About Us


Why do people use short-term installment loans? Typically, it’s due to the fact that they cannot qualify for a bank loan because the amount they need is too small, or they don’t have good enough credit, or they simply don’t have the time required to wait for a bank’s approval process. And, many people need to borrow money just for a short time in order to cover unexpected expenses that always seem to happen at the worst possible time. After all, life happens between paydays.

Who We Are

FastBucks® is one of the best-known providers of short-term loans and corresponding financial services. Friendly, customer service is at the core of what we do. We know we are here to serve our customers, and without them we wouldn’t be in business.

Our customers are hard working people who find themselves in need of a critical short-term loan. FastBucks® offers a variety of convenient, easily-accessible financial services such as short-term installment loans, title loans, and cash for gold in some locations. We serve customers in five states in our many neighborhood store locations, on our website, and through our professional call center. We are proud of our secure operating systems, our friendly call center, and our track record of hiring and retaining the best employees. Our employees have the opportunity to own a portion of the store they work in, so our customers always get the best service in the industry from someone who already owns, or is aspiring to own, a piece of our company.

How We Began

In 1997, we opened our first store in Dallas, TX. FastBucks® was founded by a young entrepreneur who saw a need in his neighborhood for access to quick cash that would be repaid quickly. Because of his determination to help his neighbors and his strong entrepreneurial spirit (which is very much alive throughout the company today), FastBucks® is truly an American success story.

Who’s that Roadrunner?

Bucky is the official mascot of FastBucks®. Bucky travels to our stores and to community events to say hello and have fun with our neighbors.

We chose a roadrunner as our mascot because he’s fast and friendly, just like FastBucks®!  If you would like Bucky to come to your event, call to arrange a visit!”
