Personal Loans Tips, Info & FAQs
Consumer loan granted for personal use
Need to cover a big expense, but don’t have collateral? As an unsecured, signature loan, it requires no collateral and comes with a low, fixed rate. It is paid back in installments, and you can even defer your first payment up to 60 days from the date you finalize the loan.
What should you use your personal loan for?
A personal loan is a very convenient way to deal with expenses. However, you want to be careful what you use it for. If you need a personal loan in Bexar, Kendall or Comal County, here are our San Antonio personal loan experts’ recommendations:
Do use a personal loan for…
1. Debt consolidation
If you have high-interest credit cards eating away at your income, transferring the debt to a personal loan is a good idea. You’ll enjoy lower rates and payments than you would with the credit card companies.
It might seem odd to get a personal loan for a wedding when wedding-specific loans already exist. However, a personal loan gives you more flexibility with your choices.
You shouldn’t take out a personal loan for every little trip, but for milestone events, such as an anniversary excursion, a personal loan is the perfect solution.
Don’t use a personal loan for…
If you consistently need extra cash for everyday expenses, it’s time to reconsider your financial situation. You may need a new budget… or a new job. A personal loan will not be enough to solve the problem.

Great staff and friendly service every time I use the drive through or stop in the branch. I moved from California and have been an account member for almost a year and a half with no complaints. I just recently purchased a home and was able to borrow funds to make the proper renovations thanks to Beverly and her excellent customer service. She was also very accommodating to my schedule.
