Quick Answers...Rent to Own
I am looking to purchase some furniture and one option is a rent-to-own, what other options do I have?
Delay the purchase of the item until you have saved enough
money to pay cash.
- Try to purchase the item through installments or
layaway at a department or appliance store.
- Obtain a short-term consumer loan from a bank or
- Purchase the item used from a garage sale, classified
ad, or second-hand store.
