Does Aaron's check my credit?
As part of our digital approval processes, Aaron’s will check credit history and creditworthiness and rely upon customer reports and information obtained from third-parties in considering your application. We do check credit sources; however, we look at many other data points to make a final decision, and we regularly approve customers that other stores won’t, including customers with less than perfect credit or very little credit history.
How do I make my payments?
Your first payment for an online order must be made using a debit or credit card. Once the first payment is made, your local store will accept cash, checks, money orders, and all major credit cards, or you can continue to pay online. If you are interested in online payments, please go to myaccount.aarons.com and click on “Register.”
Can I pay out my lease early?
Yes. You can purchase the product at any time. If your ownership plan is longer than 6 months, you can take advantage of Aaron’s same as cash option. For those new agreements with a payment option longer than 6 months, if you payout your merchandise within the applicable same as cash period, you will pay the cash price, plus tax and applicable fees (if any). The same as cash period varies by location but is generally 120 days. For California residents the same as cash option is 90 days for all rental purchase agreements.
In addition, after the same as cash option expires, you can purchase the merchandise for more than the cash price but less than the total of remaining lease payments, as described in your lease agreement. This early purchase option amount varies by state and is explained in the lease agreement.
What is Aaron's return policy?
Once your item has been delivered, you can contact your local store to schedule a time for return or pick-up as stated in your agreement. However, you will not receive a refund. But don’t forget about our lifetime reinstatement benefit; you can restart your lease anytime you like on the same or comparable value merchandise (excludes lawn equipment). See a store associate for complete details.

Is this chest freezer made in America or assembled in America? Or is made in China?

Asked by: Farina
Hi Farina, Thank you for reaching out! Thank you for checking with us and your interest in this awesome Freezer! Our products are designed by our GE Appliance Engineers right here in the USA. While many are manufactured here in the US other appliances are made worldwide. We do not have the country of origin for this product as a whole as it is produced globally, but it will be shown on the individual model on the rating plate and on the packaging.

Hi The door does not stay open is there a way to adjust it? Or how can we fix it? thank you

Asked by: tom356
Hi tom356, thanks for reaching out to us. I'm happy to help. All chest freezers have a stopping point for the lid so it does not go all the way back and hit the wall behind it. Lids generally pivot on hinges and pistons to help raise and stop them at about 80 degrees. We do not have an approved way to adjust this. I apologize for any inconvenience. Dallas@GEA

Freezer was delivered 11-13-20. Delivery guys were super nice and put the freezer right where I wanted it. My question is - Can you adjust the lid where it will stay up on its own? Very disappointed that I have to hold the lid up,

Asked by: Anonymous
Hello farm girl, Thanks for the question and thank you for purchasing our freezer! We are very glad to help. The lid is supposed to stay up when you open it. There may be an issue with the hinges for the lid. I recommend scheduling a warranty service appointment with an authorized GE Appliance technician who can accurately diagnose and take care of this for you. You can schedule an appointment online at: http://www.geappliances.com/ge/service-and-support/service.htm Or if you prefer to call, you can reach our scheduling department at 1-800-432-2737, Mon-Fri 7 am – 10 pm ET, Sat-Sun 8 am – 6 pm ET. We are sorry for the concern and apologize for any inconvenience this causes. We hope that you are safe and well. Sincerely, Richard

We have a door width problem. Can the lid be removed so that we can get it through a 31'"door opening, or is the lid not removable?

Asked by: Edward 44
Hi there, Edward 44, Great question! Yes, the lid can be removed. View page 10 in the Installation Instructions here: https://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-1000372-1.pdf Thanks so much for checking!
