Do not buy merchandise from this type of retailer. If you can't afford to buy a product by cash, you can not afford it. Save for your purchase. If you buy from this type of retailer, the product you buy rent to own, at the end of your contract with them you could have bought the same product 4x's over. You work to hard for your money to give it away.

Same thing for buying a house or a vehicle or .... anything! The problem is there is a faction of people who will line up at these places and fall victim to the small print on the contract! The other rent to own joints are always repoing their junk china made electronics and furniture! Just think I don't need it today and keep dropping your change in the big bottle in the corner and it might surprise you how fast you can get it on your own from a discount store! Don't spend a dime in this dump! We didn't have it before and we don't need it now!

All very true.

But many are either "desperate" or want immediate gratification.

If you look up the culture of poverty, this type of business preys on those with little resources.

All very true. This is just a dressed-up form of predatory lending. A disappointing commentary on the economic state of the local area when these kind of leeches move in expecting to flourish.

Desperate or want immediate gratification? Come on down I gotcha right here "The Haney Egg-Layin' Inducing Machine" or ifin you need such a thing I gotcha a "gen-u-wine Cooper Cow-Coaxer" for those stubern corn fed hunnies!

This business preys on those with little resources and the Town of Bennington welcomes them with open arms! Just like all the worlds sex offenders! The next thing they will let in is Beneficial Finance or is it here already or even in business! Oh I bet they are!

A guy wants to make his garage 1 foot bigger and he has to jump through hoops then Dirt Works builds a big box store that was within the same foot print but a skyscraper!!!!!!!

Blame all this on the Town of Bennington! The same ones who are running the police dapartment who is supposed to protect us into the ground!

THE END!

Mindy, Mindy, Mindy!

Sometimes we need to settle for less. You can get an awesome refurbished laptop on ebay for $200 or less. Just think what you could do with the $600, wait, I mean about $1200 you'd save.

Think about it. Heck, I'd like a BMW, but I'd settle for a used Neon.

I am not justifying anything. I am saying it works for me. That doesn't mean it is right for everyone. Stupid is as stupid does, and think what you want doesn't bother me. and when it is all said and done it is my money to do with what I want and with that said.. your opinion means nothing to me when it comes to what I do with my money!!
