Went to rooms to go in Mid Feb to purchase a sofa and chair (cash). I ended up paying cash for the sofa and financed the chair through RAC finance on 90 days same as cash because I thought this was a perfect chance to have some on time positive payments on my credit. I wanted to simply pay it off the very next month. However the rep suggested that I make all 3 payments each month because they do not report to the bureaus until that 2nd payment is made.

From there, the rep asked me if I wanted my payments set for the 30th (first payment due on Feb 28) or set them up for the 15th (first payment due on March 15). I said 30th. When I received the paperwork, my payments were set up for the 15th. I asked why and the rep said, “oh I went ahead and set them up for the 15th that way, you will have more time to make your first payment.” I made a payment in March, April and May. Called Acceptance Now today and was just told that I am not paid in full because my 90 days was up on May 9….

According to the person on the phone…. She is the manager, she will not Retro, she will not let me speak to her manager and she will not give me the corp phone number. I’m a tad bit upset and taken advantage of right now because I feel like the rep completely got over on me. If she knew that I want 90 days same as cash and I kept stressing that, why would she set my payments up in a way that I will have to pay back interest. I also think that it was extra foul for her to insist that I set them up that way. Maybe she will get to pocket the back interest or perhaps she doesn’t earn credit with no interest accounts… IDK, but it is quite shady.

You would think that they would have the customer’s best interest at heart and treat them right. That’s the best way to get a repeat customer. I mean, had I been the rep, I’d say, “well mam in order for you to get the 90 days same as cash, you should not use the 15th because your 90 is up on May 9”

I thought the 90 days same as cash was a great deal and I was prepared to purchase a mattress and dresser for my three year old through them after the chair was paid for. Looks like using them is a bad idea and I should stay away.

I’m currently awaiting a call back from a district Manager. Hopefully they understand my frustration and help. I really wish my whole contract process would have been recorded.

I have had 2 accounts that have been paid off with 90 days. The 1st time,the COMPANY started out being dishonest and I thought I got myself into a unresolveable mess.

The kinks were resolved and everything was ok after that. They DO play games and mislead to make money off you! I got involved with financing my furniture so that I could build my credit, in which it did! AND it doesn’t mean that you don’t have the money to pay.

I had the TOTAL amount of money to pay the furniture put away, so that I could my bill off, but my whole entire purpose was to BUILD my credit! So for YOU to make such an inflammatory statement, goes to show that YOU’RE the LOW LIFE and TOTALLY ignorant to assume that you have people figured out! Everybody who finance furniture DOES NOT have bad credit and just because one has not so great credit doesn’t mean mean they’re *** You don’t know WHAT may have caused the issue.

Sometimes illness, death, divorce or fraud can do it, so carry on Acceptance Now employee!!! Share this with your co-workers!

ACCEPTANCE NOW IS THE WORST PLACE TO DO BUSINESS WITH! THEY ARE TOTAL RIPOFFS!

INSURANCE PLAN IF LAID OFF IS A TOTAL LIE!!! THEY STEAL YOUR PAYMENTS! THEY FORGE RECEIPTS! THEIR CORPORATE OFFICE AND DISTRICT MANAGERS ARE CROOKS!

I was screwed with the 90 days same as cash thing too. We played off before the 90 days was up thinking we were going to get money back or something but NOT.

I forget how much we paid extra but we paid rental fees and interest for the 90 day period. I thought 90 days same as cash meant it would be the same price as it would have been if I had paid for it upfront.

It seems as if Anonymous works for Acceptance Now. And what a shame to represent your company with such an uncouth attitude.

Yes, it seems as though Anonymous does work for Acceptance Now.... I mean who else would come to this site and try to degrade customers with legit complaints.

This is a review board (so who’s the real high quality winner).

If and only IF you are an employee; If YOU would put as much effort into your customer service as YOU put into trying to make customers feel like idiots YOU might have something. Thanks for all the reviews and heads up from the REAL HIGH QUALITY WINNERs because you have prevented me from becoming another pissed customer...

Read the contract !!!!!

Update: my issue was never resolved. I ended up paying these folks off early when they started demanding double payments when I wanted to pay 2-3 days late.

I'd always refuse. Ur not gonna make me pay a payment thats not due yet.

Id also monitor my credit to be sure they don't report me as more than 30 days late. A lot of money spent, but it boosted my credit score significantly which is exactly what I wanted.

Acceptance Now is such a scam. I have a contract with them in Arkansas and they have been debiting my account monthly for more than my contract amount.
