Lowest rate for a loan. This is for 3 years or less or 4.0 % for above this. Great if you need money for new car or home improvements. If your rate does change. They will also price promise and beat any other loan that is like for like.

OP, extremely bad examples: one does not need money for new car or home improvements. If one cannot afford with cash then one cannot afford it.

Presumably you've bought all your houses outright and not used mortgages then.

I'd say home improvements is a fine way of using a loan if it adds the appropriate value to your home.

I guess it's better to get a £15,000 loan, go on holiday and then widdle it up a wall then.

Certain home improvement that needs immediate cash in expectation of more cash coming in, in the longer, as you said, is affordable, subject to a business case. Unrealised or worse still, unrealisable value by the time of the end of the loan period is probably bad (if one could wait could have paid it off outright with cash). Some reservation and exception, like home improvement for elderly mum to move in or a baby arrival etc..

Not moral high horse, just normal way of living, live within one means, if you did not believe this to be normal, ask your parents and grand parents and learn for yourself what worked for them.
Like wise when councils and government do the same as consumers, you shout at them for waste of tax payers' money (and they racked up trillions of £ and printed hundreds of billions of notes).

Wow Splender you should be looking after the countries finances. Great find,ignore the super rich people for us mere mortals it is a good % rate.

Plenty of people paying over this rate on their mortgages....

It's a good rate, we should be criticising people using the loan money for holidays not the OP

@splender Plenty of people and vast majority of institutions who borrow money dont do so because they have no choice- most have the money/means already but understand the value of cheap credit. Debt forms a part of most peoples/companies portfolios for a good reason. Youre referring to the type of people that take out a wonga loan to pay for their sky sports subscription. Suggest you take a basic finance and economics course before spouting your load on a subject you clearly know very little about.

Bookmarking for later.

Who are you to judge?

Excellent point, an unsecured loan at almost mortgage rates is a good alternative to re-mortgaging for home improvements.

HSBC have been offering this rate for a week or two longer but is only available to HSBC current account holders.

I like that you can make overpayments without penalty or settle with two months interest payble with the HSBC loan.

People may look down their noses at reputable unsecured lending but I'd rather someone took out a loan to settle their debts than default on them or go to payday lenders in desperation.

The problem we have is money management is not part of the education curriculum and I think it should be.

One can spend one's money on how one wants!

You wouldn't like the councils and government borrow money (on top of tax collected) to buy new cars and do building improvement when essential services are lacking of money.

You are spending money that you haven't got that belongs to someone else that you have to pay back with interest and abide by the 20 pages of loan agreement, monitored by credit reference agencies to see if you are a good or bad guy.

You're clearly clueless and should stop digging your hole.

You've no idea what people's intentions are for taking advantage of this deal- here are a few possibilities:

- an opportunity to invest in a purchase that will yield in excess of 4%
- an opportunity to demonstrate to those credit referencing agencies you speak of that you are capable of managing credit ahead of taking out a bigger debt such as a mortgage
- in anticipation of needing to borrow money 6-12 months down the line by which time rates are 'likely' to have gone up, ie, hedging
- perhaps you are an avid save but choose to hold your near liquid cash in investment vehicles that carry withdrawal penalties that would cost you more than the 3.9% youd pay to spend someone elses money?

or a million other reasons why this is a good deal for many people whilst not being for all. whatever the reason, none of them are your business.

Erm, I'd disagree with that. Not many people have £15k in the bank but plenty of people are capable of paying £300 a month over a period of 5 years. Just requires a bit more discipline.

I could go further with your logic and say if one does not have £250k for a house, one cannot afford a house! I think everyone would agree, that isn't the way things are...

I applied for a loan over a 12 month term, got a call saying I had to have it over 3 years which means more interest so I declined...real joke!!

Loans are perfectly fine if the person taking out the loan can afford the monthly repayments. If they can't or are stretching themselves then that should have been taken care of by the lender on application of the loan and the loan refused. Irresponsible lending as we saw prior to 2008 and pay day loans are the real problem.

One believes this to be an ignorant comment. One has heated this OP, whilst one does not need extra finance at this present time, one thanks you for highlighting this.

So I could use this to pay the credit card bills for the overspend on the home improvements (bloomin builder! but in fairness you can never have to many electrical sockets or thick enough steel beams!) already done, which then free's up income to pay for a new car on credit! (as my car is showing its age). Perhaps I could use the same loan for both...

Cold, never take out finance!

Save up and buy something that way you don't have debt if anything goes wrong.

you can get PPI for that.

i just applied.. got offered 5.0%. I feel so subprime:(

Could take out a loan to pay for all the stuff I don't need but will buy because it's cheap - thanks to this web-site.

don't worry - nobody is taking any notice of your advice. Just because someone doesn't have the funds sitting in their bank, doesn't mean they can't afford (or have not intention of) repaying it. You might like to give the impression on an internet forum/site that you are successful and do not need help with funding home improvements or cars - but you're not fooling me, as if you were so high and mighty, you wouldnt be posting deals of £12 SD cards.

dont think luck has much to do with it, its credit worthiness which most can achieve over time. agreed, this deal is for the upper most slice of the pile, which is probably not the majority, but that doesnt make it a bad deal. thats like posting a deal for a size 6 dress and saying its cold because 'youd be lucky to fit into it'.

Original Poster

I didn't think posting a deal for somebody if looking for a loan would cause such reaction for people to vote cold because it is finance. I take it is the same people that vote cold to kit kat deal as would encourage you to get fat.lol...

You are probably doing fine yes, but i'm sure there are plenty of people who are doing better that have had finance in their life
