WhyNotLeaseIt - Lease program

I leased two LG Pedestals back in Dec of 2021; two days later I am returned them became they were not the right size. I am still making payments on it as of today 5/2022. I called Tempoe after returning the items and submitted proof of my return but I am still being charged for it. Needless to say, I have called several times since then requesting them to stop taking money out of my account and requesting a refund; neither of which has happened!

Desired outcome: I would like this company to stop charging me and refund my money!!!

WhyNotLeaseIt - Service, bedframe, mattress.

I would give this -1000 stars if I could. My significant other and I purchased/leased from here and it is a complete nightmare. They charge fees without telling you do not give an overall receipt of your bill. To take autopay off you have to write a letter to the company. The bedframe etc. That we leased is the most horrible quality I have ever had. Amazon has better quality! complete waste of money and scam. They charged my account over $150 in fees that we do not know about. The portal is so basic and just tells you what bill is next that is all.

Desired outcome: REFUND FOR ALL FEES ! RETURN OR EXCHANGE.

WhyNotLeaseIt - Making to many payments

I have two accounts with tempoe, 8C2D921, CCRG7CG I've been paying on them since 2019 I recently called them to see why I'm still paying on them and figured out that I'm only paying about 15 dollars a month on both accounts and they are pocketing the rest. My compliant is that it should have been paid by now. I would like a refund of the money I paid after the purchase prices which was $550 and $350 dollars.

WhyNotLeaseIt - Sears purchased mattress and bed frame

In September 2020, I purchased a mattress financed by this company Tempoe or Why not lease it or there are several names, through a lease to own program set up by Sears. The original purchase was $648.82, my payments were around $120/ month. My understanding was that I would have this account paid off in 6 months or less. However at this point I have paid them WAY more than the original amount I agreed to pay: $1250 & they are still charging my bank account monthly. They also claim I still owe them $350 to end the lease. There is just no excuse for this.
I have suspiciously been unable to access any information about my account with them, despite providing my SSN, until today when I discovered their app and re-registered. I told customer service but they did nothing and when I called them they claimed that they could not locate my account.
This company already has a warning on BBB website for complaints about deceptive business practices. They need to be stopped! I was completely fooled because the purchase originated from Sears & I believed they were a reputable company that would not be involved in this kind of scam.

Desired outcome: Refund

WhyNotLeaseIt - Microwave stove

I bought a miocrowave stove combo from sears hometown store in Marysville, Wa. I went through Whynotlease it, My equipment was scheduled for delivery on Sept 23rd, they rescheduled my delivery to Oct 12th, and cancelled that order(recheduling to Nov 12th), stating they were waiting on the range/stove, but the microwave was in the warehouse. I went ahead and paid off my lease on Oct 16, after I was assured that my products would, in fact, be delivered to my house on NOV 12th, even went so far as to make me go thru a Covid checklist, before the delivery. Sure enough, NOV 10th, came around, and they rescheduled my delivery to Dec 12th, stating they were waiting on the range to be delivered! On Dec 10th, I received a voicemail from the delivery office, stating that SAMSUNG had discontinued my microwave and cancelling the order. When I called back, I was then informed it would be at least another 9 months before I would receive my stove. The decision was made to cancel that order as well. I asked for a refund. Multiple times. I have been told "A ticket has been placed" and someone would be in contact within 24-48 hours, no one has contacted me. No calls. No emails. and no refund! I want my money back! I paid for applianced that were NEVER DELIVERED. NEVER USED. NEVER EVEN SEEN!

Desired outcome: REFUND IMMEDIATELY!

WhyNotLeaseIt - Kenmore refrigerator

Became a participate of the why not lease program September 2019 with a Kenmore refridgerator which cost plus tax close to $1500, we make payment twice a month in the amount approximately $153 each payment. Since inception we have paid out over $3600 and the original lease agreement has been met about 7 months ago. We live in New Jersey and have been told we can not purchase this item because NJ is not in there purchase agreement. Despite this we have been told that this option would be available to us. We would like to keep the item But renting this for 300$ per month seems crazy after we have "basically paid for it more than twice. In this economy and circumstance can't anything thing be done .

WhyNotLeaseIt - Unfulfilled order

I ordered a few Christmas gifts December 10th. I was approved and they took $60 down payment despite advertisement from Sears stating $30 down payment if ordered online. False advertising!

They didn't notify Sears of the lease agreement. I contacted Sears and whynotleaseit several times trying to get one of them to contact the other to get the order fixed. They refused.

Whynotleaseit changed their story several times claiming I had to give them between 24 and 72 hours for Sears to fix it. This is my third lease and my wife has done a lease before also. We never had to wait. It's always been instant. Sears has no order # or knowledge of the order.

I am submitting the $60 charge as fraud to my bank!

I have pretty much the same problem as some of you. I started this lease/purchase 12/02/2018 a $600 television, I have now paid over$2500! I setup the purchase payout in April, they didn't do it. I also sis it 2 more times and nothing. I have set many email off their site and all but 2 were deleted, calling is a joke they blame Kmart and Kmart blames them. this is the worse company I have ever dealt with. I am in contact with my lawyers who will be handling this now. This is not fair for companies to practice this kind of business. I could have had a better deal from a loan shark!

WhyNotLeaseIt - Service

I missed one payment that had not been paid and checked my account they claimed I missed several. Took an UNAUTHORIZED extra 90 over 4 weeks and refused refund. I have called to schedule the payment everytime I have answered them no one is on the other line or have been disconnected and wont hear back from them for several weeks. I asked for a refund because I did not authorize the payment to be taken and she said "well since you wouldnt fix it we had to take it some way what do you expect"

WhyNotLeaseIt - The whole company

This has to be the worst company I have ever encountered. I purchased a tv through them and later got an email from k-mart that the product I ordered was not available and they were changing it to a refurbished model. For the kind of money I wanted a brand new set so I cancelled the order. I called why not lease it that day to cancel and was told 3 business days for a refund. 3 days later nothing so I called again and again and again. I spoke with supposed supervisors and was promised it would handled that day still nothing 2 weeks later still trying to get it cancelled before they charge my card again. I use this company in the past like 8 years ago and did not have any issues needless to say I will not be using or recommending ever again

WhyNotLeaseIt - Washer and dryer

Hi, I am also interested in a class action suit. Through Sears I was talked into a lease for a washer and dryer that I had planned to buy outright. I was told that it would be 11 addition payments on top of the payment I made in store that day back in April of 2018. The gentle explained the 30, 60, and 90 day buy out, but never mentioned the 5 period. I was told at the end of my 11 payments the washer and dryer would be paid in full. My purchase cost was to be a little over $1300.00 and in total I have paid them $2871.40. When I first realized this and called them in the beginning of September 2019, the first man I spoke to just kept apologizing and when I said again I want money refunded to me in a very humorous manor he told me that he could tell me that it would not happen. I have called and spoke with at least 5 different people since then. I also went into the Sears and the manager there contacted them on my behalf. I was offer to be done with the lease and be waved the $512.00 that they said I still owed. I told them I planned on filing a complaint with the BBB and things started to change. I was offer a 5 payment refund. My payments were $102 and change before they then sent me to there customer experience department that you can only leave a message at and hope that they get back to you within 24 hours like they state. It has been a month. After calling again last night and telling them I am going to look into this more the woman went from releasing 5 to 6 payments back to my account immediately. When I told her that a lawyer friend (non-practicing) said to file a complaint and call the media I was told that she could no longer work with me unless I provide said friends name and contact information. I never said I had legal representation. It is to point now that yes I want my money back, but more so it is not right that they keep getting away with this. Everywhere I look people are saying the same thing about this company, that also goes by Tempoe. Please feel free to contact me and put me down for any legal action

WhyNotLeaseIt - Over charging

I haven't checked my credit card statement in a while for details. I recently saw a $179.81 charge for why not lease it, I was supposed to be done payments 3/2019, this was August now. I immediately canceled my card, called why not lease it just to be on hold forever. I'm calling Capitol one later. I get an email from why not lease it saying I have a payment coming up, UM, NO THE F*^% I DONT! I'm not giving them another dime. Stay away, and shame on Sears for misleading. It's no wonder they are closing stores left and right.

Actually both Sears and Why Not Lease it are totally at fault, they are both also guilty and in violation of the Federal Truth in Lending Act or TILA for short. Any company that leases or loans merchandise to their customers must disclose all interest payments and loan details in full. Sears is in violation because they allow Sears Employees to execute these agreements when they barely understand the agreements themselves and they often don't disclose all the information to the customers pertaining to those agreements. Why not lease it is in violation because they are supposed to have an employee on-site to go over the full terms of the lease, they don't. My suggestion to you is to file a complaint with your states attorney generals office as well as your local congressperson. Their practices are basically loan sharking at it's finest.

WhyNotLeaseIt - Kitchen table and chairs

This company is a rip off I ordered a table and chair set from Kmart. Then I see this company wants to charge $200 more than it's worth. Canceled the same day which was on July 30th still fighting to get my $120 back And it is now August 7th. I asked to talk to a supervisor every time they are on the phone so they put me on hold for 10 minutes and I end up not talking to one buyer beware

WhyNotLeaseIt - Washer and dryer

Since day one it's but nothing but problems. Customer service and the way they don't explain payments. Then one payment left and they sent it off to collection agency. Now instead of owing $200 we now owe $1000. I am not happy with this company and will never recommend or use them again. Not to mention the reps don't even know what to do or say and always put you on hold.

WhyNotLeaseIt - Stove

should have done my homework and just went and paid cash for a stove. Im leasing one and now i regret ever getting into this agreement. I will be paying probably almost triple the amount that its really worth. Unbelievable as too why they would even have a program like this is you are just wasting money on leasing and never owning it until you pay it off. Unbelievable never again and i will never recommend anyone to do this program ever.i wish there was a way to sue them.

WhyNotLeaseIt - Monthly payments

We have it set up every month on auto pay. They tell me every month that my payment was declined and yet magically it processes the very next day. So with this the company takes out an additional $20.00 every month. I have called numerous times and all I get is " well that's our policy, when a payment is declined" and every month I have to tell them look on your computer because this happens every single month. Once this is paid I will never use them again.

WhyNotLeaseIt - Television, fireplace/tv stand, surround sound stereo system

I purchased the product in 2012. I had a $800 credit & I paid faithfully every month. I was told that if I paid it off within a certain time that would be all. So I paid it off well I thought I did. I check my credit report & they are saying I owe $755 for that. I received a letter 2 weeks ago & they put it on my credit report in May 2019.So this why not lease is a scam & I thought I was finished paying because I never heard anything from them. The last conversation I had in 2013 was they was gonna send me out a letter stating I owned the merchandise never heard until now. Is there a way I can get this resolved because no one picks up the phone
