Aarons: Making screwing the poor sound downright virtuous since 1955



Yeah, Aaron's "helps" people get "the things they need" (like big screen tvs and game systems) at "guaranteed low prices" (guaranteed by whom?)  If that's what you call charging legal-only-because-this-country-continues-to-worship-Capitalism interest rates with weekly payments to people whose credit rating is in the toilet.  In other words, Aaron's, like Rent-A-Center, sells itself as a Friend of the Poor by taking advantage of the poor.  Lovely.

I do think it's funny that the words "immature" and "disorganized" come up in this ad, since those words pretty much describe anyone who signs their name to an Aaron's contract.  "Sucker" does too, but I guess it didn't make the final cut.

  1. I've never bought appliances or electronics unless I had the cash on hand (in full) to purchase said item at a legitimate store or outlet.
    I never quite got the "need to" immediately acquire desirable-but-nonessential products concept.
