7 Best Rent-to-Own Furniture Stores (Some With No Credit Check)

Interior of a rent-to-own furniture store

Rent-to-own programs offer an option for those who need to make a big purchase now, but can’t afford to pay the whole thing at once.

However, if you’re capable of paying upfront or saving up to buy the item, you may not want to choose a rent-to-own program. You’ll end up paying more overall leasing an item than you would buying it outright.

For more, see the Federal Trade Commission’s notice on rent-to-own programs.

Below, we’ve compiled the list of major rent-to-own furniture stores, including some that don’t require a credit check.

What We Recommend

We’ve ranked FlexShopper and ColorTyme at the top of the list for their positive customer feedback, flexible payment choices, and ease of application for those with poor or no credit.

FlexShopper does obtain a credit report, but not from any of the three major credit reporting agencies. It has good customer reviews and flexible payment options, but it’s online only.

ColorTyme is a better choice if you prefer to shop in person for your furniture. It also has positive customer feedback, plus it’s a good choice for those with poor credit or no credit, as it does not perform a credit check.
