A debt consolidation loan
CCrockett52 Borrower

I was able to apply for and receive this loan in a VERY short period of time. The process was straightforward, quick, and everything they promised it would be. I received the loan in two business days directly into my checking account, and paid off three loans with much higher interest rates, substituting a much more manageable monthly payment that I have set up as an automatic withdrawal from my bank account. I would certainly do this again (though I intend to avoid the credit card interest rate trap!). You will not be disappointed.

Easy and helped me in a pinch!
Anonymous Borrower

I was drowning in interest fees and surchages on my cc balances. I own Cap One, Chase Slate and was over 60% utilization. I was paying on 2 other cards. My monthly payments were around 350-400 monthly. I saw these as a recommended offer and had been debating a while. I mean the last time I tried to get personal loan it was denied and that was 3 years ago. Well I took the plunge and got APPROVED! I was so elated. I got 10,000 within 5-7 days. The application process was easy, everything was done online. My credit score on CK is 693 but my Fico score is 701. I think CK is a little off.

Hard/unfair to compare ck score to fico because ck shows two credit bureaus score and fico is its own entity

Quick and easy

Took the pre-qualified offer from the Credit Karma site.  Since I was pre-qualified the application was short and they only wanted to confirm identity, employment and banking information.  I applied, was approved and got confirmation of the funds being sent to my bank all in one day.  The Marcus website is also clean and simple to use.   Excellent experience. Using this loan to consolidate debt.

12k was effortless. less than 6 days and its in the account . Marcus lets your history and credit score do the talking . single slot secure access to their website is simple yet effective. we are already thinking about loan 2; because we have a prosper loan and the terms marcus offers are far superior.;so with the credit score bump ;we now see a 12% point drop in interest rates.   One word of caution...Bill Consolidation means just that ...Pay off your bills and your credit  score shall rise ; then the banks will thank you with low interest rates and their best credit cards . its true !!!

Very easy process
rjt99tx Borrower

Application process is simple. I had received a pre-qualification letter in the mail. Got a 10K loan with a 701 Fico Score. Had to call in to verify some information. Customer service agent was nice and helpful. The money was in my bank in 4 days. I recommend them highly!

That interest rate?

Jan 25, 2017

I received a 10.99% interest rate which was a few
points lower than the debt I paid off.

Thanks for the info! I currently have a loan with lending club at 24% (insane right?) my bankruptcy just rolled off my credit about a month ago so my score is now 701 as well. I definitely need to refinance that loan.

I had my loan within 3 days with no fuss. Great interest rate. I would use them again. I contacted them twice and their customer service was very professional.

Incredibly easy
Jerry123654 Borrower

Marcus is really doing something great here.  I was a little nervous about the loan, but did some research prior to doing it.  Everything went so easy.  I called customer service due to an issue on the website while finalizing the loan and the lady that helped me couldn't have been nicer.  I definitely give them a "5" star rating.  This loan is really helping my situation to consolidate all my revolving debt.  Thank you so much!!!!

I received an invitation and decided to apply.  Approval was instant and the funds appeared in my bank a day later.  I've never had an easier application and funding process.
