There is a school course I want to take that will help me career wise and there is a debt looming over me that I want to take care of before they try to take it to collex and judgements. I worked so hard to keep everything clean that I don't want it ot hit. Now, I just can't pay off the debt, it's about 1500 and I just got laid off. Even if a personal loan is bad on my credit, I prefer that over a judgement/collection.
Where are some good places to look for personal loans. what is the difference between secure/unsecured?
Sorry to hear that you got laid off. Hopefully you are actively looking for work so that you can at least keep your payments on-time. You will have a hard time getting a personal loan with no income you can show.
A secured loan means you put $1,500 in deposits in the bank and they loan you $1,500 with your money securing the loan. Probably not something that would work for you unfortunately.
I do wish you luck in getting things squared away and hope the course does help you out.
Thanks everyone. I should have mentioned, I thought of this because I have to take out a personal loan by a lender the school recommends. I figured why not kill a few birds with one loan. HA!
oh and of course I'm actively looking for work. Hopefully this won't be a long unemployment season.
so is affirm for online purchases only? Or would I have to make the purchase with Discover and then Affirm comes in? Does affirm only work for merchants who use affirm?
OK, this is funny, affirm is who the school suggests.
