Payday loan alternatives in Houston, TX.

In Houston, CashNetUSA arranges a CAB installment loan for amounts similar to (or more than) what a payday loan can provide. Unlike a payday loan — which is generally repaid within a month — CashNetUSA’s CAB installment loan is repaid in installments bi-weekly or monthly over a series of months. This makes a CAB installment loan a useful payday loan alternative for people who need a little more money than a payday loan, or a little longer time to repay.

At CashNetUSA, you can apply for funds in minutes and receive an instant decision.* If approved before 1:30 p.m. CT Monday – Friday, you can receive your funds as soon as the same business day!

One of the features of CashNetUSA’s CAB installment loan is the CAB fee rebate. If you repay your loan early, we don’t penalize you — and we may rebate a portion of your CAB fee depending on when you repay.

Online loans in Texas can come in many different forms. Funding amounts and repayment terms may differ from loans acquired through brick-and-mortar lenders in the city. This is because online loans are regulated by the state of Texas — Houston restrictions do not apply.

With CashNetUSA, there’s no need to visit a physical location. Our online process allows you to apply for the money you need to handle emergency expenses anytime, anywhere.

Installment loans. Online installment loans, such as CAB installment loans, can generally provide the same amount or more than a payday loan. You repay over a few scheduled installments — commonly over a term length of several months. CashNetUSA’s CAB installment loans offer funding amounts up to $1,500 for new customers*.

Lines of credit. An online line of credit is a form of credit that lets you borrow funds from an approved credit limit. It’s a form of “revolving credit” (like a credit card), which means the amount you can use replenishes as you repay. In Texas, the home equity line of credit (HELOC) is more common than a personal line of credit. HELOCs are a form of “secured” funding, because the equity of your home serves as collateral. Because the line of credit is secured, it can be less expensive than other types of personal loans.

Payday loans. Online payday loans are one of the most common ways to borrow money fast. Payday loans are typically repaid upon your next payday — within seven to 31 days. Because Texas considers businesses that issue payday and title loans to be "Credit Access Businesses," these are also known as CAB payday loans in the Lone Star State. CashNetUSA does not offer payday loans.

Title loans. Online title loans are another form of secured funding. With a title loan, your vehicle serves as collateral. Online title loans can be a good option for people who have an urgent financial need and don’t qualify for other forms of personal credit. If you can’t repay the loan, however, the lender may take possession of your vehicle. In Texas, there is no limit on title loan amounts, but there is an interest rate cap of 10%.

Like all payday lenders and auto title loan companies in Texas, CashNetUSA is designated as a “Credit Access Business” (CAB). That means rather than lending to people directly, we arrange loans between a person and a lender. Our entirely online process makes it easy for customers to apply for, receive and repay the money they need all through our streamlined interface.
