SmarterCash - A Pay Day Alternative

Smarter Cash a pay day alternative

Life’s unexpected events don’t always wait for pay day.  Sometimes, people need quick access to cash for living expenses or other needs, prior to the arrival of their weekly or bi-weekly paycheques.  Unfortunately, “corner store lenders” have preyed upon consumers by charging exploitive interest rates designed to trap these individuals into an unsustainable cycle.

WFCU Credit Union has developed a fair and responsible solution, SmarterCash: A Pay Day Loan Alternative.

A SmarterCash loan is designed for members who need quick and easy access to cash, with fixed interest rates, and repayment schedules set in conjunction with the member’s pay cycle. SmarterCash loan maximums are based upon a percentage of the member’s Net Pay, with a range of $500 or less to a maximum of $2,000.

And with WFCU Credit Union, approvals are always easy and hassle-free!  Funds are advanced by cash on the spot with instant approval, or by pre-authorized credit to an account at a designated financial institution.

SmarterCash Is The Better Pay Day Alternative

SmarterCash is a short-term solution to a member’s immediate cash flow needs, and costs so much less than the competition.
