The Ins And Outs Of Pawn Shops

The United States is home to roughly 10,000 pawn shops, says the National Pawnbrokers Association (NPA). We've all heard of pawn shops, but few of us have ever sold or pawned items to them. Let's dig into the basics of pawn stores and see how they operate.

What Does Pawn Mean?

Pawn loans have three primary characteristics: they will never appear on credit checks or financial history reports, they are typically not large, and pawnbrokers are not legally allowed to ask for the money they loaned back. Keep in mind that pawn shops also buy products from customers, meaning that customers are not able to sell those products back to pawnbrokers to get their money back as in pawn loans.

How Do Pawn Stores Make Money?

These businesses, typically owned by independent entrepreneurs, make money through a variety of methods. Pawn shops primarily engage in the following activities: making pawn loans to people and charging interest, reselling new and used items that were purchased from customers, cashing checks, sending money orders, and selling cellphone services, among others.

What's the Typical Interest on Pawn Loans?

APR stands for annual percentage rate, or the total amount of interest accumulated on a loan in a year's time. The APR of pawn loans hovers anywhere around 75 to 150 percent per year. Most pawn shops charge interest by the month at around 10 percent interest. Keep in mind that defaulting on pawn loans automatically results in the transfer of ownership of your collateral to the pawn shop.

How Much Money Do Pawnbrokers Lend?

The typical range of return on items pawned to these stores is between 25 and 60 percent of what the item's fair market value is. Pawnbrokers refuse to purchase certain types of items, though this typically depends on owners' personal preferences. Pawn shops aren't the most popular way of getting money in a pinch, though they've served countless millions of Americans over the years. They offer several unique benefits to companies in financial services and specialize in jewelry pawn shop forest park.

5 Sustainable Swaps To Make In 2019

** This post contains affiliate links which means I will be paid if you make a purchase through my links! I am very grateful for any help however, I completely understand if you would rather visit the website directly to make your purchase! **



On my journey to creating a healthier home, I’ve learned that living sustainably is all about making small changes.
Seemingly insignificant actions — like bringing your own bags to the store — add up quickly.  
One of the easiest swaps I’ve made is using Grove Collaborative. Grove makes it almost too easy to live a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.
Grove ships your favorite green household products (carbon offset) to your doorstep, on your schedule. There’s no fee to join — you only pay for the products you buy (and the prices are always lower than my local grocery store).
There’s never been a better time to try Grove Collaborative. Right now, when you place your first order of $20 from Grove using my link, you’ll receive:
Grove Concentrates
Grove Spray Bottle
Grove Matte Caddy
Grove Walnut Scrubber Sponges

(Existing customers will receive Grove Walnut Scrubber Sponges!)

Plus, if new customers spend $39 you will receive all of the above AND a Grove Stoneware Tray!
When you shop Grove, you’ll find lots of better-for-you versions of the products you use every day. Here are five sustainable swaps I’m making in the New Year:
  1. Refillable hand soap: Hand soap refills are an easy way to save money and reduce plastic waste. Instead of a single-use dispenser that you toss after a few weeks, you can refill this glass dispenser year after year. Grove’s hand soap pouches use 60% less plastic than a bottle of the same size and contain approximately 3 refills.
  2. Refillable dish soap: I’ve always loathed the plastic bottle of dish soap sitting on the counter, but haven’t been able to find an alternative until now. Grove’s refillable dish soap dispenser looks great sitting next to the sink while helping me cut back on single-use plastic.
  3. Seedling paper: Instead of vowing never to use paper towels again, I’m making the switch to Grove’s new tree-free paper towels. They’re made from bamboo pulp, which can hold 3x its weight in water! Switching to Seedling paper towels, toilet paper, and tissues is an easy way to protect the environment without compromising on effectiveness.
  4. Beeswrap: Sometimes, you just need a piece of plastic wrap to cover a wedge of cheese or keep a loaf of bread fresh. When that happens, I’ll be reaching for Beeswrap. Beeswrap is a beeswax-coated cloth food wrap that you can rinse and reuse. It keeps food fresh and looks cute sitting on the counter.
  5. Cleaning concentrates: Not only are clunky bottles of cleaner a pain to carry in from the car, they create so much plastic trash. Grove Collaborative’s cleaning concentrates deliver the same cleaning power I’m used to, minus the waste! Plus, the glass bottle is so much prettier than the typical plastic ones.
Bonus tip: Once you’ve submitted your Grove order, you’ll be signed up for the free 60 day VIP trial. For 60 days, save even more with free shipping, free gifts, price matching, exclusive sales and personal service. And if you spend $39, you’ll also receive a beautiful stoneware tray for free!
