How to apply for a Simple Loan online
Our application process is fast and easy.
Once you submit your application, we’ll gather your credit information. How long does it take for a loan to process? Typically, we notify you with your loan approval status in less than a minute.
If your loan is approved, funds are available within minutes. You can close your loan online and access the funds from your U.S. Bank checking account.
Your first payment will be due no sooner than 30 days after your loan is approved. Your next two monthly payments will be due on that same day of the month.
If you choose automatic payments for your Simple Loan, the minimum amount due will be automatically deducted from your checking account on the day it's due. To make manual payments you can log in to mobile or online banking, visit a branch, call us at 800-872-2657 or mail a check to the address on your statement.
Yes, you can pay off your loan faster by paying more than the minimum amount due, but it won't reduce the fees you owe. There's no pre-payment penalty for paying the loan off early.
No. Because a Simple Loan involves a fixed price for every $100 you borrow, there are no missed payment fees, non-sufficient funds fees or late payment fees on a Simple Loan.
After your loan is approved and booked, you can access the funds in your U.S. Bank checking account immediately. Funds deposited into your account after 8 p.m. CT will be available for withdrawal, but won’t display in your account until the next business day.
You can apply for another Simple Loan 30 days after you’ve paid off your previous Simple Loan.
