How to Find Cheap Loans

Let's face it, getting money when you need it is not quick and painless. On the contrary, getting the kind of cash you may need immediately usually ends up costing you way more cash than ever down the road. But there are lenders willing to finance any type of loan you could need- from mortgage to payday- at a substantially lower price than banks you come to know. This page will help you find out ways to find those loans, and secure them so you won't be left out in the cold when trying to get a car, house, or even simply trying to keep up to date on credit card charges in today's tough economy.

Thrifty School Loans

If your an underclassmen, then you have the chance to simply attend a communitiy college and cut out the high tuition prices and other expenses associated with private schools. However, for underclassmen that want to start off with private schools and upperclassmen, the road to paying for college is long and winding.

The best place to start to find a quick loan would be the feds. Every student should fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. All full time students who do so can get up to $5,500 through the Stafford loan program. It's even better if you're over 24 or your parents have bad credit, because you are eligble for an additional $4,000-$7,000 over that! A real life saver when you consider average tuition costs are over $10,000.

Stafford loans for the fall of 2009 will charge an average annual rate of 7.1 percent interest. That may sound like a lot, but these federal loans offer lots of benefits such as the income based repayment that will allow one to pay a certain percentage below their income on bill dates.
