    Something better than nothing

    (0) (0)
    Submitted application to re-finance with 1st Investors on 6/22/16. Lending Tree showed credit score of 585, but the 1st Investors' notecard that was mailed to me showed a credit score of 545 (auto score). The paperwork process with 1st Investors was 100% complete by 6/29/16. So, it took approximately 7 days to complete. My previous auto lender had also reported to the 3 credit agencies that my account was paid in full and closed on 6/29/16. 1st Investors now shows on all 3 credit reports as of 7/14/16. I re-financed to remove my auto loan out of the negative standing category on my credit report into the positive standing. 6 months was added to the term of the loan. APR decreased, but not even by a single digit, so nothing to brag on there. Monthly payments decreased by $29.00, still nothing to brag on. To make a long story short, the only advantage of me refinancing was to list auto as positive standing on credit report. No car payment for the month of July (although interest continues to grow) also helped me to get caught up on other bills. Overall, I'm pleased.... Read More

    waste of time

    terrible experience with all so called lenders from lending tree. All are "You got approved for a great rate" then when you respond its "Oh lets see what we can do" what a huge waste of time. I regret ever signing up with lending tree.

    My credit is on the low side.. but they gave me a much better rate than my credit union was offering. i love that my over payment goes straight to principal without me having to ask.. 2 payments in and everything is good so far..

    The service and information I received from First Investors was fantastic. The rep I spoke with was extremely knowledgeable, and he was very experienced. He was clear as to my options. I haven't received service like this from a lender in a very long time.

    Stay away from them

    Like others that posted I was approved then denied but it turned out I was actually approved. Not sure how that worked. I was looking to do a refinance. Wishing I hadn't bothered. I am now in a Chapter 13 but my loan with them was not suppose to be affected, meaning it is paid out of the plan by me. The trustee doesn't pay them, I do. Well now they will no longer allow me to pay online, nor can I pay once a week instead of monthly. I get paid weekly so had been going online and paying $100 a week which is more than my minimum payment and the total amount was always there before the due date. Now I can no longer make weekly payments, they won't accept them and I have to call them every month. When I asked for an explanation since they are not in the bankruptcy, she got rude and hung up on me. I don't get it since the bankruptcy does not affect them in any way. They get their full amount of money versus the other creditors that are only getting a percentage... Read More

    Denied!

    My credit score has gone from poor to fair over the past year so I applied to have my car refinanced and was denied by email! They didn't even bother calling me! I should have known better than to apply with this company after reading all of the other negative review! UGH!

    Not for the Truly Needy

    I was recommended to go to Lending Tree.com since my current loan was on the verge of repossession, with an astronomical rate. The three "matches" they got me were reduced to two, when moments later, this approval was followed by a denial. Seriously, do you even pull the FICO score before you come up with a "match"?
