Rates & Fees
Neither this website nor the operator of this website, Preferred Loans Texas, LLC is a lender. We do not offer, provide, or make loans. We provide a loan finding service by connecting Consumers looking for loans with lenders who may provide such loans. Only your lender can provide you with information about your specific loan terms including APR, fees, charges, and repayment period. Ask your lender for their current rates, fees, charges, and policies for non-payment.
The Annual Percentage Rate, or APR, refers to the total cost of a loan on a yearly basis. It takes into consideration the interest rate, the costs and fees associated with the loan as well as the repayment terms. If a lender had no fees whatsoever other than the interest charged on the loan, the APR and the interest rate would be the same. Because APR is an annual calculation, it appears very high when applied to short-term loans that are intended to be repaid over a number of weeks or a few months.
Depending on the type of loan you receive from a lender representative APRs may range from 36% to 1825.00%. However, APRs for most consumer loans offered by lenders participating in our network typically range from 260.71% to 1825.00%. APRs vary according to the information supplied in your loan request and each lender’s policies, rates, and terms.
Lenders are required by law to disclose the APR to consumers before a consumer loan can be issued. All financial terms of your loan, including APR, fees, charges, and repayment period, will be provided to you by your lender and may vary by lender, state, and your individual creditworthiness. You are NOT required to accept the terms of the loan that a lender offers you. If you don’t agree with or don’t like the terms of the loan offered by the lender, do not electronically sign the loan documents.
Consumers may qualify for installment loans and personal loans at lesser rates than short-term loans. However, most Consumers who use our service have only qualified for a short-term loan product.
Penalties Based on Late Payments or Non-Payment
Every loan, no matter how big or small, is a debt that must be repaid. If a loan is not paid when due it may result in:
- Additional finance charges and fees
- The account falling into collections
- Negatively impacting your credit history
It is important to understand the terms and conditions as well as the resulting obligations of your loan before signing the agreement. Please read the loan document carefully, review the financial implications of late and non-payment, and ask your Lender to explain anything you don’t fully understand. If you are having trouble making your loan payment, give your Lender a call. They may be able to work with you to refinance or extend your loan. The options available depend on your Lender’s policies, your state and local laws, and other factors. However, keep in mind that extending or refinancing your loan will result in additional finance charges and fees. Only your Lender can provide the specific repayment options and details if you can’t repay your loan on time. Each Lender has their own terms and conditions, please review your Lender’s policies for further information.
Preferred Loans Texas, LLC strives to connect you with a long-term financial solution and adheres to the OLA Responsible Lending Policy. A short-term loan is an expensive form of credit intended for short-term financial needs only, and should not be used as a long-term financial solution. Before taking out a loan consider how it will affect your finances in the future. We recommend creating a realistic budget that includes the loan payment. If you don’t have enough money to pay all of your living expenses, debts, and the loan payment you should reconsider the loan because owing more than you can afford to repay can damage your credit for years to come. If you are experiencing credit difficulties, please seek credit counseling or meet with a nonprofit financial counseling service in your community.
Please follow these responsible borrowing practices:
- Consider all your options
- Borrow only what you can afford to repay
- Provide complete and accurate information to the Lender
- Read the terms and conditions carefully
- Ask questions if you don’t understand something
- Budget for repayment
- Avoid over-borrowing
