Is Green Day Loans Legit?

Looking for a cash advance online? Here are some safe alternatives.

You know the feeling. You’re all set to make it to payday. Then you’re hit with an unexpected expense. A medical bill.  A broken-down car. It ain’t fun.

So you’re frantically googling “I need $100 now.” This is where loan companies, payday lenders and cash advance apps come in.

So it’s good to do some thorough research into a company before taking their money.

Here’s the low down on Green Day loans.

Here’s what Green Day Loans  offer according to their website

📍 On their website, Green Day loans offer up to $5000 with an installment loan and up to $1000 with an online payday advance.

📍 In the state of California, they offer a same-day cash advance of up to $255 “due to local laws.”

📍 There is little information available on Green Day Loans’ website about fees and interest rates. They state:

“A poor credit loan can amount to a sum of $20 for each $90 you borrow. The exact amount is not uniform across the USA, as each type of legislation can vary by state.” They don’t provide a time frame for this fee, but in the least, if you borrow $180, you’ll end up paying $220 back.

📍 Green Day loans offer these products for people with no credit score or a bad credit score.
