Why you pay lower rates
When you apply for a LendingClub Bank loan, you benefit from an efficient, streamlined process that reduces administrative costs. We pass these savings on to you in the form of a lower annual percentage rate (APR) than the average credit card and a faster turnaround time on your loan.
 On average, personal loans from LendingClub Bank are offered at an APR of 15.95% with an origination fee of 5.00% and a principal amount of $15,800 for loans with term lengths of 36 months, based on current credit criteria and an analysis of historical borrower data from March 1, 2021 to April 12, 2021. For credit card purchases made in March 2021, the average APR was 20.29%, according to publicly available information published by TheBalance.com. If you pay off a credit card balance of $15,010 with an APR of 15.95% over 36 equal monthly payments, you will pay $5,152 in total finance charges. If you obtain a loan with a term of 36 months and an amount financed of $15,010 (principal amount of $15,800 with an origination fee of $790) at 15.95% APR, you will pay $3,975 in total finance charges over the term of the loan, a savings of $1,177 as compared to the average credit card.
Savings are not guaranteed and depend upon various factors, including but not limited to interest rates, fees, and loan term length.
