I’ve been going through rent a center for quite some time with an Acer icona tablet. Had issues with store manager upon servicing it when the screen was cracked one morning upon waking up. Manager told me I couldn’t replace the cracked screen cuz the insurance only covers wear and tere on it. I’m curious as to what the is when pertaining to an item that is touch screen and would get wear and tere. I eventually got it replaced after a long argument, my sexual preference being thrown into the situation by the manager, and the fact he slammed my SD card on the table and crackedat the store locationin the meadowview shoping area of Kankakee Illinois which is where I reside. They replace it but instead with a new one like I was guaranteed to be receiving but with a one the has appsbuilt into it that upon opening are causing it to crash and restart the tablet every time. If this issue isn’t handled the right way this time I’m making it into a legal matter. I will not be screwed out of my money.

It didn’t crack on it’s own lol either you or someone cracked it and he’s right it will only cover wear and tear. That’s like you buying a car and telling the dealership to replace a broken windshield with manufacturer warranty it’s not gonna happen. And second of all why would they give you a new one it should be something similar, you don’t total your vehicle and get a new car lol get real.

I owe 160.00 on a lab top from rent a center. I started having problems with it the same month. So the employee from rent a center gave me another laptop that was supposedly new. That was a joke, just as the employees are. I will no longer do business with rent a center. Anyone thinking of doing business with rent a center, run!!!!!!

Be careful which store you do buisness with in PittsburghPennsylvania. I recommend going to the Mt.Oliver store to deal with a awesome Manager named Angela McCullough. Do NOT go to the south side East Carson street store. It is run by AssClown Jagoffs. They will destroy your property trying to bring in or take out furniture. The associate Eric was like a bull in a china shop ripping apart my wooden banister. His reponse was “My Bad”. And the store manager, Josh, cant multi task whatsoever. Again..go to Mt.Oliver and deal with Angie McCullough only. She cares about customer service and is very professional.

Well i started out with aarons and then went to rent a center, they did beat aarons price on a king bedroom set and before we even signed the lease we were promised that they will ordrer all new for the king set because the set now is all beat up. well now we hear that they dont know if they can give us a new set for the same price. Do you think im gonna fork out all this money for a beat up bed room set? NO iam not so if they dont keep there word on this new bedroom set. I WILL write the worse review out there for the Apopka Fl location. and BTW we where promised the new set by the Manager in the store. we shall see because otherewise they lost a NEW customer. and i will let it be known that they DONT keep there word on something NEW! and i will BE RETURNING to AARONS!

I have been dealing with the rent a center on N young blvd, chiefland, fl for some time now. Since they have changed managers several time along with the staff they have been nothing but rude, especially a employee named Amy. they call me a day in advance to make sure that i will be in to make a payment and they call the day it is due. I spoke to amy on the phone to let them know that i would be in to make a payment and she said that I was already late (which I am not) and that they would be sending a truck out to get the laptop ( i owe $110). I was told from a previous manager that if a certain percent of clients make their payments on time they get a bonus for the month. I will no longer do business with them.
