All cash advance loans (also called payday loans) are fee-based loans. That means you pay about $15-30 per $100 borrowed in most states. Every state has established its own limitations on what a lender can charge you in fees. Annual Percentage Rates (APRs) do not apply as these loans are short-term loans that never exceed a few months.
There is another option called auto title loans. However, you have to put up your car as collateral, and if you miss a payment, the lender can often seize your car. Most people rely on their car to get to their workplace, so losing it is not a good prospect. Also, auto title loans are not legal in most states, so it is not an alternative for most people.
