    Are payday loans legal in Phoenix?

    No, payday loans are prohibited in all of Arizona including Phoenix. If a lender wants to provide a consumer loan in Phoenix, it has to abide by Arizona Revised Statutes 6-601 et seq. The same laws also apply to out-of-state lenders that seek to provide online loans to residents of Phoenix. This comes after the new law that came into effect on July 1, 2010.

    No lender can charge more than 36% APR for a loan. Since most payday lenders charge far more than that, they no longer offer their services in Phoenix.

    Why are payday loans illegal in Phoenix?

    Arizona lawmakers determined that the high interest rates charged by payday lenders, usually into the hundreds of percents, was a predatory practice designed to keep people in debt. This is a common opinion held by many consumer advocate groups and lawmakers of other states, so in 2010, APR was capped at 36%.

    All cities in the state are required to abide by this law. This means payday lenders must either close up shop or start offering loans at this APR.

    Are there any alternatives to loans?

    • Find a local assistance program. The state of Arizona has options to help you if you’re struggling to make ends meet. Programs like the Cash Assistance Programs and the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) are there for residents of Arizona.
    • See if you can get an advance on your credit card. If you have a credit card and haven’t maxed it out, you could take out an advance on the remaining line of credit. This option can be expensive, but when you need a little extra cash, it can make a difference.
    • Talk to your creditors. Although it may seem like a waste of time, explaining your financial situation to your creditors can help you negotiate a lower payment or a new schedule.
