Can I get payday loans in San Antonio, Texas?

Payday loans in San Antonio are available through Credit Access Businesses (CABs). In 2013, the San Antonio City Council passed an ordinance to regulate CABs with physical locations in San Antonio. Some of the rules covered in the ordinance include:

  • Loans are limited to 20% of the borrower's gross monthly income.
  • Loans are limited to no more than four installments or three rollovers or renewals.
  • Proceeds from each installment or renewal must reduce the loan principal by 25%.

What payday loan alternatives are there in San Antonio?

Many different personal loans are available in San Antonio. Some of the most popular short-term payday loan alternatives include:

Title Loan

Title loans use the title of your automobile to secure your loan. That means if you’re unable to repay, the lender can repossess the vehicle as collateral. These loans are often for smaller amounts of a few hundred dollars, similar to a payday loan.

Line of Credit

A line of credit is similar to a credit card in that you’re approved for a credit limit from which you can borrow on a revolving basis. As you repay, the amount available is replenished. Lines of credit have limits ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.

Installment Loan

Installment loans are generally for larger amounts than a payday loan, and repaid (in “installments”) over a longer period of time. The payments are generally fixed and scheduled once a month. You can also often repay sooner to save on interest.

Many lenders advertise no credit check loans to people with less-than-perfect credit or bad credit history. What “no credit check” generally means is that no hard credit pull is required. All legitimate lenders will do some kind of identity or income verification before extending an offer for credit.

The state of Texas does not regulate or specify how many payday loans a person can have at one time. However, it’s generally not advisable to have more than one or two. Payday loans are an expensive form of credit, and if you’re taking out too many cash advances at one time it can be very difficult to repay.

Rather than taking out another payday loan, look for financial solutions that are more manageable long term. You may also want to consider these financial education assistance programs offered through the City of San Antonio.

When you complete a loan application in San Antonio, or other Texas cities such as Dallas or Houston, you’ll commonly need to meet the following requirements or provide the following information:
