Payday loan tips guide

By: Mansi Gupta

End of the month and running short of money to pay off your bills, unexpected expenditure or money required to repay a debt? Now all your worries can be resolved with the aid of instant cash available by virtue of payday loans. 'Payday loan' as the name suggests is the cash given to make your payment at the very day.

In current scenario when usually expenses are more than the earnings, payday loans are definitely a boon. But prior to taking a payday loan there are quite a few things that should be borne in mind.

At first it is important to know that since payday loans are extremely fast, you should not rush to have one without deliberation. You apply for the loan online and it might get approved that very day. As soon as the payday loan companies receive your information, they verify it. If the verification is positive, your loan is right on its way. So before applying you must have a clear idea of the APR, fees and the terms and conditions of the payday loan company you are applying in. Surf the Internet, hunt for more payday loan companies and compare the interest rates, fees and other services of these companies. If a company has concealed the interest rates, fees, penalty amounts etc., don't deal with it. According to law it is mandatory for the loan offering companies to inform the loan seekers of this relevant information beforehand.

To save yourself from being tricked it is always better that you make sure that the company is registered with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Once you equip yourself with every piece of information, ponder over it and make a judicious move.

Secondly do not wait for a check to arrive at your place. Mostly the payday loan companies electronically deposit the required cash into your checking account in a day or two. So it is better that you take care of your financial emergency quickly.

Though payday loan is extremely beneficial you should not forget that the cash so taken is to be returned with a high rate of interest and that too at your next salary day. So if you are burdened by financial crisis, payday loan is not a wise idea. In this case you should also avoid going with companies that stretch the loan payback date because you might then be charged exorbitantly in the form of interest and the loan repayment can become all the more difficult.

At the end of the day it is better that you work out other alternatives such as planning a budget at the commencement of a month, minimizing your expenditure as much as possible by saying no to every weekend party, unnecessary shopping etc. In making a budget you can take help of a non-profit group in your state. These organizations offer credit guidance to consumers and at times this service is provided free of cost.

But if you still feel payday loan is the right choice then keeping the high interest rates in mind, borrow only the amount that you badly require, nothing more than that.
