I wonder how in an average hell did the saleman close that deal, there just has to be something more than an incredible stypidity involved.

That's how rentacenter works. No credit check needed because you're about to flush it down the toilet anyways. People go in there only look at the big "Only $20 a week" signs and completely ignore the 30+% interest rate fine print.

Exactly. There's no way in heck I would rent anything from them. You're paying twice as much for that item than you would if you would save your money to get it.

I always spring for the 400% interest deals, I don't know about you guys.

Maybe she should have saved her money and taken a math class...

It'd be cheaper to pay the thing off than continue payments I'd imagine

You see, there are a lot of VERY stupid people in the world and there are always going to be smart people preying on them.

If she couldn't have come up with $400 just by waiting a few months, she had no business renting it. At first I thought that was some sort of joke but then realized that it's probably legit. She could have bought a CAR with $2500. A CAR!!!

Now that I think about it, if she's having to fork over $140 a month, yeah she could have waited 3 months and just bought one at retail price

While I don't necessarily think that RAC should have charged them 600% interest, I certainly can't fault them from a money making point of view. the odds that they'd never see the PS3 again were probably high given if the woman lives in a high crime neighborhood where break in's are common and she was (I can only assume) considered to be a very high risk customer.

Enough people are stupid enough to sign on the dotted line.

Sad but true...

The only reason people go to this place is because they have no credit and/or they really have no intentions of paying or returning the stuff. There really is no other reason to go to this place. Even with the highest interest credit card there is you could pay off a ps3 and a 360 in no time
