What are the benefits of Slam Dunk Loans?

One main benefit is the no obligation application. You don’t have to accept a loan if you’re unhappy with the terms and conditions of the lender you qualify for.

  • Simple process. Apply easily and within minutes to be connected with a lender that fits your needs.
  • Fast funding. While turnaround varies by lender, you could see funds in your bank account as soon as the next business day after approval.
  • Poor credit welcome. You may be able to get a loan even if you have poor credit.

What to watch out for

  • Not a direct lender. Because it’s a loan connection service, your information could be sold to other lenders as a “lead.”
  • APRs can be high. Depending on the lender you’re connected with, your APR could be in the four digits.
  • Lenders are a mixed bag. Because every lender in the network has its own policies, conditions and fees, be sure to review everything before signing any agreements.
  • No live chat. You’ll have to call or email customer service for help.

You may be sent to collections. Before you sign a contract, read the terms and conditions of the lender you’re interested in. If you don’t understand the policies, ask as many questions as you need until you’re comfortable with the terms.

It depends on the lender you’re connected with, but most lenders do not charge fees for early repayment.

That depends on your lender and state of residence, but most often, yes. It usually comes with an additional fee.

Short term lenders typically do not a perform credit check with the three major credit bureaus. That’s not to say that all won’t, however. If you’re concerned about adversely affecting your credit, you can ask the specific lender you’re connected with about credit checks.

Short term lenders tend to use an alternate credit reporting system, called Teletrack. Learn more about no Teletrack loans.
