Pre-approved by US Bank!

I went from FICO 642 to 714 in 3 months, Thank You Forum! Then today got a pre-approval for $35,000 auto loan from US Bank. Not sure the interest rate or when I'll find out, I may need to call them.

Great bank, congrats. See if you can get promo financing from the dealer.

Stick with the 48 month's if the dealer can't hook you up with something better.

How long did it take for them to call you? I just got preapproved yesterday for $22K.

Re: Pre-approved by US Bank!

Got pre approved online then a couple of hours later got an email telling me to call with any questions. I called and got a voicemail but they called me right back. I was surprised to get a personal email and phone contact number, not just a generic contact number. Impressed with US Bank customer service. It may help that I'm a current customer.

Can you PM me the number you called? I want to reach out to them to get the rate. I'm thinking about going shopping this weekend. I'd hope, as a current customer and employee, I'd be able to get an answer. Smiley LOL

Got my car today: 2013 Altima, $29,000 financed. The dealer beat US Bank with 2.8% for 72 months. I'm very pleased with that rate!

Ugh, why did you go with the higher rate?

 

The dealer probably could have done 1.9% for 60 month's.

 

The long loan terms people are going with is starting to frustrate me. How can you predict your financial outlook for the next 6 years? Or even keep a vehicle for 6 years. Paying such a small amount each month on something that goes down in value so quickly is just setting yourself up for problems.

Re: Pre-approved by US Bank!

They wouldn't have gone to 1.9%, maybe 2.4%. Based on the way I make payments and the fact that I keep my cars until they die, I was very happy with the term and rate.
