    I want to get some junk out of my house and make some quick money for gas. I was reading about it, and I thought they just gave you cash. But sounds like they give you some type of loan.

    You take a huge loss. It's for people who are really desperate.

    Youll get literally robbed SELLING shit to a pawn shop....where theyll turn around and sell it for more than its worth...sometimes more than retail price. Getting a loan on stuff is basically borrowing some cash for 4 months and paying it back with interest. In the past I treated my Les Paul Classic like a whore at one of them places. She still forgives me

    Want to pawn you shit? This family of Detroit's finest Hebrews would be glad to show you how it's done (or show you the door):

    Take the time to sell it on ebay or Craigslist- you'll prolly get twice the $$$ out of it.

    Use Craigs list. You can sell the stuff at full price the same day. A pawn shop will give you 1/4 of what its worth at best.

    I looked to buy a tv at a pawn shop. Prices were retarded. Went to Fred Meyer and bought a new one for the same price they were asking.

    Plus, there's no warranty (when you buy stuff at a pawn shop.)

    I was blown away when I heard about what people get 'paid' for their stuff at a pawn shop. Seems like you'd be better off trying to sell the thing yourself, or just keeping the thing.

    Having said that - selling things yourself can be risky; who knows if it will sell, and if it's a safe transaction. So, I suppose in that regard, I can understand pawning.

    If you just want quick cash it's the easiest way to go. When I sell shit on Craigslist I meet people in public places

    Most of the pawn shops I've been to were in bad parts of town and had heavy crack head traffic... not that safe..

    I bought my daughter a Pokemon DS game for $7.50 and found out it would have cost about $40 new. So I imagine the kid who pawned it took a huge hit. Although he probably stole it anyway.
