    Rent-A-Center gets pretty crazy if they don't get their payments. First you get all those annoying calls, then they start tacking on all kinds of charges, then they will harass you if you don't pay what was missed plus the crazy fees. In the end it is just cheaper to buy the product outright. Their service sucks.

    I heard that. I took back a netbook that I rented for vacation after one month's rental. I couldn't stand all of the phone calls and charges. It would have cost me four times what I would have paid outright!

    Rental agreements always cost you more than buying an item outright. But on the plus side, you don't have to deal with servicing and repairs yourself so you may well save money there.

    I always paid on time, but then my son got an account with Rent-A-Center and somehow they linked our accounts together. I NEVER told them they could do this. When he did not pay, they starting calling me non stop too. My payments were not late but because my son had not paid his account they forced me to pay in full right then and there. What a scam, they lost a customer that day.

    ehana, that's just wrong! They should not be able to get away with charging YOU because of what someone else does (or doesn't do)! I don't blame you for closing your account with them! I would have, too!

    I think it is just best to avoid companies like Rent-A-Center all together. Unless you are just renting for a party or something, if you are renting to own, then it is best to do with out the item while you save up for it. You pay so much more for these sorts of things when you rent to own them. I know it sucks, but instant gratification is way more expensive then patience and determination. Companies like this just make their money off of people who need instant gratification, I urge you not to be one of these people.
