I get it, you need cash now; as in today. Never fear, there are three easy ways to get some change in your pocket before the end of the day. This fast cash can be used for a forgotten bill that is due in the middle of the month or for any emergency that should arise during the month, such as your car breaking down or your washer malfunctioning. If you need cash now here is how to get it done.
The most obvious choice, if you have job, is to visit a local cash advance or payday loan company. With these companies you can borrow money that will be repaid on your next payday. You usually fill out a check for the amount that you borrow and they cash it on your payday. Be advised that these places will charge you incredible amounts of interest on the money borrow from them, but if you have a job and you need money in a hurry, this is an easy option.
The next option is to pawn something valuable that you will then turn around and get out of pawn the next time you get paid. Many people do this instead of visiting a payday loan company because although the pawn shop will charge interest on the money they give you, it is far less expensive in the long run. Keep in mind that a pawn shop will never give you as much money as the item you pawn is worth, because they have to be able to make a profit if you never return for the item. Compare shopping amongst several pawn shops is the best bet in order to get the biggest payout for your item.
The last way you can make money fast is to sell something around your home. You would be very surprised to know how fast some things go on websites like EBay and Craigslist. Some items move faster than others, but people regularly scan the listings and buy up good deals at a startling pace. Items like televisions, game consoles, and exercise equipment go fast. The better the deal for the buyer the faster you will have money in your pocket.
