I bought my couch from rent a center. We didn't really know anything about them. We went in and bought it out right for $200. We got a discount because it had a small dot of nail polish. 

I noticed a lot of people though coming in with their accounts over due.

Every time I read the paper & there has been some sort of arrest on the front page I tell my hubby the name to see if its a customer!  Lol for the most part it's ok he works over 60 hrs a week as a store manager he makes 800+ each week plus any store incentives.  


He always sees past due people when were out with our kids on his day off it can be awkward!

Omg & last thanksgiving my uncles love child asked my grandmother what our family was doing I always host thanksgiving so we invited her and her s/o & thier dd.  joking around I told my husband they were coming but I didn't know last names or where they lived.  Turns out my cousins s/o was a delinquent customer!  What an uncomfortable situation!  I enjoyed meeting my cousin & her family but her s/o kept making comments.  "Oh your dh can give you our # he must have in memorized" or "you don't need us to give you our address your dh has it". I have tried continuing a relationship with my cousin she doesn't respond.

I bought a washer outright from a RAC once. Only time I've ever gotten anything from a RAC but I've had plenty of neighbors with RAC furniture.
I've always assumed it was low income people getting furniture/appliances from there.

No they clean everything and if they do pick up a questionable item they leave it in the back of the box truck & have an exterminator bomb the truck with the furniture in it then they disinfect it.  They had a flea scare & then the bed but issue was big they did it a few times as a precaution better to pay a professional than to have bad pr!

 Do they call your family, friends, neighbors and employer to demand payment?
