Summer is a time for fun and excitement, but it can also be super expensive. Before you start swiping the plastic for everything under the sun, we recommend considering a personal loan to stay within your budget.
At TEG, the application process is smooth and quick. We also offer fantastic terms, with interest rates on loan payments as low as 6.55%*. When you use a personal loan instead of racking up credit card debt, you are making a responsible choice that can positively impact your finances for years to come.
To help you accomplish this, we have outlined seven ways to responsibly use a personal loan this summer.
Summer is all about freedom and what better way to feel free than getting rid of that nagging credit card debt?
Paying off multiple loans and credit card bills each month can make you feel like you’re fighting an uphill battle thanks to skyrocketing interest rates. Wouldn’t life be simpler if you only had one debt with a nominal interest rate? A personal loan can make that happen.
A personal loan can be used to pay off all your credit card and other outstanding debt, and with a single loan to pay off with a manageable interest rate, you’ll be able to make steady progress toward living a debt-free life.
2. Purchasing a boat, ATV or an RV
If you’re looking to buy a new car this summer, an option you may not have considered is a personal loan. Similarly, if you’re interested in purchasing a boat, ATV or an RV this summer, a recreational loan can help you turn that dream purchase into a reality without the exorbitant interest rate.
3.Moving to new home
Whether you’re moving a few blocks or a few states away, moving costs can be prohibitive. You’ll need to consider the expense of moving supplies; paying the mover; plus the cost of new furniture and other household items to help turn your new residence into a home. Taking out a personal loan to help you cover these expenses can make a household move a lot less stressful.
4. Getting married
According to Brides.com, the average wedding in 2018 cost more than $44,000. That’s a whole lot of money you may not have sitting around.
If you’re tying the knot, consider taking out a personal loan to help cover your wedding costs. Use your loan to fund the larger expenses, such as your rings, wedding dress and venue, or to cover the smaller costs like the flowers, travel arrangements and photographer.
6. Renovating your home
When the weather warms up, homeowners want to upgrade their homes. Whether it’s installing a swimming pool, giving your kitchen a complete makeover or turning your garage into a guest suite this summer, a personal loan can make it possible. Personal loans may be a better option for homeowners who don’t have a great deal of equity in their homes and consequently would not be a good candidate for a fixed Home Equity Loan, or a HELOC.
7. Funding medical expenses
If there are medical procedures you’ve been putting off because they’re not covered by your health insurance plan, a personal loan can help you look and feel great this summer. A personal loan can help borrowers fund elective cosmetic surgery, dental work, fertility treatments and consulting with alternative practitioners about chronic health conditions.
