We’re Here For You During the Government Shutdown


The Federal Government of the United States of America has been shut down for over a month. This shutdown is also the longest in recent U.S. History. The ability to pay for food, child-care, shelter, and bills among other things is a constant strain for government workers and we would like to take some of the burden off your shoulders while we can. While we cannot fathom the hardships that Federal employees are going through, we would like to help in the best way we can. This is why we are offering ZERO FEES and INTEREST-FREE LOANS to all federal employees who are no longer being paid during the shutdown for up to 30 days at Pawn America! 

This offer includes a 30-day interest and fee-free loan to any government worker who can provide their Government ID/badge along with other requirements listed in the legal disclaimer below. If you meet the qualifications and opt to take advantage of this offer, you will have 30 days to make your repayment. Only on day 31 would you start to incur fees and interest. If the Government shutdown has continued past this 30 day period of time we may elect to extend this offer. We would also update the public of this extension if that decision to extend the offer has been made. 

Please read more below for our legal disclaimer on this offer and feel free to stop into any Pawn America or Payday America store nearest you. You can also give any of our 17 stores a call as well to learn more about this offer!

Legal Disclaimer: This offer is good for Federal Employees who are no longer paid during the shutdown. This offer is only valid during the current Federal Government shutdown period, or until discontinued by Pawn America. You must be able to provide 2 most current pay stubs, your valid federal agency ID badge (no copies or facsimile allowed), and a driver’s license or state issued ID. The loan must be paid off within 30 days or standard fees and interest will be charged. If the Government shutdown continues beyond the first 30 day loan period, you may renew/extend the loan however standard fees and interest rate would apply to the next 30 day period. #GovernmentShutdown
