Huge ripoff. Save and buy one piece at a time.

It's weird. If you can't afford it, you can't afford it.

Its a rip. You end up paying 2 to 3 times more than what they actually sell for if you bought them outright.

dont those places have super high interest like payday loans? My parents bought a couch from rent a center or someplace like that when I was a kid, and they were still paying on it long after that thing was worn out.
I've never done it. If I can't afford to pay cash for something, I don't get it. I have no debt. It's amazing. More people should try it.

I think its a horrible idea. You pay WAY more then what they are worth or what you would just buying them new.

Such a bad idea. After interest, you've paid double. financing on a store card is a better idea if you do it responsibly.

Bad idea
You end up paying twice or three times the price
its just not worth it....take that money you WOULD spend each week and set it aside..you can probably afford whatever you need in 2 or 3 months

or you can go the cheap route and check out places like big lots or walmart....its not great but its cheaper
