“There are many ways to pay a loan off early without putting too much stress on your bank account. For example, you can round your monthly payment up to the nearest hundred or make an extra payment every year. But the strategy that can save you the most money is to save up until you have enough to pay the principal balance in full.

Before picking a plan to pay a loan off early, though, you should talk to your lender to make sure there is no prepayment penalty.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
