The payday loan industry does not want you to know what I'm about to tell you. It's actually possible to save a significant amount of money when getting a payday loan once you know this trick. You do not have to get trapped into a downward spiral of constant debt. You can actually use this knowledge to your advantage.
What is this trick? It's not a huge secret but really quite simple. But before I reveal this to you and me ask you something-what is the real reason you want a payday loan?
How you answer this question is very important. Are we talking about something that you really need or is it just something you want? Let's get straight to the point-are you just got to buy something whimsical or answer a specific need?
The modern advertising world has us all by the short hairs. It's been said that the average person is bombarded with over 30,000 ads a day gathering their attention. Depending on who does research the numbers are fairly different but it doesn't matter because the fact is you are hit with at least 100 to 1000 ads per hour!
Those ads have powerful pull. They grab your eyeballs and instinctively reach for your wallet. To separate you from your money.
So if the reason you want a payday loan is to buy something of limited value, say, a new toy, the latest electronic gizmo, a shopping spree or some other whimsical buying flurry, then by all means do not get a payday loan.
Now if it is something that you need that fits the status of an emergency, and I mean a true emergency like having to go to the dentist then a payday loan may be just what you need. Now banks don't like emergencies and the process can take weeks so they are pretty much out of the question. Cash from your credit cards can be just as bad.
So now we've determined that the answer your question is that you need a payday loan because an actual emergency exists, I'm going to tell you the secret on saving money with a payday loan.
This short list of things will save you lots of money. Number one-be sure and search for the best deal. You can only get a payday loan from a lender in your own state, not outside the state line.
The second point-understand the terms and know the interest rates. The interest rates on payday loans are always higher than regular loans because they only last a couple of weeks. But you do not have to fill out a credit application for one of these. So if you have bad credit this could be a good advantage but it is also a risk for the lender. Once you understand exactly what you're paying leads us to point number three.
Whatever you do, pay off according to schedule. This is the single most important thing you can do and what you establish a good history with your lender, in the future if you ever need one again you will most likely get a reduced rate.
