Lease To Own FAQ
How does a LeaseCo transaction work with Killion?
We lease you goods under a Consumer Lease Purchase Agreement. (We generally call this agreement a “Lease” or “Lease Agreement” on our Website, including the FAQs.) Along with the initial payment at the time of the purchase, you make 9 monthly payments. At the end of your monthly payments period, you own the item(s).
Leasing provides you with the ultimate flexibility in that you can exercise an Early Purchase Option (please refer to the details about this option below) to acquire early ownership of the items or simply return the items in good condition at any time during your Lease term without any future payment obligation.
Please note, you must be current in your payments to take advantage of any of the options mentioned above. We reserve absolute discretion to cancel your Lease at any time. Please refer to your Lease Agreement for details.
What is needed to apply for a LeaseCo Lease?
- A valid email address
- A valid US address - Lease is not available outside of the US
- A valid Social Security Number

Are there any additional restrictions when you Lease products from Killion with LeaseCo?
Apart from the qualification restrictions listed above, a Lease is currently only available when you are buying items totaling between $50 & $2,000 (excluding shipping and taxes)
What is a Consumer Lease Purchase Agreement?
A Consumer Lease Purchase Agreement permits you to make periodic payments for the use of the products you have selected while you have possession of those products. You have no long term obligation to continue leasing, and can return the product to LeaseCo at any time with no further obligation other than for amounts past due.
In addition, you have several options to acquire ownership of the product you are leasing by taking advantage of our early payment options (for details on this option, see the question below – “What are the Early Purchase options”). A LeaseCo Lease offers flexibility that may make it more attractive than financing through a loan. Every month you can choose to continue to lease for another month, purchase the product at a discounted rate, or return it.

What are the terms of a LeaseCo Lease?
A Lease with LeaseCo requires an initial payment at the time of the order and 9 successive monthly payments. You can buy the products outright at any time, and every payment goes toward reducing the buyout price.
What are the advantages of a LeaseCo Lease vs. a typical loan?
We believe LeaseCo’s flexible monthly payments are more convenient and flexible than conventional loan financing!

LeaseCo Lease: Anyone who has a SSN and is over 18 years of age with a valid US address can apply. (Some restrictions apply)
Each month you may choose one of three options:
- Make the monthly payment

Can I return my items and end my Lease?
If you would like to return your products please contact our customer service at 888-568-7735 so you can coordinate it with LeaseCo. Your Lease Agreement will be satisfied once we receive the products, verify the condition of the item(s) and your account is in good standing.
Why is it important to make my payments on time?
LeaseCo will take your payment history into consideration for any future leases you may wish to obtain. Failure to make payment or repeatedly making payments after the due date may result in your denial of future leases.
We may also report your payment history to the credit data providers we use.
Who can get an LeaseCo Lease?
Anyone over 18 years old may apply. (Please refer to all the eligibility requirements listed above). Please note, residents of Oklahoma, Iowa, Indiana, Maine, South Carolina, Colorado, Wyoming, Minnesota, Wisconsin, New Jersey, Alaska and Hawaii are not eligible to lease with LeaseCo.
Do I have a limit on how much I can lease with LeaseCo?
Currently the lease option is only available for purchases between $50 and $2000. Once you have made a decision on what items you want to buy and are approved for a lease, LeaseCo extends you a purchase limit that covers the items you currently have in the shopping cart (plus shipping and tax).
How do I cancel my order?
Cancellations are subject to Killion's cancellation policy. Please contact Killion if you would like to cancel a transaction before receiving the item(s). If your lease is still in the "processing" state when Killion agrees to cancel your order, the lease will automatically be removed from your LeaseCo account. If your order has already been shipped, please contact LeaseCo Customer Service at 888-568-7735 and we will work with you to process the order as a return.
How do I make my monthly payments for the Lease?
There will be a down-payment requirement which is due at checkout, and subsequent monthly Lease payments are auto-withdrawn monthly from the credit card or debit card used at checkout. You can also access your account information on our site by clicking on “Your Account” section at killionest.com. Please contact customer service at 888-568-7735 if you have any further questions regarding your account or Lease payments.
Will LeaseCo remind me of my auto-payment withdrawal?
Every month we’ll send you an email regarding the payment date and the amount of your next monthly Lease payment.
Does LeaseCo charge an interest rate (Annual Percentage Rate)?
No, LeaseCo offers a lease to own payment option. Customers are entering into an agreement to lease the product, with an option to own, by exercising the Early Purchase Option. The Lease Agreement is not a credit transaction. The monthly Lease payment does not include an interest rate or APR and will not be used to calculate the Lease amount.
LeaseCo considers the following two factors when calculating the monthly Lease payment:
- The cash price of the product
- The state/city sales tax rate
The Lease Agreement outlines the maximum number of times the Lease can be renewed before the customer automatically obtains ownership. Please note that the Shipping charges for the items will be added to the Initial Payment at the time of the purchase.
What are your Early Purchase options?
To take advantage of the early payout option, simply refer to the table in your Lease and look up the amount referenced to each monthly payment date. It shows you the amount that you need to pay to own the items immediately. The sooner you pay off the Lease, the more money you save.
When are payments due?
Your payments will be monthly. The first payment will be 20 days after your Lease is approved. Following this first payment, all payments will be due on the same day of each month for the term of the Lease Agreement.
Do I need credit to apply for a LeaseCo Lease?
You can apply if you have no credit, bad credit or a bankruptcy. However, an inquiry will be made of your credit history or creditworthiness. We may also check past transactional history and report information about your Lease to credit reporting agencies. However, no established credit history is necessary.
Do I need to have good credit?
No. Good credit is not necessary but not everyone less than perfect credit is approved. Our goal is to help consumers with less than perfect credit purchase items they want through our Lease.
Can I get more than one product?
Yes, you may lease any number of products up to your approved spending limit.
What is the spending limit?
The spending limit is the total Sale Price of the goods you can lease.
Do I pay sales tax?
Yes. LeaseCo charges and collects sales tax. Sales tax is added to all Lease payments and buyouts.
Do you pull my credit score?
To verify your identity, we use the information you provide during the check-out and obtain a credit report from bureaus. But your credit score will not be impacted by our information verification methods.
Will my credit be impacted?
If you do not pay your Lease payment(s) or do not return your Leased item(s), this may be reported negatively on your credit.
