Need money in a hurry? Can’t figure out how to get it? We can help. Take a look at some simple ways that you can get money in your hand today. You might be surprised at just how easy it is.

There are more ways than you think to get some money in a hurry. Take a look at our top picks for getting cash in your hand as quick as today.

1) Turn In Your Back Up Cell Phone

You likely have an old cell phone lying around, and you can use it to put cash in your hand today with the help of an ecoATM.

Here Is how It Works

First, go locate an ecoATM near you. They are located conveniently across the country in retail locations and grocery stores. Before setting off for your location, be sure to do a factory reset on your device. This will protect your personal information.

Once at the ecoATM, insert your device into the machine so that it can be examined. The machine will then make you a cash offer for your phone. If you like the offer, you can walk away with cash in hand. A great way to get money today and all that you lose is your old back up cell phone.

2) Get A Fast Loan Online

If you want to be completely guaranteed that you have money on the way, it is hard to beat a loan. Whether you need a $500 loan or a $5000 loan, we may be able to help you get an offer.

Here Is How It Works

Head up to the top of the page and click on the “Get Your Loan Quote” link. The link will take you to the short and secure loan quote form. Enter in how much you need and some basic information about yourself and where you want the money sent. Then, agree to the terms and submit your form.

If approved, one of the lenders in our lending group will make you an offer. We are not lenders but instead get you access to this large online group. If you have no credit or bad credit, more lenders improves your odds of getting a yes from one of them.

Should you decide to accept your offer, your lender will get you money ASAP. This can be as soon as the next business day. No, this will not get money in your hand today, but in an emergency, it is nice to know that money is on the way.

3. Donate Your Life Saving Plasma

Plasma is something that is in high demand. It is used to make a number of therapeutic and life saving treatments and companies are willing to pay you for it.

Here Is How It Works

First, you need to find a plasma donation center that pays cash. Free blood clinics like the Red Cross, will not pay you although they will gladly accept your donation. You need money today, so don’t feel guilty about visiting a “for profit” donation center. Simply do a search for “plasma donation” and your city to find a suitable location.

Once you have a location, all that you need to do is show up and donate. Make sure that you arrive well hydrated from non caffeinated drinks and that you have about 90 minutes to spare.

The donation process is simple. They hook you up to a machine that pulls your blood, removes the plasma and returns your red blood cells. Because your red blood cells come back to you, there is no light headed feeling after donation. This also allows you to donate up to twice a week, making up to $50 per donation. That makes this a way to get $400 a month in extra cash.

4. Become A Seller On Facebook Marketplace

Facebook has quickly become one of the best places to sell used goods. You can sell just about anything there and the audience is much less likely looking to scam you. Like any online market, there are scammers however, so use caution.

Here Is How It Works

Take a walk around your home and look for anything of value that you no longer need. Anything that you have not used for at least 6 months should be fair game. Then, take these items and see what people are selling them for on Facebook and price your items accordingly.

If you need money right this second, then you need a fast sale. This means that you will likely need to price your items for less than what other people are selling them for. If you do this and your item is in demand, you will almost certainly get a sale the same day.

Once you have your item sold, choose a safe location to meet them. Ideally, this should not be at your home, but instead at a well lit public location. Also, this should be obvious, but it should be said, only accept cash.

5. Slim Down Your Wardrobe

Got a thing for designer clothing? If so, you probably have some items either no longer fit or that you just don’t care for anymore. Don’t let the moths get them, sell them for cash today.

Here Is how It Works

Simply find a used clothing retailer such as “Plato’s Closet” and bring in your clothing. Do a search for “used designer clothes” and your city to locate a store near you. Keep in mind that they will likely only accept high end clothing labels, so Gucci is a yes and Hanes is a no. Most stores will also accept handbags, so if you have any, bring them along.

Once at the store, resist the temptation to browse. They will likely offer you store credit or cash, so you would hate to spend all of the money that you need today on an outfit to wear tomorrow.

6. Borrow From A Friend The Safe Way

We all know that borrowing from friends is risky, but there is a safe way. Borrow with confidence with a contract.

Here Is How It Works

The biggest problem with a loan between friends is that people often do not take it seriously enough. To solve this problem, you need a loan contract. Sounds silly to be this formal with a friend, but if you want to make sure they stay a friend, you should do so.

A simple loan contract is only a quick internet search away. Make sure that in it you spell out how much is borrowed, how much is to be paid back and when it should be paid back. Then, you should both sign the contract and keep a copy. Take a picture of it when you are done so that you always have it on your cell phone.

In addition, when you pay off the loan or make a payment, do so with a check or electronic payment, never cash. You need to be able to prove that money was repaid.
