This whole rent-to-own scam is just taking advantage of people's sense of entitlement.

"You guys need to realize that this isn't any worse than a similar agreement to buy a car or home. Long-term purchase agreements almost always work this way (paying several times the price of just buying it outright), and it isn`t nearly as much of a scam as you`d think. 500-800 dollars today could easily be worth 2000 in 6.5 _years_ when you consider how that money could have been invested. It`s trivial (with a calculator) to work back how much 2000 over 78 months would be worth right now given a fixed interest rate, and I would be astonished if it`s more than 5% or so."

Except its 78 weeks, not months.

@Squidbush, payday loans happen out of desperation. This whole rent-to-own scam is just taking advantage of people's sense of entitlement.
