According to the report, Rent-A--Center plans to set up kiosks in Best Buy stores. California Best Buy stores could begin to open kiosks in the next several weeks.
Rent-A-Center's RAC Acceptance program would likely purchase products from Best Buy, and rent them to customers who can return the item at any time or pay it off at a mark up and own it.
