Industry Tips

Those "cash until payday" services sound helpful, but they could push you farther into debt.

With payday loans, a consumer gives a credit or debit card or writes a check payable to the lender for the amount he or she wishes to borrow plus a fee. The lender gives the borrower that amount minus the fee. The lender then waits until the borrower's next payday, when the borrower can do one of three things: allow the lender to cash the check or charge the account, redeem it by paying cash to recover the loan plus a fee, or roll it over by paying the fee to extend the loans for two or more weeks. Fees charged for payday loans are usually a percentage of the face value or a fee charged per amount borrowed (lenders may charge anywhere from $15 - $50 dollars for every $100 borrowed). By rolling the loan over you may be obligated to pay a finance charge (a dollar amount) and the annual percentage rate or APR (the cost of credit on a yearly basis). Typically, the APR is extremely high (in Delaware we have seen APRs as high as 300%) and can be increased with a missed, late or partial payment.

If you decide you must use a payday loan, borrow only as much as you can afford to pay with your next paycheck and still have enough funds to make it to the next payday.

Under the Truth in Lending Act, the cost of the payday loans - like other types of credit - must be disclosed. Among other information, a consumer must receive, in writing, the finance charge and the annual percentage rate or APR.

The BBB, along with the FTC, advises consumers to consider other possibilities before deciding on a payday loan:

If you need credit, shop carefully. Consider a small loan from your credit union or a small loan company, an advance on pay from your employer, or a loan from family or friends.

Ask your creditors for more time to pay your bills. Find out what they will charge for that service - as a late charge, an additional finance charge, or a higher interest rate.

Make a realistic budget, and figure your monthly and daily expenditures. Build some savings - even small deposits can help - to avoid borrowing for emergencies, unexpected expenses or other items.

If you need help working out a debt repayment plan with creditors or developing a budget, contact your local consumer credit counseling service. There are non-profit groups that offer credit guidance to consumers for little or no cost.
