LoanNow: Online Loans Fast!

If you’re like many people, experiencing more month than money is a regular occurrence. Experiencing cash flow problems can be frustrating. You know you have money coming; you just don’t have the cash you need now.

Or maybe you’ve been hit by huge unexpected expenses, like having your car break down or a tree smash into the roof of your house during a severe storm. If you don’t have a reserve fund, you may be stressing about how to cope.

Short term loans could provide a solution to your cash flow problem – or they could transform a temporary shortfall to a long term financial headache. Short term loans from pawn shops, credit card advances and payday loan stores all carry significant risks. Some short term loans can be very hazardous to your financial health. Before you resort to putting your possessions on the block or getting trapped into the cycle of payday loan debt, consider a better option – LoanNow.

installment loansCredit Card Cash Advances – Fast Cash, with a Catch

Many people don’t view credit card cash advances as short term loans, but they are. In fact, credit card cash advances can be an extremely expensive form of credit. With a credit card cash advance, you are borrowing against your assigned credit limit. Credit card companies recognize this fact and impose interest charges on cash advances immediately — no grace periods. And the interest rates charged for cash advances are higher than those for regular credit transactions.

Pawn Shops Require Collateral for their Short Term Loans

You might not think of what pawn shops offer as fast short term loans, but they represent a classic example of a secured loan. You present items of value and obtain cash on the spot in exchange for temporarily relinquishing possession to the pawn shop proprietors. The jewelry, electronic gadgets or other property you surrender in exchange for the cash you receive represent a guarantee for the pawn shop against default. Once you pay off the loan – plus interest – you can retrieve your property. But if you don’t pay by the deadline – usually within 30 or 60 days, you lose possession of your property for good.

Some Short Term Loans Are Actually Long Term Traps

At first glance, payday loans represent an ideal source for fast short term loans. Whether you apply online or at a loan store, you submit an application and generally receive a response within minutes or hours. If you have a job or another regular source of income and a checking account, you’re almost automatically approved. You receive your money immediately from a brick-and-mortar loan store, or by direct deposit into your account on the next business day if you borrow from an online lender.

With both types of payday loans, your repayment terms are tied to your paycheck, with payment in full expected on your very next payday, which could be as short as a week or 10 days later. If that sounds like it would be impossible for many borrowers to manage, that’s because it is.  In fact, according to the Consumer Finance Protection Board, 4 out of 5 payday loans are renewed at least once.

Borrowers who can’t repay their short term loans in full are subjected to rollovers, which are essentially entirely new loans with a whole new set of interest charges and fees. Each rollover results in a new loan with a fresh set of fees and interest charges applied. After just a few rollovers a modest loan of a few hundred dollars can quickly mushroom into a four-figure obligation many times greater than the amount of the original loan. Many borrowers eventually pay several times the amount of their original loans before they finally get out of debt.
