Purchased a $80 patio set (3 piece) with "same as cash" from Big Lots. They approved my credit line to $1170.00 Thank God I didn't purchase no more than what I did purchase. I purchase two pillows to go inside the chairs and the total amount of my purchase was $120.
After a couple of days, I decided to go ahead and pay off the balance, since the girl at Big Lots told me if I paid off the account within 90 days, it would be "same as cash".
Well, when I looked at my account, there was a $100. charge added to it, and I can't seem to make contact to find out why that was tagged on my "same as cash" balance.
So, in order for me to pay off my account, I will have to pay $220. and if I take it to full term, it will cost me $400. How does one get away with that? This will never happen again. I filed a consumer complaint and waiting to see what they say. This is not fair!
