Starting out on your own financially can be super tough these days especially when you don’t have anyone to help you out.
While it’s certainly scary it also feels like a bit of a personal life achievement that you can officially take care of yourself when you move out on your own and start paying for your own bills and utilities.
However, one thing I didn’t realize back when I started on my own several years ago is that many of your bills can actually depend on a good credit score.
My credit was pretty much non-existent, which might as well mean bad. I had no idea that companies could look at your credit and from there charge you what felt like sky-high deposits or other fees when your budget is already super tight.
Back when I was in my teens most people didn’t have cell phones yet, but I think we can all agree that they have pretty much become a must-have not only for staying in touch on a personal level but also for our work lives. As such, today I wanted to talk about how to get an affordable smartphone when you have bad credit.
Unfortunately, smartphones can be super expensive when you’re looking at the latest technology. Most people don’t have enough cash lying around to buy a $600+ smartphone right out and if your credit is iffy you might not qualify for buying a phone with some providers.
Luckily, Aaron’s has a NEW ARRANGEMENT WITH CRICKET so you no longer have to worry about being able to afford a smartphone.
Benefits Of Aaron’s Lease-To-Own Phones Option
- No credit needed
- No long-term commitment
- Can choose from new or previously leased phones
- All new phones include an accessories bundle pack with charger, case, and screen protection
- Amazingly affordable payments so you don’t break your budget
Unlike some other retailers, Aaron’s won’t just flat out tell you no if you have bad or no credit. They’ll work with you to get the phone you need for your lifestyle, too, not one that was considered the best tech a handful of years ago.
When you get your phone, you can also sign up for mobile coverage through the very affordable Cricket Wireless.

I use my phone so much during the day between staying connected with family and friends and also for work taking pictures and responding to email.
I especially can only imagine how much more difficult my work experience would be without a phone so I love that Aaron’s and Cricket have joined together so more people can have the convenience of their own reliable smartphone, no matter their credit, and a reliable network.
