What is a cash advance?

A cash advance is, in fact, a type of loan. In a nutshell, a cash advance is similar to a credit card cash advance, except our advance loans go directly into your account!

These types of loans often refer to when you receive money ahead of time that you repay later. In other words, they are a type of loan. They are useful for when you need to pay for something but don’t have the funds readily available to do so.

Some advances can come from your employer. Whereby you make a request to receive some of your income ahead of time. You can also get these loans with Centrelink, meaning you can receive some of your income support early. In addition to a loan, a credit card advance refers to your ability to withdraw funds from your credit card. Our loans work in a similar way except you repay it along with a fixed interest rate, which is the cost of borrowing the loan.

  • Car rego – another way a cash advance can come in handy is to use them to pay for your annual car registration. Rego can be tricky when it rears its ugly head as you must pay it in one go. So, these loans can be the thing you need to cover this cost.
  • New furniture – perhaps you’ve moved into your new place and you need to furnish it, cash advance loans can be the thing you need to help you fully equip your house with all the living necessities.
  • Needed household items – perhaps your fridge stops working, or you need to replace your washing machine. These things are often necessities that are necessary to have in your household.
  • Expensive utility bills – at times, bills can be higher than expected, for whatever reason that may be. Often, we can forget about utility bills and they can creep up on you when you least expect it.
  • Wedding costs – another use of our loans is to help pay for the costs associated with a wedding. Whether it’s to pay for the dress, the caterers, the band or even the honeymoon. It’s up to you and all depends on what you need the advance for.

Cash advance loans can be great solutions for emergencies. Nevertheless, there are some things to keep in mind before deciding to borrow a cash advance.

Can I afford the repayments? A good question to ask yourself is whether you’ll be to afford the repayments. Can the repayments safely fit into your budget and allow you enough breathing space to pay for all your other bills. The last thing you want is to leave yourself short, and unable to repay your bills.

Have I met the eligibility requirements? Before applying to ensure that you have checked the eligibility requirements. Otherwise, you’ll just be wasting your time.

Is now the right time to borrow? Do you have many other financial commitments going on the same time? If so it could be worth considering waiting for these commitments to free up a little bit before you take the plunge into more debt.

Personal loans should be to serve the purpose of keeping up with everyday expenses. This is dangerous and you could end up getting yourself into unnecessary debt this way.

Examples

Loan Amount of $3,000 over 18 months repayable weekly (78 weekly repayments). $3,000 (Principle Amount) + $400 (Establishment Fee) + $555.83 (reducing interest*) = $3955.83 total repayable over 18 months with weekly installments of $50.71.

* Reducing interest means that the 20.56% APR is applied to the outstanding balance on a loan. When a loan repayment is made, the loans outstanding balance goes down and the APR is applied to that lower balance. Therefore, the interest component of the loan will constantly reduce (as long as repayments are being made!) - thus it is called reducing interest.
