How To Get Cash Fast

When you're in need of fast cash the pressure is high and stress is at the boiling point.  The good news is that there is a few easy ways to put cash in your pocket today.  I follow a three step process that works for me just about every time.  More often than not, I end up getting a cash loan (payday loan or title loan) but the steps that lead up to that help me greatly reduce the amount that I need to borrow.  The reduction is extremely important since fast cash loans are so outrageously expensive!

In this Hub I'll teach you how to get cash now in three parts.  The first involves parting with the extra crap that's in your house, the second is finding a skill that you can use to get paid, and the third (and hopefully unnecessary) step is getting a cash advance.  I'll show you some tricks to get the most out of each of these steps as well.

Pawn Shop Tricks

Most of us have stuff in our homes or apartments that we don't use, but other people would pay for and use.  This is stuff that we figure that we'll use someday, but never really do.  Today's the day that you'll put your extra crap to use!  

There are some different strategies for selling off extra stuff.  Some people will just gather everything up and drive to the pawn shop, hoping to get rid of it all in one stop.  This is a good idea, but it won't yield the most cash.  The most effective strategy is to find specific shops that will buy exactly what you're selling.  Books go to the bookstore, video games to the game store, etc.  This compartmentalized way of selling your things will pay more because each shop will have a much higher likelihood of selling it again, therefore able to pay you more.

Make sure that before you head out on the road you spend some time cleaning and polishing the things you're going to sell.  This improves the odds of them buying it and how much you'll get paid.  Guitars are a perfect example of this.  A guitar that's clean, in tune, and with fresh strings will look, sound, and play better, so you'll get more money!

Fast Cash Jobs

Another simple way to get cash right now is to work for it.  I know that seems a bit obvious, but I'm not talking about your regular 9-5, I'm talking about some creative ways to get paid.  There are tons of different ways for you to get paid within the next few hours, but your own skills and creativity will determine which one you choose.  

To find these jobs you can either go out into your neighborhood and talk with people, look in the newspaper, or use Craigslist.  Below I'll outline a few of the options of same day cash jobs, but if there's something that you're good at go out and do it.

The most common jobs that pay the same day are:

  • Bartender
  • Stripper
  • Landscaping
  • House Cleaning
  • Handing out fliers
  • Recycling
  • Babysitting
  • Waiting tables
  • Handyman
There certainly are other options, but these are the most common.

Go Get A Loan

If you've made it through the steps above and are still short your next option is to get a loan.  Hopefully you'll only need a fraction of what you started out needing, so repaying the loan won't be such a big deal.

You can get these loans online or in your town, and both are just about the same.  If you like dealing with people, go to a store.  If you don't want to leave your couch, do it online.
