  • Red Cross Giving Starts Close to Home

    Fort Worth-based Cash America partners with the American Red Cross to bring relief to those affected by disasters across the country. When recent heavy rains caused severe flooding in large parts of Texas, thousands across the state were affected — including many areas where Cash America shops are located.

    One of the people affected by the floods is Mike Applegate, manager of our Cash America store in Elgin, to the east of Austin. He and his wife live near the quiet town of Martindale, in the scenic Texas Hill Country. On Sunday, May 24, the Blanco River overflowed its banks and flooded the area around Martindale.

    “It was devastating emotionally,” Mike said. “We had just purchased a home and were about 75 percent done with the remodel when the flood hit us. It undid all the hard work my wife and I did over the last year in about two hours. I lost my two prize possessions: motorcycles that were not covered under flood insurance.  My wife lost many old family photos and heirlooms.”


    While Martindale was given several hours of advance warning about the flood, the Applegates live outside city limits and had no way of being notified. They were able to escape but still suffered thousands of dollars in property damage. And that’s when the Red Cross sprang into action.


    “The Red Cross has been very helpful in the recovery process,” Mike said. “They were there constantly with a reassuring smile and offering to be there for us any way that they could. I was able to get a needed vaccination for an injury I sustained during the cleanup; I am truly thankful for all their efforts,” Mike said.

    Amid the tragedy unfolding around them, the coworkers in Mike’s shop exemplified two of Cash America’s core values: We are family, and We act with a servant’s heart.

    “My team really stepped up to the plate by covering for me while I began the recovery process. We have a small staff of four people, including myself. When one person is gone unexpectedly, it can be very stressful. They did an amazing job and I am lucky to have them,” Mike said.


    If you would like to help the recovery efforts in Martindale and other Texas areas affected by flooding, or to support the Red Cross in its nationwide disaster recovery efforts, go to http://bit.ly/CashAmRedCross.

  • Filling Up Empty Bowls



    February marked the 13th anniversary of the Tarrant Area Food Bank's Fort Worth fundraiser, Empty Bowls.

    Part of a national program developed by a ceramics teacher who wanted his students to get involved in feeding the hungry, Empty Bowls offers artists and craftsmen the opportunity to sell handcrafted bowls and local chefs a chance to donate lunch items for attendees.

    A number of Cash America coworkers volunteer at the Tarrant Area Food Bank's facility, and Cash America is proud to be an official sponsor of both the food bank and Empty Bowls.

  • Cowtown Warriors Ball

     
    Cash America, a proud supporter of our nation’s veterans, was happy to support the Cowtown Warriors Ball in Fort Worth on February 21.

    The Warriors Ball was founded by the Metroplex Marine Coordinating Council to offset Department of Defense budget cuts to the Marine Corps’ Wounded Warrior Regiment in Quantico, Va.

    Featuring dinner, a silent auction, a live band and remarks from Secretary of the Navy Gordan England, the night was a fun way to support a serious cause.

    Cash America’s table was shared by veteran coworkers along with six Marines as guests.

  • Braving the Elements

    Fort Worth was the host for the Armed Forces Bowl at TCU's Amon G. Carter Stadium on January 2, featuring a matchup between the University of Pittsburgh Panthers and University of Houston Cougars.

    As sponsors of the Armed Forces Bowl, Cash America coworkers had a courtesy tent front and center in the “Frog Alley” tailgate zone. Despite a cold day and steady rain, attendees filled clear stadium bags with koozies and bottle openers; red, white and blue sunglasses; and the most popular item: blue Cash America rain ponchos — 3,000 of them, to be exact.

    The ponchos were prevalent among the hardy crowd who stuck around for all four quarters. Despite being down 34-13 with under 4 minutes to play, UH rallied to win the game 35-34 to mark the bowl season's largest comeback and arguably most exciting finish.

    The Armed Forces Bowl recognizes and honors the five branches of the armed services, including showcases of military hardware and giveaways to wounded veterans.

    The military theme is visible all around the event; veterans (including a Pearl Harbor survivor) made their way all around the campus, and the championship trophy is even made of steel from the USS Fort Worth!

    Enjoy the photos of the event below courtesy of Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports, and a big thank you to the coworkers from our Texas offices and Grand Prairie store who helped keep the fans dry and happy (at least the ones cheering for Houston)!

  • Holiday Pawn Songs winners are here!

    After an intense bout of performances and judging, the 2014 Holiday Pawn Songs contest winners are here!

    The contest app had nearly 10,000 views (and our Facebook page gained more than 500 Likes). We're now flattered and happy to announce the following winners:

    Congratulations to Joyce from Phoenix, the "Fairy Pawnmother," for taking first place ($3,000)!

    Alex from Los Angeles won second place ($2,000), and Corey from Fort Worth won third ($1,000).

    Click here to view the 2015 Holiday Pawn Songs winners.
     


    Holiday Pawn Songs is about more than creating entertaining music; for Cash America, it's a way to give back to the customers who depend on us to be there for them when times are good or bad.

    The first-place winner, Joyce, was nearly overcome when she found out she had won.

    "SuperPawn has been so good to me for so many years," she said. "I'm about to cry just from talking about it. I want you to know that I meant everything I said in my song. For me, this wasn't just about entering a contest. Thank you so much."

    Second-place winner Alex will use his winnings to help fund his start-up TV channel, PrescriptionAM.

    Third-place winner Corey uses Cash America to pursue his dream of making music: "I have shopped with Cash America ever since I was four years old. All of my music equipment, including my Macbook, was purchased from them. They have looked out for me and my family for years. This song explains how Cash America has helped me create music to spread to the world: how I found the microphone of my dreams, along with more musical equipment, at Cash America," said Corey.

    "A big thank you to all of my friends at the Cash America store on Altamesa Boulevard for always looking out for me… They’re all family in my eyes," he said.

    Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to all participants for your hard work!

  • 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.
