When you're ready, you can come back, reinstate your agreement to get the same or comparable item, and pick up your payments right where you left off.
    At Rent-A-Center, you don’t lose what you pay into an agreement. If you voluntarily return a product before reaching ownership, you’ll be given a payment protection voucher that will allow you to pick up where you left off when you’re ready.

    There are three ways to redeem your payment protection voucher / store credit:
  • Reinstate your agreement: You have the option of getting your item \(or a comparable item\) back, and the full amount of the voucher will be applied to the agreement.
  • Switch to another item: If you don’t want the same item you were renting before, use your voucher to get up to three months off the original term of any previously rented item. The voucher will reduce the total cost and allow you to own the item sooner.
  • Transfer the credit to a friend: Give your voucher to a friend. They can take over the payments on your original item or get up to three month off a previously rented item.
  • Yes, just call or visit your local store. They will help you reinstate your agreement and apply your store credit.

  • 4-6 Months Same as Cash: Own it in the first 4-6 months and you'll pay only the cash price.
  • Standard Early Purchase : After your same as cash period has ended, you still save on the remaining total if you choose to own your item early. Most Rent A Center locations offer a 50 percent savings on the remaining total. This can vary by state, so be sure to review your agreement.

You end up owning it for the original cash price, plus tax, of course. Typically, the same as cash period is 4-6 months depending on the product, but it can vary by state.

    Benefits/LDW

    Liability Damage Waiver (LDW) is an optional program that protects you from liability in the event your rental product is stolen or damaged due to natural disaster, fire or smoke. Without LDW, you are responsible for the cost to repair or replace the stolen or damaged merchandise . By paying a small fee with each rental payment, you pass this responsibility on to Rent-A-Center, so you can breathe easy!
    LDW protects you from a wide range of unexpected events, such as theft, fire, lightning, flooding and other acts of nature. It does not cover loss or damage from abuse or carelessness.
    LDW protection is available to all customers with a current agreement, in all states excluding California
    Most customers still benefit from LDW even if they have homeowners or renters insurance. Many insurance policies have high deductibles and may not cover rental products. We recommend you check if your insurance will cover the cost to replace or repair rental merchandise and consider the amount of your deductible when deciding whether LDW is right for you and your budget.
    In most states, the Liability Damage Waiver is only 10% of your rental payment. Contact your local store for your state's pricing.
    Whether you’re starting a new rental agreement or you’re already a customer, you can opt in to LDW anytime before a loss occurs. Contact your local store to add the Liability Damage Waiver to your agreement. It only takes a few minutes.
    Simply contact your local store . If your product is damaged, we will attempt to repair it. If your product is stolen, we will ask you to provide a police report.
    Yes. If you want to stop payments on your Liability Damage Waiver, just let a store associate know. There are no fees or penalties for changing your mind
