On last year I needed to purchase a new Washer & Dryer as well as a New Couch and Loveseat. The washer & Dryer were on sale for 579.00 The chairs were at another store priced at 879.00 and they were supposed to take another $100 off because one of the couches had a long scratch on it.
When I went in to purchase I told the representative that I was ONLY interested in 90 days same as cash. All the while I'm thinking that I am financing thru the store....they have ACCEPTANCE NOW posted in the store...I did NOT KNOW that this is RENT A CENTER posted up in reputable stores as an in-store lender. I continued asking when could I pay the balance off....I was told that I could not pay it off before the 90 days but in a short period of time they will let me know when I could pay them off. It would have been no problem at all for me.
approaching the 90th day I went in both stores to get the pay off amounts, I was told that I couldn't pay AGAIN. So when I went to make my payments I was finally told that I had passed the 90 day mark and now I'm locked in to renting the furniture for 24 months...literally tripled the price of what I was quoted. TRIPLED.
I was forced into that contract and I will NOT pay any longer and I have paid the price for what I was originally told... a number of other people I have ran into online have the same story...I am looking into bringing a class action suit against them.
Reason of review: FRAUD FORCED INTO CONTRACT.
