I recently found myself in a position needing a short term loan to pay for an unexpected bull. After being declined by several other lenders I stumbled upon piggybank. Their service was quick and simple and I had the loan in my account within two hours of applying. The best thing about piggybank was when I found out my wages were being paid a day late meaning I'd miss my payment. I simply contacted someone over the phone and he was able to move my date for me by two days. This meant that not… Read Full Review

“I would recomend”

I had to borrow quickly cash and saw this one before and thought it is the same as others who take a lot of personal info just to say NO at the end. But I was wrong. No additional documents needed. Money within hour. Only downside is no matter how much you borrow you still need to pay payout fee. So for small amounts it is bit expensive, but other than that GREAT… Read Full Review

“A fun weekend, thanks.”

I managed to get a loan out using Piggy. I had a great weekend and thought I would comment on my experience. It was quick and simple albeit a lengthy form filling process but this was quite similar to other companies I've used. All in all I was happy with the result and knew it was relatively cheap compared to the rest of the market. I paid back 1 day earlier so saved a little. I'd use them again and recommend doing this than going into your overdraft for a long time, cross fingers the next… Read Full Review

i made a few mistakes in the passed with missed payments, so when i went to my bank to ask for an overdraft, they said no. so i searched online and found piggybank loans. the site was simple and nice, but the application form was very long and needed lots of detail for just £100 for 10 days. i was accepted straight away and my money was paid out very quickly. the money was taken from my account at 4am on the date it was supposed to so i didnt have to worry about phoning up to payback. i… Read Full Review

I needed some cash to get me to payday so I applied online with Poggybank. The firm was quite long and asked a lot of questions. I was put into underwriting and had to send over a payslip, which slowed down the process a bit. They called me 3 days before I was due to pay to see if I wanted to pay early and save money, which was good. All in all, I would use again… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/10/2014

I agree. I had been with them for several months and never missed a payment then this time after paying my debt and applying to renew it it comes back declined! When I rang them to find out why all he could say is 'don't know why but if the computer says no its a no'! Now I'm unable to pay my rent this month. To be honest I'm glad they knocked me back as I will no longer have that stupid debt every month.

“Fantastic fast & efficient”

Having never heard of piggy bank and having far less than perfect credit history I was dubious of being referred to piggy bank after being turned down by peachy. I know it's not ideal taking a pay day loan but the process was simple, website easy to navigate on a Sunday afternoon at 1600pm I applied for £200 and the money was in my account at 1657pm no outrages fees for one hour payout just a pay back of £276 for 40 days much more reasonable than most! No calls to employer no embarrassing… Read Full Review

This is the 2nd time I've had to borrow a short term loan, last year I went with pounds to pocket. I had such a bad time with them, that on this occasion I was worried who to go with. I'd seen a friend of mine had liked Piggy Banks Facebook page, and so went to their website. It was so easy to navigate around, I got all the information I needed there and then. I got the money really quickly, and didn't have to pay back anywhere near as much as I did with pounds to pocket. I don't normally… Read Full Review

“Pleasantly Surprised! ”

Visit www.Piggy-Bank.co.uk

I had a few bills to pay this month and not enough money to last me until I got paid, so I searched online for a payday loan and came across Piggy Bank. Having heard a lot of bad things about these type of companies, I was a little dubious but Piggy Bank were brilliant! They actually cared about whether I could afford to pay back the money after I'd paid all of my other bills so not to leave myself short again this month. It's nice to find a responsible finance company for once!… Read Full Review

“Great site, great service and great value”

I found PiggyBank whilst searching online for a payday loan (I needed some quick cash to pay for my car's MOT), I was pleasantly surprised with how easy the application process was and I had my money in no time at all. As for paying it back, that was really easy too - and I didn't get stung for loads of ridiculous charges that you hear about from some payday loan companies. Since taking out my loan, I have referred 3 friends to the site and have done a bit of reading (blog posts etc...) and I… Read Full Review

I needed to borrow some money after my washing machine broke down. Not having any money set aside for emergencies I found Piggybank and got a loan from them for £240 over 7 days, the applicaiton form was quite long but once I filled it in I had the money in my account in less time than they said on the website (1 hour). After getting a new washing machine, my brother gave me cash to pay off the loan to avoid paying interest and I was able to pay back early on the website without having to… Read Full Review

I took out a loan for £150 for 14 days to cover me for a huge phone bill from my holiday I hadn't seen coming (don't get me started!). Although its not exactly cheap, it was better value than the other payday companies that I looked at. They said an hour for payment and it was done in just under which was nice. I liked their site and the pigs were friendly and trust worthy. Although there were a lot of questions to answer to get the loan. So it took me about 10 minutes to answer. I would… Read Full Review
