Rent to own is NEVER a good idea from a financial standpoint. The cost you will ultimately pay over the term of the contract is many times what the furniture would actually cost you should you buy it new yourself.
If you have limited funds, why not try the clearance centers of retail furniture stores, or try an upscale charity consignment shop or used furniture store.
The money you will save would be better put to use in a rainy day emergency fund, or for your retirement
Woodhaven is Aaron's own brand of furniture. Depending on how the normal wear and tear is in your own household, the furniture can last quite awhile. I have also seen it fall apart within a year. However, beware of the terms on a rent to own contract. Before you sign, make sure you realize how much you would really pay for the furniture by the end of the term. Aaron's is required to tell you the total cost of the Lease Agreement.
Woodhaven leased from Aarons was actually one of the smartest things I've done in home furnishings in years. The actually cost on the product was well within reason and the service was way beyond the expectations. No hassle delivery, No charge and complimentary follow up. I was impressed with the product and service.
