What Is a Credit Line?

Revolving Line of Credit

  • Borrowers get approved for a line of credit account and receive an initial cash drawdown from their available credit when approved for the loan
  • Customers make payments each billing cycle that are comprised of principal, interest, and fees (including a fee to participate in the credit plan); after certain number of ontime payments, customers can request credit limit increases and additional drawdowns (more cash)
  • Payment amounts per billing cycle are somewhat static but can be variable depending on additional drawdowns causing changes in balances, etc.
  • “Open-end” or “revolving” are interchangeable terms used to describe the fact that there is no discrete point in time where the loan is “due” or “ends”; the borrower can keep the account open and get additional credit limit increases and drawdowns into perpetuity 
  • Our lines are offered at 35.99% APR (17.99% APR in WI)
  • Operates similarly to a credit card but without the plastic
