Be Wary of Cash Advance Loans

cash advance - Get Good Credit

Everyone gets into a dire financial situation at some point in his or her life and a cash advance loan may seem like the only option to get out of it. However, it’s important to know the consequences of taking a cash advance as they can be very expensive to pay back and can leave the customer further into debt than before. It’s all about the long term versus the short term. If you feel you need immediate cash to pay back another loan, bill, rent, or deal with an emergency, a cash advance loan may seem enticing.

What exactly is a cash advance loan though? These are types of personal loans that give you access to immediate cash, usually in the range of $100 to $500. These loans will require you to pay back within the month or four weeks of the loan. The process works by giving the lender a personal check or electronic access to your bank account. This is because if you do not pay the loan back, they will cash the check or withdraw money from your account.

The problem with cash advances is that they will have extraordinarily high-interest rates or fees to get the money. For example, some places may charge between $10 to $30 per hundred dollars that need to be paid back within two to four weeks. After calculating the costs, this is basically (on average) an APR of 300% to 400%. When compared to a credit card, this is extraordinary as a credit card may only have an APR of 15% to 20%.

Most people going to cash advance lenders in the first place already have financial troubles, so it is almost certain they will be unable to pay off the loan + interest. This is how cash advance lenders make most of their money.

These loans still fall under federal law and regulation. This means that cash advance loans must submit every detail and payment in writing, stating the fees, interest rates, finance charges, and how much you owe back. It’s important to read through these contracts, even from reputable lenders, to make sure there are no hidden fees and extra charges you may not be aware of. It also helps as you can compare different lenders to see which one best fits your needs.

Keeping track of your finances and carefully planning out your budget is the best strategy to avoid the need for a cash advance. If you must take out a cash advance, then consider all the consequences as stated above and be careful. A cash advance should be considered a last resort as the fees and interest rates can really build up really fast.

  •   Ok so I've been holding off writing this review for about 7 months. And as you can see by the 5 stars I left I'm beyond happy with the services this company provided me. I was skeptical at 1st even though they had stellar reviews (which is why I chose them) but there's always that thing in the back of my mind of "well they probably won't be able to help me though, I will be that exception they cant fix". Needless to say they absolutely crushed getting EVERY collection I had off my report!!! I had about 5 grand worth of stuff on there that they managed to make disappear like magic. My credit has shot up over 150 points! I cannot say enough good things about them. I even referred my coworker to them after and they sent me a $50 referral check back! If you're looking to clean up your credit, don't wait, call these superstars and get on your way to feeling confident about your credit again. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I'm so grateful. Thank you fix your credit!!!

  •   I worked with Mia and Said for over a year, I believe. They were beneficial and responsive. Although we were not successful with all of my accounts, they still helped me raise my credit by about 100 points. So I stand satisfied. I recommend them. Not to mention there prices are very competitive. Thank you all.

  •   I called this place about 3 months when I decided it was time to fix my credit.   I spoke with Mia, she walked me thought the whole process in a 5 minute phone conversation.  It was simple enough so I decided to pull the trigger and signed up.  Its only been 3 months and already they have removed negative items and improved my score significantly.   I strongly recommend to give them a call as soon as possible, I waited too long and I wish I would have called sooner. I will update in a few months with the final results.
