I suppose, this is a good place even though they charge so much. I have never appeared in the situation when I'm completely out of cash. But you never know. I am just glad that there are such places where you can go and solve everything in no time. ...

102 East Oltorf St, Austin, TX 78704

I liked the idea of getting cash without paperwork and bureaucracy. That’s the most vivid advantage of this service. Also it is easy to apply for, transparent without any difficult points and questions. And it is accessible any time, so you may apply at any time of the day and can expect money to come in several hour or maximum the next day depending on the application time. I’m satisfied! Thanks! ...

2030 E Oltorf St, Ste 105, Austin, TX 78741

I remembered that once I contacted a payday loan company and borrowed money from them. I was told that I had to pay back only the amount plus interest in total while repaying the amount to the company, but I was betrayed. They forced me to pay off so huge sum so that ever since then I never tried or trusted a cash advance company online or offline. Three weeks ago, my wife fell sick and doctor told me that her treatment would cost total of $8000 every month. I had some money in the bank, I thought to withdraw all side-by-side request them to provide me a loan of $5500. I was off to submitting the application, just then they told me that the interest rate would be 13.50% percent per installment. It was too huge to afford, I changed my mind and thought to turn to a payday loan company. This is when this company helped me. I borrowed from them twice and stayed pleases. I am being supported wonderfully and given loan on the right time. The interest of installment being very lower as compared to bank, I can manage to pay them back easily every month. I am strongly recommending them as they are the best company in the world. ...

Payday Loans in Austin

Particularly, payday loan lenders are okay in Austin, as well as in the rest of Texas. There are about 100 payday lender storefront offices in the city belonging to Ace Cash Express, Speedy Cash, Check’n Go, Quik Cash, and Advance America. They have their own websites, where borrowers can learn more about them and apply for a loan online. Payday lenders are not as strict on borrowers about credit histories and, for the most part, grant loans to users, who are not always okay with banks. They do require, however, that borrowers have a stable income and ask to submit documents proving that. 

Regulation

Payday lending is legal in Austin. It is regulated by the local legislation, which is not quite so tough on lenders. Particularly, it specifies only a minimum loan term (7 days) and does not specify a maximum one. It does not specify maximum charges or fees either (they depend on loan size); APRs tend to be quite high (662%). Rollovers are not allowed.

The law seems to be on the lenders’ side rather than the borrowers’. The latter is at a disadvantage and must always be sure they can pay off on time to avoid indebtedness. Criminal acts against borrowers are prosecuted.

Austin General Information

Austin is a major political, industrial and cultural center of Texas, the USA, and the state’s capital. Located in Travis County, a lush subtropical region, it attracts citizens from around the United States, neighboring countries, and from overseas. It is placed at a crossroads of several economic and cultural pathways and is home to quite a number of business and arts venues.

Austin History

The city originated in 1839 as Waterloo and was changed to Austin later that same year. It was named after Stephen F. Austin, the Texas Republic’s first secretary of state (known as The Father of Texas). The city continued to grow throughout the 19th century economically, politically, and culturally. It witnessed an economic boom in the 1870s when a railroad connected it to Houston and opened new horizons in trade, farming, and production. The Capitol Building was completed in 1888. The city’s business and cultural life continued to evolve throughout the 20th century.

Geography

Austin is located in Central Texas on the Colorado River and straddles the Balcones Fault, which gives it a variable elevation above sea level. The region presents the unique chemistry of a temperate, sub-tropical, and desert climate because of its specific terrain type. There are several artificial lakes in the city and a system of dams, which were built on the lower Colorado River to control floods, which often occur during thunderstorms.
