Short-term loans, like payday loans and flex loans, are an expensive form of borrowing. Compare interest rates and fees, and look up reviews on the company you’re considering borrowing from. Also consider exploring options that don’t involve borrowing. This could include asking family and friends for help, picking up extra work, or selling unwanted items.

Most lenders in Memphis will require you to have an active bank account. This is to help ensure that funding and repayment are as easy as possible.

For an online flex loan, you’ll likely need to authorize the lender so they can deposit your cash advance and debit your account when it comes time to repay. For in-store payday loans, they may ask for a post-dated check that they will cash when the loan comes due.

Yes, there are many types of online loans available in Memphis — including flex loans. Online loans are often a convenient way to borrow money, but you should be sure to research your chosen lender.

Online loans often offer an easy loan application process and can get you fast cash to cover unexpected expenses and other urgent financial needs. Online applications are often simple and can be completed in just a few minutes. You may be required to provide proof of income and proof of identity (such as a photo of your driver’s license).

Flex loan. With a flex loan, you’ll receive access to available credit that you can tap as needed. You can use all or some of your credit limit, and only pay interest and fees on the amount you borrow. Flex loans are available online in Tennessee or through brick-and-mortar lenders.

Line of credit. Similar to a flex loan, a line of credit is a revolving form of financing that allows you to borrow up to a set limit. Having a line of credit can be useful in emergencies because you can borrow from available credit without reapplying.

Installment loan. When you think of taking out a loan, you probably envision an installment loan. You receive a lump sum of money and pay it back with interest and fees over a set period of time. Unlike a payday loan, there are no laws in Memphis or Tennessee that set a limit on how much you can borrow with this type of personal loan. The repayment period is also longer. This kind of loan is good for many funding needs — from debt consolidation to emergency home or auto repair.

Title loan. With a title loan, you use your car as collateral to secure funding. In Tennessee, qualified borrowers can receive up to $2,500 — five times the maximum for a payday loan. However, if you default, the lender may take possession of your vehicle.
