When you pawn something, how do they figure out what to pay you for it? Is there a set percentage? Let's say something's worth $250 new, you pawn is slightly used; are they automatically only going to give you, say, a fourth of that? A third?
I don't know, I've never pawned anything before and I want to be prepared if they're going to give me a shockingly low price.
In a similar vein: Have you ever really need cash and pawned something? What'd you pawn? What'd you get for it?
