Your ticket out of high-interest debt

The problem with credit cards and most personal loans isn’t that they result in more debt; it’s that they create more high-interest debt.

If your credit card company was charging you 9% interest instead of 19%, the cost of carrying that debt for months—or years; it happens—would be a lot less daunting, wouldn’t it?

Symple’s digital approach helps keep consumers’ borrowing costs low. With no brick-and-mortar locations to drive up overhead, the company can offer low rates and fees and continue investing in the kind of technology that makes for a smooth loan process.

Symple’s rates start as low as 5.75%. That’s more than two-thirds less than the rate attached to Canada’s most affordable credit cards.

Flexibility to meet your needs

Symple’s personal loans come with an added element that credit card companies, banks and other online lenders often fail to provide: flexibility.

When dealing with a credit card company, the terms aren’t exactly up for negotiation. Symple allows you to choose the loan term—up to seven years—that best suits your budget and lifestyle.

If you’re familiar with personal loans in Canada, you’ll know that some lenders often prevent borrowers from paying their loans off as quickly as they’d like by charging them early repayment fees. When these fees are high enough, borrowers can wind up being locked into loans—and paying interest—for longer than necessary

Early repayment fees aren’t a factor when you borrow from Symple.

“We don’t want to penalize people for being responsible and putting themselves in a position where they can pay us back early,” Gold says. “If we can help borrowers achieve financial stability, we see that as a win-win.”

Gift yourself some certainty

This holiday season, with high inflation and a nagging pandemic hanging over the country, one thing on everyone's mind is uncertainty.

If you’re paying for your holiday shopping with credit cards and saddling yourself with bills that your providers are happy to let you pay off indefinitely, you’re really only adding to that uncertainty. You don’t know when you’ll pay the balances off, or how much interest you’ll wind up paying.

With a personal loan from Symple, you’ll know how much your loan will cost you and when you’ll have it paid off. At a time when few things are set in stone, that kind of assuredness is a gift you deserve to give yourself.

And if you still have additional items to buy during the holidays, like more presents or a well-earned winter getaway for yourself, don’t forget that a personal loan can be taken out before you make your purchases. You could potentially complete your holiday shopping without leaning on your credit card at all.

Personal loans don’t have to be after-the-fact solutions. They make an excellent bandaid, but a little preventive medicine may be better for your overall financial health.
