Resolution response: Aug. 7, 2018

I had a gentleman call me from Progressive Leasing customer service today. They were concerend that I wasnt properly informed about the 90 day payout option and the financial impact that would occur if I didn't pay off my balance within the 90 days.

They are going to implement more training to ensure that their retail clients and employes' better help clients understand the lease agreement better.

They informed me they will be issuing a refund for the amount I was charged that exceeded my purchase price, do to the fact I wasnt properly informed about the lease agreement.

I am giving 5 stars for the excellent customer service and compassion the company showed with helping resolve this matter.

Please take the reviews seriously, it will save you a lot of money. It is very true, if you don't pay the full amount of your purchase within in 90 days they will double the price of your actual purchase. Companies should not recommend their clients to use such a shady business to finance their purchase. I purchased from Mattress Firm and they recommended Progressive Leasing for my purchase. I take full responsibility that I should of read the contract in more detail. I have paid for my error.

I will never go to Mattress Firm again for setting me up for a scam, they didn't care what happened to me after the purchase. I have done furniture purchases with Ashley furniture and had to finance my furniture, they use a company called Synchrony Bank for financing. I am almost done with this account and the whole process went smoothly. So, there are other honest companies out there to finance purchases. Companies should be more responsible who they recommend their customers use when trying to finance a purchase. Mattress Firm will never get my business again for sending me to a crook.

Original review: July 28, 2018

I bought two birthstone rings from my department store’s jewelers, they suggested Progressive Leasing because they didn’t have a payment plan. And I signed and now regret everything. They ask for full name, birthday, social security, and bank information. MAKE SURE YOU READ EVERY WORD OF THEIR LEASE AGREEMENT!!! If you do the 90-day Plan, MAKE SURE YOU STAY ON TOP OF IT, because as soon as you pass 90 days it DOUBLES the price. (Also pay 87 days before because it takes two to three days to process) I cannot stress enough that you need to be two steps ahead them. This is a legal scam and it takes its victims by the throat. Stay safe! (Caps are for emphasization.)

I have had several leases with Progressive. Paid them off and got another. I recently applied for a new lease and was denied, reason I was given, "Cannot identify". However when I first started I was told, "Congratulations your account is paid out." I called to find out what the problem was and was told I would have to wait a month before I could apply again. My son which has had an account before applied and was given the same reason. Could not identify. I have had good experience in the past, however my gut is telling me maybe I should leave them alone. The first response that I saw made me think there must be something going on with them. My next move is to check my credit, because they advertise no credit check.

Original review: July 11, 2018

I was HIGHLY DISSATISFIED with the customer service and my purchase of a USED product. I purchased a twin/full bunk bed for my son. When the bed was delivered, the PADS that came with it did not last 3 days and the bed was scratched, dented and unacceptable. I called King Furniture on Perkins, who was going out of business, yet charging customers more than what the items cost.

Another mattress was delivered for the full and not the twin. I WILL NEVER EVER PURCHASE ANYTHING UNDER PROGRESSIVE LEASING! This company is not REPUTABLE at all and VERY MISLEADING! I was given at least 3 payoff amounts since the last payment was made. I was also being charged more than the payment per month, which was $53.70 and I was sending in $65.00 a month since day one. They went up on my payment amount to $63 and some change, even with the payments I was making, I should not have as high a payoff I did. After talking to reps on several occasions, they don't have the decency to understand the customer and just go along with whatever!

I knew going in it was going to be difficult due to my husband's medical bills from the past, but Progressive Leasing helped without making me feel as if I were begging. I did not start with the highest credit level, but increases are on the way. I know what I am getting, how much I am paying, and how to save money. It's no 0.0% financing, but it's a heck of a start. I recommend to everyone. Thanks Progressive Leasing!

Original review: July 10, 2018

I have been a loyal customer and paid off many accounts with this company. I had placed the application have a jewelry store because I wanna to upgrade my ring but they only approved me for 600. I asked them why, because I've been approved for more in the past and I've paid off every account. All they had to say was, "I don't know. I'm sorry we can't help you but that's what you're being approved for." That's their loss. They could have gotten more money from me but they did not one to help me in any way. So I won't be doing business with them anymore. And the worst part they wouldn't let me talk to the supervisor or the people who make the decision so I could not get a reason which is unacceptable. Stay away from this company. They are horrible.

Original review: July 8, 2018

Went in to a Cricket Wireless store to look at service and to use their leasing option from Progressive Leasing (for a new Samsung S9). First they say they do no credit check, which is false. I filled out the application with all my personal info, including my bank info. It was submitted, comes back denied, and have to call. So I call, and was advised they needed a 3 month banking statements. So I submitted via their link they text, and it goes thru. Then I was advised to call back in 15 to 20 minutes, so I do that. The representative states they still decline it.

What I found out is they did a credit check, which they falsely stated would not happen. It did and a hard inquiry on my report. They sounded like a good way to lease, and used the 90 day pay option. Well I highly advised, not to get SCAM By This company. This is being referred to my lawyer for falsely say no credit report will be used. My account has more than enough balance, and never ever a low balance. Progressive Leasing is a Big Scam. BEWARE AND AVOID THIS COMPANY. TIME FOR THE LAWYER.

This is my second time financing with Progressive. Everything was explained when I spoke to them on phone. I believe Big Lots had a little card that listed payments. Weekly payments are affordable for the amount I spent.

Please be very careful when selecting this company. The terms are very misleading. Let me point out what you need to look for. They will get you one way or the other. 1) Your initial in store payment will not be applied to your balance. It basically covers fees only. 2) You will have 2 payment options on file. Your checking account which technically takes 3 days to pull and your debit card which pulls same day. This will make a difference when you’re faced with the 90 day option date. If you are making the payment on the buyout date and use the checking account technically it will not post to your account for approximately 3 days. That’s why they overemphasize they need 3 days to make changes. Always use your debit card in this situation. The system default is to use your checking account that takes 3 days.

3) Please know the system’s view will show you your 90 day payoff amount after the scheduled payment. You will be mislead to think that you’ve paid in full only to find a balance after the 90 day payoff. The system is one day ahead in showing you the auto payment and in real time with your balance. It misleads you to think your 90 day payoff includes the scheduled payment. Technically you would be one payment short after the 90 days. Your balance will then be the doubled amount. You wouldn't even notice if you were not paying attention or knew what to look for. 4) Look at your contract and do the math. Take the amount owed by 90 day option, subtract the payments NOT including the very first one you made in store. That is your balance. It will be one payment short.

I hope this gives you an awareness to make a better decision with the 90 day option. Please do the math folks and save yourself some money. I can't believe how unethical these practices are. Making a profit is understandable but this is modern day trickery and theft. They are preying on the uninformed. Use them for the 90 day option and pay it off days before the expiration.

Original review: June 13, 2018

After using UOWN for a purchase of a bed and living area and receiving fair service from the staff, I decided to purchase again and use them with the 90 quick payout just like I did the 1st time. After making additional payments on top of my regular payments, on April 30th 2018 I received a call that my account was delinquent which it was strange as I had funds in my account. I was notified that they changed the information from my bank account to my credit card WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. I used my credit card to make the additional payments and my bank account to make the withdraws of the regular bi-weekly payments. I told the agent that at no point I had authorized this and all auto payments should come via ACH not CC.

The agent apologized and updated the info and ran the payment. OK... I thought everything was good, then I called in 5/5/18 asking what my balance was and the agent said it was $318. I told her if it was necessary to make an additional payment and she said no as long as the next two payments will come out I will still be with the 90 day quick pay and the account will close. WELL NOT TRUE.

Here I am a month later and owing them over $2000. They said the 90 option was voided and when I asked why they said for the late payment WHICH I NEVER PAID LATE. In fact I WAS MAKING EXTRA PAYMENTS SO HOW AM I LATE if additional payments were done and nowhere in the contract states that additional payments are not part of the regular payments and even though an additional payment was done a regular payment must be made. This is a very shady company and WOULD NOT recommend them... PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF of a headache. It is very sad to see how they have lied.

I used this company when buying a mattress. They do have the same shady tactics of a finance company, but once you understand that, you can get around them. I got a generous approval amount but used only 1/4. The key to not getting played is to call Progressive & have everything explained & set up a payment plan that fits your budget. They tell you the full cost + interest upfront (2 to 4 years high interest) which is a turn off to most but I find it refreshing since credit cards don't, so you don't realize how much you are overpaying for everything you finance! Their only requirement is that you pay something regularly. They do have a minimum, however they allow you to change the payment amount & date without penalty, which is epic! Of course pushing out payments benefits them because you keep accumulating interest, but you can give yourself breathing room if you have an emergency. Try doing that with a car or credit card payment!!

The staff is very helpful & non judgemental. They apparently are NOT on commission & will not bully you into paying a certain amount. This company gets a bad rep because the sales staff are either misinformed or outright lie to make the sale. For example, I was told no tax by sales but tax is included in the loan. I was told free delivery, but that was only online so the delivery charge was on my loan. I was told I would be billed 90 days same as cash, but you have to call and tell Progressive that you want to be billed that way, otherwise they will take out the minimum for a 2 or 4 year pay off, at high ** interest! Also you are not "billed" it is an eft debit from your checking account, which is mandatory!!!. These things are the fault of the store staff, who are feeding you this ** not the finance company.

I highly recommend that you DO NOT take the potential monthly payment that the sales person gives you as gospel & use the calculator on your phone. For example the salesman told me $48 a month for a $500 item with the 90 days same as cash option. And I said, "How can that be when 90 days is 3 months and $500/3 month is is $167, before interest?" Don't be fooled, do your own math.

Overall if you watch your money and budget to keep the payment amount in your account by the due date, this is a good way to get necessities if your credit has some hits. Plus the fact they send you text & email 7 days before they take the money out and you have up to 3 days before they do, to push the payment out 1 to 2 weeks. If you are prone to over drafting, then ask your bank to let you open a 2nd checking account just for bills and put the payment amount (or any other bills) in that. The small fee for the 2nd account ($8 to $12 per month) will save you hundreds in overdrafts and you will know the money in the 1st account is yours free & clear to spend.

So again, the company has high interest and is only available at shady companies with money back guarantees that have small print to where you don't really get all your money back or some other b.s like restocking fees. But that is the stupid tax you pay for not managing your finances better, or not making good career or health decisions, or just bad luck. At least Progressive has a few outs for people and doesn't take total advantage like prepaid debit cards and car financing. Don't get me started there!

I hope this review was helpful. I was not compensated for my opinion and I am not a Progressive Leasing current or former employee. I have no relationship with the company or anyone who works for them. Just a worker bee tryna hip you to the truth. If you decide to use Progressive Leasing, remember these 3 take always: 1. Do not believe the sales people about anything except the amount you are approved for. 2. Do not open your purchase until you talk to Progressive to get the real deal on what you really got yourself into. In most states you have 3 days or more to cancel a purchase for a FULL refund, no b.s., but the merchandise must be unopened or in original packaging (so beware of free set up offers or offers to test your purchase -- ie computers & phones. It's a scam to open the pkg & keep you from getting your money back when buyer's remorse sets in).

3. Make sure you love what you bought (If you don't open it you can up/downgrade the item more easily.), you can afford it and that you set aside the money for your payments by either monitoring your email & bank account or getting a 2nd bank acct for bills only. Thanks for reading. Watch your spending. Monitor your credit. Pay your bills on time as best you can. God bless America. Buyers beware!

Original review: May 11, 2018

Please for the love of peanut butter... take these reviews seriously. I thought it was just people that don't pay and want something for free. NO... I'm telling you the TRUTH. They really are this horrible. I never felt compelled to write a review on a company that gave bad service before. I felt like the company shouldn't pay for one bad rep. This company is rotten to the core!!!

The payments for my Smith Machine was supposed to be weekly, everything was going fine and I thought to see it's just people that don't want to pay causing problems. Then I saw they started posting two payments a week. Now, for a fair and HONEST review, they would only collect one payment but they would post two. The issue with that is the bank is going to try to retrieve that money immediately until the vendor collects. If it's not available when it POST then that's an insufficient funds charge of $35.00. I was furious and tried to resolve it by sending the payments back and TRYING to log in and make the payments myself as a one-time payment weekly on the site. UMMM... NO, the web help was rude as hell (I AM NOT KIDDING) and unless.

THEY DID NOT HELP ME LOG IN TO MAKE PAYMENTS SO YOU CAN'T THINK I WILL JUST GET AROUND THEM AND USE THE SITE TO PAY ON TIME. Because of these issues I was fed up and called to have them pick the machine up. They transfer you to the scheduling and delivery department. I informed them I want to send it back, told them why and that I sent the payments back. The lady said she wanted to help; long story short we agreed that to the amount that I would pay to close the account. On 2/2/2018 I was to make a one-time payment with them over the phone for $865.20. I called and made the payment and received a paid in full email with zero owed.

They CALLED ME TODAY!!! saying I owe them 3 dollars and something cent!!! WHATTTTTTT??? Months later!!!! With we doing you a favor demeanor!!!! Called back and another person said I owe them 40 something dollars!!!! OUTRAGEOUS. The deal I made with them when I wanted to send the machine back is can't be revoked months after i held up to my end of the deal and paid it off!!! I told the lady about the payments I sent back. She calculated what I needed to pay to close the account. I paid it on time as agreed. Should be END OF STORY right? NOPE!!!! They have the nerve to say they are keeping my account to ** up my credit!!!

You have been warned!!! Making payments on time will NOT save you from this outrageous company. IMPORTANT When I SENT ONE PAYMENT BACK THIS IS ALL THE HONEST TRUTH SO PAY ATTENTION. They changed the name of the company three times to get the payment to go through again. They said to me, (and here is the proof) "You sent 4 payments back." But they trying to say I still owe one payment. But, the lady from shipping removed that one payment to save the account because of the way they handled my bank account.

Please forgive my caps, I am very upset because I tried to explain this to them and it fell on deaf ears. They will talk to you in a very condescending tone which will upset you to the highest level. Do yourself a favor. Go online and search for other leasing companies that are credit friendly. People that use them are not in the position to have them hold their credit over their heads to steal more money from them. The email says, "Paid in full", if I let them bully more money out of me now, who's to say they won't call again for more money!! I am sooooo upset. They waited months to contact me then they could have waited and not ruined my Mother's Day weekend by upsetting me so bad. Don't do it.

COMPANIES LIKE LEASEVILLE USE THEM!!! GOOGLE FOR COMPANIES THAT DO USE THEM. THERE ARE PLENTY. They need to act like they appreciate the business they get but as long as companies use them they will keep ripping you off so don't use Leaseville.com and check to make sure the company you use don't use them.

I was approved for 550 and I was trying to cover the downpayment and first month service with the rest of the loan amount. I'm paying it back. Why can't I use it all for what I want? No credit but, "We need your bank acct info, social and ID card." Lol. I don't think I'm using this loan place.

They told me it would be about 45$ more a month which seemed perfect. It was about 40$ more a WEEK. They told me it would only be about 20% more than the phone itself after the 90 day period. It was definitely more than double the phone cost if I let it go past 90 days. The lease is garbage. Such a scam. No wonder they don't credit check.

Applied to get me and my husband the new Samsung Galaxy S9 from Cricket. Applied with my info and was denied so we decided to use my husband's info since he makes more money and they denied him as well. They say they don't check your credit but I think they do. We make a decent amount of money each month and don't know why they would deny our application.

Updated on 04/09/2018: I left a review on March 28th telling of the bad service with this company. First they wanted a bank statement and I sent that, then they told me it wasn't detailed enough whatever that means. Today I get a call from a manager asking how she can fix things. I told her nothing unless you can get me approved then told her to never call my number again. They say they don't check your credit but it was on my credit report as a hard inquiry. Then last week when I was in cricket a guy got approved right there on the spot. I had to show proof of a bank statement but he didn't, WHAT THE HELL!

Well my experience has been great since the time I sign the papers and paid my 50 some dollars to start the lease. I was well-informed about the 90-day payoff which I did not do because of my own stupidity. Customer service is great and answers my call every time. The staff at Progressive Leasing also tries to help you with your issues. I hope they keep their great customer service and great leasing options not too many companies out there like this. I give them 5 stars for their great customer service and customer satisfaction.

I filled out the application in hopes to get a new laptop because I am an Owner Operator of an 18 wheeler and I need it to log into the load boards and my current laptop is on its last leg. I was originally Denied but the email instructed me to call and talk to them about it. So I called and was told I was denied but wasn't given any info as to why. She then instructed me that I needed to go to a link and complete a "Bank Verification" process which would help get my denial overturned. So I told her to email me the link and I completed it over while she was on the phone, she told me to call back in about 20-25 minutes and they would have more information.

So After doing the verification I called back and was told I was declined to due "Bank Activity" but the woman I spoke with would not tell me what that even mean nor would she attempt to put me on the phone with someone who could. All she kept doing was repeating "Denied" as if I didn't hear her the first time. I do not blame her for not knowing but I am unsatisfied with the way they do business with people and I will not be reapplying in 30 days when I am eligible. This is an outrageous business practice to not give any information to applicants so that we can correct anything that needs to be corrected to satisfy your application requirements. Seems to me that they do not care about anyone who does not automatically meet their requirements nor try to help in any way whatsoever.

I purchased a sofa and chair set with Progressive Leasing through my local Big Lots on 9/02. I called today to get the pay off total, I had calculated a balance of $386.73 after making 5 payments of 61.85 plus the initial payment of 51.60. My balance according to Progressive Leasing was $51.60 more than what I had calculated. Come to find out, what they don't tell you when you make the purchase and talk to the Progressive Leasing people at the store on the phone waiting for approval is that the first "initial payment" doesn't apply to your lease at all, it's just free money to them.

The rep today stated it's in the contract, section 2. PAYMENTS: A payment (the “Initial Payment”) of $49.00, plus sales tax of $2.60, totaling $51.60 is due when this lease is signed, and additional payments (“Recurring Payments”) of $58.74, plus sales tax of $3.11, totaling $61.85, are due every two weeks thereafter while the lease remains in force. On the day of purchase, the salesman said if you pay off the balance within 90 days it would be interest free, that all you have to pay today is $51.60 (based on total balance) and even if you have so-so credit they will finance it. (I believed it was an "initial payment" and would apply to the account balance).

After being put on hold and then hung up on my first call to Progressive, I called again and after requesting to speak to someone higher up. After extended talking I was offered a 50% reduction of the $51.60 = $25.80. I explained to Progressive that this practice is a ripoff, that people are being taken advantage of and being lied to. I would not recommend this business to anyone, it is fraud! There is a reason it is not BBB Accredited.

On December 10 of 2016, I purchased an iPhone 7 Plus at my local MetroPCS store, from there, we inquired about monthly payments to pay off the phone, which at the time was priced at the $765 at the time for the 32 GB model. We were recommended to using Progressive Leasing, but the seller did not briefly explain what had to be exactly done within 90 days, so we (my family and I) decided to go with the flow and pay at a weekly rate, and keep in mind we did not know how the 90 day program worked as it was not explained.

We realized that the retail price of the phone had already been reached and the other Progressive services fees had been added and we kept paying until around $1,300. I later realized that the company had been demanding a whopping $2000+ for a product that costed less than $1000 and since have stopped paying because it is totally uncalled for, especially for the interest rates. Do not use this company unless you want to pay for more than what you’re going to buy.

I have used Progressive for 4 purchases. Every one of them was paid off in 90 days, so all I paid was a little more than the items' price. A small price to pay for not having stellar credit, but needing items. When you do the math, the additional amount you pay on a early 90 day pay off is NO different than interest on a high rate credit card balance. Those giving one star obviously didn't do the math or ask the proper questions. My only issue is there is NO positive marks on my credit report for any of the purchases, which they should be showing up. I will be aiming a fuss about that on the phone in the morning.

I purchase a mattress set from the Mattress Firm. I was told they used Progressive Leasing. However I was never informed about the interest rate. The total cost was $800. But after making 6 payments of $157 they told me that I still owed $1200. Their interest rates are you unserious. DO NOT BORROW FROM THEM!

I’ve used Progressive for YEARS! I’ve gotten probably 6 things from them and always paid it off in 90 days. I’ve never had any issues. I’m not sure why they have any complaints because I’ve had nothing but great experiences with the service and customer support. I guess if you can’t do the 90 days it might not be great but that’s not the company's fault.

I leased a couple things (tires and rims) through Progressive and chose the 90 day payout option so I wasn’t paying interest afterwards. I paid a couple payments before actually having the money to pay it off. When I finally got the money I chose to pay them off so I was a couple payments less than what I was when I was in the leases. So I paid the remaining amount stated as the 90 day payout and the following day I had another additional payment come out. The payment that came out was my original normal payment had I not paid it off when I did. So I thought well this is bizarre, I just paid them off and another payment comes out maybe it was a mistake and I’ll just see about a refund. Nope! I was highly mistaken when I called them.

They said they would issue a refund but it would reopen the account and I would have to continue to pay my normal payment. So of course I let them keep it so I didn’t have to continue to pay but I will never do another Progressive lease again. The customer service was also horrible. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. Sure it’s a great thing if you don’t have credit but in the end it just ends up being a complete rip-off. Also, when you call they put you on hold for at least 30 minutes to an hour before they actually get to you. Highly disappointed in this company.

Please do Not ever use their services! 1. I bought 900$ of retail products I am now on the hook for 4,750$ and that number keeps climbing with their fluctuating interest rate which is in the neighborhood of 500% I imagine at this point... So far I have paid these clowns over 2,500$ for 900$ worth of products and still gonna have to pay another 2.500$ when all said and done... This company is used car salesman on steroids. Pure reptile behaviour... I'm not sure how they are even getting away with these rates but plan to talk with the BBB also local FBI office. 2. They do not report to the credit agencies for on time payments. Yet you better believe these snake ** clowns will be all over reporting to them if you decide not to allow any more extortion. Bottom line don't use this company for anything.

3. When you sign up you don't receive any paper work. It's all through e-mail and takes them a month to start sending you any info at all. The salesman try to push you into using these services like it's a good deal or something. Had I known the situation I'd be in with these bums I'd obviously just spent the 900$ off the top. The salesman make it seem like it's a line of credit you make realistic payments on and BUILD credit in the meantime. But NO it's the complete opposite. It's a MAFIA style extortion program that you get no reward for making on time payments and paying x5 the value. Pure insanity.

I would never recommend this place to anyone. Customer service sucks. Their service in general suck. They have no clue what they're are doing. They charge for their mistakes. They take money out of my account set up for automated payments. Then tell you're past due. HOW does that work. This place is a joke and unprofessional. This they said, "We need the last 4 digits of your phone number," give it to them. "Well we don't have that number." "Wait? You mean to tell me the main number I set up the account with you don't have to verify my account?" "Yes we do not have that number." Well Wow. Never recommend the overprice place to anyone. They charge you more and more for everything, little thing possible.

Progressive, you are no different from Rent-A-Center. I have never order from a such a place but I'm pretty familiar with their tactics. You overcharge the customer by an arm and a leg to make a profit. The taxes on the monthly payment alone don't make sense. Why are you taxing an item I supposedly paid for each month. A bed that cost 1000 in store cost me 1325 with Progressive Leasing, plus $59 to get started with the application. Early payout was $1400 and change. Without 90 day payout, the item would cost almost double, 2300 and change. Also, if you calculate the taxes each month, you are paying so much more than you think. Real scam. Save your money, go to the stores and buy direct. You will end up saving in the long run. Plus the item will always be there. I wish I had did my research before getting involved. Recently tried to do the early payout. Paid $766 and $68 in taxes alone. Total scam.

Pay off in 3 months and this is a great program. I have bought larger pieces of furniture through big lots using Progressive Leasing. I tried it out on a smaller item first... To make sure everything would go just as they said it would. And it did. I made sure to go online and pay every month or paycheck until the 90 days were done and my item was paid in full. So I applied again and this time for larger items. 2 sets of bunk beds and mattresses. I made sure I could afford the monthly payment to pay it off in 90 days. So far so good. If you don't pay it though the interest is ridiculous. But pay it off in 90 days... You're good to go!

These people will steal your money, don't do business with them, one payment didn't go through but they didn't call me about the issue instead they sent me an email saying it was paid off, a month and a week later they are charging me the payment and fees. They blame my bank for it, if they would have notified me within a week or at least 2 I would have avoided their stupid fees, oh and bad customer service. They will rip you off. Don't do it.

I bought a computer thru Progressive Leasing but wasn't satisfied with my purchase and their customer service was great and let me return the items at no cost to me. Zero hassle and voices over the phone. I will definitely be using them again when I find the right computer for me.
