Borrow a Bigger Amount at Lower Interest than Credit Cards and Payday Loans. Although credit cards and payday loans provide an almost instant access for emergency funding, the maximum amount that you can borrow may not fit your needs. Furthermore, these type of loans charge exorbitant fees. Signature loans allow you access to moderate-higher loan amount with lower interest rate.
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.

Along with separate interest rates, credit card cash advances carry a separate balance from credit purchases, but the monthly payment can be applied to both balances. However, if you are only paying the minimum amount due, the card issuer is allowed by federal law to apply it to the balance with the lower interest rate. As that is invariably the rate for purchases, the cash advance balance can sit and accrue interest at that high rate for months.
