Rent-A-Center, Inc. (NASDAQ/NGS:RCII), the nation’s largest rent-to-own operator, today announced the arrival of smartphones and no-contract airtime plans to its Seattle-area stores.
The offer is expected to appeal to cash- and credit-strapped consumers put off by the high upfront cost of acquiring a smartphone.

Additionally, airtime plans may be reloaded at Rent-A-Center stores, regardless of one’s cellular carrier.
