Fantastic experience

The application process was so quick and easy. There were no fees up front, and our interest rate is quite reasonable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pepper Money to my family and friends if they need a personal loan. We finally get to pay off our wedding. Woohoo!

Janette, Sydney
My car basically went boom!

I applied for a loan through Pepper early in the morning, by the time I'd found a car that I liked they'd already conditionally approved me. By the end of the day, it was all settled. Can't recommend Pepper Money enough - their speed and customer service is second to none.

Robert, South East Queensland
Thanks for making it happen!

Very professional, convenient, easy, quick and friendly staff. I tried with other financial institutions but couldn’t get it due to credit rating. I was disappointed, so finally I tried personal loan with Pepper Money I thought I wouldn’t get it. But I got it approved, I couldn’t believe it. Highly recommended.

Khalid B
Quick and easy!

I found the whole online process very easy and quick with great communication along the way. I am satisfied with the rate, however the key aspect for me was having no exit fees. I intend to pay the loan off quickly, so this was an important consideration. In summary, very impressed!

Darren, SA
No idea how grateful I am

I checked the reviews and they were amazing. I applied on Friday for a funeral and received acceptance on Monday morning. The rate is great and I just cant believe how quick I received a response. The most stressing time of my life and Pepper came around.

Telia, Queensland
Quick, easy, and great communication

Pepper Money helped me consolidate my debts into one loan. The process was so easy, I was actually shocked how quick it was. Everything was done online and I found it to be the best experience compared to other loans. If I ever need a loan in the future, I’d be applying to Pepper Money again.

Fezzy, ACT
Super loan company to deal with

Couldn't have been a smoother process. Super quick and easy, staff very efficient and easy to deal with. Loan approved and finalized within 2 days as promised. Great Loan rates too!
