Rates & APR


APR & Loan Duration

The APR on a personal loan from our network of lenders and lending partners varies, with many providers offering rates from 5.99% to 35.99% and loan durations between 90 days and 72 months. The actual loan rate depends on the loan amount and term requested, as well as your credit score, usage, and history. If you are offered a loan, you will have the opportunity to review the final offer made by the lender or lending partner and accept their loan agreement. The APR will be set by your lender and you will be notified of the final number before accepting the loan terms. Annual percentage rates can vary based on both: 1) the information that you supply in your initial loan request, and 2) the information that your lender supplies to you.

Representative Examples

If you borrowed $1,500 over a 18 month period and the loan had a 3% origination fee ($45), your monthly repayments would be $100.05, with a total payback amount of $1,800.93 which including the 3% fee paid from the loan amount, would have a total cost of $255.93. Representative 19.99% APR.

If you borrowed $5,000 over a 38 month period and the loan had an 6% origination fee ($300), your monthly repayments would be $182.74, with a total payback amount of $6,944.12 which including the 6% fee paid from the loan amount, would have a total cost of $1,644.12. Representative 17.53% APR.

Annual Percentage Rate (APR)

The Annual Percentage Rate is the rate at which your loan accrues interest. It is based upon the amount of your loan, cost of the loan, term of the loan, repayment amounts and timing of payments and payoff. By law, the lending partner and partner must show you the APR before you enter into the loan.

States have laws limiting the APR that the lending partner or partner can charge you. Rates will vary based on your credit, loan size and whether collateral is provided, with the lowest rates available to customers with good credit on larger, secured loans. Minimum and maximum loan amounts and APR may vary according to state law and lending partner or partners. We recommend you read the lending partner’s and partner’s personal terms and conditions in full before proceeding for a personal loan.
