SuperMoney FAQs

What does SuperMoney do?

At SuperMoney, our mission is to help Americans achieve their financial goals.

SuperMoney is a comparison site that helps users review and shop for financial services and products. The core of SuperMoney is its financial service profiles. These pages offer objective data-driven summaries of financial products and services alongside recommendations and reviews from community members.

Millions of users trust SuperMoney to research and compare financial services and products.

Is SuperMoney a direct lender?

No, SuperMoney is not a direct lender – we do not make loans or directly offer, sell, or underwrite any specific financial products. SuperMoney helps people who are looking for financial products and services research leading companies in the financial services industry, get pre-qualified offers based on user-submitted information, and compare their terms before applying for those products or services through the partners listed on our site. This allows you to compare multiple offers and choose the one that best suits your needs.

What if someone claiming to work for SuperMoney contacts me offering me a loan?

If you get an unsolicited call, mail or text message from someone claiming they are from SuperMoney, it’s probably a scammer. Please note that SuperMoney will never contact you by phone, email, text, or otherwise to offer you a loan other than to communicate about loan application you have already submitted directly on SuperMoney.com. While you can research and compare loan offers, as well as a host of other consumer financial products and services here on our site, we are not a lender.

If someone offering a loan says they’re contacting you from SuperMoney, you are probably dealing with a scammer. Here are six steps we recommend taking when you spot a potential scammer.

  1. Don’t give the scammer any personal information. For example, don’t offer any bank account, address, phone, credit card, or other sensitive information over the phone or email to anyone who might be a cybercriminal. And don’t click any links on their website, email, or text messages.
  2. Block the scammer on your phone and flag their email so they can’t continue to harass you.
  3. Notify your bank if you’ve given the scammer any account or other sensitive personal information, including your social security number.
  4. Consider placing a fraud alert on your credit bureaus by contacting the three credit reporting companies.
  5. If the scammer stole money from you, contact your local police department.

Do SuperMoney personal loans affect your credit score?

Checking loan offers on SuperMoney’s loan offer engine involves a soft credit pull that does NOT affect your credit score. You may get adverse action letters from lenders that indicate that your credit was pulled, but these are required by law and do not indicate that a hard credit inquiry occurred. However, please note that if you do decide to accept an offer and move forward with the loan, lenders will typically do a hard credit pull at that time.

How can I find SuperMoney’s phone number?

SuperMoney, like Google or Yelp, is a free online-only service that offers support through email at support@supermoney.com or on our website at https://help.supermoney.com/. We’ll be happy to try and answer any questions you may have.
