Quickest Way To get money TOMORROW!
Anonymous Loan Holder

I was denied a loan from my bank because I had a few credit dings about a year ago (screw comcast). I had no other choice but to check out Avant after hearing about them from local media sources. The application took about 10 minutes and was pretty straight forward. I make decent money but my bank denied me, but I was in need for short term money to pay for housing repairs due to a leak. My apr was right around 35%, but if you plan accordingly and payoff the balance quick it's not a bad price to pay. Definitely worth checking out, plus, unlike payday loans they report to the 3 major credit bureaus. If you make timely payments, it'll help improve your credit score as well!

Deceptive loan terms
Anonymous Loan Holder

I applied for a $4,500 loan, which I was approved for. Durning the final review phone call, the customer service agent said I was actually not approved for the terms I chose (which I had already printed out and digitally signed) but for different terms with a longer repayment schedule. 

Of course they don't want you to pay your loan off sooner- that's less interest they'll collect. Granted I could pay it off as soon as I desired, but most consumers see the minimum payment and think that's all they have to worry about. After sleeping on it for a night, I called them and asked to close my loan. To their credit, customer service was helpful, and I wasn't charged any fees.

Seems like a good company, got my loan very fast! Only they had some technical problems, so I couldn't log in to see what my status was. When I called, they let me know I was approved and I had the money in my account within a few days!

Quick and Easy
Darsithis Loan Holder

Despite having a high salary (just shy of six figures), I've been plagued for a long time with damaged credit stemming from my near bankruptcy after leaving the military a decade ago. That has made it difficult to finance things like consolidation loans or credit in order to handle things I couldn't pay out-of-pocket, especially as I'm also supporting my partner through school.

On a whim, I opened up the email from CreditKarma telling me I was "pre-approved", threw in the amount I needed for a consolidation loan, and about an hour later (most of that just waiting for a reply via email), I was approved for a $10,000 loan. It was probably the easist application I've ever had. I had previously applied to another place who tried to pass me $4,000 @ 50% APR AND I had to go through more hoops just to get that kind of nonsense.

If I ever need another loan again, Avant is where I'd return to.

Getting the loan was fast and easy.
Anonymous Loan Holder

Avant said it would take a couple of days for the loan to go through, and they were correct. It was also easier applying for the loan then the majority of other loans that I have applied for.

**Annual Percentage Rates, terms of loan, and monthly payments presented are estimated and were created based on analysis of information provided by the consumer and available rate information from lenders. While efforts have been made to maintain accurate information, the loan information is presented without warranty and the estimated APR or other terms presented do not bind any lender. Lenders generally have a range of available APRs (for example, a lender’s range might be 2% to 12%) and only borrowers with excellent credit will qualify for the lowest rate available. Your actual APR will depend upon factors evaluated at the time of application, which may include credit score, loan amount, loan term, vehicle information, credit usage and history. All loans are subject to credit review and approval. Additionally, model year, loan-to-value, minimum loan balance mileage, income, debt, etc. restrictions may apply. When evaluating offers, please review the lender’s Terms and Conditions for additional details.
