Top Three Advantages of Pawn Loans
Pawn loans have advantages over types of personal loans.
- The amount of your loan determines your interest rate. Pawn interest rates are not arbitrary or based on your credit score, income, job, or ability to repay.
- The interest rate on pawn loans is cheaper than car title loans and payday loans.
- Pawn loans are safer. If you are not able to repay your loan, there are no adverse effects on your credit score or your ability to pawn with us in the future.
Unlike a pawn loan, if you default on a car title loan or payday loan, you risk losing ownership of your transportation, your wages garnished, and your credit score will take a severe beating. And, in case you haven’t suffered enough, add persistent calls from collection agencies. A pawn loan is the safer choice, and an easy way to get cash today.
Pawnshop Regulation and interest rate chart
Pawnshops are highly regulated and a safe place to conduct business. Just like banks, pawn shops are licensed lenders and governed by Federal, State, and local laws, including:
- Truth in Lending Act – clear statement of credit terms, interest rates, and fees.
- Federal Trade Commission – protect your personal information kept in our system.
- Federal Firearm License – detailed record-keeping and background check requirements
- Internal Revenue Service – reporting cash transactions over $9,000.
- Reporting purchases – Dallas pawn shops report all purchases to Leads Online, a national theft reporting database used by the Dallas Police Department.
In Texas, the Office of the Consumer Credit Commissioner oversees pawnshops and sets our pawn loan interest rates. Pawn loans are designed as a short-term financial solution. For this reason, finance charges are calculated daily vs. monthly or annually. Also, pawn interest rates factor in the risk of non-payment and additional costs required to sell a pledged item in a store or online.
Pawn Loan Terms
Pawn loan terms are 30-days, with a 30-day grace period, which means you have 60-calendar days to repay your loan. Also, a pawn loan can be paid off early without penalty. You will only pay interest on the number of days you have the loan.
At the end of your grace period, if you are not able to repay your loan in full, you can pay the interest due and renew your loan. If you chose not to repay your loan, the pawnshop sells your pledged collateral to recoup their money. Aside from losing your collateral, there are no collections actions, reports to credit agencies, or other penalties. The majority of our customers repay their loans and pick-up their collateral. According to the National Pawnbrokers Association, approximately 80% of all customers reclaim their valuables. *
