Features

OppLoans is a trade name of Opportunity Financial, an online lender based in Chicago, Illinois. It offers fast personal loans to people with poor to fair credit. Its rates are high when compared to prime lenders. However, they are competitive when compared to payday lenders and other lenders that target borrowers with poor credit.

The business was launched in 2009 and has provided loans to more than 25,000 borrowers. OppLoans' edge on other lenders is its friendly customer service and that it doesn't pull your credit with any of the major credit bureaus, ever. Other lenders will perform a soft pull on your credit when you check your rate but perform a hard pull on your credit if you accept the loan agreement. OppLoans, on the other hand, never pulls your credit score with Experian, Equifax, or TransUnion, so applying for a loan will not hurt your credit score.

OppLoans has an A+ rating with the BBB, a 4.9 customer rating with Google, and 4.8 rating with Facebook. 

How Does OppLoans Work?

OppLoans only accepts online applications. Applying for a loan does not affect your credit score. And it only takes only a few minutes to know if you qualify for a loan. Eligible applicants receive an instant loan agreement that details the rates and terms of the loan. If a borrower agrees to the terms and submits the loan agreement, funds are deposited within the next business day. 

As of December 2016, OppLoans operate in Alabama, California, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

In certain states, such as Kansas, Maryland, Tennessee, and Virginia, OppLoans offers a line of credit product. Rates for the line of credit range from 36% to 160% APR and have an origination fee of $50. The line of credit works like a credit card and minimum payments are 4% of the outstanding balance.

What Are OppLoans’ Terms and Rates?

Rates vary widely from state to state and depend on each borrower’s credit profile, loan amount, how long it takes to repay it. Rates range from 36% APR to 199% APR, and loan terms go from 6 to 36 months.

For example, in California, APR range from 36% APR to 160% APR and terms go from 9 to 36 months.  In Utah, rates range from 125% APR to 199% APR, and loan terms go from 6 to 24 months.

There is also an administrative fee to consider that is not included in the APR. The administrative costs vary by state. In California it is $75; in Virginia, it is $50, and in Kansas, it is a $2 of the credit limit.

A typical loan with OppLoans is for $1,000 and has 17 bi-weekly payments of $81. That is the equivalent of a 99% APR.

How Much Can I Borrow From OppLoans?

OppLoans offers loan amounts ranging from $1,000 to $10,000.

Monthly payments vary depending on the loan amount, term and rate. To illustrate, a loan of $1,000 with a rate of 99% APR and a 17 bi-weekly installment plan will have monthly payments of approximately $144.

What Is OppLoans’ Application Process Like?

OppLoans has a fast and short application process. We love how borrowers know immediately whether they are eligible and what their rates and term are. The entire process from application to funding can take as little as one business day.

How Is OppLoans Better Than Other Lenders?

  • - Fast loans and an easy application process.
  • - You receive a credit to your account if you complete one of their credit education courses.

These ppl are full of shit! After wasting my time constantly uploading documents to only have them say they haven't received them. The whole process took 3 damn days. To only have them deny you. And I only found out about the denial by logging in to their site. Never received an email which they say you will be notified by once a decision is made. Stay away from this company!!! Credit Karma needs to start looking more closely at these businesses they're suggesting to their customers.

I haven't applied yet, but looking at the reviews I am having second thoughts. If there is a way to get approved before I give my banking information then maybe I will consider. If I received a pre-approved letter in the mail, which I did; what qualified me then? So I will give my work information but I refuse to give my banking information without knowing I am approved first.

Terrible,, first they tell you are pre approved.. Then you give all your info .Then turn you down.. Hope this is not a con to get your info.. I'm going to notify the F.B.I. I think the positive reviews are B.S.!!!

ALERT: I give this company 0 stars. If there is a way to get a loan from anyone else I highly advise that you do. I sent a payment in the mail towards the end of April and this company did not process it until I called and made a big fuzz about it. Apparently someone was sitting on processing my check all the while the stupid loan kept accumulating extremely high interest. They returned 20.00 dollars of interest which I seriously doubt was the correct amount. ... But they are online so there really is no way to check on them. I logged on to my account with them so that I could see the transactions for myself and it is not listed so who knows what they are doing. Thank goodness that they will process the excess funds I overpaid within 3-5 business day. I surely hope they will come through on their promise. It already took them over two weeks to process my overpayment of 607 dollars at the time I mailed it but know I am only receiving about 550 of it and that includes the 20 dollars they agreed to return in fees. I can’t believe they took over two weeks with the process, if I hadn't called they probably would have charged more than a month's worth of horrific interest rates. I felt robbed throughout the entire process. And I promise that I will NEVER again do business with OppLoans. They make you feel like it’s a great opportunity for a loan but no; it’s a perfect opportunity to getting robbed by OppLoans. More Less

I received an approval letter in mail. Only to be denied once I applied. I hate the fact that my account information was given prior to knowing I was not going to be approved. It seems like a scam to get personal information.

My car transmission broke and I had to get money from anywhere possible, these guys were very helpful and I was able to get over $1500, I have them take the payment out of my checking account automatically so that way I ensure I don't miss a payment. Very very reliable.

I went through the process and was told I was pre-approved. then in an hour I get denied. Complete liars. They should NOT be able to mislead.

I was having an okay experience until they lied to me. I made the mistake of forgetting to change my payment date. The payment date is 1/15, and NOTHING showed until 1/17. I called to explain and I was told that the payment POSTED and could not be refunded to help get my banking fees off. They said I could go a head and refinance because the payment posted. So, I went through the process of that and now 3 days later they are saying the payment was returned, they ... will not supply any financial assistance on the fees I have in my bank and they refuse to refinance my loan even though now I cannot pay my rent because of this payment. I understand it my fault over the payment but you all lied, and on top of that I was told 3 times on 1/18, I would get a call back, but I never did. I will pay this loan off and never revisit again.

These people act like they wanted to give me a loan asked me to submit the same info over and over again I gave them everrthing they asked for kept sending same email verify your bank acct....then tells me my application had expired..what a joke this was day 9.I verified bank info 3x. Dont waste your time.They also lied about their maximum interest rate...phony positive reviews

I think they are scam artists. First of all, why advertise that people with bad credit can apply only to be denied? Second, Their automated phone number claims that it takes up to 24 hours to get a decision for an application, but yet, when I applied, I get denied right after submitting the form. And third, I believe these positive reviews are phony and the company are paying people to post phony reviews.

Had a previous loan out and changed jobs. I set up a payment plan with the collections manager for the balance of $145.27. I have emails saying it was paid off and I could reapply for a loan. I reapplied a year later and got no response. I contacted them and was connected to Stanley who informed me that I could apply I would just be denied. Nice place to do business with.

Yes, they gave me the money quickly and it was fairly easy, but they didn't tell me how much I was going to have to pay on it when the due date came. I emailed and emailed over and over and never got a response. I couldn't get an answer om the phone. Just bad customer service. I was worried. Then it started coming out, 97 a month. Not so bad. Then suddenly the week after next I got charged again and totally was not expecting it because again THEY ... WOULDNT REPLY TO MY EMAILS. It's been a couple months and I can't get caught back up. So I look on the website to see how much I have left to pay them and it's still about 900 out of 1000? Wth, I'm thinking as I look into it for an explanation. And then there it is. Over half of what I'm paying is interest! So I got 1000 and will end up paying over 2000 for it. Another question I sent them in a few of the emails that were never replied to. Dont trust it please. I was led to believe the interest rate would be left, I assumed the payments would be monthly, and they just did not bother to care. More Less

Hope this is not a scam. I got a pre approved up to 4000 I applied. I got denied. I don't mind getting denied but how you going to deny me right after I submit application??? After I put my information out there hope this isn't fake.

The process is high and fast and also have excellent customer service. But my only problem will have to be with the interest rate. Way to high to be paying back a loan. I feel with this amount being the charge I will never pay this loan off. I have to pay this loan and close it out. I am grateful that they approved me and was able to help me. But to charge me so much interest and the amount to pay back the loan is the way to ... high. I would never recommend this please of high fees. Trust me it is a great step to help you out but be careful with the amount you have to pay back. More Less
