Good lord, I am NOT shocked in the slightest.

 

I remember I had a Progressive Rent to own account 2 years ago but I was never late and paid my accounts off within the 90 day warning so I didn't have to pay Chocolate Goodness flowers interest. I always tell people on the Progressive Facebook page, DO NOT OPEN ACCOUNTS IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE INCOME TO PAY.

You have to tell people this?

Had a Progressive Account briefly to pay for a nice $2134 bedroom set when I moved into my apartment. Paid it off in 88 days approximately (just under the gun) with tutoring/work funds/tax refund cash. People have to read the fine print in those contracts. Had I not settled the account in the 90-day window, it would've been a total of almost $4400 paid over a year to settle it.

 

Common sense isn't common these days.....

Exactly. I was in a similar situation where I knew I would pay this off within the 90. I also had a really great sales person who kept stressing paying this off in 90days or else I'll regret it.

 

The Devil is always in the Details and I believe most folks have the same mindset John Steinbeck accused us having...
