There are many reasons to obtain a payday loan, as well as reasons not to get a payday loan. The main question to ask yourself is, will obtaining this loan help me or just put my farther back? HINT: If you are getting a payday loan because you think a $300 Gucci purse will help you then do not continue reading this article. Of coarse if you are in desperate need of the money that is one really good reason to obtain the loan. In fact I would say that would be the number one reason. If you need money to provide necessities for you and your family then of coarse, I advise you to take advantage of what the loans are set up for. But you must remember that you need to have the money in your account on the next payday or else you will be charged the extra fees. Now if you are borrowing money to pay the rent and then you still need money the next paycheck you can get another loan. I do caution you strongly about getting into the habit of doing this because you might not need to do this every paycheck if you figure out your finances. Most of the time people cant afford to pay back the entire loan and then not get another one next paycheck but they can afford to get a smaller loan. If you do this every paycheck then you will be bumping yourself slowly out of the hole you just dug.
Reason number two to get a payday advance loan would be to get money that is owed to you before you actually get it. To explain this in the easiest way would be to say that you are going to get a bonus at work of $200 and you know for a fact that you are getting this money in 2 weeks. You want the $200 now for some reason so you get the payday loan then use the bonus to pay off your dept. If you can afford to wait, it is recommended because you will have to pay the fee to get the money ahead of time.
Reason three to get the loan would be some type of emergency. A few examples would be; you got robbed and don’t have money to pay your bills, you over-drafted your bank account and if you don’t pay off the negative balance your bank will charge you fees, or if a child is sick and you need the money to pay for medicine. If you don’t have anyone to borrow the money from than an advance would certainly benefit you. Don’t be overwhelmed by the fact that you have to pay back all of the money next payday, just use the method I described above and you will be fine.
Some people will tell you that getting a payday loan is always a bad idea always, but I guess I just proved them wrong, didn’t I?
