Paid off loan and wouldn't lead to me again

Initially borrowed £300 from them and had just made the first months payment and decided to pay off the full amount so saving myself nearly £300 in interest. I did this over the telephone by means of a Visa debit card and amount was taken instantly. I then applied for another loan a few days later and was rejected without reason. I was told I needed to write in for an answer. I can only assume they don't like their loans being paid early and losing interest payments. Truly bizarre.

Our review of Pounds To Pocket

Pounds to Pocket boast one of the cheapest representative APRs on Choose Wisely at 278.2% which is very competitive. Even so, they will carry on credit and affordability checks before granting the loan. Although they boast about being a responsible lender, they do allow customers to apply for another loan with them immediately after their last payment has been completed. This feels like they are condoning high-cost short-term lending as a long-term solution, which it really isn’t.

Unlike most payday lenders, you can repay your Pounds to Pocket loan over 12 months, instead of 30 days. Although this allows you to make smaller, more manageable repayments, borrowing over a longer period will mean that you increase the total cost of the loan, so you should only borrow for as long as necessary and if you can, try to make overpayments or settle the loan early as you won’t be charged for doing so and will pay less in the long run.

As with any high-cost short-term product the usual warning applies. If you have any doubt whether you can afford to repay your loan on time and in full, then don’t apply. By missing or being late with repayments, you will not only harm your credit file but could be subject to a number of fees, which can soon make things very expensive.

Overall verdict: Pounds to Pocket are one of the cheapest but highly scoring lenders on Choose Wisely. If you’re looking for a short-term loan then they are worth investigating and the ability to top-up the loan is certainly an attractive incentive. But, be warned, if you think you need more money over a longer loan term then a personal or guarantor loan would offer a much cheaper rate of interest.
