Want To Know How To Get A Cash Advance?

By: Rachel Yoshida

When you get down to your last dollar and you just have to have more cash to make it until payday, it can be so distressing to not know what in the world you are going to do. You need gas for the car, lunch money for the kids, and a few more groceries on the table. These are very real life situations for many of us who know what an ordeal it can to make it through from week to week, paycheck to paycheck.

This sort of situation can be made even worse when you have no credit or bad credit because it will make borrowing money from a bank or getting a credit card impossible. Family and friends have always been a good place to turn to in time of need, but sometimes those options are not available either. So what do you do?

You may have heard about check advances and payday loan companies, but never have used one. If you use this handy resource responsibly, it can be a great answer to a between paycheck crisis. There are certain criteria that you will have to meet in order to obtain one of these loans, but it really is not that complicated.

First of all, for a check advance loan, you will need to have a checking account that is in good standing. The majority of check advance businesses will want to see your last checking account statement or maybe more than the last one. They do not usually do any kind of credit check, so you may not have to worry about that. The amount of money that you can borrow will depend on what the policies are of the business that you are going to use. Usually a check advance loan will not exceed two hundred dollars and will normally cost you twenty five or thirty dollars for the fee.

You can usually expect your check advance loan to be due in two weeks, but again, this will depend on the business that you deal with. When you take out a check advance loan, be sure that you know all the rules that apply to the loan. The majority of check advance companies will allow you to renew the loan for an additional period of time for an additional fee. This renewal option is a habit you do not want to get into because you can have a large amount of interest tied up in a small loan if you are not careful.
