Frequently Asked Questions

Below you can find answers to general questions about applying for, receiving and repaying a short-term loan from Target Cash Now. If you have more specific questions, please contact our Customer Care Agents.

A short-term installment loan has a fixed interest rate and usually does not involve collateral to secure the loan. Payment dates and amounts are detailed in the loan agreement and the term of the loan is typically a matter of weeks or months. Amounts range from several hundred to thousands of dollars.

The three main differences between short-term installment loans and payday loans are the number of payments, the amount of time you have to repay the loan, and the amount you can borrow. Payday loans are typically repaid in one lump sum that’s due by your next pay day. They typically max out around $500. Short-term installment loans can be repaid over a period of weeks or months and some borrowers qualify for loans of several thousand dollars.

It’s likely that you will qualify for a TCN loan if you meet the requirements listed below:

To exercise your Right to Cancel, you have until 2:00 p.m. MST the second business day after your “Disbursement Date” to begin the process of returning the funds interest-free. Keep in mind that your Disbursement Date is the date funds were transferred to your financial institution. This may not be the same date your bank makes those funds available to you, so please call us at 800-346-9348 as soon as possible if you want to cancel your loan. If you miss the Right to Cancel deadline, you can still pay off your loan early without penalties and pay only the interest you’ve accrued up to your pay-off date.
