  • Where can I find my Checking Account Number?


    Find Your Bank Routing Number

    Look at the bottom edge of your check. Starting at the far left side of your check, the first group of 9 numbers is your Bank Routing Number. This number is always 9 digits long.

    Routing Number

    Find Your Check Number

    At the bottom edge of your check, locate the string of numbers that matches the Check Number in the upper right-hand corner of your check. This number is usually 4 digits long, and may include a zero as the first digit.


    Find Your Account Number

    The remaining group of numbers — those that are neither the Bank Routing Number nor the Check Number — is your Account Number. NOTE: If there are extra zeroes at the beginning or end of your account number, be sure to include them as part of your Account Number.

    Yes! Just update your contact preferences to subscribe or unsubscribe to email or postal mail notifications regarding your Cash Store account or news about Cash Store products, services, special offers and store openings. You can update your personal contact preferences at any time.

  • What are the implications of late payment or non-payment?

    If a customer has chosen to provide us with a check or an electronic debit authorization, and a scheduled payment is not received we will attempt to make a payment for the customer by debiting their bank account or depositing their check. If the check or debit is returned unpaid, we may assess a returned item fee of up to $30 if permitted by state law. The customer may also incur a fee from their bank. We will then attempt to contact the customer in order to make alternate payment arrangements. The customer may also incur additional finance charges.

    If a loan is secured by the title to a motor vehicle, the customer may be subject to their vehicle being repossessed. The customer may also be charged a late payment fee and incur additional finance charges.

  • What are your collection practices?
    While we prefer to work with our customers to make alternate payment arrangements, we collect past due accounts in a professional, fair and lawful manner in accordance with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and all other applicable state and federal laws and regulations.
  • What is your Policy on Responsible Lending?
    We endeavor to provide credit in accordance with applicable laws and only when we have formed a reasonable belief that the loan will be repaid. We believe that our customers are best suited to make their own financial decisions.
  • What is your Renewal Policy?
    If applicable law permits it, customers may apply to renew or extend their loan. We believe that our customers are best suited to make their own financial decisions. However, we include reminders in our customer agreements and in-store signage that our products are not intended for long-term use. Renewal fees and charges vary by location and loan type. Please call 1-888-950-2274 or visit your local store for details.
  • What is the potential impact to my credit score?
    Non-payment could affect your ability to obtain future loans with us or other lenders, depending on the credit reporting companies and scores used by each lender to grant credit.

  • What documents are accepted as proof of income?
    Acceptable proof of income includes a recent paycheck stub, Social Security benefits or Pension benefits (statement of benefits or a bank statement showing direct deposit), and child support (payment stub from a distributing agency or a bank statement showing direct deposit).
  • Why do we show APR?

    APR is Annual Percentage Rate. Most of our products have terms much shorter than a year so APR is not necessarily an accurate reflection of the interest rate you will pay. At Cash Store we are state licensed and regulated, and we follow regulations very closely, which include disclosing a calculated APR for our loans.

    Example of APR calculation: If you borrow $100 for 14 days from Cash Store, you pay a total of $22.50, or 22.5%, in fees. 22.5% is the per-period interest rate. To calculate the APR in this example, you would have to multiply 22.5 by 26 (26 is the number of 14-day periods in a year): 22.5 * 26 = ~585% APR.

    By paying back your loan on time, as the Cash Store encourages you to do, your loan fees will likely be cheaper than the costs of a bounced check, overdraft fees, a missed credit card payment or a neglected bill.

  • Is there a penalty for paying off my loan early?
    No. You can pay off your loan at any time. To see how an early payoff will affect your interest rate, please refer to your loan documents or contact us for assistance.
