Bad credit loans are a type of short-term loan that are designed to provide temporary financial relief to those that have poor or no credit.
The amount a lender or lending partner is willing to give you depends on how the lender or lending partner evaluates a number of factors, including your state of residence and applicable legal restrictions (loans are not available in all states). Many lenders or lending partners in our network will loan between $100 and $35,000.
Once the lender approves your loan and you accept the loan terms, your loan will be deposited directly in your bank account or prepaid card, usually as soon as the same or next day.
It should only take a few minutes to complete our secure online form. After we receive your information, we immediately start looking for a lender or lending partner that is willing to work with you. You should have a response from one of our lenders or lending partners within minutes. Final approval and funding is often done in as little as 24 to 48 hours.
There is no cost to use BlueStream. The actual cost of your loan may vary by lender or lending partner. You will be provided information on the rates and fees before you accept the loan. Personal loans are not designed as long term financial solutions but are often less costly than late charges, NSF fees or reconnect fees for overdue utilities. Please only accept a loan if you believe you have the ability to repay it.
Most lenders or lending partners require you to:
- Be employed in your current position for approximately 90 days or have another source of adequate and predicable income;
- Be at least 18 years old, and a US citizen or a permanent resident;
- Have an income of approximately $1,000 per month after tax withholdings; and
- Have a valid email address, work phone number and home phone number.
Some lenders or lending partners will ask for your permission to access your information such as bank statements or income verification online, saving you from having to fax or email copies of those documents. However, your lender or lending partner might need you to fax or email a copy of your bank statement, paycheck stubs or other information. If you do not have access to a scanner or printer, consider visiting Office Max, Kinkos or another office service provider. You should also have access to a printer so you can print a copy of your loan agreement. If you have questions after your loan is funded, you will need your lender’s or lending partner’s contact information!
If you have selected the convenient and secure ACH payment option, your loan payment will be withdrawn from your bank account on its due date. This option is designed for convenience and helps you avoid potential late fees or default! If you need an extension on your loan, please contact your lender or lending partner before you miss a payment (additional fees may be involved).
Each lender or lending partner has its own late payment policy and fees. Check your loan documents for details or contact your lender or lending partner directly. Some states may regulate or limit late fees.
If you can’t make your loan payments on time, you may be in default of your loan obligations. Late payments and loan defaults may adversely affect your credit and may make it difficult to obtain future personal loans.
If you can’t make your payments on time, don’t ignore it! Talk to your lender or lending partner ahead of time and see what they can do to help you make the best of the situation.
