How Much Money Do You Need?

So, what is your number. The term a few hundred dollars is rather vague. Technically, it means more than one, but not many. Let’s look at some possible dollar amounts and some ways that you can get the money.

If A Few Means $200

If this is your dollar amount, it is rather easy to get.

First, you could take out a loan. That is where we come in by making it easy for you to get a 200 dollar loan offer, even with bad credit. It takes just a few minutes to get an offer and if you do not like it, simply turn it down. There is no obligation.

Another option is to sell some property. You must have a few things lying round that you do not need and that could get you a few hundred dollars. All that you need is a market to sell it. It used to be that Craigslist was the “go to” destination for selling your used goods but that may not be the best option anymore.

A far better place to sell is on Facebook Marketplace. You get less scammers and lowballers. In addition, because of the huge market of Facebook, things tend to sell rather fast. Still, you should use the same precautions that you would anywhere else. Only accept cash and meet in a public place.

If time is not a huge factor, one final option is to simply work for the money. Jobs like waiting tables and delivering food are easy to get and they start paying cash, in the form of tips, immediately.

If A Few Means $300

If your definition of a few is a bit larger, you still have plenty of options.

The easiest option remains a cash loan and we, of course, can help you with that. Use the form at the top of the page to get yourself an offer. Even if you have bad credit, you may be able to get an offer for a loan for 300 dollars. This is because the lenders in our network are used to working with bad credit.

If a loan is not your thing, you still may have some other choices, one of which is borrowing money from relatives. If you can swing this, it could be a great way to borrow a few hundred dollars without all of the loan fees and interest that you might otherwise face.

When taking out a loan with someone you know personally, be sure to take a few precautions. Take the loan just as seriously and get everything in writing to protect both parties.

Got nobody to borrow a few hundred dollars from, no problem. You have another option, although it may take a bit of work. You can reduce your money needs elsewhere. If you need money for an emergency, you can always try to cut expense in other places in your budget.

There a lot of ways to cut other expenses. If you are current on your auto loan, call and ask to defer a payment. If you have a gym or cable subscription, have it put on hold. You may even be able to call your credit card companies and get them to allow you to make an interest only payment. All of these things can add up to the few hundred or 300 dollars that you need.

If A Few Means $400

If you need a larger amount like 400 dollars, you might have to work a bit harder to get it. Larger amounts will obviously be harder to get.

Of course, a loan remains a viable option and even if you want to pursue other options, it is nice to have an offer in your back pocket. We can help you get that. Just fill out the form at the top of the page and get an offer from a lender in our network. It might work for you or it might not, but it is free to find out.

Still not into a loan? No worries, there are still some other options.

One might be to turn to your employer. You usually get paid a week or even two weeks after you have worked your hours. This means that your employer probably owes you money. Many are willing to advance you money on your next paycheck and they will do it for no fee. It is of no risk for them, since you already earned the money, it is just a bit of paperwork.

Another possible solution is to sell something of higher value. This could be a newer model cellular phone or possibly a smart device such as an iPad.

A great place to sell this stuff is at a place like Gazelle. Gazelle allows you to simply mail in your devices and get paid and they have a sister company, ecoATM. With ecoATM, you can turn in devices in person and get cash right away. Not all cities have these but yours might.

Wrapping Up

To sum it all up, you have a lot of options if you just need a few hundred dollars. If you need it super fast, a loan might be the way to go. If you have time to wait, look into some of the other options.

If a loan is the way you decide to go, be sure that you review all of the details of your loan before you accept it. Not knowing what you are getting into can really turn around and bite you, so be careful.
