Easiest loan I've ever applied for
Symone74 Borrower

Initially I applied with One Main and I had had a loan from them before. They are nice enough, however, inconvenient. I asked for an $8000 loan and they only approved me for $5000. Then they wanted me to come in when it was convenient for them and fill out a bunch of paper work. Well while I set up an appointment with them, I came across an offer for Avant. I was reading how easy it was and thought this is too good to be true. I tried it anyway. Not only was it easy, but they approved me for the amount I was asking for with a decent monthly payment. AND the money was in my account the next business day!!! I love how they automatically take the payment out of my account and let you go in and choose the day that you want it to come out. Dude, it doesn't get any better than Avant!!!!
One Main called to confirm our appointment, I told her "Oh you can cancel that."
Thank you Avant!!!!

Worst Financial Mistake I ever made...
NIckfury55 Borrower

I applied and receive a loan for 13,000 dollars. My payment was 520.68 per month. My credit score is 677, which is not bad..After I had made several payments. I looked at the breakdown of the load and was SHOCKED to see that 329.87 went to interest and 190.81 went to the principal. So I made an extra payment of 1000 $ in addition to my normal payment... Don't you know those crooks applied their MAGIC MATH and applied 634.61 to INTEREST... INTEREST I TELL YOU!!!!!!! what a huge robbery. So finally after 15 months I was finally able to beg borrow and steal enough money to pay them off.. so lets to the math..payments just to the principal were 2862.15$ Original loan was 13,000$ subtract 10,137.85...but my payoff was quoted at 10, 937.48.. How in the hell can it increase based on their numbers...not mine...Bottom line is I borrowed 13,000$ Paid 6,810 and the load only shrunk to 10, 937.48...So if they screwed up or denied your load, count yourself as lucky..But if you are applying for a load, DON'T DO IT. THE COST IS PROHIBITIVE!!!!

Avant is Awesome
Anonymous Borrower

I had a very pleasant experience with Avant. They are quick, easy, and very professional. If you already have your documents ready, it'll make your experience much better! I definitely recommend this company.

The interest rate is ridiculously high.
Tom166 Borrower

Even after paying on my loan for over a year, and not missing one payment they were unwilling to adjust the rate. I was fortunatly able to get a much lower rate from my local credit union. Truth is on a $5000 loan and after 16 on time payments of $200 the balance owed was still over $4000. So they got over $2200, and I paid off less than $1000. Seems like a great way to gouge someone who is trying to get their credit back on track.

High interest
Anonymous Borrower

No refinance is difficult even with fair credit and on time payments. Everything needed to apply.

No. This is NOT a dependable company. They do not take care of on time paying customers.

Avant's loan processing is seamless.

My first experience with Avant was 2 years ago. When the need arised for an additional amount, they took care of my needs within 5 days. Their customer service has always been helpful over the phone and their email communications are great.
