Cash advances are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to get out of financial emergency situations. As the cash is generally deposited into your account the very next day, the amount of cash usually isn't that high, up to several hundred dollars. However, that amount can be used to pay for long overdue bills or even spend the weekend away with your friends.

Obviously, most financial advisors wouldn't tell you to get a fast cash advance if you're going to take a long weekend vacation. However, there are times when a good friend might be celebrating a birthday, getting married or some other momentous occasion. When these times hit, you don't want to be the only person who can't go, especially if you are one of his or her closest friends.

It might be that you could certainly afford to go if only payday were a little bit closer. (Don't unforeseen expenses always come up right before payday?) This is why many of these fast cash advances are also referred to as payday advance loans. The main thing to do is make sure you don't take out more money than you can pay back in a payday or two. You will be paying fees for any money you borrow. If you ask for an extension, you will have to pay a fee on that as well.

Being Smart with Your Cash Advance

Most people apply for cash advances when there is an immediate need. However, you might want to take a little bit of time to compare companies. If you choose to apply online, you can compare simply by pointing and clicking. Moneylenders are required by law to inform you of any fees or interest rates upfront. If you think you will need extra time to pay the loan back, see what kind of fees you are looking at.
