Shoppers can apply for a Progressive lease at Overstock.com with no credit needed and an initial $49 payment. They will own the leased items after exercising a 90-day purchase option, an early lease buyout, or by completing 12 months of payments.
The lease-to-own program is the latest addition to a number of finance services provided by Overstock, including robo-advising investment, lending, credit cards and insurance.
Other retailers have worked with Progressive as well. Big Lots currently offers its own lease-to-own service, while Walmart ran a limited test in 2016. Walmart still offers layaway options for in-store purchases made between Aug. 30 and Dec. 10, but the program doesn’t extend to online orders.
