#7 UPDATE Employee

for mimi

AUTHOR: Happy Employee - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, January 05, 2008
This is for mimi. What you are speking of is your early purchase option. The total amount 100% of rent paid (not including optional liabilty waiver fees, taxes, or RAC benefits if a member) goes towards you total cost. A better way to explain the early purchase option is in your case and it may differ from state to state, is if you decide to pay your merchandise out early and are no longer in your 90 day same as cash period you can still pay out early by payment of 45% of your total remaining payments. It may have just been explained to you wrong which seems to happen with inexperienced coworkers. Hope this helps your understanding of your early purchase option. Thank you and happy renting!

I also agree that the store manager seems out of line. If you cannot talk to him because of your work schedule, at least slip a note through the door stating your situation, and what your plan is to resolve the account. As far as the legal situation, state laws vary, but unless the situation goes seriously past due, or an employee feels threatened or views illegal behavior, you have nothing to fret over. Police officers do not want to be viewed as a collections agent unless absolutely required. With the great pay history you have, I do not understand the manager's actions. Best of luck.

rent-a-center is ripping me off too

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

POSTED: Monday, November 05, 2007
Can they really take your entire payment and only credit 45% of it to your total payout price and pocket the rest?

Agree

I agree with you that the store manager was out of line with his comment. If your pay history was good previously, then they should have no problem helping you with an extension to get you on track on your pay period. Ask for his market manager's phone #(quicker than corporate's #) and request to be put on you pay period. (BTW I work for RAC).
