If you would prefer to pay from a different account, you may pay online.
You can use a different checking account, debit card, or you may call our Customer Service Team at 800.745.1011. Any change in payment method must be made prior to 1 pm Pacific time on the date the loan is due in order for the change to be processed for the current payment.

There is no charge to enter into the CFSA Extended Payment Plan. You may choose this option prior to the deposit of your current loan. After repaying your payment plan, we may re-evaluate your credit limit to reset it at an amount you can reasonably repay. Additional details about this option are available at any Moneytree branch.

Take a very strong magnet and see if the jewelry sticks to the magnet. If it does, there are other metals in your jewelry and Moneytree will not be able to purchase that item from you.

Is all gold worth the same amount?
The actual price you'll receive for your scrap gold items depends on the weight and the karat value of the gold. For example, an ounce of 18 karat gold is worth more than an ounce of 10 karat gold. The higher the karat number, the higher percentage of pure gold in the item. The karat content is often stamped on the item.
24 karat is 24/24 or 100% gold.
18 karat is 18/24 or 75% gold
12 karat is 12/24 or 50% gold
