At this time of the year we could all do with some extra cash and one way that you probably hadn't considered was using a pawnbrokers like H&T Pawnbrokers to raise some extra money for Christmas.
The way they work is that you use something you own such as jewellery or something similar as an asset and they will give you a loan based on the value of your asset. When you pay the loan back you can have your asset back however if you don't pay it back then the pawnbroker can sell your asset to recover the cash you owe.
Another way to raise cash with them is to sell your unwanted gold, we all know that gold has a pretty high value at the moment and most of us have got some laying around in old jewellery boxes never getting worn so why not sell it and make some much needed cash.
You can also get personal loans but as with any type of loan you need to make sure that you can keep up with the repayments and also bear in mind that the interest on things like this tend to be very high.
