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 credit union.
     
  • Purchase the item used from a garage sale, classified ad, or second-hand store.
