Key takeaways about title loans in Miles, TX

What is a title loan?

Title loans represent a form of short-term lending with high interest rates, typically used by people needing urgent cash for unexpected circumstances. The unique aspect of a title loan is its reliance on the borrower's car as security. If the loan is not repaid, the lender legally has the power to confiscate the vehicle. To secure a title loan, a prospective borrower generally undergoes an application process that involves submitting their car title, identification, and income evidence. Subsequently, the lender appraises the car's value to ascertain the loan amount, which is typically a percentage of the vehicle's total worth. It's crucial to note that the interest rates for title loans are usually steep, which renders this borrowing method quite expensive. Moreover, title loans carry considerable risks due to their collateral nature, as the borrower's car may be seized if the payments are not met on time. The potential loss of the vehicle should be weighed against the immediate cash necessity. Therefore, title loans should be treated with discretion and used as a last resort.

Why you should reconsider getting a title loan

5 reasons you shouldn't get a title loan

  1. High-Interest Rates: Title loans are known for their exorbitant interest rates, which can often lead to borrowers paying much more than they originally borrowed. [1]
  2. Predatory Lending Practices: Some title loan companies are known for their predatory practices, including misleading terms and hidden fees. [2]
  3. Debt Trap: Due to the high interest rates and short repayment periods, many people struggle to repay their loan in full. This can lead to a cycle of taking out more loans to pay off the original one, creating a debt trap that can be difficult to escape. [3]
  4. Negative Impact on Credit Score: While some lenders might not check your credit score before issuing a title loan, failing to pay it back could negatively affect your credit score. [4]
  5. Expensive Solution for Temporary Problem: While a title loan might seem like a good solution for immediate financial needs, the long-term costs can far outweigh the immediate benefits. Other options, such as personal loans, credit card cash advances, or even borrowing from friends or family, may be less expensive in the long run.

What's Yendo?

Yendo is the first credit card that's backed by the value of your car. The card can provide access to credit for those who might not be able to qualify for other credit cards. It's a real credit card, powered by Mastercard, that provides credit limits from $450 - $10,000, depending on your value of your car amongst other factors, that can provide people with access to ongoing funds. So, rather than having to re-apply for loans, for example, you can access funds up to your credit limit on an ongoing basis and, with responsible usage like on-time payments, build your credit too.

Features and benefits of Yendo:

  • Credit limit - access up to $10k in credit
  • App - the Yendo app lets you manage your account, wherever you are
  • Virtual card - access a portion of your credit limit prior to getting your physical card in the mail with the Yendo virtual card. Use your virtual card in addition to your physical card
  • Cash advances - ability to do cash advances on your card if you need to access money quickly
  • Access to revolving credit – you’ll have a revolving line of credit that opens up as you make payments
  • Credit reporting – all your account activity will be reported to the credit bureaus, giving you the perfect opportunity to build your credit
