Advance America: Can Borrowers Secure an Installment Loan Without Great Credit?

LOS ANGELES - September 24, 2020 - (

When people have expenses come up that they weren't prepared for and find themselves short of cash, a loan can be a great option to get through difficult financial times. However, some people may feel closed off from options like personal loans or good credit cards if their financial history is less than perfect.

But don't worry — past financial mistakes don't have to mean it's impossible to get a loan now. There are even installment loans for bad credit or fair credit that one can often get from a direct lender without a credit check, making it a great option for people with fair credit (ranging from 680 to 580 or less, depending on the lender). In this article, Advance America will explain how installment loans work and help borrowers decide if they're the right choice for them.

What makes installment loans different

Installment loans are loans that are usually for a larger amount of money and are paid back in installments over time. Borrowers can get installment loans for different repayment schedules, ranging from three months to years-long repayment plans.

Compared to a personal loan or credit card, it can also be very fast and easy to get an installment loan, with some being available on the day a borrower needs them and possibly without a credit check. One might be able to get an installment loan online, depending on the state.

Is an installment loan the same as a title loan?

While an installment loan can be a great option if a borrower needs cash instantly, it's not the same thing as a title loan. An installment loan will often have lower interest and longer terms, letting a person pay back the loan in pieces rather than in one lump sum. This can make installment loans easier to repay while getting the borrower the money they need when they need it.

Because an installment loan may be available to people with lower credit ratings and allows for a more gradual repayment, it can be a great solution while people rebuild their finances and work towards achieving financial wellness. While repaying an installment loan, one should come up with an overall strategy to improve their credit and finances and they'll wind up in an even better place than they started.

Should a borrower get an installment loan?

Before getting any kind of loan, it's important to research and come up with a plan for how one is going to pay back the loan. Borrowers will want to compare lenders and make sure they're getting the best interest rate from the most trustworthy and reliable lender.

It's also important to read the fine print to know how much one is expected to pay and when payments are due and to understand what happens if a borrower doesn't pay or, in the worst case, can't pay the loan back in time.

If a borrower has a solid plan for paying back the loan, fully understands the terms, and feels that having the money now will be worth the interest a borrower pays later, an installment loan might be the right choice.

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Oct 29, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Oct 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
