Sterling-Knight-Jewelry-Pawn-Cash-for-GoldA recent article by Dawn Papandrea on Fox Business News listed pawn shops as the 2nd best way to borrow $500! If you need a short term loan, Sterling & Knight Jewelry & Pawn in Villa Park and Hinsdale is here to help! Its fast, easy and safe. Below is what she had to say about pawnshops:

“Pawnshop loan. Believe it or not, a pawnshop loan is one of the better options to consider, says Mary Hunt, author of “7 Money Rules for Life,” and founder of Debt-Proof Living. “A lot of people think of them as back alley, but that’s really not how they work anymore,” she says. In fact, thanks to shows like “Pawn Stars,” they’ve become more mainstream than ever.

The way it works is you bring in an item as collateral for the cash they give you. The pawnshop must keep your item for an agreed upon amount of time (for instance, 90 days). If you come back and pay back the loan before the term is up, you get your item back. If you don’t, your item is sold

The perks: “It’s clean. There are usually no credit checks. And you have the option to not pay it back legally,” says Hunt. In terms of risk, the only thing to consider is how much sentimental value the item has, just in case you’re unable to pay for its safe return.”
