Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Lease-to-Own program?
The Lease-to-Own program from Progressive Leasing lets you pay over time for the gear you want now. Progressive offers a simple lease program where you make payments over time. Once the payments are made in full, you own the gear. Lease-to-Own program is provided by Prog Leasing, LLC.

How does this program work?
You can complete the lease application online, typically in under five minutes. Once approved, please call a Musician’s Friend Gear Adviser at 866-979-0543 to make your lease purchase over the phone. Not all applicants are approved.

What do I need to be eligible and to apply?
You must be 18 years or older (19 years or older in AL), and have a valid Social Security Number, routing and account numbers for an open and active checking account, and a credit or debit card (pre-paid cards not accepted).

Does applying for a lease impact my credit score?
Applying for a lease with Progressive Leasing should not impact your FICO score; however, we do look at credit bureau reports, and this inquiry may appear on your credit report.

How much can I get approved for?
Approval amounts will vary. Progressive looks at several data points, including employment status and banking history. If it is determined that a Progressive Lease is a good fit, an approval and amount will be provided. The minimum lease amount must be at least $150.

Is there a processing fee for a Progressive lease?
There is no processing fee. Progressive charges an initial $79 payment when you sign the lease (payment varies in CA). This is your first payment and part of the total cost of the lease. If you are not approved, you will not be charged.

How long is the lease?
The lease agreement is typically 12 months. However, there are early purchase options that allow you to own the gear sooner.

How do I make payments on my Progressive lease?
Payments will be automatically deducted from your checking account or charged to your credit card. Your payment frequency will depend upon the payday frequency provided on your application.

What will my monthly payment be?
Your payment amount will be determined by the price of the gear you add to the lease. There is a Payment Estimator on the application link where you can estimate what your payments will be. Your exact payment amount will be found in the Lease Agreement, which will be available for your review prior to signing. If you have any additional questions, you can speak with a Progressive Leasing customer service representative at 877-898-1970 Mon.-Fri. 8AM-5PM (MT); Sat. 8AM-4PM (MT).

Do I have the option of buying the gear before my max lease term ends?
Yes. You can purchase the gear at any time, however the lease is set up to be 12 months in duration. If you pay it off in the first 90 days, you can take advantage of the 90-day Purchase Option* (3-month purchase option in CA) provided in your lease agreement. Within 90 days, you will only pay the actual cash price for the gear, plus the $79 initial payment (same as cash in CA). After 90 days, early buyout options are available, but vary by state.

Can I return an item that was part of a Progressive lease?

Important Information

The advertised service is lease-to-own or a rental- or lease-purchase agreement provided by Prog Leasing, LLC, or its affiliates. While no credit history is required, Progressive obtains information from consumer reporting agencies in connection with lease application. The initial payment is $79. All remaining lease payments will be determined by the cash price of the leased item and the frequency of payments. You will not own the leased merchandise or acquire ownership rights unless you make 12 months of payments or exercise an early purchase option. 90-day Purchase Option* includes a markup over invoice price (except for 3-month purchase option in CA). After 90 days, early buyout options vary by state. Not all applicants are approved or qualify for these terms. Acquiring ownership by leasing costs more than the retailer’s cash price. See lease for details. Leasing available on select items at participating locations only. Not available in MN, NJ, VT, WI, WY.
