Pawn Star Rick’s Book – License To Pawn

By now, everyone has either enjoyed or endured the Harrison family and their popular “reality” show, Pawn Stars! So it’s really no shocker that someone took the initiative to branch out the product endorsements and have a book written for them. Will you buy it? Me… I think I’m waiting for the Pawn Store malt liquor to hit the shelves! Or maybe the Chumlee microwave HungryMan entres!

Rick, his son Big Hoss, and Rick’s dad, The Old Man have very little going for them if they ever want to have a clothing line or a fragrance for men, but they DO have the knack for the pawn business. You might say that if anyone was born to pawn, it was the Harrison’s.

So, I think this book is worth a read, if only to really understand the inside track of the pawn industry. I’m curious what tips and tricks they have to offer. Plus… I can’t wait to read the parts Chumlee helped write!

Pawn Smart! How to be a Pawn Star Yourself!

Treasure in your closet? Treasure in your jewelry? Treasure on your shelf? Many of us are looking for ways to get money since our discretionary income has all but disappeared.  Many of my friends are going to pawn shops to get a loan or extra money.  One thing I know for sure, not all pawn shops are created equal.  It is a good idea to do your research and find a good and reputable pawn shop and ask many questions.  Nothing good comes of blindly handing over your precious items when you are down on your luck, then to have it disappear without getting your money or item back.

Boca Raton’s own Lee Josephson from Boca Raton Pawn was recently quoted in Fox Business, “A lot of times people will ask about the interest rate, but forget about the fees”. Sometimes the fees are so hidden and so massive, that the customer could get “robbed” of their money before they have even walked out the door.  With that just being one of the many questions to ask.

Here are a few more to remember:

*How long have you been in business?
*Are you insured?
*What happens if the shop is robbed and my item is stolen?
*Do you require paper work?
*Where will my stuff be kept?
* Will I get notifications of when my bill is due?

You Can Get Big Money From The Right Pawn Shop

Proper paper work and full knowledge of your state’s pawn shop  laws are a good way to make sure you are dealing with an honest shop.  For instance, In Florida, paw shops are required to make a copy of your driver’s license and take a thumb print to have on file for all of their customers.

Lastly, make sure you leave with all of your paperwork, including copies of the paperwork the shop manager made you sign for! Especially the receipt, because that could be one of the hidden fees they can (and some do)! charge for!

Remember, don’t just run out and pawn when desperate times are amongst, pawn SMART! Pawn iPhones, iPads or other Apple Products today!
