I Need Cash Now

Money problems can happen to anyone. Sometimes, all it takes is one surprise bill or one late paycheck. Just one unexpected expense has the potential to wipe out your savings.

And even if you have enough to cover that one emergency expense, you might not have had enough time to rebuild your savings before another unexpected bill comes along.

What to do if you need cash now

When unexpected expenses arise, you don’t often have much time to plan. By the time you discover you need a little extra cash to get by, you might be dealing with a small window of time to get the money and get it in your account.

If you don’t have savings or don’t have enough savings to cover that unexpected bill, and borrowing from a friend or family member isn’t an option, you’re going to have to reduce or remove some of your regular expenses, right? Not necessarily.

When you need cash fast, you do have options. Even if you have bad credit, there are lenders who will give you a chance. LendUp (where available) specializes in this type of loan. If you’re approved you can get your money fast—even if you have bad credit.

How to get a loan if you have bad credit

When you apply for a personal loan from LendUp, we don’t do a hard credit check with the traditional credit reporting agencies. If you have bad credit, that won’t automatically disqualify you for a loan.

We know that sometimes your credit score is not the best indicator of whether or not you will repay a loan. Sometimes things happen that are beyond your control and credit reports don’t show the complete picture.

Why LendUp?

We can help you get the cash you need fast, right now and down the road. We form a lending relationship with each customer, so you can get cash whenever you need it without falling into payday loan debt traps.

As you successfully take out and repay loans with us on time, you’ll slowly gain access to lower interest rates and higher borrowing limits in the states where LendUp is available. Over time, we can even help you improve your financial health through our financial education resources.
