Super impressed with progressive leasing. Handled the issue with care and concern. Very pleased with outcome and problem clearly identified as Big Lots.
Original review posted by user Jan 26
I was told by Big Lots that I would get reported every two weeks to the credit bureaus, greatly improving my credit. Paid of 1600 worth of furniture for 3100 in a year.
No reports to credit bureau. I tried to pay off the last of my account $104 instead of $160 for a last payment. It was accepted and my account was paid in full. Then Progressive voiced the $104, taking $160 by bank draft instead.
Unfair, the furniture is junk after a year, and I never got any closer to a better credit rating. Completely takes advantage of those trying to build their credit.
Product or Service Mentioned: Progressive Leasing Account.
Reason of review: Problems with payment.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
I didn't like: Price gouging, Unexplained leasing, Violating federal collection laws, Outrageous rates screwing people, Whole experience.
