Don't Get Caught in the Cycle of Payday Loans

Unfortunately, these short-term loans can trap borrowers in an expensive cycle of debt that drags out for many weeks or months. Payday loans are intended to be paid off in two weeks, but the average borrower ends up being in debt for 212 days and paying more interest and fees than the original loan amount.*

How it works: When you apply for a payday loan, you write a check to the lender for the amount of the loan plus a fee. The lender holds this check and gives you cash or wires funds to your account. At the end of the loan term (typically two weeks, to coincide with payday) the lender will cash your check or withdraw the funds electronically. If you can't repay, you'll pay another fee to renew the loan.

High costs: Many borrowers get stuck paying fees on top of fees for the original amount borrowed, and that's where payday loans can get outrageously expensive. The rates and fees lenders can legally charge varies by state, but the average annual percentage rate (APR) for a two-week payday loan is 391% to 521%.*
