  • Veterans Day 2014

    This Veterans Day, We are thankful for your service and are showing our appreciation with a coupon for 20 percent off your entire purchase. Please share this offer with a veteran you know!



    Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day and commemorated the end of hostilities in WWI. The ceasefire that was a prelude to the Treaty of Versailles, which ended WWI, went into effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month — or 11 a.m. on November 11, 1918.

    A congressional resolution in 1926 declared that Armistice Day would be celebrated on the same day and the same time, and should “…be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations… with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples.”

    Armistice Day was made into a legal holiday in 1938; after WWII and Korea, the name was changed to Veterans Day to include all of those who served in order to keep both America and the world free from tyranny.

    Attempts at celebrating Veterans Day on Mondays like other national holidays were unsuccessful, as both the day and time remain symbolically important.

    According to the VA, Veterans Day is “A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.”

  • Meet the Market: Columbus, Ohio

    Columbus, Ohio and the surrounding area is a sports town. As home to the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Blue Jackets of the NHL, MLS’s Columbus Crew, and even a AAA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians (the Columbus Clippers), it’s no wonder.

    “I would say it’s a huge sports-crazy town,” said Midwest region Operations Director Brad Himmeger.

    The sports frenzy, though, centers around Ohio State University. The university’s main campus, which is in the center of Columbus, has nearly 60,000 students. Ohio Stadium, where they buckeyes play football, is one of the most recognizable sports venues in college sports. Seating nearly 105,000, the stadium is the fourth largest on-campus facility in the nation.

    Buckeye football also is near the top in the nation for attendance at home games.

    With national championship crowns in football, baseball and men’s basketball, the Buckeye faithful have a lot to be happy about.

    Columbus’ population is about 832,000, but the surrounding area, including towns such as Bellefontaine, London and Marion, boosts the greater Columbus metropolitan area’s population to 2.3 million people.

    But Columbus isn’t only about sports.

    Hidden gems like Bellefontaine boast the nation’s oldest concrete street: It was built in 1891 with what was then known as “that new-fangled” stone, according to RoadsiteAmerica.com.  Built in 1891, the contractor promised the city the road would last for five years — 123 years later, part of it is still there.

    And London, Ohio, which recently celebrated its 200th birthday, is home to the Strawberry Festival and the Ribs and Jazz festival every summer.

    But one of the best things about the Columbus area is the approximately 25 Cashland shops where residents and students alike can get loans and find great deals on all sorts of essentials for the dorm room or worksite, like gaming systems, power tools, electronics, jewelry and more.

    Of course, that’s true of all Cash America, Cashland, and SuperPawn stores. Find a location near you and discover a hidden gem or two of your own!

  • The Changing Colors of Fall: October's Birthstone(s)


    Opals
    Appropriately enough for a month that usually represents the changing colors of the autumn season, October has two birthstones: opal and tourmaline — both of which can come in several shades of colors.

    Opals are formed within the cavities and cracks in near-surface volcanic rocks and vary in colors from translucent pearly white to black, with intermingling colors such as green, yellow, red and blue.

    Australia is famous for its black opals that have veins of green, blue and red running through them. But opals are also mined in Mexico, the U.S., South America, Japan and Ireland.

    Ancient Romans said opals were a symbol of love, hope and good luck. Arabian tales said the stone made a wearer invisible or was a talisman of thieves and spies. More infamously, medieval Europeans thought the stone affected victims of Black Plague.

    The alternate October birthstone is tourmaline, which is named from the Singalese word “tourmali,” meaning “mixed stones.” Tourmaline exhibits a broad spectrum of colors, such as yellow, green, red, blue, pink, brown and black. The American Gem Society says one prized variety known as “watermelon” features green, white and pink bands.
    Watermelon Tourmaline
    Compared to other stones, tourmaline is a relatively recent discovery and doesn’t have a large number of folk tales that accompany other gems. But some cultures know tourmaline as the “peace stone,” which is thought to dispel fear and keep the wearer calm.

    Tourmaline is mined in Brazil, the U.S., Afghanistan, and across Africa. But as always, you don’t need to travel far to find quality tourmaline or opal stones: Visit your local Cash America store (or the National Jewelry Liquidation Center in Las Vegas to find opals and tourmaline stones of all shades, in both popular and traditional settings!

  • Engagement 101

    engagement ringsClass is in session! We’ve all seen the four Cs of the diamond standards equation — that’s color, clarity, cut, and carat weight, for those who haven’t yet shopped for engagement rings — but your focus should really be on the simple math: there are four Cs but no better deals than the huge assortment of rings that Cash America offers.

    And that’s before you consider our easy layaway program, Free 30-day Satisfaction Pledge, and knowledgeable professionals who can assist you in finding the perfect ring. 

    The days of spending three months’ salary have gone the way of the slide rule. The modern formula is finding a ring she’ll treasure without going into debt that requires a calculator.

    Engagement 101 at Cash AmericaFollow our rules of engagement (rings) to ensure truly blissful beginnings! What to know:

    For her, it’s all about the geometry; before you set foot in the ring section, find out what cut your girl prefers. Study her jewelry box or have her best friend swear an oath of secrecy.

    For the setting, get creative: check out her wardrobe — is she into vintage, tailored or modern? Perhaps she loves a little drama? Some diamonds are raised to show off the sparkle, while larger surface stones (better for those concerned with size) may warrant an inlaid setting. If your intended uses her hands at work, consider a flat mount to reduce the incidence of dings.

    Engagement ringsAs for the metal, platinum offers the benefit of being hypoallergenic and extremely durable; gold gives you more options for color and finish, not to mention a more flexible price tag.

    Check out your local Cash America store – or our National Jewelry Liquidation Center in Las Vegas — for more helpful hints and shopping help with our friendly associates.

  • Computerworld Tabs Enova as One of 2014's “Best in IT”

    Enova named to Computerworld's Best Places to Work in IT for 2014

    By: Kaitlin Arntz, Enova Public Affairs

    With their annual list of the “Best Places to Work in IT,” Computerworld has once again identified Enova as an enticing spot for IT professionals to land. The list of 100 companies takes into account a number of factors, including key benefits, training and career development. Enova ended up at number 21 on the comprehensive list and ranked eighth in the category of career development.

    “It’s great to be recognized for the second year in a row as one of the best places to work in IT,” said David Fisher, Enova’s CEO. “One of our core corporate values is Top Talent and Teamwork, and we’re proud to have Computerworld recognize our commitment to building a great culture and environment for our employees.”

    While Enova’s growth has been significant in recent years, the company has worked to maintain the atmosphere of a smaller business. For employees, this translates to extensive opportunities for upward mobility, including a number of services dedicated to personal and professional growth.

    “Hiring the best and the brightest IT pros, offering them competitive pay and providing top-notch benefits is just the beginning for the outstanding employers on this year’s Best Places to Work in IT list,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Both newcomers to the list and rock-steady stalwarts nurture their talent with challenging business-critical projects, extensive training opportunities and ongoing career development programs. They invest in their own futures by investing in their employees.”

    Enova is a company that prioritizes the success of its team members and recognizes the importance of giving employees all the tools they need to achieve it. With the recognition of industry analysts like Computerworld, alongside the measurable successes Enova has seen in its recent history, it looks as though the Enova approach is paying off.

  • Turn It Loose

    Cash America SuperPawn enters the Phoenix music scene with its first SuperPawn Music Center (SPMC)

    Diverse offerings at the SPMCThe SuperPawn at 4420 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix has long shared a shopping center storefront with a music store, but when the proprietor decided to sell his business, SuperPawn management had an inspired idea: Why not expand its retail offering to specialize in the music scene?

    Store manager Scott Lende then hired a team of pawnbrokers with musical backgrounds and knowledge, all of whom play instruments. For musicians looking to not only get a good deal but also get expert service, SPMC employees can talk the talk and shop the shop.

    SPMC speakers, amps, and musical equipmunk High-end instruments and equipment already appear to be a growing specialty of the SPMC, but shoppers can find a wide variety of instruments and equipment suitable for anyone, from beginners to experts.

    Offerings range from guitars to violas, bagpipes to mixing boards, and drumsticks to unique memorabilia.

    With workshops and talent showcases on the agenda for the future, the SPMC hopes to become as closely involved with the community as SuperPawn already is.

    Guitar wall at the SPMCAs part of this commitment, the SPMC has its own Facebook and managed Yelp pages. New and featured items will be posted throughout the week.

    If you’re in Phoenix, check out our featured items on Facebook, get a great deal at 4420 N. Central Ave., and then tell your friends and family about it by giving us a five-star review on Yelp!

    And stay tuned: The SPMC in Phoenix is only the first of more Cash America music centers to come. In the future we’ll be opening SPMC Tucson and the Cash America Music Store in Austin.
