The need for a new couch, refrigerator or TV set doesn’t always come at the most opportune time for your bank account.
That’s why stores like Rent-A-Center exist–and now, Redwood City gets to call one its very own, since a brand new location just opened up at 1802 El Camino Real.
Whether you just need the extra time to pay it off, without all the extra interest a credit card comes with, or, you’re just not sure you’ll like something enough to justify paying the price, Rent-A-Center lets you make weekly, bi-weekly or monthly rent payments on items like furniture, computers, electronics and appliances. Then, if you decide you love it, you can choose to put the rent you’ve paid on the item toward the purchase price and keep it forever.
Best of all, for those who have no credit history – or, perhaps , just not the best history – there is no credit check required to rent an item from Rent-A-Center. All you need is proof of residence, proof of a job, and three personal references.
By paying items off quickly – such as within 90 days – you can get significant savings off the usual retail price. There is also an early payout option that can save you even more.
If your financial situation changes, you can even return your item to Rent-A-Center at any time, and then pick back up right where you left off with your payments at a later date.
For items like big-screen TVs, Rent-A-Center will deliver it to your home and set it up for you. The staff will even make service calls to help keep the item working to your satisfaction, at no additional cost. If repairs are going to take time, they will give you a free loaner item to use while you wait.
Rent-A-Center carries brands like Hewlett-Packard, LG, Samsung, Toshiba, Dell, Sony, Whirlpool, Serta and more.
If you’re considering trying Rent-A-Center out, you can make Wish Lists and place orders online on the company’s website at www.rentacenter.com, and then coordinate your payment plan and deliveries with the Redwood City store directly, by visiting at 1802 El Camino Real, or calling 650-364-3326. The new Redwood City store is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The store is closed on Sundays.
