I remember being genuinely surprised at just how fast my cash loan application was processed and approved. I was worried that my bad credit score would be a problem, but when I went in to apply I was told not to worry. I did in fact receive the money I needed to get my car fixed, and as a result of that I was able to keep going to work to make money. I was very scared that I would lose my job because I had no other way of getting to work, but the loan I received took care of everything.

There are no national standards for payday lending – each state regulates the industry individually. In some states, such as Wisconsin, there are no restrictions. In states like that, Cash Central charges up to $27 per $100 borrowed, which is on the higher end but not uncommon among the lenders we reviewed. States like California and Washington have restrictions on the maximum amount a lender can charge. The lowest amount we saw Cash Central charge is $15 per $100 borrowed.
Revolving credit isn't available to everyone. It takes time and resources to develop good credit, but for those without, getting approved for a credit card often depends on your ability to secure the credit line with a cash deposit. If you had the cash, would you need the credit? Probably not, so secured credit cards do not offer any emergency relief. When you live paycheck to paycheck, an unexpected illness, layoff or any other paycheck interruption could leave you looking at eviction notices, saying goodbye to your car or facing other financial disasters. When you need a loan, you need it quickly and without a lot of paperwork. That's where fast cash loans come in.
