Awhile back, I was low on cash, and it just so happened, my washer went out. Rather than get ripped off by a Rent To Own store, I went out in search of somewhere that would allow me to pay a little each week until the balance was paid off. I found Tom's Appliances does this, and more. Very helpful, and they even installed it for me. Sure, it was a little more expensive (though not more than $20), but I had the comfort of being able to pay for it over time.
Tom's Appliance get's an A in my book.
