Understanding Your Remaining 12-month lease-to-own Total
There are several places in your lease-to-own agreement to view your remaining 12-month lease-to-own total and lease-to-own cost. Below are a few key terms:
This is the retail price of your merchandise before estimated sales tax.
This is the amount that Progressive Leasing charges for our lease-to-own service. There is always a lease-to-own cost, we do not offer same-as-cash options.
Remaining 12-month Lease-to-own Total
This includes the cash price, plus the lease-to-own cost for the full term of your lease. It is approximately twice the cost. This amount, plus estimated sales tax, is what you agree to pay by signing the lease-to-own agreement.
Cash Price + Lease-to-own cost – payments received = Remaining 12-month lease-to-own Total
Estimated Sales Tax
You are purchasing the item(s) from Progressive, and local sales tax is added to your recurring lease-to-own payments.
Your estimated sales tax rate is based on the address you provided on your lease-to-own application and the laws associated with that area. Your estimated sales tax rate may change at any time during your lease-to-own agreement depending on the area in which you reside.
Your payments are automatically set up to fulfill the 12-month lease-to-own total. If you’d like to take advantage of one of our Early Purchase Options, you will need to call in and change your payment amounts with one of our Service Representatives. You can log in to your account to pay the early purchase amount due.
The initial payment is paid at the time of signing. Once this is completed, you may choose to take the merchandise home or schedule a delivery. The initial payment amount may vary, but this first payment always goes toward the 12-month lease-to-own total and the 90-day purchase option* total. The card used for your initial payment will be saved as a payment method.
Automatic Recurring Payment Frequency
The payment frequency is based on the paydays you specified during your lease-to-own application. For example, if your paydays are bi-weekly on Fridays, your payments will be withdrawn bi-weekly on Fridays. You have the option to change your payment frequency at any time during the length of your lease-to-own agreement.
Additional One-Time Payments
You may make additional one-time payments at any time without penalty! You can make these payments online or over the phone with one of our Service Representatives.
Your recurring payments are automatically set up to fulfill the 12-month lease-to-own total. If you’d like to take advantage of your early purchase options, you may call in and one of our Service Representatives will help you make changes to your payment schedule.
12-month lease-to-own Total/Payment Frequency = Recurring Payment Amount
Your primary payment method is the bank account or card number you provide during your lease-to-own application. If you’d like to change how you pay, you do have the option to change your payment method at any time during the length of your lease-to-own agreement. If at any time a payment is unsuccessful, we will attempt to withdraw the funds from your secondary payment method.
If at any time you submit a new lease-to-own application with a different card and/or bank account, these payment methods will be used as a payment method on all open leases.
Your Purchase Options
Paying off your lease-to-own agreement early will help reduce your 12-month lease-to-own total. If you’d like to take advantage of one of our Early Purchase Options, you will need to call in and speak with one of our Service Representatives to set up payment arrangements.
You can buy out your lease-to-own agreement within the first 90-days*. This amount includes the cash price, plus the lease-to-own cost for the first 90-days*. Taking advantage of the 90-day purchase option* will save you the most money! You will need to call us to exercise this option.
If you are unable to buy out the lease-to-own agreement in the first 90-days*, the Early Buyout may be available to you. The Early Buyout is a percentage of the unpaid 12-month lease-to-own cost. Taking advantage of this purchase option will save you money on your 12-month lease-to-own total.
*The 90-day purchase option is equivalent to the three-month purchase option in California.
