Oh my god ret a center are some serious jerks and should be shut down! they overprice things and change the payment amts! im a college student taking care of my two younger sisters and my disabled mom and they started to change the amt that was due for the computer at the end of each week to a higher price. and me having no choice to rent one because my job dont pay much where i could buy one. bt anyways since i go to college i have papers due every week seriously and need to do the majority of my work at home because i take care of my family. when i got a chance i looked up the retail price for the computer. the rent a center price was over $4000! bbt it wa only worth $ 400! tell me thats a ripoff!

#1 UPDATE Employee

Riight

AUTHOR: Sparklez - (U.S.A.)

If they were ripping you off you could go back to your paperwork and check the amount of what you are renting. As for the amounts changing, employees don't have the level of authorization to change your total, back to your agreement that you signed *check it*.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Just a thought...

AUTHOR: Courtney - (U.S.A.)

Rent-A-Center caters for the most part to those with bad or little-to-no-credit. Since you are renting to own, the payments are going to be unreasonable due to the interest.

A suggestion to you if you are short on immediate funds might be to go to someplace like Conn's Appliances (do they have those in New York?) and finance one. Yes, you would still be paying interest, but the payments would be monthly and not as high, plus it would build your credit. Another option if you have decent credit would be to go to Dell.com and finance one there - the terms are usually quite reasonable. Or do what I did - go to Wal Mart or the like and get one for $400-500 outright - it's not high-end, but it works for me!

And maybe next time you could take a look-see at your punctuation and capitalization. I don't know what "college" you go to, but when I was at UT Austin, I had to employ these skills when writing papers.
