my husband and I previously rented furniture from aarons rental company twice the first furniture we brought with thought to be infested with fleas. it turned out to be bed bugs. so we spent it back we got treated for bed bugs.. and we were bed bug free for 3 months. we brought more furniture from aarons. and now we have them again. the manager does not want to own up to the fact that aaron has a bed bug a problem. so now I'm going to sue.

Aarons sold me a frniture set that was infested with bed bugs. The first time I got furniture through Aarons was the worst mistake of my life. I got the furniture in the last two weeks of October and was gone for a week when I came home and sat on the couch i had noticed that my arm was red and irratated I called Aarons and asked them what kind of chemicals they used on the furniture becuase I thought maybe tha was what was breaking my arm out then the same night I saw these little baby bugs crawling on the arm of the couch I called then next morning an told them something was not right with the furniture and that they needed to come and look at what I was talking about it took them two days before they came. Then the same week I was cleaning my house vaccuming my furniture like I always do and seen these nasty looking bugs I put them in a baggy and called Aarons and told them I wanted the funrniture out of my house. They informed me they would not take the furniture back becuase I infested them . I was upset and disgusted with them from that point on I have been asking them to come and remove the furniture from my property an still to this day thy have not all I get is disrespect an told it is my fault and I am the one who had them I have never had BED BUGS until I got furniture from them....... So now I am seeing all these comments about how Aarons cares the only thing they care about is getting money and selling infested junk.

Not to mention they slander Rent a Center saying that I could have gotten them from Rent A Center are you serious I havent rented from them in like 6 years. They informed me that our local rent a center had a infestation of them. I was disgusted when they blammed someone else for their mistake not to mention they call everyday and discriminate all the time and treat their customers like they are dirt when the general manager can disrespect you and still have their job that shows aarons doesnt care at all

I just recently got furniture from aarons in December 2 weeks later I started getting bit. I had a company bring in dogs to inspect the furniture and WE HAD BED BUGS!!! After having my house treated and everything in bags for 2 weeks I started getting bit again! I just called them yesterday and told them if they didnt come get the furniture it would be in the trash! They were here right away to get it! This company assured me that the furniture was treated at time of purchase which was lies. Plz do not buy from this company. It has literally ruined my new apartment as well as messed with my family and friends due to them also having to have their houses inspected. Ive never seen such a disregard for customers and their health in my life.

So my wife I got a twin bed and a couch from aarons both of which were infested with bed bugs. Now my whole apartment is infested. Having to throw out clothes and furniture and pretty much everything just to get ready for the place to be treated. This going to cost a fortune. Aarons should be put out of business. My daughter is on freaking chemo and an infection could be horribly dangerous for her. But does aarons care? NO they refuse to even talk to me. Maybe they'll speak to my attorney.

Me and my husband got a bedroom suit from Aarons and it wasn't a month after we got it we started noticing that we were getting bit and when we saw bed bugs we called aarons and the sent out orkin and the store manager came with him and they tried to say that there was no activity and when we bought the damn thing they told me it was new and then when i was making my bed i saw a return tag on it and i told aarons and they said we still ahd to pay fro it until the six months are up so i'am going to slap a law suit on them and word of advice dont trust aarons and don't trust orkin cause the are contracted with aarons or something cause they lie for them.

Broken promises to employees, lazy unqualified managers are usually promoted into positions due to favoritism not performance. No work life balance at all...most associates work a minimum of 50 hours a week and it's physically and mentally demanding. I have personally brought into the store from non renewed customers homes roach/ bed bug infested pissed on furniture and bedding and seen it go right back out the door the next day. The pay sucks and morals don't exist but hey everyone let's do the Aarons cheer every Friday!!!

Dispose of all contaminated mattresses/couches NOT furniture. Wash clothes in hot water and dry at high temperature then seal in bags. Wash bedding twice per week. Remove all clutter (paper, things you dont really use or need) from house. Get a spray bottle (fill with a third of each: water, 90 percent rubbing alcohol, and dish detergent) spray this in baseboards and on back of mattress). Get some dicetomaceous earth FOOD GRADE ONLY at Amazon.com and put in a ketchup bottle. PUT this powder in every crack and crevice you see.....even furniture. Put powder around base boards. Vacuum twice daily, taking the bag immediately out the house. I did this for 8 weeks no bugs. My bugs came from a thrift store "treasure".You are not alone...be encouraged.

Aaron's is a terror place. Stand in the showroom for 10 minutes watching a couch or loveseat. Out the come.....bedbugs. You see them with your own eyes but when you ask staff about bedbugs at Aaron's.....deny deny. deny.

We bought a couch and love seat from our local Aarons, Allentown, PA. I run a in home daycare business and started noticing bites on both my family and children I cared for. I called the store and was told that unfortunately they have dealt with this scenario before and even have customers still paying on furniture that have the same issue but Aarons won't take the furniture back due to the infestationS, which came from Aarons to begin with, but it's hard to prove.
Ok, yes, some of us can't afford to just buy our furniture outright so we turn to alternatives like rent to own companies....does that warrant them not treating the furniture correctly or ridding of it to provide future costumers with CLEAN items??
It cost me and my family thousands and lose of business because I, unlike Aarons, am honest and told my clients about the situation.
Would like to find other customers to help solve this problem.

I purchased a brand new bed and frame from Aarons in Hayward CA. My 2 year old son was bit from head to toe. The next night I was bit up. I bombed my house washed everything and we got bit the same night. One night I woke up at 3am and moved my son to find a bed bug underneath him. I was furious. I looked up the bug online and it turned out to be a bed bug. I am so upset that my little boy was devoured upon by this disgusting creatures. They need to be stopped. There infesting everyone who leases from them.
