5 Tips to Getting Quick Money

From time to time we all get into situations when we need some cash right now – to buy something that cannot wait until payday, to pay off a debt, to pay the rent, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that there are ways out of your predicament.

1.Getting a Title Loan
When you really need a more or less substantial sum of money right away, and it cannot wait, getting a car loan may be one of the few surefire ways of doing so. It doesn’t require a lot of time or effort on your side, you get your cash almost immediately, and more often than not the loan firm isn’t going to take your car so as not to impair your mobility and earning capacity. Just make sure you read all the fine print carefully and don’t grab the first opportunity. For example, if you are looking for all the title loans Tucson area has to offer, it isn’t always the best idea to take the one where your car will get you most money – interest rates and additional clauses play an important role as well.

2.Sell Stuff
Modern world offers you ample opportunities to get money you needed yesterday by selling some things you don’t really need. You may organize a traditional yard sale and get rid of some excessive junk in the process or resort to something a bit more high-tech. eBay offers a safe and well-organized transaction system, Craigslist is better oriented for local, face-to-face dealings.

3.Donate Plasma
Plasma is one of the constituents of blood, and is widely used in various medicines and treatments. Although a lot of people volunteer their blood and plasma as a gesture of goodwill, there is never enough of them, and there are at least several hundreds of for-profit plasma centers scattered across the country. Of course, this method applies only if you are reasonably healthy.

Depending on the center you are dealing with and your weight, you can make something from $15 to $40 per donation, with the entire process taking about an hour.

4.Sign up for Medical Tests
Most large universities constantly have a number of research medical projects, and need volunteers to test new drugs and treatments on. As the number of people willing to subject themselves to it is limited, they often offer monetary compensations, sometimes quite impressive. You should, however, keep in mind that you should be more or less healthy to begin with… and there is always a chance that the experiment will have adverse effects.


5.Rent out a Room
If you have any extra space at your home, you can rent it out via Airbnb. Don’t worry if it is just an extra room or even a shared room – people with all kinds of budgets are looking for living accommodations this way, and you can easily score a hit.

Being penniless is never pleasant – however, perhaps using one of these methods can lead you to making it a constant supplement for your usual sources of income.
