Interest. The interest rate of pawn loans varies by State. This is the rate charged to the borrower (you, in this case) for borrowing funds. It is a percentage of the principal.

In California, interest rate fees are generally 3% per month.

The term of the loan. Here´s the important part. Most pawn shops in San Diego offer 6-month loan terms. Pawn shops only allow for an item’s retrieval after the end of the term, as stated in your contract.

However, at CashCo Pawn Shops in San Diego, you can choose a 4, 5 or 6-month pawn loan.

  • Storage and writing fees may apply. Some loans carry $0 fees. These fees are established by State Law.
