Lending Club Joke

I applied and was offered a rate at 19.99% apr with a 732 TU credit score. Is this a joke? They said because my credit score was very low. I was thinking I would get 10 to 12%.

Who did you apply with? Most CCs now are 15-29% except for some CUs and few banks.

 

When I applied with Discover with a 709 EQ FICO, my APR is 19.99%. When I applied with AMEX with 712 EX FICO and 729 EQ FICO my APR is 22.24%. I'd be more upset but I don't carry a balance on a normal basis, maybe 1-2 months out of the year.

BCE: $0/$11,200, CSP: $0/$6500, Chase Priority Club: $0/$3500, Freedom: $0/$6000, Barclays NFL: $0/$7000 Discover: $0/$12,500, Citi Dividend: $0/$3500

EQ FICO - 728
TU FICO - 734
EX FICO(AMEX) - 712

Lending Club is a service that allows people to make private loans to other individuals.  It's not a credit card or bank.

Re: Lending Club Joke

The site states "Rates from 6.78% to 27.99%* APR. Best APR is available to borrowers with excellent credit."

Guess their idea of excellent credit is higher? :smileysad:

Start: Nov'12 EQ 699/EX 685/TU 696 / Current: April''14 EQ 715/EX 709/TU 709 * Goal 750+

Re: Lending Club Joke

Lets not make assumptions..BUT

 

The OP said TU score. He did not say a TU FICO score.

 

A TU score of 700's could very well be a 600 FICO score.

Good Luck
May all your dreams and wishes become a reality!

Re: Lending Club Joke

I'm an investor and a borrower at LC. I think they still pull TU98 (same as on here). They would have also e-mailed the score they pulled.

 

The rate isn't reliant upon scores only. It also looks at DTI, income, recentness of baddies, total baddies, years on the job, residency, etc.
