Short grace periods. Being charged $15 for a $100 payday loan doesn't sound bad, but you'll have less time (two weeks) to pay the money back than you would with a credit card (a month), and the real problems come if you decide you need to borrow more than $100 from a payday lender. For instance, if you borrow $400, you're probably paying back your lender $460 – in two weeks. And if your next paycheck is, say, $1,000, half of that paycheck will go back to the lender, and you'll have to try and make do until the next paycheck.
Pre-approval can tell you if you’re more likely to be approved for an offer, but it’s not a guarantee of approval or any specific terms. We may send your information to our participating lending partners periodically to check for available offers, but participating partners and available offers may change over time. You can opt out of our pre-approval checks at any time by adjusting your communications settings.
Just as with receiving the loan proceeds, the process is automatic and convenient. An electronic withdrawal will be made from the account you provided to us on your loan application on the loan's due date via an ACH transaction. If you would prefer to pay from a different account, you may pay online. You can use a different checking account or pay with a Visa or MasterCard debit card. Online payments can be made until 1 pm Pacific Time on the loan payment due date. Phone debit payments can be made until 2 pm Pacific Time on the loan payment due date.
