Apply for a cash loan online

The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis tracks personal savings rates for American households. According to Trading Economics, numbers dating back to the 1950s, personal savings rates reached an all-time high of approximately 17 percent. Today, that number hovers around 5 percent. It's not that Americans today don't want to save for a rainy day, but rather that for many individuals and families, the rainy days never seem to go away. Rising costs keep many people living check to check, which can make it difficult to deal with emergencies. While savings are great, where do you turn if you need a quick financial boost and don't have any cash stowed away? At best, a cash advance may be the answer for you.

An online cash loan is a short-term loan. Usually, the amount of money involved is relatively small. Often, the amount can be repaid in only one or two payments, which is why such loans are sometimes referred to as payday loans. Cash loans can be taken out for a few weeks and paid back once you receive a paycheck from your employer.

Online cash loans are slightly different from their traditional brethren, though. Online loans are handled via internet applications and approvals, which often means you know if you are approved right away and could receive your funds quickly via a bank transfer.

Benefits of cash loans from us

Cash loans through LendUp come with a variety of benefits. First, in eligible states, our LendUp Ladder program means that each time you take a loan out and repay it on time, you earn points which may ultimately unlock applications to larger loans. We know that life happens, and events that are unplanned and out of your control are often what creates a negative credit history or financial scenario. At LendUp, we don't hold "life" against anyone, which is why we work with you on options that might be able to help you improve your access to credit. Specifically, in those eligible states, the Ladder may let you earn your way up to applications for larger loans.

A second benefit of working with LendUp is that we strive to make all the details of our loans clear and understandable. You won't ever pay hidden fees when you borrow from us. We're licensed in every state where we operate, and we won't sell or provide your information to third parties unless you specifically authorize us to do so.

A third benefit of LendUp's cash loans is that they could help you create a better credit history. As you get to the top levels of the LendUp Ladder in those eligible states, we can report your payments to the credit bureaus. On-time payments can have a positive impact on your FICO score.

Finally, LendUp’s easy cash advance application is convenient. You can apply for loans via your computer or your smartphone, and we provide fast decisions.

How do you apply for cash loans?

To access LendUp Loans, you need to live in one of the states where we’re licensed to provide loans. Access LendUp via a computer or mobile phone and begin the cash loan application process, which we've designed to take as little as five minutes. You'll have to provide some basic contact information, and we can't fund an approved loan without bank account information from you. We'll also ask for your employment details or the source of any recurring income. Once you enter all required information and submit your application, you can expect an instant decision any time, day or night.

If you’re approved, funding is usually quick, depending on your bank account. Where available, we can deposit approved loans within one business day. In some cases, if you have a compatible bank account and associated debit card, you can receive your funds in as few as 15 minutes (an additional fee will apply). LendUp can't guarantee receipt of your funds within a certain timeframe, though, because although we initiate a transfer of money to you, your bank controls when you’ll have access to it.

Is good credit important for cash loans?

Some providers require that your FICO, or credit score, be above a minimum number before they will provide a cash advance.

Good credit isn't required for a LendUp Loan, and our cash advances have no credit check hard pull. While we do use an internal approval process and can't approve every applicant, we don't base our cash loan approvals solely on traditional credit scores. We routinely work with individuals who have faced credit challenges recently or in the past, and we may be able to provide a credit product that helps you get back on track.

LendUp's cash loans can help you meet emergency needs, catch up on finances or fund necessary expenses when payday is too far away.
