Golden Tip:
The Truth about Payday Loans
The Emmaus’ House
What is a payday loan?
It is a small loan ($300-$1,000) that does not
require a credit check. They have short terms
and must be paid back quickly. They are
marketed as a way to help cover expenses until
your next paycheck. Because they have such a
short term, the cost of borrowing is very high.
How does it work?
Say you decide to borrow $300 from a payday lender.
You’ll write a post-dated check for $340 (the amount
plus a finance fee). The lender then advances you $300 for
a set period, usually 14 days. When the period is up, you pay
the lender $340 in cash, let them deposit the post-dated check or write
another post-dated check for the amount plus an additional finance fee. If you do not pay the debt in full, you will be
charged additional fees and finance charges.
Who uses these types of loans?
Generally anyone with a checking account and steady income can obtain a payday loan. They are most common for
borrowers who don’t have access to credit cards or savings accounts. Since these loans don’t require a credit check,
people with no credit or credit problems often turn to payday loans.
What are the negatives?
Many people get into trouble when they are unable to quickly repay the debt. Payday
loans are much more expensive than other methods of borrowing. In most cases,
the annual percentage rate on a payday loan averages about 400%, compared to a
standard credit card at 12% and a standard loan at 7%.
Alternatives to payday loans.
Negotiate a payment plan with the creditor, charge the amount to your credit card,
receive an advance from your employer, borrow money from your savings account,
ask a relative to lend you the money, apply for a traditional small loan or use a cash
advance on your credit card.
