What do Aaron’s and StraighterLine have in common? We've both come up with new and different ways for you to get the things you want in life.
StraighterLine has created a faster, more affordable path to a college degree, putting that degree in reach for many students who don’t have the time or money to do it any other way. Aaron’s offers customers an option to owning furniture, electronics, appliances and computers, putting them in reach for many consumers who are looking for an alternative path to ownership.
You’ve probably heard of Aaron’s. They are a leader in the sales and lease ownership of furniture, electronics, and appliances with more than 2,000 Company-operated and franchised stores across the U.S and Canada. Over 55 million households across North America know and trust the Aaron’s name. Aaron’s became one of our corporate partners in July 2012 because, as a company that is committed to their associates they want to offer them the best opportunities to meet their educational goals.
They are also committed to their customers. Aaron’s offers consumers flexible lease terms, affordable pricing, and a variety of products from quality brands like Toshiba, HP, Samsung, and LG. Aaron’s works closely with their customers to help create an affordable payment plan that are available in 6, 12, 18 or 24-month plans with no credit checks and continuously guaranteed low prices.
We value Aaron’s determination to help save their associates thousands of dollars on their college degrees with StraighterLine courses. And our shared value for helping people get what they want out of life when traditional options aren’t available to them creates a great partnership between the two of us.
