Credit cards can come in handy, but it’s important to have paper money with you at all times as well. Credit card debt is high in the United States. Some people use up their credit in just days, though it may take years to repay it. Being able to pay cash for purchases can help you stay within your financial budget. Cash can also help you save money on purchases. For instance, many gas stations offer two rates, one for cash-paying customers and one for those paying with a credit card. The cash price is often lower, as gas stations do not have to pay the requisite fee for credit card purchases. And if you often take cabs around NYC, you might find that paying with cash is an easier process than trying to use your credit card.

Big tickets items often depreciate in value the moment you take them home. As a result, you might be expending a great deal of money on a brand new television when you could be spending a fraction of the price on a used device. If you want to save money on your next television purchase, keep in mind these tips when shopping for a used TV.
A television that doesn’t function properly isn’t worth any amount of money. When you shop for a used television, request that the item be plugged in and turned on so you can see for yourself its performance quality. Watch for a few minutes and look for changes to picture and sound. If you notice any lines on the screen or periods of missing sound, ask to see a different model.
As essential as it is for a used television to operate as expected, it may also be important to you to have a device that has held up throughout past usage. You might expect a used television to have a few minor exterior blemishes, but if it has significant flaws, consider whether those imperfections will bother you in the future. If you like the picture and sound quality, but have concerns over artificial blemishes, ask the pawnbroker if he might be willing to negotiate the price.
Before you pay for a used television and take it home, make sure that you understand the return policy. If the pawn shop does not provide a return policy, be completely satisfied with your purchase before leaving with it. Should the pawn shop have a limited return policy, know its restrictions so that you can still bring back your television and receive your refund if you decide not to keep the device.
NY Pawnbrokers, Inc. offers a generous selection of quality used televisions at each of our three NYC locations. If you are looking for an exceptional television deal, look no further than NY Pawnbrokers, Inc. For store locations and hours, call (347) 523-8782 or visit our website.

Spring is on the way. Are you ready for spring-cleaning? Prepare for this yearly event by getting a good head start. Cleaning your home now will allow you to find items you do not use regularly. You can bring these items to NY Pawnbrokers, Inc. to pawn or sell them for extra cash. Here is a closer look at your pawning and selling options:
Pawn Your Items
If you are in need of a small loan but do not have the time or ability to deal with financial institutions, pawn shops may be the best option. Customers can bring in a wide variety of items to pawn for a defined period of time. This list includes jewelry, cars, electronics, watches, and other valuable goods. Pawnbrokers determine the value of the item and then present the customer with a cash loan proposition. If the customer accepts the loan, they leave their items at the pawn shop and take the cash. Once the time period is over, the customer can repay the loan as well as any interest that has acquired and take their item back home.
Sell Your Items
Customers who do not wish to pawn their items can choose to sell them instead. If you have any valuable items that you no longer want, you may be able to sell them to a pawn shop for fast cash. This option is slightly similar to the pawning process, in that customers bring in valuable items to determine their worth. Pawnbrokers figure out how much an item is worth and then make an offer. This offer will not be for the full value of the item, as pawnbrokers must be able to make a profit on items they plan to sell in their shops. If the customer accepts the offer, they get to leave with the cash and the pawnbroker will place the item for sale in the store.
