How often can I get a Payday loan?
There is no limit to the number of Payday loans allowed but you cannot have more than one loan at any time. A Payday loan is meant as a short term cash solution. If you are using Payday loans on a frequent basis you should inquire about a personal loan. A personal loan may be better suited to your needs and comes with more competitive rates.
Can I postpone or “roll-over” my Payday loan?
No. A Payday loan is paid back in full on or before your next pay day/due date.
Will you really come meet me to do the loan?
Yes. We have built our business by delivering excellent customer service. From experience we know how much time can be spent getting to a lender and waiting at the lenders location. We prefer to work on your schedule. You can come to one of our locations or we can meet you anywhere in or around the Calgary and Edmonton areas. We make the process both quick and friendly.
Will a good history as a Payday loan customer help if I want an auto or personal loan with Blue Copper Capital in the future?
Absolutely. Many of our customers start out with a small loan and after establishing a history are able to move into term loans, auto loans, consolidation loans, etc. We are a business built from personal relationships and review every application individually. A good Payday loan history assists us in making an informed decision when/if the time comes for a larger more long term lending solution.
