How does lease to own work at BrandsMart Leasing?
Leasing to own from BrandsMart Leasing can be a great way to get what you want right now. We offer a simple lease program where you make periodic renewal payments, and if you make all of the lease renewal payments or complete an early purchase option, you will own the merchandise.
Leasing is a convenient way to get the items you want without a big upfront payment, using credit, or making a long-term commitment. BrandsMart Leasing offers a great selection of name brand products, with affordable payments and flexible choices on how to own your merchandise.
BrandsMart Leasing provides a rental/lease purchase agreement. It is not a loan, credit, or financing. While no credit history is required for BrandsMart Leasing's digital approval process, we do obtain information from consumer reporting agencies and BrandsMart Leasing affiliates in connection with your lease application.
You will not own the leased merchandise or acquire ownership rights unless you make all your lease renewal payments or exercise an early purchase option. Not all applicants are approved.
What is the process? How do I get started?
See the local BrandsMart Leasing team member at your local BrandsMart U.S.A. store location.
What do I need to apply?
When you apply in-store you will need to provide the following:
- Name and contact information (address/phone) – Georgia or Florida residents only
- Social Security Number
- Government issued ID
- Income information
- Residence information
- Mobile Phone is required to receive verification text when applying
- Credit/Debit Card for initial payment
Do I need a Social Security Number to apply for a lease?
What forms of ID are accepted when applying?
We accept US-issued identification including Driver's License, government-issued Green Card, government-issued ID card, Military ID, Passport, Resident Alien Card & State ID card. Matricula Consular are not accepted as ID by BrandsMart Leasing.
How long does my approval last?
Approval is only valid at this store location during store hours for 7 days, including day of application, not 24 hours from approval decision.
Do you charge an application fee or any other up-front fee?
BrandsMart Leasing does not charge an application or processing fee.
How much will I be approved for?
It depends. Applicants are evaluated on an individual basis, and we look at many data points, including credit information and income to determine approval amounts. These data points will indicate whether Brandsmart Leasing would be a good option and, if so, the approved amount.
How will my merchandise be delivered?
BrandsMart Leasing or its authorized service provider will call you to schedule delivery of your merchandise. If you have questions about your delivery, please call 954-797-4097.
What should I do if my item is delivered damaged?
If you notice that your merchandise is damaged, please call 954-797-4097 immediately.
How long will it take for my item to arrive?
Delivery times vary based on the merchandise selected.
How can I set up an account to make my payments online?
Online payments will be available.
How do I make a payment arrangement?
Please call 844-641-5152 to make a payment arrangement.
Will BrandsMart Leasing be using my bank information to auto-draft payments from my account?
BrandsMart Leasing will not use your banking information for payment without your authorization.
Do I have the option of buying the product before my lease term ends?
Yes. You can purchase the product at any time. If your payments are up to date, you will have a Buy Out option for a limited period of time after you start a lease agreement. That limited period varies by store location, and you should ask a BrandsMart Leasing team member for the details of the Buy Out option available. Through the applicable Buy Out option, you can choose to purchase the leased merchandise by paying the original retail cash price for the item plus $99 (minus the amount of any lease renewal payments that you’ve already paid). If you owe any other charges at that time under your lease agreement you will need to pay those as well. The applicable Buy Out option is described in the BrandsMart Leasing Program Addendum to your lease agreement.
After the applicable Buy Out option expires, you can purchase the leased merchandise for more than the retail cash price but less than the total of remaining lease payments, as described in your lease agreement. This early purchase option amount is also explained in the lease agreement.
What if I plan to pay out my lease later?
Even if you intend to purchase later, regular lease renewal payments must be made. Remember you are leasing the merchandise you selected until you make all payments or complete an early purchase option.
What forms of payment do you accept?
BrandsMart Leasing accepts most debit and credit cards.
Do I have the option of paying cash for my first payment?
Not at this time.
What does BrandsMart Leasing mean by total cost of ownership?
The total cost of ownership includes the retail cash price of the merchandise plus the cost of lease services. It is the total of all scheduled lease renewal payments. You will also be responsible for applicable tax. The total cost of lease ownership will be more than the retail cash price of the merchandise. The total cost of ownership, including the cost of leasing, is shown in the application and check out process.
What if I can no longer afford my payments?
We understand that unexpected situations come up that may prevent you from keeping your merchandise. If you find yourself unable to continue with your lease, please call Customer Service to discuss your options: 844-641-5152.
Does BrandsMart Leasing check my credit?
As part of our digital application process, BrandsMart Leasing will check credit history and creditworthiness and rely upon customer reports and information obtained from third-parties and affiliates of BrandsMart Leasing in considering your application.
How is a lease different than a credit transaction, financing, or a loan?
A BrandsMart Leasing transaction is not credit. With a credit transaction, financing, or a loan, you make a purchase with borrowed money that must be repaid, often with interest. In a credit transaction, you owe for the balance of your debt even if you are no longer in possession of the merchandise. With a lease, you sign an agreement to lease merchandise from BrandsMart Leasing. Brandsmart Leasing owns the merchandise, but you can take ownership after making all required lease payments or through an early purchase option. But, if you choose to return the merchandise before you complete your ownership plan, you don’t owe anything more on the merchandise if you are current on your payments when it is returned according to the terms of your agreement. Ownership of leased merchandise is optional.
Does BrandsMart Leasing charge interest?
You are leasing to own your merchandise, not financing the purchase with BrandsMart Leasing. So, there is no interest charged like in a credit transaction. However, your total cost of ownership does include the cost of leasing which is the amount BrandsMart Leasing charges you in addition to the retail price of the merchandise for the services and benefits of leasing to own with BrandsMart Leasing . So, your total cost of ownership will be more than the retail cash price. The retail price, the cost of leasing, and the total cost of ownership are clearly disclosed in your lease agreement.
Will a lease application impact my credit?
Applying for a lease with BrandsMart Leasing should not impact your FICO score; however, we do look at credit bureau reports, and this inquiry may appear on your credit report.
Is this a hard or soft hit on my credit?
BrandsMart Leasing will make inquiries to Transunion & Experian, including soft inquiries against traditional credit files. Other secondary bureaus, however, do not offer this option, and inquiries to those bureaus (none of which prepare FICO scores) may be considered hard inquiries.
What is the difference between a hard and a soft credit inquiry?
An inquiry occurs any time an individual or business requests a copy of a person’s consumer report – also known as a credit report. The bureaus keep a record of all inquiries made. Creditors and scoring models could consider inquiries a negative factor in a consumer’s report. On a soft inquiry, the inquiry is only visible to the consumer if requesting a copy of their own consumer report, whereas a hard inquiry can be seen by other credit reporting agencies.
Does BrandsMart Leasing report to credit bureaus?
No. We do not currently report payment information to credit bureaus.
Can I build up my credit by doing a successful Lease?
BrandsMart Leasing provides a lease to own program, not credit, and does not report payment information to credit bureaus.
Will you service my leased merchandise?
One of the benefits of leasing to own is that leased merchandise that is defective will be repaired by BrandsMart Leasing, or its authorized service provider, according to the terms of the lease agreement.
What is BrandsMart Leasing’s return policy?
Once your leased merchandise has been delivered, you can call 844-641-5152 to schedule a time for return or pick-up as stated in your agreement. However, you will not receive a refund. Your item must be returned with all provided accessories.
Can I cancel my order before delivery?
If you have not yet received your leased merchandise, you can call the BrandsMart Leasing store location to cancel your order.

What Information Do We Collect?
We collect two main categories of information from or about you: Personal Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information ("NPI").
We define Personal Information as information that directly identifies an individual, such as name, residential street address or postal address, email address, social security number, date of birth, driver's license number, geolocation, government issued identification number, phone number, credit card number, bank account or other financial institution account number. Personal Information may also include details about devices used to access our websites or mobile applications such as IP address, browser information, device information, and operating system information. We may also collect information about the use of websites, mobile applications, social media presence, and internet-enabled services and platforms by automated means, such as cookies, web beacons, HTML5 localStorage, and other technologies. We discuss this further below in our “How Do We Collect Your Information” section.
We define Non-Personally Identifiable Information or NPI as information about an individual or about categories or groups of individuals that does not identify you individually. This may include your gender, vehicle information, occupation and other employment information, personal references, and residence-related information such as lease and ownership information, payment history with us, and other information.
How Do We Collect Your Information?
We may collect Personal Information from you in a variety of ways. For example, we collect information you provide when you seek to lease our products, or otherwise enter into a contractual arrangement with BrandsMart Leasing at physical store locations or through our websites, and when applying for a lease or a lease amount. We may also collect Personal Information from or about you when you visit a website owned or operated by BrandsMart Leasing, when you use our mobile applications, enroll in automatic payments, visit social media websites, when you encounter BrandsMart Leasing at an event, or when you enter a promotion we offer.
On occasion, we use third-parties to provide us with additional Personal Information about you. For example, if we know your name and postal address, we may use a third-party to provide us with your email address. In addition to what is described below, we use this information for market analysis, marketing, and other business purposes, including enforcement of contractual obligations. We may also collect Personal Information about you from consumer and/or credit reporting agencies, individuals who we believe may be associated with you, and from our corporate parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, and divisions, among others. If you provide Personal Information to us regarding others, we rely on you to obtain that other person's consent for disclosing their information to us and inform that other person about how we will use the information and our contact details for any queries.
In addition to what is described below, we collect NPI through many sources, including from information that you and third-parties provide to us.

We may also de-identify Personal Information that we receive from you or from third-parties so that it cannot be used to identify a specific individual.
We may transfer or provide a copy of information covered by this Policy, including Personal Information, in connection with a merger or sale or store closing (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) of all or part of BrandsMart Leasing business or as part of a corporate reorganization, stock sale or other change in control.
Sharing With Corporate Entities and Third-Parties
We may also share Personal Information and NPI with our parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, and service providers who provide services to us or on our behalf and agree to only use such information for the purpose for which it was provided and in accordance with this Policy.
We may also provide Personal Information and NPI to credit bureaus, third parties collecting amounts owed to us, and third parties to whom we assign your account for collection purposes.
We may also share the Personal Information with select third-party vendors, business partners and other companies so that they can send you promotional materials about goods and services (including special offers and promotions) offered by them. After the information is provided to such third-parties, the subsequent use or disclosure of such information is subject to those third-parties' privacy policies and practices.
We may also use services hosted by third-parties to assist in providing our services and to help us understand our customers' use of our products. A third-party service may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including, for example, your IP address, the third-party's cookies, or any of the other categories of information itemized under Online Activities, above.
BrandsMart Leasing uses "interest-based" ads also known as "online behavioral advertising" or "OBA." Online behavioral advertising is advertising that is directed to you based, at least in part, on your Internet browsing behavior across the web. Although we do not share Personal Information with the third-parties that conduct advertising operations on our behalf, these third-parties and their affiliates do collect certain information as a result of their "tags" being on our website. The information they collect includes the name (URL) of the web pages you view while on our site, your IP address, time of visit, information about your browser software, information about your device, and randomly-assigned identifiers stored and/or transmitted using cookies or similar technologies, which they use to target and serve advertising. BrandsMart Leasing uses third-parties that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA), which prescribes certain norms of conduct and provides an opt-out for behaviorally targeted ads, as discussed in "Your Options Regarding Personal Information," below.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards intended to protect against the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, or disclosure of Personal Information and NPI. Although we take such precautions seriously, it is impossible for us or others to guarantee the safety and security of Personal Information and NPI.
Will this Policy Change?
This Policy may be updated periodically to reflect relevant changes in our information practices. We will post a notice on our website to inform you of significant changes to this Policy. We will also provide additional information regarding changes to this Policy as may be required by law.
Your Options Regarding Personal Information
You may request that we correct, update or amend the Personal Information we hold about you. To update us regarding changes in your Personal Information, please contact us at the store location at which you have done business or you may contact us as described below.
You may elect to opt-out of receipt of email and text communications from us by following the instructions provided in such communications or by contacting us as provided below. Even after opting out, you may still receive service oriented, non-promotional communications from us and promotional communications from other third-parties as a result of their own interactions or transactions with you. Please allow time for us to process your request or contact us should you have any concerns about your opt-out request
"Do-Not-Track." Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative that has developed a technical "flag" or signal that an end-user may be able to activate within their browser software to notify websites that they do not wish to be "tracked" by third parties as defined by the initiative. The initiative, however, has not reached a consensus as to exactly what technical or other actions those parties receiving the signal should take. As a result, Do-Not-Track has not yet been standardized and most websites, including BrandsMart Leasing, do not alter their behavior or change their services when they receive a "do-not-track" flag or signal.
You can, however, make decisions about your privacy and the ads you receive. As explained in the section above, "Sharing With Corporate Entities and Third-Parties," BrandsMart Leasing uses online behavioral advertising. You can control whether companies use your Personal Information to serve you behaviorally-based advertising by visiting the DAA web page and using the DAA's opt-out: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ . The DAA opt-out requires that cookies not be blocked in your browser.
As an alternative to the DAA opt-out, you can also elect to block all cookies from first-parties (such as BrandsMart Leasing) and from third-parties (such as entities involved in advertising) by using the cookie blocking options built into your browser software. For example, in Internet Explorer 9, you can block both first and third-party cookies by selecting those options at Tools/Internet Options/Privacy/Settings-Advanced/Override Automatic Cookie Handling. As another example, if you are using Firefox 25, you can "uncheck" Accept All Cookies under Firefox Preferences/Privacy-Use Custom Settings For History/Accept Cookies from Sites.
Please note, however, that if you do decide to block cookies, some parts of our website may not function correctly.

DISPUTES/ARBITRATION/CLASS ACTION WAIVER
1. DISPUTES SUBJECT TO INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION/ CLASS ACTION WAIVER YOU AND WE AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE BRANDSMART LEASING SERVICES (“Disputes”) SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY IN BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN LITIGATION IN COURT. This Agreement to arbitrate applies to all Disputes, whether based in contract, tort, statute, or any other legal or equitable theory. Notwithstanding this Arbitration Agreement, you or BrandsMart Leasing may bring Disputes in an appropriate small claims court so long as the relief requested falls within the jurisdiction of the small claims court, but neither you nor BrandsMart Leasing may bring claims in any other court. You and we agree that any questions about the scope or enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement will be decided by a court, not the arbitrator. You agree that we may file a lawsuit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
YOU AND WE EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY ABILITY TO BRING A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION IN ARBITRATION OR TO SEEK RELIEF ON BEHALF OF A CLASS IN ARBITRATION. YOU ALSO EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO BRING A CLASS ACTION IN COURT OR TO PARTICIPATE OR OBTAIN BENEFITS IN A CLASS ACTION SOMEONE ELSE BRINGS IN COURT. You and we acknowledge that this class action waiver is integral to the Arbitration Agreement. If a court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver is invalid or unenforceable, you and we both agree that this Arbitration Agreement will not apply, and any Dispute shall be resolved in court. That is, you and we agree that this class action waiver cannot be severed from this Arbitration Agreement. It is the express intention of both parties not to proceed with any Dispute by way of class arbitration. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. Arbitration is a process to resolve disputes before a neutral person (an arbitrator) instead of having a trial in court with a judge and/or jury. THEREFORE, BY ENTERING INTO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY. YOU ARE ALSO WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO BRING CLAIMS IN COURT AND TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION . An arbitrator can award the same damages and relief as a court except that, in the case of injunctive or declaratory relief, an arbitrator cannot issue an injunction or declaratory judgment that extends beyond you and BrandsMart Leasing and affects BrandsMart Leasing obligations or liability to other parties. An arbitrator can, however, issue an injunction or declaratory judgment on your claims so long as it is limited to providing you with individual relief. Arbitration is more informal than litigation and generally provides a quicker and more cost-effective way to resolve Disputes, but there is only limited discovery in arbitration, and there is only very limited review of an arbitrator’s decision.
2. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES AND RULES You and BrandsMart Leasing agree that this Arbitration Agreement is subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Section 1, et seq. Arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Consumer Related Disputes Supplemental Procedures. Those rules are available at www.adr.org. or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. A single arbitrator will decide our Disputes. To initiate an arbitration, you must file a demand for arbitration with the AAA, following the AAA’s rules and procedures as set forth at www.adr.org. Arbitration shall be held in the state in which you reside at the time you initiate the arbitration. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
3. COSTS AND ATTORNEY'S FEES IN ARBITRATION If you file an arbitration claim against BrandsMart Leasing hereunder, BrandsMart Leasing agrees to pay the AAA initial filing fee on your behalf for claims totaling less than $1,000, unless the arbitrator determines that the claims are frivolous. Except for such initial filing fee, you and we agree that we will each be responsible for our own costs and attorneys’ fees in arbitration. The arbitrator’s fees will be divided between us as set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Related Disputes Supplemental Procedures. If you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, BrandsMart Leasing agrees to pay you for any arbitrator fees you paid in the arbitration or to pay the arbitrator for any fees owed by you. If you prevail in the arbitration and are entitled to recover your attorneys’ fees or costs under an applicable statute or common law doctrine, then the arbitrator has the authority to award you such fees and costs but is not required to do so. BrandsMart Leasing agrees that it will not seek to recover its attorneys’ fees and costs from you even if it prevails in the arbitration and is entitled to recover those fees and costs under an applicable statute or common law doctrine, unless the arbitrator determines that the claims are frivolous.
CUSTOMER TRANSACTION - CONFLICTS
You expressly agree that these Terms of Service for use of the BrandsMart Leasing Services are independent and separate from the contract for a lease transaction that you enter into with us, including the BrandsMart Leasing Arbitration Agreement entered into in connection with a lease transaction. Any lease transaction with us is governed by your Lease Purchase Agreement, Rent to Own Agreement, Consumer Rental Purchase Agreement, Lease Agreement with an Option to Purchase, Lease Agreement, or Rental Purchase Agreement (as denominated under state law) and is the only contract between you and us with respect to the merchandise and services set forth in that contract. Nothing in these Terms of Service should be interpreted to change or modify any terms of that contract, or the BrandsMart Leasing Arbitration Agreement entered into in connection with a lease contract, or to create a separate contract between you and us regarding the lease transaction. In the event of any conflict between these Terms of Service and the contract covering your lease transaction or the BrandsMart Leasing Arbitration Agreement entered into in connection with a lease contract, the contract covering your lease transaction and such BrandsMart Leasing Arbitration Agreement, will apply and prevail.
