12M Loans, also known as 12 Months Loans Bad Credit and 12monthsloansbadcredit.com, is an online loan website founded in 2015. It helps with short-term loans (payday loans), unsecured personal loans, and installment loans. It operates one storefront in Redding, California and offers indirect loans to customers in about 40 states.

12M works with borrowers with good and bad credit.

Rather than a direct lender, 12M lets users fill out an application online, and then sends your information to dozens of lenders in its network to find the best loan you qualify for.

Although policies are left up to the lender that accepts you, most lenders will do a soft credit check.

Eligibility:

  • 18 years old
  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Active bank account
  • Active phone number and email address
  • Stable, verifiable income

There are a few different types of loans offered, but the loan you qualify for is up to your state’s short-term loan regulations.

Payday Loans:

  • Max: $1,000
  • Term: By your next paycheck
  • APR: 200%-2,290%

Installment Loans:

  • Max: $5,000
  • Term: Usually 24 months
  • Min. APR: 35.99%

Personal Loans:

  • Max: $100,000
  • Term: Up to 60 months
  • Min. APR: 4.5%

The Good

  • Friendly
  • Fast
  • Financial Education

Friendly

One of 12 Month Loans’ goals is to be a kinder, friendlier lender for borrowers with bad credit. This company works only with legitimate lenders — predatory lending practices and abusive collections behavior are not tolerated. Most 12M Loans lenders collect in-house and must follow the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

Fast

You will generally get at least one loan offer within a few seconds.

Financial Education

12M Loans offers a College of Knowledge section online.

The Bad

  • Could Hurt Credit
  • Third-Party Loans

Could Hurt Credit

The website states that unpaid loans may be reported to the major credit bureaus, but doesn’t say whether loans paid back can help your credit.

Third-Party Loans

As 12M is a loan matching service, your actual loan rates, terms, and policies will depend on the lender you do business with. There are no blanket policies attached to 12M that all lenders have to follow for NSF, late fees, renewals, cancellation policies, prepayment penalties.

The Bottom Line

This loan sourcing service offers to help people with all types of credit, stating that 90 percent of applicants are offered a loan.

Your options will depend on your credit, and you can get an offer within just a few seconds, but funds do take one business day.

Lending policies, rates, and terms will be determined by the lender that you are matched with. You won’t know which it is until you fill out the application. While 12M strives to be a friendly resource, you will ultimately have to deal with the direct lender, not 12M Loans.

High quality service and what I like most is that you really don't have to justify your your loan need. Simply fill in the form and apply without intimidating questions.

To be honest I wasn’t sure about this company and I was skeptical about it. It turns out the process to get the loan was fast. The monthly payment is very reasonable. I was very satisfied with the customer service and the gentleman’s patience in answering all my questions. I received the money the next day. I promise it was easy and quick.

I didn't think that I would obtain my loan so easy and fast. I spent only 10 minutes to fill out the loan application form, waited for the approval a bit - and voila! Considering the fact that I don't have a lot of time for filling out any forms, I will definitely use the 12M Loans user-friendly service next time.

All my efforts to apply for a loan were going pear shaped. I was very disappointed. There was no lender who accepted my request, and provided me the desired loan. 12M Loans is the one company who has seriously taken on my problem, and they have indeed helped me to receive the loan! I thinks such companies do deserves thousands of favorable comments!
