A payday loan is money given by a loan store for those who need money until their next paycheck. The balance is generally due on your next payday and includes a high-interest rate. You can get an online loan or visit an actual storefront. Because the due date for the payday loan is so soon after you get the money you need, it is easy to fall into a debt spiral.

In fact, 80% of all payday loans are taken out two weeks after the last one was paid in full.  Use our tips below to get out from under your payday loan.
