Plenty of lenders offer quick personal loans, including Avant, LightStream by SunTrust Bank, and Marcus by Goldman Sachs. They often give application decisions within minutes and provide funding within 1-2 business days of approval. In rare cases, like with LightStream, you may be able to get your loan funded the same day you apply. But you’ll need to have everything in place by a certain time of day.
Examples of quick personal loans:
- LightStream by SunTrust Bank: Can approve loans in minutes and usually takes no longer than 24 hours. Same-day funding if you sign and verify the agreement by 2:30 p.m. EST on a business day.
- Avant: Approval is possible in minutes, and decisions are typically made within 48 hours. Funding 1 business day after approval.
- Marcus by Goldman Sachs: Approval is possible in minutes, and most other decisions are made within 2 business days. Funding 1 - 4 business days after approval.
- Wells Fargo: Approval is possible in minutes, and decisions usually don’t take longer than 3 business days. Funding 1 business day after approval.
Those are just a few examples. But even though many lenders offer the potential for quick personal loans, some people will still get approved more quickly than others.
People who exceed the credit and income requirements for a personal loan usually have the fastest approval times. Those who just barely qualify may take longer to receive a decision. And if you accidentally input any incorrect information on your application, the lender will have to contact you to verify the actual details, which could delay things by a few days.
So try to apply for loans where you believe you exceed the qualifications – if you’re pre-qualified, even better. And make sure to fill out the application accurately and truthfully.
