The personal loan application online was great. It went downhill from there. We had to constantly follow up to get our money through. All up it took 8 working days from application to receiving the money in the account (the website and confirmation email states 3-5 working days). If we didn't follow up constantly it would have taken heaps longer. Now we have gone to transfer the money over to our everyday bank account to withdraw the cash -- once online banking login is blocked from doing withdrawals and the other can only transfer 33% of the total loan in one day. I regret applying and will stick with my usual bank from now on.
This personal loan is actually an overdraft and has been my saviour many times. It cannot work miracles because as a pensioner my Income makes gradual reduction difficult. Unfortunately, my Superannuation was less than sufficient for my retirement- but that isn't the bank's fault, the G&c Mutual Bank (formerly S.G.E) are supportive and understanding.
The interest rate on my SGE personal loan was a crippling 15.5%! I got a car loan through them and at the same consolidated credit card debt to a personal loan. It took me so long to pay it off. I would never do it again.
