First, let's get a better understanding of the term consolidation. Consolidation means you take all your current debt and package it into one big loan. The problem with this is most states have a maximum dollar amount that you can borrow (see chart above) and a maximum number of loans you can have at one time. State regulations make it unlikely that you would be able to consolidate high interest payday loans.
We recommend going to your local bank or credit union for a personal loan first, but only if you have good to average credit. A personal loan is only a good idea if you can get a decent APR. It becomes harder to get a loan from a traditional bank or credit union when you have average or bad credit. You may not qualify, or your APR may be too high to justify the loan.
NOTICE: The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age (provided the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract); because all or part of the applicant's income derives from any public assistance program; or because the applicant has in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. The Federal agency that administers compliance with this law concerning this creditor is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1700 G Street NW, Washington DC 20006 and the Federal Trade Commission, Equal Credit Opportunity, Washington DC 20580.
Every borrower has to pay the processing fees. Processing fees is a charge that passes on expenses to the borrowers for getting documentation, evaluations, work and record of loan repayment, or some other data essential for the lender's endorsing office This is non-refundable. The processing charge for Insta Loan is 1.50% to 2.00% of the loan amount in addition to service taxes.
You’ll have to repay the loan on your next payday, which can be up to 30 days from the date you get the loan. Most lenders require your bank account information so they can debit the repayment amount directly on the given due date. If you apply in-store, you can provide a post-dated check at the time of application. Some lenders allow you to make early repayments via credit cards, MoneyGram and Western Union.
In some states, you can also get a line of credit through Cash Central. This may be the best option if you need access to money to meet pressing financial need. A line of credit has rates similar to a payday loan or installment loan, but you only pay on the amount you use. It’s closer to a credit card but doesn’t have as many requirements for applying.
