A Love & Pawn Story
We are only a few days away from Valentines’ Day and some of us might feel challenged when thinking about what gift to purchase for their loved ones. Not because we don’t know what to buy, but rather what to buy when you’re unlucky broke and would not want to disappoint your partner!
Well, well, well… Your savior in such a tight situation could surely be your local pawnshop. Whether you need some quick cash to buy something more specific or a piece of jewellery, this article will provide you a few tips to save the day.
The variety of choices are often mind-blowing if you intend to buy an item. If you've never purchased something from a pawn shop previously, don't stress; it’s a piece of cake. From time to time, people pawn items like bracelets, earrings, watches just to name a few and end up not retrieving them because they come up short in cash when it’s for repayment. Hence, their item end up in shelves with a price tag that is quite often, surprisingly lower than the original cost. Not to mention when some of these pieces are almost new in condition. This price-shredding technique highly works to your advantage. It comes to no surprise that one can walk out from a pawnshop with designers bags that cost them a quarter of what they would have paid at the mall.
On the other hand, if your wallet is completely empty because pay day falls a day or two after Valentine’s, here is what you can do. Look around the house for anything that could hold value against which a fair amount of money could be traded such as:
- Electronics including smartphones, tablets, audio systems.
- Any gold or silver jewellery
- Vintage arts, watches or anything considered collectibles
In this scenario, depending on how much the assessor will offer you, you could use the cash to buy something directly from the pawnshop itself or my personal suggestion for men, invest the entire cash you get on a huge flower bouquet! Trust me that will work better than giving her an item that might not satisfy her taste!
Women have far better options considering the fact that most men aren't very picky and receiving a gift coming from a pawnshop could be looked at as a very cute move. If your boyfriend, fiancé or husband doesn’t have a watch on his wrist, this is a good time to use your limited funds and surprise him with a timepiece best suiting his style.
No matter how bad your credit score is, this method is no rocket science and available to any adult. The great plus Fast Credit UK has over any other pawnbroker is our daily interest rate. You only pay interest on your loan for the amount of days needed, even if it’s one. This could be interesting if you’re planning to retrieve your item in a matter of days after Valentine’s rather than waiting a full month.
