The company boasts an A+ rating with BBB and has served more than 420,000 customers.
Best Egg personal loans can be an excellent option for applicants looking to consolidate debt or pay off high-interest credit card debt, primarily due to its low APRs* (which 5.99 to 29.99 percent) and long max loan lengths (three or five years). Best Egg also gives its borrowers the opportunity to pay off their loan faster than is scheduled without being charged any prepayment penalties. These loan terms provide a manageable payback process that is typically much more effective than other credit alternatives.
After the application process is complete, Best Egg provides an instant decision (approved or declined) to prospective borrowers. After submitting any documents to get verified, customers could have their money in their bank account in as little as one business day. Nearly all customers will be funded within three business days after final approval, depending on their banks’ policies.
Best Egg makes repaying loans a simple process. Customers can make loan payments by setting up an automatic electronic funds transfer, paying online, or sending a check through the mail. Payments sent in the mail should be given at least five to seven days to reach Best Egg. Borrowers enrolling in autopay for their monthly payments don’t have to worry about a payment processing fee. Customers can also set up monthly payments at a Western Union office. Keep in mind that there is a fee charged for each transfer.
Best Egg has strict approval requirements that can be difficult for subprime applicants to meet. In order to have the best chance of qualifying for Best Egg's lowest rate 5.99 percent APR, applicants should have at least a 700 credit score and an annual individual income of at least $100,000. However, any applicant with a credit score over 640 is eligible to qualify for a loan from Best Egg at a higher rate.
Best Egg charges an origination fee between 0.99 percent and 5.99 percent of the total loan amount. The company states that any five-year loan will have an origination fee of at least 4.99 percent. This fee is deducted from the loan when funds are deposited into your bank account, and is considered when calculating the annual interest rate.*
