    Surprised by ease and speed of process

    I have been in the lending industry for 24-years. I was looking for an auto loan. I spent 10-15 minutes applying on my mobile device. I waited a day while I spoke to a credit union. When I clicked on complete app, I was expecting to navigate a longer more involved online process. I was very surprised to go through 3-4 navigation screens; accepting a loan agreement, putting in my banking info for funding and ACH payments, and an identity verification screen. It took...

    Un-Believeable Personal Loan

    Absolutely incredible! With a 768 credit score everybody else wanted between 15-19% APR interest rate. With LightStream i received a $25,000 personal loan for 9.5%, 7 years, no upfront fees/no origination, 409 dollars/month payment, filled out paperwork online, received the money in one week, could have gotten it like the next day but i didn't need it then, no documentation required. I could have gotten a rate as low as a 7% if i would have taken the loan over 2 years. I have never borrowed money like this - without talking to a single human being, this quite frankly takes a little getting used to... Read More

    Great example of a company doing it right

    They were amazing. Applied at 1030PM on iPAD. Approval email at 9AM next day, wired funds to my account by 2PM. The whole process took less than 24 hours which shocked me and they even called to confirm wiring instructions and make sure everything was good. Who does that anymore? Evidently LightStream does and they crushed Customer Experience and Service. I don't think my wife and I have ever had a process this smooth and simple regarding a loan. I would HIGHLY recommend them and will try to use them for any other needs we have in the future. So happy and still in a bit of shock :) This should be the standard... Read More

    Great Experience!!!

    This Auto loan was quick and easy. Decision was almost instantly. The best of all it was all done online. I had the loan amount deposited into my personal checking account and went and found the car I wanted and was able to negotiate better with the dealership. I would definitely use LightStream again.

    Easy to do loans

    This was the simplest loan process I ever encountered. I got a great rate and when I needed to modify the loan, it was simple and approved right away.

    Skeptic turned true believer.

    I was initially skeptical of an online only institution for my auto loan. Traditionally, I would go to my local bank, check their rate offered against whatever the car dealer would offer, and go with the best offer. So this time I decided to give it a try - and how glad I did! LightStream's offer on percentage rate was by FAR the LOWEST (the difference of about 2 and a half car payments), and my interactions with the company has been nothing but pleasant and straightforward. Everything was explained upfront, in clear easy language, and accepting the terms of their loan was as easy as pushing a button, printing out some documents to hand to the car dealer, and letting them know where to wire the monies and when I want payment taken from my account. Simple, straightforward, and pleasant. When's the last time you could say that about acquiring an automobile loan... Read More

    Quick and Convenient

    Got an auto loan through Light Stream, it was fast, quick ,convenient and thorough! Had money in my account 3 day after application. There is a credit check and must upload documents needed for loan. Would highly recommend giving LightSteam a try.
