You cannot go to Household Finance Company or any of those loan companies because you need only a small loan for a short time. You don’t want to be locked in to a minimum loan of $2,500 for a minimum payback period of one year. Besides, you wouldn’t pass the credit check and your credit cards are all maxed out!
What about the bank where you have your checking account? Forget it! Same deal, poor credit history. And the loan officer would snicker at a loan application for such a small amount of money.
But wait! Remember those ads you saw when you were surfing on your computer? The ones that promised “Immediate approval with no credit check. Bad credit, no credit not a problem. Get your cash now.” Think about it! You can get square with them in one or two paydays at most. Maybe the charges are a little high but solving your problem now without a hassle is worth paying a little extra.
You can apply for an online cash advance on your computer from the privacy of your own home. Since you’ve been on your job for over three months, all you need to do is give them your employment information. You have a checking account with some history and have not bounced any checks for well over a year. And you haven’t had a previous online cash advance. Fill out your loan application right now and you should be approved in an hour or two.
They will direct deposit the money right into your checking account and you can give your auto mechanic the okay to fix your brakes. Yes, you saw the interest rate on your loan. Depending on the state you live in, the fee will run anywhere from $15 to $20 per hundred. If you roll over the loan to your next payday, the fees will double but hey, peace of mind now is better than being stressed out without your car.
Do some homework on your computer and see which one of the online payday loan companies will give you the best deal. Learn what annual percentage rate (APR) is all about because it makes a big difference in who has the better terms. If you know someone who has done business with a payday lender, ask them about their experience. Hopefully, you will find a lender who is content with a fair profit and a satisfied customer who will recommend their friends and come back from time to time when a small, short-term loan will solve a sudden financial problem.
