Getting A Personal Loan

🔑 = If you have credit card debt and want to pay it off over 3 to 5 years, a personal loan might be a good fit.

You should also look into balance transfer credit cards.

Other reasons to get a personal loan: to cover medical expenses or other large expenses you don’t want to put on a credit card.

Be aware that a personal loan is something that you have to pay back in a limited period of time. It’s not like a credit card or a “revolving” line of credit, which you can pay off over a longer period of time (albeit at a higher interest rate).

If you do take out a personal loan, then research your options to find the best interest rate.

Here are three more things to remember.

  • Getting a personal loan will require a hard credit pull during the application process. This isn’t a huge deal, but it may decrease your credit score by a few points temporarily.
  • Don’t get sucked into a debt trap. Make a plan to pay it off!
  • Make sure that the personal loan providers you consider are trustworthy and don’t have any hidden fees.
