How to compare offers today
Generally, you’ll want to accept the offer with the lowest possible APR, or annual percentage rate, for your financial situation to save the most money over the course of the loan. But also important, is selecting a monthly payment that’s affordable for your budget and within your means. Check LendingTree’s real customer reviews of our lenders and be sure you select one you feel comfortable with and can trust. You should also compare available repayment terms, borrowing limits and fees, such as a loan origination fee or prepayment penalty. Consider any convenience features a certain lender may have, like a smartphone app. When you shop around for your best terms on a personal loan, you could save hundreds of dollars.
For instance, a three-year, $10,000 loan with 8.00% APR will cost about $400 less than a loan with the same amount and loan length, but at 10.50% APR.
