Don’t believe the TV commercials, Jackson was dismissive and short. Pretty ordinary all over.
Absolutely shocking customer service and misleading quotes.
Cons Don’t sign up through a third party only to be lugged with 900 sign up from brolli and then 1600 from society one... 2500 for fees to setup a loan at 9.9 percent interest rate. Home loan setup fees are less. They try and justify that you pay no fees over the life of the loan but this is terrible as other products charge less and the fees are tiny for a three year loan. They are sharks under the guise of peer to peer. Mobile website almost impossible to find sign in. I had to ring up to find out how to setup online banking and also emailed to ask for a statement. Pros - kind of fast payment. Where flexible if I had hardship.
SocietyOne is very reliable and a great bank to consolidate your debts. Highly recommended.
Advertisements of SocietyOne promotes loan interest rates from 7.5% but once you’ve gone the ‘free quote’ process, the rate they present to you a rate of 14.5%, which is the same as my current bank’s offer. A pointless exercise to look into their product.
I have just paid off a 3 year loan and have been approved for another. I am very happy with the rate and how easy it was considering I don't bank with them and the bank I have been banking with for 25 years declined my application.
I needed a personal loan to fund some education expenses. I did some online comparison and found SocietyOne's rates to be far cheaper than the banks, so I applied and was pretty happy with the whole process. Good to see someone taking on the banks. I'd definitely borrow from them again.
Provide inaccurate information. Give you the worst possible rate even if you have a perfect credit score so they can scam more money out of you. Zero customer service. Zero accountability. Had to open this account just to let you know how SHADY this deal is.

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.
