About Springleaf Personal Loans

Springleaf Financial personal loans interest rates can be as high 45% APR. Its average interest rate in 2012 was just over 24%. These are high rates, but far better than payday loans. Springleaf loan amounts range from $1,000 to $20,000. Loans over $7,500 require collateral as security, such as a vehicle's title. Borrowers need to shop around, to find the best loan available, and only take out a loan that they are sure they can repay as agreed. Borrowers who pledge their car as security need to understand that a missed payment can lead to vehicle repossession. Don't pay for the credit insurance they offer, unless you understand the product's costs and benefits and then make a decision that it's worth the money.

Only choice I had

by | April 16, 2014
I was in a jam, due to unexpected medical costs and a blown transmission. I hate the interest rate I got, but if I did not get a loan, I couldn't have fixed my car and been able to get to my job.

High Interest, but the best I could get

by | November 6, 2013
My loan rate is 21%, but I needed the money and can make the monthly payments. Not the ideal option, but the best that I could find.
