Get a payday loan alternative in Salt Lake City, UT.

Payday loans are available both in-store and online in Salt Lake City, Utah. They are also known as deferred deposit loans. They may be advertised as cash loans, cash advance loans or no credit check loans.

These are short-term loans. Payday lenders provide funds quickly under the agreement that the borrower repays within a few weeks — usually with their next paycheck. In Utah, you can extend (or “rollover”) a payday loan for a maximum of 10 weeks. There is no minimum or maximum amount of money you can borrow in Utah, but there is also no limit to how much interest a lender can charge.

CashNetUSA offers Utah customers a line of credit as an alternative to payday loans. A line of credit offers approved borrowers a credit limit from which they can draw funds to use as cash. As the money is repaid, the customer’s available credit increases. So when they need funds again, they can make another draw without reapplying.

Interest and fees are only charged from the amount borrowed. If approved for CashNetUSA’s line of credit, Utah customers can receive a credit limit of $100 to $3,000. Most customers receive up to $1,700.*

Learn more about payday loans in Salt Lake City, UT.

Utah state law does not specify a minimum or maximum payday loan amount. There is also no limit to how much interest a lender can charge. The average annual percentage rate (APR) for a payday loan in Utah is 554%.

Fast cash with no credit check might sound appealing, but there are risks involved when taking out a payday loan.

Most payday loans must be repaid in full. According to Utah state law, a loan cannot be extended past 10 weeks. This length may seem generous at first, but it creates room for multiple rollovers — which cost borrowers more.

Payday loans are also known to be a very expensive form of credit. Because there isn’t a limit to how much interest loan companies can charge in Utah, borrowers may find themselves paying high interest rates and sinking deeper into debt.

Other borrowing options available in Utah, including lines of credit and installment loans, offer lower interest rates and lower risk. With these payday loan alternatives, borrowers can pay smaller amounts over a longer period of time.

Line of credit. With a line of credit, you can borrow some or all of your available credit limit, and you don’t need to reapply each time you draw funds. Plus, you only pay interest and fees on what you borrow.

Installment loan. When you take out an installment loan, you receive the full amount up front and repay in installments over time, along with interest and fees.

Title loan. If you choose to take out a title loan, your car title becomes collateral. In Utah, a title loan applies to not only a motor vehicle, but also a mobile home or motorboat. Just be aware that if you default, your lender may repossess the item.

Yes, you need an active checking account for your loan application. Some in-store loan providers will cash a post-dated check, but most opt for online payments rather than check cashing. Still, online loans require a checking account to authorize an automatic debit.

Because there is no limit specified by Utah state law, you can apply for any amount to fulfill your financial needs. However, lenders are unlikely to approve you for more than you can repay. Most short-term loans in Salt Lake City range from $100 - $1,500.
