Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

This company says it is only for govt or military workers. It requires you to start an automatic payment, called an allotment in the military. It requires you to fax the allotment verification and your pay stub to them. It then tells you you have an account.  They send you a packet expaling all the rules and requirements. What they dont tell you is you have to have a minimum yearly income of $20,000 or they deny you AFTER you have done everything they asked and you are expecting to get the item you ordered. They set up a credit limit for me and then they denied me. Once they deny you, you have to go through the trouble of stopping the allotment you have already started.

AUTHOR: Matthew McGinley - (USA)

Purchasing Power is nothing BUT a ripoff.  To the complainant: you should be grateful that this ripoff company turned you down for "credit," because in doing so they saved you hundreds or thousands of dollars that you would have had to pay for the convenience of the monthly deduction. They try to push their service on our company, it is is the largest of its kind in the United States, and Purchasing Power specifically targets poor people. Think about it: people who are well off financially do not need credit at all.  Purchasing Power executives, knowing this, make the products they sell attractive because they advertise the payment amount; e.g., $15 a payday sounds better (and cheaper) than $329, and they say, we'll ship it to you now (and sometimes they include the shipping as an even greater enticement.

My only warning is simple: DO NOT BUY ANYTHING OR ENTER INTO ANY CONTRACT WITH PURCHASING POWER. If you cannot afford what you intended to buy, then either don't buy it, buy it with a normal credit card, or save money to buy it, but don't end up paying FOUR or FIVE times retail just to have it now!
