4 Easy Ways to Make a Payment at Rent-A-Center

mother and daughter shopping on tabletRenting furniture, appliances, and electronics from Rent-A-Center is a convenient and accessible way to get the stuff you need when you need it! However, it can be easy to forget to make your weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly payments on time.

But don’t worry! At Rent-A-Center, we know you want the best of both worlds — convenient ways to own, and equally convenient bill payment options, which is why we offer a variety of ways to pay! Whether you prefer talking to someone at the store or by phone, setting up online payments, or even paying your Rent-A-Center bill in cash — we’ve got a solution for you! Read all about Rent-A-Center’s different payment methods below!

1. Pay Your Rent-A-Center Bill in Cash

Do you believe that cash is king? If you prefer carrying dollar bills over credit cards, you may find it difficult to get certain retailers to accept your payment. However, when you rent-to-own with Rent-A-Center, you can make your payments in hard cash at various retailers like Dollar General®, CVS™, and 7-Eleven®!

How do I make my Rent-A-Center payment in cash? At the start of your lease-purchase agreement with Rent-A-Center, you’ll receive a paper or digital bill with a barcode. When you need to make a payment, visit a participating retailer near you and scan your barcode at the register. You can then hand over your cash or preferred tender type, and your account will be credited immediately. Keep in mind, a $1.50 convenience fee will apply and make sure you hang onto the receipt for your records!

Why does paying this way make good cents?

  • If you don’t have a credit or debit card handy, you can use cash to pay your bill with ease.
  • If you’re ready to make a payment on a Sunday, but your local Rent-A-Center is closed, you can still make an in-person payment at any one of the 60,000+ stores in our retailer network.
  • If you are not super tech-savvy (and would prefer not to contact us by phone), you can pay your Rent-A-Center bill with the same ease of buying a candy bar from a convenience store.

2. Pay Your Rent-A-Center Bill by Phone

No WiFi? No problem! Our friendly customer service team is only one phone call away — ready to help you make payments, upgrade your items, or start a new lease-purchase agreement. Call your local Rent-A-Center to pay with a card from Visa or Mastercard, keeping in mind that a $1.99 convenience fee may apply.

Why does paying this way make good cents?

  • If you don’t have a reliable internet connection (or aren’t that tech-savvy), you can quickly contact your Rent-A-Center location to pay your bill.
