I simply do not understand why or how these Rent A Centers have a foothold in neighborhoods?!? Why on earth do people think it's better to pay someone else to rent furniture, appliances or entertainment related items at jacked up interest rates when they can go to any legitimate retailer and PAY FOR IT THEMSELVES directly to the retailer at reasonable rates??

The concept is ludicrous but there you have it. This is a worthless excuse for a company that takes advantage of people's gullibility to make a tidy profit. I went in there once to rent a projection screen I needed for a presentation I was doing. They wanted $200 a day(!) to rent this thing. It costs $250 to buy the thing and own it in normal retail stores, so why on earth would I be so stupid to "rent" this from them for 1 day for that much?!?

The clerk talked down to me the entire time, you know to help the "little lady" understand the big complication that is technology. After I stopped laughing at him, I informed him that there's such an illegal matter called price gouging which they were in fact doing and that I was intelligent enough to know they were playing me for a fool. I left the store and convinced two other "customers" with our exchange that Rent A Center was taking major advantage of people.

PROS: NONE. STAY AWAY!
CONS: Price Gouging, High Extortion Like Interest Rates
