But with Marcus, getting an installment loan doesn't have to be.

What is an installment loan?

It’s called an installment loan because you pay back the loan principal and interest in monthly installments, thus “installment loan.”

The borrower repays the loan over a mutually agreed-upon amount of time with a specific set number of scheduled payments.

Simple as that.

An installment loan is a loan that is repaid, generally with interest, over a set period of time – in a set schedule of payments called installments. This allows individuals to borrow sums of money that can then be repaid over time—it’s great for people who don’t have the money to repay the full amount all at once.

Which should I use? Installment loans or credit cards?

Installment loans and credit cards each serve a different purpose and are useful in their own way.

At the end of the day, though, an installment loan could be the best option to consolidate your debt—or for when you are in need of a large lump sum for an upcoming expense.

You could place personal expenses on your credit card, only to be hit with late fees if you forget to make a payment. Plus, the interest rate on your credit card could go up. This means your debt may just grow and grow, faster than you could say “higher interest rates.”

With Marcus, you could get an installment loan of up to $40,000—which may have a lower interest rate than a higher-interest credit card—to finance many of life’s needs.

Another thing to consider is, unlike your credit cards, Marcus loans have fixed interest rates. This could help you save money over higher-interest credit cards that, sometimes, increase their rates, forcing you to shell out more money each month.

Rather than worry about fluctuating payment amounts, you can select your loan amount and desired monthly payment.
