It may be hard to believe, but easy online payday loans did in fact save my life. I’m sure there are other stories out there similar to mine, but this one is definitely an eye-opener — as it shows what can happen when simply “waiting” for your next paycheck.
A few weeks ago, my car broke down and I was left without transportation. This was terrible because I, like most people, rely on my car to get to & from work. I didn’t have any money saved and it turned out that I needed some major work done on the car — it’s the price I pay for not paying enough attention to my automobile.
I had but 2 options to choose from: hitch a ride from a friend & co-worker who lived in the opposite direction of my job & home, OR borrow the money from somewhere and take care of the repairs immediately. Like most would do, I simply decided to wait until my next payday to take care of the repairs and have my friend cart me from & to work.
When he pulled up the first day, I was already feeling guilty, especially considering that he was going WAY out of his usual routine just to pick me up. That guilt only increased when he told me he was up an hour earlier than usual in order to pick me up. Suffice it to say, I was feeling pretty bad and decided that this wasn’t going to work out for an entire week.
That following afternoon, after I got off work, I started looking into payday cash advances and short term fast cash loans. It turned out that I could apply and have the money I needed within just a few hours. Like most, I was a bit skeptical and decided not to be “suckered” into this likely scam too quickly. Rather than just believe what I read, I did a bit of research and found out that these same day cash advances weren’t scams at all and they actually help a lot of people all over the world.
In all honesty, I was blown away at how virtually anyone could apply for one of these loans within minutes — all they needed to have was a valid social security number, a checking account, and a job.
After discovering this, I started my search for a payday lender and found one in less than 10 minutes. I applied online for a loan of $500 and was approved in under an hour! I was then told that the money would be deposited into my checking account within a few hours and I would be able to use it that same day, if not the next morning. With this news, I called up a local car repair service and had them tow the car down to their shop and repair it. A few hours later, the car was completely repaired and I was handed a bill for $446.84 — which was just shy of my $500 loan. I wrote them a posted-dated check for the following day, thanked them for the repairs, and then I DROVE my car home.
How did this loan save my life? Well, you’re about to find out…..
Just 2 days later, my friend — the one that was driving me to & from work — was killed in a horrendous, freak car accident. What happened was a huge semi-truck plowed into the PASSENGER side of his compact car and he was killed instantly. Had my vehicle not been repaired, I would have been in the car with him at the time of the accident. Hence, I would NOT be telling you this story right now.
