I posted this on the site but thought I’d have better luck here.
This is the verbatim transcription of the terms of Rent-A-Center renting you a 60″ TV and a 32″ TV for $29.99 a week currently on my teevee.
I’d really like a law-talkin’ guy to FWRAC this.
The amount of wrong in this agreement is simply satanic:
“Rental Purchase/Lease transaction. ‘Pay as you go’ refers to customer’s choice of weekly, semi-monthly or monthly payments. Rate and term will be determined on new agreement based on item selected. Ownership is optional and requires payment of total cost or early purchase option (‘EPO’). ‘No credit needed’ agreement requires verification of residence, income and four personal references. Bundle offers reduce weekly rates when compared to weekly rates for renting bundled items separately. Bundle offers will not reduce total amount necessary to acquire ownership or purchase-option amounts. Only select items may be bundled; some items excluded. $29.99/wk., max 127 weeks, max total cost $3,808.73. GA/PA cost of lease services $1808.75, WV retail value $1,489.12; WV RTO Charge $2,049.70. MA & RI: EPO is 80% of remaining rent. In VT, 18 week minimum applies and 90 days same as cash is not available. See store for details.”
