The process refinancing a loan involves taking out a new loan to pay off the debt of the existing loan. People may choose to refinance an existing loan for a number of reasons – most often to get a lower interest rate.
With a lower interest rate, you could get a lower monthly payment or keep your monthly payment the same and shorten the repayment term to pay off the debt faster. During VacationLand Federal Credit Union's Loan Refinance Special, you may be able to refinance a loan you presently have with another financial institution.
To qualify for this refinance special, you must have an existing loan balance of $5,000 or more1. Eligible loan types include:
- Recreational vehicle
- Personal watercraft
And just for making the switch, we will waive the loan processing fees (a $191 savings) and give you a $250 Visa® gift card at closing2!
NerdWallet.com offers some points to consider when it comes to refinancing a personal loan, including:
- Pre-qualify the new personal loan to see how the new terms compare to your existing loan.
- Consider all costs associated with the new loan. (VLFCU is prepared to help with those!)
- Make sure you use the new loan to pay off your current loan.
- Start making payments toward the new loan by setting up automatic payments from your checking account.
TheBalance.com is another good online resource that can help you determine if refinancing will actually save you money or just amount to a breakeven situation.
