my experience with rent a center, was I purchased a refrigerator I paid it off. Then it started leaking water I had to argue with them to replace it and give me a loaner. Even though I was paying insurance. They finally agreed to give me a loaner so they picked my up and brought me a loaner. They kept mine for 4 weeks. I began so see a few roaches in my house, and then when they picked up the loaner there were roaches coming out of the refrigerator. Now I know were the roaches were coming from. Mind you I never had roaches before. Also my refrigerator when they brought it back looked like it was sitting outside somewhere. It took me two hour to clean it, also I had dents and scratches all over my refrigerator. Now I have to spend money on an exterminator, so disgusted. Just sharing my experience and noting that I will never deal with rent a center again..

Currently talking to a lawyer about a lawsuit for using illegal collection practices. I was in the hospital due to issues with my pregnancy. I was gone maybe a 2 weeks. I was renting a ps4 and tv. I come back apartment was broken into they stole everything but the it guessing it was to heavy. I told them. I was told thats fine just pay the past due of 65 and give us the police report and that will take care of that. Give them the police report 65 dollars in hand while he is pulling up my accounts he says I owe 765 for the ps4. I told him why do I have to pay for the ps4 when I had the protect plan you know if its lost or stole. They said it wouldnt cover it. I told them I wasnt paying it and to send me to collection. Bryan the manager there starts threatening me and using profanity. I will never own anything ever again in my life. He not doing a write off. He gonna garnish all my checks. He does thus for a living he knows how to get what he wants. He gonna take my car etc. I told them not to contact me anymore or come to my property. Another employee came to my house forced his way into my apartment claiming he was looking for property when I dont have any of there property as they came and got the tv. Today employee comes. Wouldnt open the door told him to leave my property or I was gonna call the cops he told me to go ahead he woud love for me to call the cops. They are rude, and ignorant. My first time with rent a center and will be the last.

I went into this establishment Rent-A-Center to purchase a living room set, I sign a contract stating that I had 90 days same as cash to pay it off. When they came to deliver the furniture in the process of bringing it in the house the delivery guys damaged the sofa. They noticed it and stated for me to call the manager at the store and so I did, The manager stated that they will repair it or replace it, I waited almost 3 months for them to come and finally replace it or repair, They brought me a sofa that was different than the one that I had, so they stated they will have the original one repaired, after waiting almost 3 weeks they bring back not repaired. I went and call the manager to state that I would like them to come and get the furniture and give me a refund. The manager stated we can’t give you a refund because it’s already paid off and there’s nothing else they can do…REALLY I was livid because I kept my end of the contract and now your establishment isn’t keeping yours. I hung up the phone to calm myself down, call back to get the manager name that I spoke too. The associate name Chris stated he’s not sure who I spoke with and all the manager are gone home for the day, now I literally called back within 5 minutes and the associate hung up the phone. When I got to work I called the Corporate office located in Texas and I was told that a Mary Hazel will be contacting me, haven’t heard from her yet. In the process the manager Christian Treving call me and left a msg on my phone, I called him back and still trying to remain calm he stated that a refund is out of the question(first and foremost)….REALLY and he stated that the sofa had some defects that’s why it was on the 90 days same as cash, I told him I understand but the defects that were on the couch came from the delivery guys and that those defects weren’t on there when I came into the store to purchase it. He proceed to tell me that I could just keep the temporary sofa that I have I explain to him that its not the same model of the set I purchased. He said only thing he could do is send it back to the warehouse and see if they could patch it up….REALLY I have been professional and extremely patient and I don’t think this is fair to me. I kept up my part of the agreement and I paid for something that wasn’t damaged. I wouldn’t recommend purchasing anything from this company…..

About a month ago we had to get the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 serviced the charging port no longer worked. Well my husband didn’t realize my memory card was still in the tablet. I called the store and told them and they said that the service department won’t touch it. They had my tablet about a month. I called a few more times and still was told they won’t touch the memory card. Well I get it back last night and would you look at that my memory card is gone it may not be a big deal but I have all my daughters baby pictures on there.. So frustrating.

I never write reviews, but this time I think it is warranted. This is my first time renting from rent a center and it is the worst experience of my life. I rented a bed from them because I just moved to a new apt and I am expecting a baby and couldn’t sleep on an air mattress. when I ordered the bed they sent the mattress first because the headboard was not in the store . now I have 2 separate agreements and it seems as though I am making 2 separate payments. When I go online to pay my bill there are 2 agreements numbers with 1 bal. for some reason the store keeps calling me telling me that I am behind on a payment . They are very rude when they call and seem to have no type of customer service skill. I don’t understand how my balance is one price online and then another when they look up my acct in the store. To me it sounds fishy. even the amounts on the contracts do not add up to the amount this lady is trying to charge me via phone. I was told if I pay a past due balance of $140 it will bring my acct current and she can fix it online .. what do u know I paid the 140 and paid the $71.79 that my balance always shows online and she called again telling me I was past due in payments. It is outrageous and I feel like they are trying to rip me off. Then she tells me she can not wait until I get paid, that is not how you speak to a customer for 1 and for 2 how do you expect a payment if my original agreement was set for semi monthly payments. thank goodness I print my receipts off line and I have my contracts.

i am actually contacting you on behalf of my mother. she rented a acer aspire 17.3, but it was too hard for her to use so three days later she took it back and got a regular acer computer. when she went to pay the next payment she asked for a copy of her new agreement. they said they didn’t have it. ask next time. that was in june 2013. she still has not got one. she has paid 32 two week payments.of 52.98 not counting tax. the reason she is concerned is that a few weeks ago she asked how many pymts were left. first they said she had 10 weeks left, two weeks later she had 12 weeks left. this week when she paid they said she had 7 more payments which would bring it to 14 weeks. please advise the approximate price of these computers and does this sound right thank you Cindy Oxendine.

They have poor customer service and they advertise one price on line and charge you something different when you actually get the merchandise. Then when I called to do a price match they said the other store had it for a longer term but never offered to match the price. I have been a customer for over 10 years and have tried to give them chance after chance but now I am going to send my merchandise back and rent with Aarons. I know I will be happy with them.

I worked for RAC for about 2 months, was hired as a Assistant Manager, now with the hours being cut and me still having the same bills I made the decision to look for another job, as a professional I gave the company my 2 weeks notice, as it turns out, in the state I live is ok to just let go of your employee who, i mentioned , is doing nothing but the right thing. Credit at my location was bad, floor appearance was not the best. Customer weren’t treated properly. I worked my butt off every day just like you, they don’t see your hard work, they see you as another furniture in the store that they can use and throw away when they don’t need you anymore, because as quoted by my DM, WE DON’T NEED YOU. I have 2 kids and mouths to feed because my other job doesn’t start yet, just 2 more weeks till I do. All this time I was working for a self centered company where they USE you and when don’t NEED you well, you know the rest. Oh almost forgot, this was the DM and RM together. I feel let down and used. Never expected this from this company.

I work for RENT a CENTER for over 6 years and worked my butt off since day one. I got promoted to Lead Assistant and was proud that I was making my way up with salary. Now that the company has cut hours, I’m in a loss of over 50.00 a week, tthat’s over 200.00 a month that I’m losing. So much for working my ass off for nothing, I feel like I was spit on and betrayed by the company. Never again will I show my dedication and hard work.

DON’T EVER USE THESE PEOPLE!!! They charge you mote than they say. They tell you a certain amount of payments then when you make that amount of payments they tell you that you still owe more. Then, even after you show them all the payments on your bank statement they still want you to pay. When you refuse they start calling all of your family and friends and harassing them. They tell your family and friends that they are responsible for your debt (which you don’t even owe) and they call them 3-4 times a day.

I am very disappointed in the wonderful new “improving the quality of your employees’ life” changes you have made. You gave out pay raises and then cut hours which ended up being a $40.00 per week pay cut (more per hour, but less overtime pay) and not getting any more home time when it is needed. Thanks AGAIN FOR SCREWING THE PEOPLE THAT ARE MAKING YOU THE MONEY.

Good Day,
I am a long time customer for many years with Rent-A-Center in good standing. My payments go to the Pennsylvania Ave location in Brooklyn NY. I recently experienced some hardships along with a death in my family (my brother on 7/30/14) as well as some health issues (cardiac) I am now on a Beta Blocker. While i am not looking for any sympathy it would be most appreciated, as i have requested and been denied, if Rent-A-Center would accept my payment toward my past due balance of $150 until my next pay period 8/28/14. After speaking with the Brooklyn representative Mr. Lloyd, i was advised my outstanding balance is $400. Mr. Lloyd stated that my account could remain open if i pay $219. Please understand due to the issues i have mentioned above…i, in good faith, offered to pay $150 which i have available. Mr. Lloyd stated he cannot accept that payment and that full payment was required. I am writing this note in hopes of my account being reviewed and receiving approval to allow the $150 payment to be made. I am a responsible single parent of 4 and i do my best to be accountable for my bills…I do not want bad credit nor do i want a bad relationship with Rent-A-Center. I appreciated the purchase/payment plan its really just a difficult time for me and my family. I do have proof for documentation of the issues i mentioned all taking place in the end of July and the beginning of August. Is there anything that can be done from your corporate office that would allow me to make this payment of $150 to keep the items i am paying for while i continue to make payments as contracted. $150 is all i have until 8/28/14. Can Rent-A-Center accept that from me at this time and would you?? Please let me know, it would be most appreciated if you would respond. Thank you for your time and consideration. Call me if necessary 347 435-xxxx (cell)….again, thank you.

MARLON from the Rent A Center store on 10020 W. Flagler Street, Miami, FL 33174; is the MOST uneducated, unprofessional sales associate I have ever delt with. I have rented countless of times from different Rent A Center stores, and I have NEVER been harassed the way I get harassed from this particular store. They dont even wait until the next day from your payment due day to call for the payment; and on the third day of being late on your payment, they start harassing your references. They dont even wait for you to be a week late to send someone to your house to pick-up the merchandise. This has been by far the WORST experience I have ever had with any store ever. Marlon is very nice at first when he’s trying to sell you into stuff, but once you sign that contract, boy, he has no mercy if you’re having a difficult week and cant make the payment on time! So with this being said, if you’re in need of anything, and need to rent from a Rent A Center store, do your self a favor and save yourself from having to deal with very Nasty, Rude, and Ruthless people and DO NOT RENT FROM THAT STORE!!!!!

I already sent a complaint to the local store and I am so angry over this entire mess. I purchased the buyer protection plan when I signed the rental contract for my Whirlpool Cambrio set of a washer and dryer. I paid it off after almost a year. I have paid additionally for the buyer protection plan after this set was paid off to continue and have received shoddy service. We contacted the local store about the dryer shutting off and not drying the clothes. They sent two guys out to the house that for one acted like they didn’t care about their job and for two, didn’t do the job to find out why the dryer was doing this. They put one shirt that was damp into the dryer, started it and once the dryer heated up, they pronounced it as not having a problem and left. The dryer still doesn’t work right. I shouldn’t have to keep restarting the dryer to dry the same load. My husband went in the store again today to complain and they tried to make him pay for additional dryer rental. He had to bring in the certificate of ownership to prove that we didn’t owe anything even before they would talk to him. He told them that these guys didn’t examine the dryer with a test load against it and just left. These people in the local Cape Girardeau, Mo location act like they don’t know what they are doing either. They can’t even credit payments and try to take money from people who have already paid off their appliances as well as give excuses as to why they won’t do the work on the appliances when one has paid for the buyer protection plan. I’m filing a complaint with the local BBB about their shady business practices as we have gotten no satisfaction from them. I will now have to pay someone else to look at the dryer that I worked hard for over a year paying off just so this company can take people’s money and cheat them. I am very unhappy and this is so wrong!

I have never in my life been so insulted in my life!! Last week I sent a friend I to thestore with my payment, cause I refuse to go in because all the problems in the past, they told her that they would hold the payment till they spoke to one of us, and now they have no record of it figures so the store manager Maria puts me on the phone with the district manager Lisa who was even more rude than the manager, so Lisa asked aboutthe receipt and I told her that they did not issue one since they didnt credit the money to the account yet and I told her they never give receipts any time we pay in person so she told me I was a liar and that shes not going to listen to my lies and called me a liar once again and laughing and being snotty the whole time, real professional right?! So after hanging up on her I called the corporate office in plaino texas told themwhatwas going on, after 30 mins on the phonewith them they proceed to tell me that they cant do anything except send the complaint to the district manager! So they are going to send the complaint to the person the complaint is about?! What a joke…

I was in the process of moving from aurora Il to the city of Chicago being that it was my first time renting to own furniture I went rent a center in aurora Il and I saw the bedroom set I wanted which had a set price 650 plus the used mattress and box frame which was 100 which brought my total to $750 they told that they could deliver to that area so they would have to send to another store in downers grove IL that could ship the items so I had to drive to that store talk to them about the item being delivered to my new address and they to told me that they couldn’t deliver it but they can have the warehouse send it to that store so I got the address to the nearest store to my new address which was the hometown IL location I went into the store I believe march 29th and I spoke to them told them about the arrangements that was made from the other stores and it was fine however the workers there was very unprofessional they where in the back eating laughing and I believed I smelled weed in the air of the store I’ve never had bad service like that they harassed my references on girl name Tiffany left a rude message on my mothers voicemail and called my cousin phone numerous times while she was in the hospital seeing her father as she explained already to her she told her she was just getting a reference and she needed it now. Through all that I end up finally getting my bedroom set with mattress and I was making my payments on time of $100 paying off the items in June I usually pay with a card but I went into the store making the last payment and the lady said I was done so I left within those times as past i started training for a new job and then I get a call from them saying that I still have more payments I was very confused because I was aware that I was done making payments they said I Owen 1900 more on the bed room set and if I don’t make a payment they will schedule a pick up so I explained to them that I made all my payments and that I’m not giving them anymore of my hard earned money because they messed up. The lady Tiffany said that u past my 90 days which wasn’t true I paid that off before hand and she said I got the interest rate I’m very upset I explained to them either they give me back my $750 and I go somewhere else or they don’t get anything back I haven’t yet heard anything back since after I paid them I threw away my contract and things because I was done with them here it is August and they are calling me with non sense I’m looking to press legal charges against them for this issue apparently I’m not the first this has happened to to whom may read this please contact me back 314-546-xxxx

I went to the 1045 W Hallandale Beach Blvd, Hallandale Beach, FL 33009
(954) 458-6800 location and I’ve had the worst experience ever! I ordered a bunk bed and a living room set. I ordered it with the 4 weeks free promo…I was told it would be delivered on monday. I explained to the store manager (a lady) that I had to be to work at 2:30..she guaranteed me that I would be the first delivery since they had no other deliveries yet. They also told me that the living room set was brand new! The delivery didn’t come until after 4 I called 3 times before hand and was told it would be to me within moments each time. When they got to my home the living room set was missing 2 pillows which the floor model had so I only assumed my set would too. I was told it only comes with 2 pillows not four and I could purchase the floor model pillows! The bunk bed had no mattresses. The excuse I got was the cleaning people never came to clean them so I couldn’t have them yet…so I have to suffer and have no mattress for my son since someone else didn’t do their job. Than the store manager (a guy now) says he will deliver the mattress but it’s wet and he will give me a 70 discount off the bunk bed but he would have to talk to corporate if he could not do that than he would give me another week free on both items. Not only did I miss work from perfect attendance for a year but I am now getting a call saying I’m a week late on my payments. No one ever got back to me every time I call I get the run around. And on top of all that it took 2 days for the mattress to dry so my son had to sleep with me. I am beyond passed off…I would never rent from renta center again. Something needs to be done to compensate me and this chain of unprofessional staff of liars. My number is 585-773-XXXX.

I went to Rent a Center in July to Rent a bedroom set and TV. I went to 4127 W 87th St Hometown, IL 60456 Ph: 708-636-2200 I talked to Tiffany and anther girl. I paid them the 143.00 for the bi/weekly payment. Then they called me back, to tell me that they could not verify my references and that they were told, I was late in the past, so they could not approve me, to come in and they will recharge my card back for the $143.00. I called the other store, where I had only rented a lab top from them and returned it, because I did not need it anymore. I had good re pore with the Pulaski store in Chicago, Ph:773-202-9090. I talked to Damien, and he said, that they never told them anything, that he does not know what they are talking about. I called my landlord and she said, that she did talk to them and told them that, I pay my bills on time. So, they lied to me and told me that they could not reach any one. Today, I get a call from Tiffany from the Rent a center, telling me if I don’t come in to there store and claim my money back, that they owe me, that they are going to charge me????? Seriously, charge me for what? They owe me, I don’t owe them anything. They are very unprofessional and I do not feel they have a right to threaten me. When they owe me money. Please have someone call me back about this! I will be seeking legal counsel regards to the threat I received today 8/5/14 My number is 773-569-XXXX. Thanks for your help
