Rent A Centerhorrible!

L Review updated:

So my husband and i went to rent a center, only because we had bought my fathers house and had it fully furnished with our furniture, and rented it out and the women who was living there we were evicting, so she stole all of our furniture, but thats another story, so anyway we go to rent a center, get our household items and think that everything is fine, we go in every saturday to make the payment, then saturdays were not working for us so we pay the extra to switch it to Mondays, well we were 3 days late on te payment rent a center had called us on all 3 phones 8 times on each, we are at work it is not neccesarry to call anyone that much, so then we atart getting calls from the people that are are refferences, there calling them now, again and again and again, so we let them know that we would not be available to come down there till the weekend as we had to leave the state for an emergency, as we left our children at home with a babysitter, GUESS WHO SHOWS UP ... RENT A CENTER. Funny after we told them that we were not avail any way the baby sitter answers the door and they say that they nbeed to come in the house right now to remove our items, she said what no you are not, he then proceeds to try to push her out of the way and enter our home, WHAT???????? she says that we are not home and they are not allowed to come in, the rent a center employee then starts peeking in the windows and asking who was sitting on the couch and questioning the baby sitter, so she calls me and i tell her to shut and lock the door and call the police, i call rent a center and tell them that they are doing illegal things and they are no longer allowed to come to my house they said thats fine we will just take this to court you have 2 options were coming now to pick up the stuff or we will see you in court i said fine take me to court, so in the mean time the police go to my house to the frightened baby sitter and say that what they are doing is very illegal and let them know that, i call rent a center again and want to give them my credit card number and he said no we will not except anymore payments from you, i just hung up, then the next day they are banging on my door again and calliong again with a proposal to solve the problem, since then they call every day 18 times a day and stop by all the time i refuse to talk to them and to open the door sometimes it is me and just 2 small children at home and i am afraid that they are just going to enter, every time that they come they see if the door is unlocked and one time they even went to the back door, im am afraid as my husband works noghts and the scarier thing is is that they park down the street so you dont know that they are there. WTF??????? so 3 days ago we got served with a small claims action against us, now since being served why the hell are they calling 29 times a day and stopping by. I am going to let the judge know that this is pure and total harrassment, we have now made 3 reports with the police. Is this ok, or has this happened to you???? Please let me know...
Thank you

    My name is Angela H. And I was looking to right a review about Rent A Center but instead I found this page. And for as much negativity that i see i believe this to be a perfect spot for some positive remarks. I have used the serves at Rent A center in Bradford, Pa for a little over ten years on and off. And as far as service goes it has always been one of the best experiences I have had in a service industry. As anyone I have had several hard times come and go causing financial difficulty where stuff would need to be repossessed but they were always so helpful and caring in making arrangements so as to be able to restore me with there products. Being a single mother with no vehicle they will always pick my payment up for me. And today 2-2-18 Johnny A even took the time to look at and fix the problem with my washer. I have bought several couches, a fridge, and my washed dryers and tvs through them. The prices are always fair and the service remarkable. As with any appliance especially used I have had my share of breakdowns and need to be fixed. And have never had to wait long for maintance or repairs. I love this company because of these employees.

    I have rented from rent a cent, for more than a year now, I make my payments before they are do, If you rent from rent a center it is because you don"t have the money to by it cash just like me bad credit and no money yes we by at your own risk but you have no other options so if you can't pay for it call them to pick it up stop b*ll sh**** about it and if you don't than don't complain about them hunting you down. That's there job.

    On several occasions RentaCenter called third parties and volunteered information about the contract that is current and the status of the monetary value of the contract. They have gone as far as to contact employers about the collections of a contract that is not past due. This is a direct violation of the Federal Trade Commisions Fair Dept and Credit Reporting Act.

    People listen up... they can have you arrested for theft of property so says my local police department(which are a bunch of nut jobs). They can harass you as they are not a debt collector(cannot call and leave message more than once per day) meaning they can call u a million trillion times a day. They can use the path to walk to your door and knock on your door. However, they cannot snoop around your yard or look in your windows or push their way in. That is stalking and trespassing so feel free to have these POS's arrested and as soon as you see them off your property when they start getting out of the truck, may I suggest video taping off your phone. I always paid mine and paid it the 90 days same as cash and would still get numerous phone calls because they didn't make their quota to try to get me to rent to own more crap. When I do rent it's on my terms and I wont rent from the [censored]es in my own. I have the next town over deliver to my mother in laws in that town and then call them and tell them I moved so they don't bother her... not that I would be late on my payment. So the word of advice is make sure u can pay for what u want or don't get it. You do get a decent break when u pay it off in 90 days and do make sure you request a new never used merchandise. Why pay for old if the new price the same anyway. If you think you will fall behind... return it!

    They are the same all over. It must be the way they do business. Getting rich off the poor or non wealthy and having fun harassing you during your contract. Not a fun way to buy or have furniture. They receive 3 to 4 times the value of the furniture by the time you pay for the furniture or they manage to get it back after you get fed up with their poor service harassment and just stat making money on your item all over again. what a scam

    To keep a long 50 complaints short I'll tell you briefly why I will never ever refer them nor use them again.Especially this location.
    1.)My family member had been paying on a laptop an thought at first they were nice so me being on the market for one, I went there to get one for my son.I paid extra for insurance coverage on it.About halfway through paying the screen smashed when it was dropped.I was just going to take it to a repair shop but figured it would be best to check with the store if I need to take it to them to get repaired.Well, as soon as I said to the associate who answered the phone that the screen smashed he yelled at me that he best get his money .Lol, I couldn't believe how either slow or just plain trashy his attitude was.

    2.)They will call you like they are deranged even if you already spoke to an associate that day and let them know you will be in to pay.

    3.)My family member's laptop had 8 more payments because his was a better name and mine had 2 left.Well, I went in to pay it off and mine had 8 payments left and my family member's was paid off.So I don't know if they were entering payments wrong or prison didn't prepare the associates with enough basic skills.I tried to tell them it was a mistake and so did my relative and to both of our surprise they said, "no way that could have happened."

    4.)THIS IS THE ULTIMATE REASON RIGHT HERE TO NEVER GO THERE!!! My boyfriend/reference will usually stop there to make my payment because it saves me a trip because he works right next to them.I had a change in income so I asked an associate to change me from weekly to bi weekly and of course he told me no and to pay late fees each week.Fine...so every day from the weekly payment date to the date I get paid they call daily like they have a case of amnesia and forgot I explained that I will have to be late because they refuse to change my payments.Well, one day they actually went to my boyfriends place of employment to collect payment off of him.HIS NAME IS NOT EVEN ON THE ACCOUNT!!!They knew where he worked from him stopping in for me at times because of his work shirt.His employer called paged him to the front for these ###s!!!He told them to never, ever come to his job.So beware they will show up at a references job or home and embarrass the ### out of you both. Hey, maybe they will even get someone fired or written up that has absolutely no responsibility for the account or payments.

    5.)I was told my Tv was brand new (2012 model) it was paid off there and broke so I looked up the model sn to ask the manufacturer questions and found out it was a model from 2009.So I know for a fact they lie right to your face, I get it they overcharge for garbage because they must figure you are a stupid ### that can't go anywhere else.Whatever, but why lie???Just wrong period.

    SO IF YOU WANNA BE STALKED, BULLIED, EMBARRASSED, HAVE SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU STALKED AND EMBARRASSED, BE OVERCHARGED, TREATED LIKE ### YOU FOUND THE RIGHT PLACE.MY ADVICE YOU ARE BETTER OF NOT GOING BECAUSE I'M SURE THEY WILL CHANGE THEIR POLICY TO HAVE THEIR GUYS JUMP YOU IN A DARK ALLEY FOR PAYMENT...YOU'RE BETTER OFF CURB SHOPPING IN THE TRASH FOR FURNISHINGS THAN GO THERE.TRY AARON'S FIRST AT LEAST!

    We went on 5/21 to check out the deal of the rent a center. We waited b/c they were busy making phone calls to remind people their payments were due or answering phone calls of customers returning calls that their bill was due. Finally one guy helped us but he seemed a little uncertain of the information we wanted. Finally after an hr and half we were signing paperwork for a bedroom set and mattress. He stated the delievery date would be 5/26 between 1 and 5 pm. well its 6:40p and no delievery. Not even a curtousy call to say they would be late. I called at 5p and some nasty guy answered and stated with an attitude they will be there shortly and hung up on me. 6:30p my husband called and wanted to speak with a manager and he could not give us an answer but after 10 minutes on hold said within a half hour. Understandably this is a business for those who really can't afford to go to regular places and pay out right but no one has to be treated this way. My husband took off for what? I will never use this company again and will tell everyone. UNPROFESSIONAL, RUDE AND JUST PLAIN STUPID...

    Guess I was just lucky. I never had any problems with RAC, except for as I was getting close to paying off the items in less than 90 days, they tried to talk me into buying more stuff that I didn't need. I paid off my stuff the day before my 90 days was up, and Im glad that I did cause otherwise I would have paid 4 times the price. Oh, and I inspected ALL the cracks and crevices with a strong flashlight to avoid bedbugs, and all you folks out there would be wise to do the same.

    Went to RAC for two items. I was in an auto accident and waiting for settlement monies. I made the payments on time. Never late...called in October 2010 and asked for the payoff. Was told $900. I asked is this the total exactly? Yes. I again asked if I made my $50 payment I would subtract and owe them $850. Yes. I was talking to the store manager. So I called on December 23, 2010 and was told the payoff was $400. Again, confirmed by the store manager. I then again asked to make my $50 payment I would owe $350.

    So, January 3rd I called and said I want to pay off the $350 I owe. Oh, I was told, the new store manager is here. So he comes on the phone and tells me the old store manager was wrong and I owe $800! I said no, I was told a week ago, I owed $350. Sorry I was told pay the $800 or they would come and get the merchandise. I also asked for an itemized breakdown and was denied a statement of my account.

    So, I paid it off. Plan to file with the SC Attorney General. Rent a Center is a scam!!

    Well to the "proud RAC" worker maybe u should instill your workmanship on over to the employees in Sacramento. I rented a tv last Fri, didn't recieve it till the next Thurs 3 1/2hrs later than promised time. The delivery guys forgot the bolts or something, said first thing the next am he'll hook it up. I called them at noon, said it won't be till 1pm...waited and waited. Called a few times, nothing but excuses...here it is 10:30pm and no fricken tv for me n my family to watch!! They want me to be ontime with my payments, maybe they should be ontime with their 100% satisfaction guarantee promise! Fricken Troy Aikmen said it himself LMAO...

    I know, I know, spending money renting things from rentacenter is expensive but for many years I choose to deal with them. Yes, I did use the 90 day same as cash pay off for several items. I did go past the 90 days on other items but I was dealing with a very sick hubby and only working part-time so it was the easy thing for me, at that time.

    Fast forward to this past spring. I finally paid off everything, owned it all. And thought, ok, end of the endless phone calls, and other annoying habits of rentacenter employees. Then my computer went on the blink and I went back to rentacenter to get another one. Ok, then I added a digal video camera, and was 2 days from finishing paying it off. Yes, I know, but the new manager is just an a hole and insulted me. I "should be able to make a 2 week payment". I can pay once a week, but they insist that thee only good day to bring in my payment is Sat. which is my busiest work day. The one day they close early. So since I didn't have the money to pay for two weeks I gave everything back. Oh, I had my weekly payment, and I will admit it was late, but hey, I work long hours and their customer service phone attitude can really rub me the wrong way. I will be on the phone explaining why I can't come in (i am at work, and can't leave until after they are closed) and as soon as I hang up, a different employee will call, demanding to know when I am coming in! Didn't I just speak to someone who is in the SAME building as you, at the next desk, don't they share the same data base. That is why, they can't figure out how to tell the other person working there, that they just spoke to you and so the next one calls, and then the next one calls, and with each call, I am getting more and more annoyed. Nope, save your money, buy it used, or go without, but don't, I repeat, don't rent it at rentacenter. The whole corp. attitude is their customer, me, you, are all a bunch of lazy no gooders who can't do any better then to rent from them and should be treated like thugs or thiefs if we are a day or two late. Oh, and I really do wonder if they actually pay the state all that resale "tax" they charge each and every week. How much to they put in their pockets?

    I never had any problems with this company and they don't even call me to remaind me to make my payments. I'm renting a new Washer/Dryer from them and i make my monthly payments on the 3rd of every month. Why would you pay weekly? you have more chances of been late. This company gives you the opportunity of getting the stuff that you need for your home... But don't rent 5 sets if you can't afford them.
    Let's keep in mind that this is a "Rent to Own agreement" the merchandise its not yours untill is paid in full...
    If you don't pay your apt rent What happens??? you get evicted... right? when i can't make it to the store i call & i pay over the phone or i just go online and i make my payment. FOR THOSE WHO ARE TRYING TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT WITH THIS COMPANY DON'T BE AFFRAID...MAKE SURE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO AFFORD WHAT YOU ARE GETTING... they even offer 3 months same as cash.

    I entered into a contract for the television with terms 90 days. I understood that I was given two weeks free and was to receive a gift certificate toward another television. Note that I have not received the gift certificate.

    My records show that while I’ve been late on some payments, I’ve paid 90 days. One of the representatives now informs me that I have an additional 90 days because of the late payments and my choices are either to make the payments, return the television, or there will be a warrant out for my arrest.

    First, when you sign that rental agreement you are giving them the right to contact you: by phone, through the references you give, and the right to come to your home. Let's face it, if you are renting stuff, you have bad credit or credit that is bad enough that you can't get what you need (or want) from another source. By renting through places like rent-a-center, it is a silent message that your credit is bad enough; there is a reason for that (late payments or no payments on previous agreements you made with someone else). So, what is a business to do when individuals do not pay when they agree to pay? They give you a call. Sorry we missed you, you can pay by phone and online, why didn't you? Sure you were out of town or whatever, but if you were really going to pay you would have called and say sorry and can I pay my payment online or over the phone. The reason they call so many times a day is to give you the opportunity to keep your stuff. If you ignore them, again what is a business to do? Just let you have it? No, it's a business just like any other. If you don't pay your electric bill what happens? Do they just let you use it up without paying, no they shut it off. Once you decided to go the route of not paying they have a system, and that is calling as much as possible, retrieving the merchandise if possible, and if not sending you to collections. It's all on the rental agreement, look under the section of arbritration (and if I misspelled anything, it is not a sign of unintelligence, just boredom).

    @cindy2007 You are correct and wrong at the same time by law a company has a right to contact you but when it borders on harassment which they do then its illegal. By law if you ask a creditor to cease and desist in calling your job or you then they have to. If your job tells them to cease and desist and they don't then there is a problem.

    leans should be liens
    warrents should be warrants

    You also left out several words that may help your reply make sense but it's doubtful.

    Let's get one thing straight right away, RAC cannot put a lien on your house. It's obvious that you're talking about something that is above your intelligence.
    Harassment is harassment in whatever form it takes.
    There will be no warrants, there may be a judgement though.
    Get a grip and stop talking out of your ###.

    @ImAnAss yes they can. they put a lien on my dads house, and hes never had a rent a center agreement. it was someone with the same name as him, living in the same area. didnt even know it til he went to sell his house, and couldnt because rent a center had a lien on the deed.

    Mail in your payment. The employee's are under tremdous stress to get in past due money. If you were at work and told you cant go home until the customer pays what would you do? It might not seem like a big deal to you to be late but it is to RAC. Job threatened weekly because someone does not pay on time.

  • They are able to come get product if you go past your due date. Most places will let you go up to 30 days before p/u the product.

    If your account goes 60 days in arrears then it gets sent to the legal department & collections. This is were you get told to pay or turn product over. Failure to due so they obtain judgement against you.

    This leads to bank & wage garnishees, house leans, Warrents for you.

    Never let these go to collections because the outcome will haughnt you for lfe.

    To try to get those without credit to "rent to own" and use the current economic situation as a reason to do so, is the most irresponsible advertising I have ever seen. I am disgusted with this company! Do not do it! Do not do it. If you do not have the money or credit to make purchases through normal channels (cash, bank loans, credit cards) you will only make your situation worse by overextending yourself further. This is absolutely crazy! There is a clearly defined line between wants and needs. Be sure that you are only covering your NEEDS during this time.

    Dear Sir,

    I am a store manager with Rent A Center and I would like to offer you some suggestions. From my experience there are three possible reasons why it may have taken so long:
    1. The vendor may have been backed up on that particular part.
    2. The store may have forgotten to order it for a week or two or
    3. A mixture of both.

    My suggestion is that you talk to the store manager. Ask him or her to find that same dinnette in another store. If another store has that particular dinette they could go to that store and get it, and give you the piece that you require, and the store could just be short that piece until the vendor gets them a replacement.

    If you have only had the dinnette a month or two you could ask the manager to order you a brand new one and then switch it out for the one you have when it comes in.(no new paper work would be required other than a reciept just stating that the item was switch-out.)

    On behalf of the company I apologize for the inconvienence you have experienced. If you have any questions please message me. I would be glad to help as best as I can.

    RAC Store Manager

    I contacted Rent-A-Center located in Watertown, New York on November 1, 2008 regarding a replacement for a leather dinning room bench chair that was still under warranty as. Please note that i have made all payments monthly totaling $234.00 and they didn't even have the decency to contact me regarding the status of the replacement for a two month period. I had to call them in order to receive updated information. Today i am frustrated and bothered beyond belief. Today is January 19, 2009 and i just received the wrong item, so now they expect me to continue making payments as well as wait another two months for the right replacement. I am so serious, this place must be crazy as hell if they think i will EVER do business with them ever again after this. I also will not make another payment until services are rendered and i dare them to come to my house and think they are going to remove anything from my house since i have invested too much in this purchase.

    I also have contacted Corporate Office in regards to this matter, so i am expecting a call back from them.
