Last Minute Back-to-School Shopping at a Pawn Shop
Kids are going back to school, much to many parents’ relief. However, most of us don’t complete the shopping list the first time around. While many will look to big box stores for their money-saving deals, there are a lot of offerings that can be found at a pawn shop for a fraction of the cost. In fact, pawn shops often carry items you may have intended to replace down the line but thought you would have to save up for.
The following three categories are the most popular for parents in September as they prepare their kids for a successful academic year.
Kids go through phases when it comes to their interests and musical instruments are no different. Rather than buying a brand-new guitar or violin, buying one at a pawn shop can give the same quality at a much lower price. When a pawn shop accepts a musical instrument, it is because it is in good enough condition to be resold, leading to nearly the same quality as an unused instrument. This is also better than a rental, as it can be sold back rather than ending payments, leading to a better investment.
Pre-Owned Laptops and Electronics
Whether you need a mini-fridge for your child’s first year at college or a new laptop to help any aged child study, a pawn shop can be your best option. Pawn shops offer the same merchandise as a big box store but at a fraction of the cost. Prior to purchasing these items, our team inspects the electronics to ensure they are as close to brand new as possible. In some cases, a pawn shop can offer product protection plans. Even better, pawn shops can purchase these items from you if you have them in good shape, which can help fund the rest of your back to school shopping.
In the same vein, school supplies can be sold or bought at a pawn shop. If you have something that was never used, or was lightly used, such as a calculator or similar item, pawn shops will buy them off you for a reasonable price. If you’re on the other end of the spectrum, you can save a ton by buying someone else’s gently used items.
