Avoiding Rollovers With Your Fast Payday Loans

Filed under: Advice — Desmond Carlisle at 10:27 am on Wednesday, March 8, 2006

The Payday Loan Times does not suggest that you apply for a payday loan online. Nor do we wish to stop you from doing so. We are simply here to provide both sides of the story to help you make the right decision. If this course of action is something you are considering, you should carefully balance the risks and rewards.

The Payday Loan RewardA faxless payday loan can be a tremendous resource for people in need of fast cash. When you apply online, you just fill out a secure form and get the payday advance you need in under 24 hours. There are no credit checks, or questions asked as far as what you plan on doing with the money. It's all yours, and you are free to take care of business.

However, a lot of people get in over their heads. The convenience factor comes at a cost, with high interest rates applying to just about every payday cash loan out there. When you extend the loan (also known as a rollover), or take out a second payday loan to cover the interest, you are heading down a slippery slope. One that may result in serious debt.

Simply put, you don't want to take out a cash advance if you aren't capable of paying it back immediately upon receiving your next paycheck. One and done. That's what this has to be if you want to make the most of your resource. The fees are steep as it is. Take out a cash advance in a second if it can help you with an urgent situation. But do not become lackadaisical when the loan is outstanding.

So think it through. Don't be afraid to ask questions of your payday lender and make sure it is straightforward about the terms of any agreement you enter into. Then plan ahead. Do what you need to do with your cash loans, then get it paid off as soon as you can. When it comes to these financial tools, the borrower's success hinges upon his or her ability to maximize the rewards and minimize the risk.

Be smart. Good luck.
