The Good

  • Flexible loan options
  • Simple application process
  • Customer service

Flexible Loan Options

LoanMe offers personal loans amounts ranging from $2,600 to $100,000. However, that amount can vary depending on the borrower's credit score, a state of residence, and other personal information.

FICO 740 and up:

  • $7,500 to $100,000 loan amounts
  • 9.9 to 12.9 percent interest rate
  • 12 to 17 percent loan fee
  • 15-year repayment term

FICO 700 and up:

  • $7,500 to $75,000 loan amounts
  • 12.9 to 18.9 percent interest rate
  • 15 to 25 percent loan fee
  • 15-year repayment term

FICO 660 and up:

  • $7,500 to $50,000 loan amounts
  • 19.9 to 22.9 percent interest rate
  • 23 to 33 percent loan fee
  • 15-year repayment term

FICO 645 and up:

  • $7,500 to $50,000 loan amounts
  • 19.9 to 31 percent interest rate
  • 33 percent loan fee
  • 15-year repayment term

For applicants with lower credit scores, LoanMe's available loan amounts are much smaller and its interest rates are higher. There are flat loan fees instead of percentage-based fees, and the repayment terms are much shorter as well:

  • $2,600 to $10,600 loan amounts
  • 74 to 179 percent interest rates
  • Flat loan fee ranging from $75 to $2,500 ($0 loan fee in South Carolina and Wisconsin)
  • 3- to 7-year repayment terms

Simple Application Process

LoanMe advertises a quick, easy application process that can provide applicants with pre-approval in just a few minutes. The company's personal loan application asks for basic contact and personal information (state of residence, name, phone number, address, birthdate, social security number), and well as personal income information (monthly income and expenses), any business ownership, and if the applicant is or has ever been enrolled in credit counseling or a debt settlement program. The entire process can be completed online or over the phone. Funds are wired directly to the applicant's bank account, so the borrower could potentially have their money in hand within hours.

Customer Service

LoanMe provides several reliable methods for contacting its customer service department, as well as other departments such as loan applications, collections service, loss mitigation, and complaints. The general customer service department can be reached via phone or email.

The Bad

  • Fees may apply

Fees May Apply

LoanMe has not disclosed whether or not it charges origination fees, check processing fees or late fees. If you do decide to get a personal loan through LoanMe, be sure to read your contract carefully so that you are aware of all fees that you may be subject to.

The Bottom Line

LoanMe is a California-based lending company that provides personal, auto, and small business loans to customers in select states. Specific loan amounts, interest rates, fees, and term lengths vary depending on location. In some states, a good or excellent credit score may qualify applicants for higher loan amounts from $7,500 to $100,000, with interest rates that range from 9.9 to 22.9 percent. For consumers with great credit scores, LoanMe may be a good choice. However, individuals with subpar credit should consider other options, as they could be subject to an incredibly high APR with LoanMe. View Top Rated Companies

This is a joke. My credit is 688 - not great; but good. I applied for a personal loan for $10,000 to do some home improvement work. They told me I was approved and just needed to verify my bank account. After "verifying" my account four times. They said it had only been open 1 month. I have had the account for 20+ years and called the bank. I called back my "Senior Loan Agent" Andre to tell him they were checking my wife's Christmas Club account and not our checking account. Then a Customer Service Rep called to ask me some questions to verify my identity. I answered everything. He said I would be getting a call from Andre with good news. I literally was hanging up with him - when I got the "decline" letter. Indicated because of my credit score and delinquent account. I missed one payment of $40 back in 2013. Other then that, I have 1 credit card, no loans, nothing....Amazed at the fact that they literally ran me through the ringer and after verifying my identity - declined me? what a joke. What is worse, I wasted an entire day dealing with these people, wasted part of my wife's day and all I got was a hard hit on my credit! Stay away!!

By far the worst company Ive ever had a loan with. My loan was for the minimum $2600, payment was $294 monthly. I made 3 payments on time with no issues. On the fourth month I had enough $ to pay off the loan. My loan payoff was more than the original borrowed amount $2712. So they received $882 in interest alone for ONLY 3 months (which was my monthly payment each month). NONE of your payment goes toward principle. you loan payoff gradually increases each month. I ended up paying $3594 for $2600 and again I only had the loan for 3 months! Oh and if you want to payoff your loan they accept MasterCard credit only if it's your card, cannot use someone else's. Anyone in a bad credit situation (expecting you will pay high APR) go with AVANT! although Interest is high at 33% it's better than the 134% with Loan me.. STAY AWAY, FAR AWAY FROM LOAN ME!!

I can't say enough good things about loanme. I have had poor credit and rude service is the norm. Not at loan me. Wonderful service. A pleasure to deal with. I am just surprised that they are understanding and helpful. The whole process of applying for the loan, receiving the funds and the service after is outstanding. I highly recommend this company.

I would only Recommend Loanme if your going to Payoff your loan early as a last resort but this should Not be your first option they suck your account dry so be prepared to payoff this debt sooner than later cause in the long run it will hurt and cost you big time not to mention the other bills you have to pay consider wisely before taking a loan from this company I just paid them off and definitely do Not plan on dealing with them again
