Have family and friends coming over for Thanksgiving or staying at your home? If so, the time to start thinking about their accommodations is now. If you need extra furniture, new furniture or something just for those days you’ll be hosting your guests, think about rent to own stores.
Remember the first word in rent to own is rent. Most Americans don’t realize that rent to own stores rent furniture, appliances, HDTVs, computer gaming systems, computers and much more. You rent them for the time you need then the rent to own guys come by and take them away.
Regarding just rentals, some good ideas are computer gaming systems and an extra HDTV. Especially when you have a group of kids that need to be entertained and occupied while the adults catch up on their lives or re-live those old memories. Another quick rental would be bunk beds for extra guests. Or stand alone freezers if you have too many turkeys.
Then there’s the ‘try before you buy’ option rent to own offers. If you were looking to upgrade your dining room table, couch or recliner. Try it out with the guests in town. You’ll be able to make the house and guests more comfortable with new furniture. If you end up liking them, then keep them. If not, then have the rent to own store pick them up.
Buy new home furnishings for the guests. Sometimes it takes a get together to finally push yourself to buying new home furniture, appliances and HDTVs. With rent to own, like said before, you can try before you buy but if ownership is what you’re looking for then calculate payments in the best possible strategy. The less payments, the less the total cost.
And use their ’90 days same as cash’ option. Some go up to ‘180 days same as cash’. That means if you can make payments within 90 days, the total cost is close to retail and all the time you still get the debt free, no obligation feature that keeps you out of the legal obligation that credit cards put you in.
Remember, the rent to own stores will deliver and set up everything you rent or rent to own so that is a great feature. They will always fix the item beyond the warranty if you’re on the ownership track.
The rent to own transaction has so many benefits that most people don’t realize. And when they do, they’re always surprised that fits in their budget and lifestyle. Always shop around with the many rent to own stores in your neighborhood. Each store has different specialties or sales so make sure you do your homework prior.
