The Terms are meant to protect our Web Site visitors and the integrity of our systems. Your use of this Web Site signifies you agree to abide by these Terms.

Rent-A-Center, Inc., on behalf of itself and its affiliates and/or subsidiaries (hereinafter collectively "RAC") reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify, alter or otherwise update these Terms at any time. Such modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting. By continuing to use this Web Site after we have posted notice of such modifications, alterations or updates, you agree to be bound by the Terms as revised.
The online payment services (hereafter collectively "ePay" and "AutoPay") are provided as a convenient method to make rental payments but do not alter or modify the terms of your agreement. RAC assumes no responsibility for providing access to, or maintaining the Web Site. If the Web Site is unavailable for any reason, the customer remains responsible for making timely renewal payments on or before the scheduled due date. Renewal Payments received after the due date may be assessed a late fee in the amount specified in the rental agreement to the extent permitted by applicable state laws. Customers using online payment processing to make their payments are required to pay each agreement on which a payment is made, in full. You may not use online payment processing to make a payment for less than the total amount owed for the next renewal period for each agreement selected for ePay/AutoPay. In the event your agreement(s) expire(s) for failure to make a timely renewal payment, you will be required to pay any outstanding reinstatement/late fees plus an amount sufficient to renew the lease on the previously established schedule prior re-enrolling in AutoPay. If the applicable reinstatement period provided by your state law has expired, online payment processing may not be available to you and you may be required to contact the store to process a payment.
Under the terms of your agreement, you are required to renew your agreement when due if you elect to retain the merchandise. In using online payment processing, it is your responsibility to ensure that sufficient funds are available to complete any payments directed through ePay and/or AutoPay. You agree that you may be charged a returned item fee if sufficient funds are not available at the time of the scheduled payment. Check with your financial institution and/or card issuer to determine if any additional charges for such a debit will apply to your account and ask how ePay transactions may be described on your statement. If a transaction is refused by your financial institution for any reason, including insufficient funds, closed account, unauthorized account, or exceeding account limits, ePay and/or AutoPay will not be able to process your payment and your Agreement may not renew. Under the terms of your Agreement, you may be subject to additional charges if your payment is rejected, reversed or refused by your financial institution. Upon completion of your agreement term or exercise of your early purchase option, please contact your store to receive your ownership certificate.
Unauthorized Use of Online Payment Accounts – If you think your account has been accessed without your permission, contact us immediately by calling contact our Online Payment Support Desk at 1-888-ePay-RAC [1-888-372-9722]. You should also contact your financial institution and/or card issuer.
Termination of ePay or AutoPay –Participation in ePay and/or AutoPay is optional. You may change or terminate your enrollment elections at any time by logging on to "My Account" on www.rentacenter.com. Likewise, we reserve the right to discontinue accepting ePay or AutoPay payments at any time, for any reason, without prior written notice. We may send notification of termination of these services at any time after the termination is effective.
Authorization to Debit Your Account: By authorizing a payment in ePay, you are authorizing RAC to make a one-time debit to the bank or card account you designate in the amount due for your selected agreements. Upon completion of a payment, RAC will provide a receipt indicating the amount debited at your direction by means of an email message to the address you have provided. Payment Processing: Payments will be debited from your designated bank or card account on or after the date you elect to make the ePay payment. In the event that the online payment process requires a billing adjustment to the account, it will cancel the original withdrawal and establish a new withdrawal for the updated amount and/or payment date. If you need to update your card or bank account information at any time, you may update your banking information online by logging on to "My Account" on www.rentacenter.com.
Authorization to Make Automatically Recurring Debits from Your Account: By enrolling in AutoPay, you are authorizing RAC to debit the bank or card account you designate each renewal period to pay automatically the amount due for each agreement you have enrolled. Upon completion of each scheduled payment, RAC will provide a receipt indicating the amount and date of the payment that was automatically debited by means of an email message to the address you have provided.
Payment Processing - Automatic payments in the amount owed for each agreement enrolled in AutoPay will be debited from your designated bank or card account on the date each renewal payment is due. In the event that the online payment process requires a billing adjustment to the account, it will cancel the withdrawal and establish a new withdrawal for the amount and/or payment date. If you need to update your checking or savings account information at any time, you may update your banking information online by logging on to "My Account" on www.rentacenter.com.
Cancellation – To cancel an AutoPay payment, you will need to login to "My Account" on www.rentacenter.com and deselect the agreement at least one (1) business day before the transaction is scheduled to occur. You may change or cancel scheduled payments up to one day before the scheduled payment date. Same day payments cannot be cancelled. You may opt out of AutoPay at any time; however changes may take up to one (1) day to take effect. Your AutoPay program enrollment will remain active and in effect until you cancel or until an AutoPay scheduled payment is unsuccessful due to unavailability of funds for any reason. To cancel any AutoPay election or to update any account information, log in to your "My Account" on www.rentacenter.com. If an AutoPay scheduled payment is cancelled due to unavailability of funds, or at your election, the affected agreement(s) will no longer be enrolled in AutoPay and you will be required to contact the store to make payment or log into your account and update "My Payment Methods" to provide another method of payment on or before the scheduled renewal date to avoid expiration of our agreement(s). In the event your agreement expires for failure to make a timely renewal payment, you will be required to pay any outstanding reinstatement/late fees plus an amount sufficient to renew the lease on the previously established schedule prior re-enrolling in AutoPay.
