*The Comparison Rate combines the lender's interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the true cost of a personal loan. The comparison rates displayed are calculated based on a loan of $30,000 for a term of 5 years or a loan of $10,000 for a term of 3 years as indicated, based on monthly principal and interest repayments, on a secured basis for secured loans and an unsecured basis for unsecured loans. WARNING: This comparison rate applies only to the example or examples given. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and cost savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.

What personal loan does SocietyOne offer?

Unsecured fixed rate personal loan:

SocietyOne fixed rate personal loans are suitable for small to medium-sized ticket purchases such as a car or holiday because the maximum loan amount is $35,000. You can choose between two, three or five year loan terms, and fortnightly or monthly loan repayments. Even though SocietyOne loans have a fixed rate, you can still make extra repayments and clear the balance earlier without paying a fee. Just keep in mind you can’t dip into them via a redraw facility. Something else to factor into the budget is an establishment cost which gets calculated from your credit ranking.
