“Still waiting for my money”

I was approved for a loan and was told the money would be in my account at 10am. The time came and went, no money. Then a message said i would get my money at 1pm. The time came and went, still no money. Another message said the money would go in my account no later that 22.00 on 12/11. Still no money. The loan agreement has been signed, the documents are all there, they are waiting for my first installment but, despite a message saying the money went in my account at 22.59 on 12/11, i am still… Read Full Review

Never taken out a short term loan before and shopped around to find one. I feel very confident in using PiggyBank as their website states they are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. I found PiggyBank's credit agreement easy to understand, their customer service first class and payout is very quick. Love their easy to navigate website. Staff are very helpful and no long telephone queues unlike some other companies… Read Full Review

I don't usually need extra money. Lots of things have mounted and thankfully getting this piggy loan was actually a lot less painfull than I thought. At first I thought omg why are you asking me for this! Then, I got the loan and the money arrived, I thought pretty quickly. What I really like is probably different to other people. This change in my life has made me look at my money better. I suppose this was my poke. another payday loan. I got to piggy through another site, i checked everything… Read Full Review

Piggy-Bank helped me when I really needed them. My car broke down and needed money fast. The application process to pay out was fast and efficient and I was pleased to know I could book my car in on the same day I applied and now it's back on the road. I would definitely recommend them to a friend and I am safe in the knowledge that should I need a short term loan in the future, Piggy-Bank will be top of my list!… Read Full Review

I needed a loan in a hurry when I needed to see an emergency dentist I knew that it would cost me but had a pittance in my bank account. I applied online at home and was accepted. I received the money shortly after and was able to get my cracked tooth removed promptly saving me a lot of pain. They even called me before my payment was due to make sure everything was okay which was a lovely touch. Will use PiggyBank again if I have any further emergencies!… Read Full Review

I have had to use Piggybank on three occasions over the past year. Something unfortunately came up, like it normally does nowadays, and I needed funds fast. The application process was simple and easy to follow and the instalment product meant I could spread my payments over a longer period of time. This helped me manage my finances a lot better and not feel like I was going to struggle. Would definitely recommend to a friend for how easy it was to apply and would say if you're worried about… Read Full Review

Took a loan with this company and re-loaned many times, on their website it states they will help if you fall into unexpected financial difficulty - I would advise otherwise, other companies available and treat customers better. Bad experience, look elsewhere… Read Full Review

“Quick to make a decision, slow to pay”

Written on: 24/11/2015 by marc9sqn (1 review written)

Visit www.Piggy-Bank.co.uk

Everything done over email with no number to contact anyone. Fairly quick to make a decision but not as quick as an hour so please don't rely on this if it is a major decider for you then go else where. Other than that like I said cant fault the decision time and also when I emailed the customer service team were quick to respond although what they stated was not true to form unfortunately. Have been approved but still awaiting the funds to clear, hopefully this will happen at some point this… Read Full Review

i don't think anyone wants to use a payday loan. but they are the best of a bad bunch. i couldn't make my payment on time, so i called in, spoke to someone and he froze my interest and gave me a new date to pay. that was very helpful. Wish i didn't need them, but piggybank are okay… Read Full Review
