinking about hiring a lawyer. This is ***.

When I called they said, I am renting the bedroom set, till it's paid off, Are they kidding me? Does anyone else have this problem? I am so confused how they think they can get away with this.

Any comments will help, please please. Now I have to keep writing

My purchase of a 3 piece living room set and a 99.00 rug was 1199...They are charging me that plus fees and interest I just got it. With the final total being 2686.00 almost 3,000.00.

A total RIP off. The furniture is not worth all that.ive only had it a month and plan on giving it back because this is a scam.

I dealt with this company thank God I’m done I was the same way that insurance you can’t use it the price of the furniture each time u make a payment you are recharged the tax every month if your total is 3000.00 each month you pay the same tax even though you paid it the first time. I don’t know if you know this but you sign a paper for arbitration which mean there will be a neutral person who would decide the case you can’t participate in a class action law suit against them

Acceptance now is so BS! I purchased a sectional sofa and the original cost is $1074.00!

I was asked to put a down payment fee (rental agreement) of $400.00 and I still $1600.00.

When finish paying for this furniture it will cost me at total of $2,473.00. This is absurd this company is taking advantage of people and must stop today!!!

I just got off the phone with the store manager....It apologies to me saying that they changed their policy....I told him that it doesn't matter...If you don't notify your costumers and give them the option to agree with the terms...You are actually creating fraud..Cause! you know that you are going to sock it to them with the 10.00 per mo.

after they signed the paper work...So, it doesn't look too high at the time of signing..... So, once you got them into an agreement. You later add the 10.00 cause most likely its a little harder for them buy into your lip service agreement. Again!

how much of that 10.00 is for my T.V insurance? Its a rip off... My apartment insurance for (2) T.V, Stereo, Appliances, furniture and all is under 22.00 per month.

So, to have RAC, charge a whole 10.00 for only (1) tv is highly questionable. This all spells a Class Action Law Suit.

I have the exact same problem and I now have found out many others do. However no class action is allowed you probably presigned 3rd party arbitration papers at the time of purchase

I just found out that RAC, was charging me $10.00 extra per. month on this insurance thing?

I miss placed my contract for over a year until now. My monthly payments where suppose to be 108.53 instead they have been charging me $118.53. I noticed it the very first time they told me that I was being charged the 118.53 it was last year...A lady name Michelle, said to me that it was due to the billing cycle and taxes... So, I went along with it without any further questions?

Until now. That's 240 more they are trying to get from me....I truly wonder how much they are keeping in regards to the 10.00 ?

perhaps 5.00 and the other 5.00 is going to the insurance company...SO, if you X's it by the 1000's of customers who actually signed on board....that's a lot of money.... Also, I didn't sign up for it as well......They sure do have a lot of explaining to do.

I’m going through the same issue right now. The lady gave me a signature pad which was blank and told me what I was signing for.

She said,” you will make these 198 dollar payments until the bed is paid up in a year that’s with all fees.” I signed... a year has gone buy and the manager showed me some contract I never seen or signed.

I should of asked for papers that day I signed up but didn’t think a. Company like that would something like blindside people

Semi-legal predators.... they don't properly explain that it's a rental.

They're saying "interest" & "rental fees" at the same time. No one gives you that moment of clarity until it becomes a rental not fully understood by you. A year after our "alleged rental agreement" started only about $300 went towards the purchase when about $2600 was paid (now far more than the original cost w/ tax). If I want out I now have to instantly find $1800.

They should be made to show you what the total bill will cost that day if it's not paid in 90 days. I didn't know how much the total cost was until my credit report was pulled months later and I couldn't explain the $6000+ that I owed someone. But predators prefer to rob the poor. They're the best customers.

I pray it's one of those companies that go under for bad practices. Bottom line NO THEY ARE NOT UPFRONT NO MATTER WHAT THEY TRY TO CLAIM.

Saving is Cheaper Than Financing

90 Days Same as Cash Explained

When the store promises "90 days same as cash," they're essentially promising you no interest payments for 90 days. In a perfect world, you'd be able to finance the purchase then pay off the balance in 90 days.

You'd never pay a cent in interest. It'd be just like paying with cash. In the real world, it doesn't work like that.

It seems like there's no reason not to take a 90 days same as cash deal. You get to walk away with your merchandise and a promise to pay back the money over the next few months.

Without taking a close look at your income and expenses, you may even assume you can afford to pay off the balance within 90 days.

Unfortunately, it doesn't always work out that way. More likely than not, you won't pay the balance within 90 days and you'll end up paying interest on the purchase. If you were able to pay off the purchase in 90 days, then you'd be able to save up and make the purchase in three months, avoiding the gimmick all together.

How to Lose Your Interest-Free Days You might rationalize that it's ok if you don't pay off the balance in 90 days. You'll just pay as much as you can and after that you'll deal with the interest.

Here's the gotcha. The 90 days same as cash finances is a type of deferred interest financing arrangement that only works for your benefit if you pay off the balance in 90 days. If your balance isn't paid in full in 90 days, the interest is backdated to the date of the purchase then added onto your balance.

So, you see, you only get 90 interest-free days if you pay the balance in full during that time. Otherwise, you haven't gotten the interest-free benefit at all.
