About Sainsbury’s Bank

Life comes with financial burdens. Some are necessary, like a car loan, whereas others are more of a bit of indulgence, like store cards for example.

These debts can easily pile up, sometimes without you even noticing. One minute everything’s fine and the next, you’re struggling to keep up with your payments. This is where we step in.

What it means to consolidate your debt

A debt consolidation loan effectively allows you to take all or a large portion of your existing debts and group them into a single loan. It’s an attractive route to take because it makes it possible for you to pay off multiple loans all at once. With all your debts in one place, keeping up with every payment becomes easier.

Improve your credit rating

By extension, tidying up your finances and making payments on all your debts on time can actually improve your credit rating over time, opening you up to more lenders in the future.

Sainsbury’s Bank Services

We pride ourselves on always being fair when it comes to our customers.

So it makes sense that we carry this philosophy to how we treat every loan application.

Borrowing amount

You can borrow personal loans of £1,000 to £40,000 over a period of 1- 7 years. If you already have a personal loan with us, you could top up your loan and borrow more. Because this is essentially a new application, you getting the loan will be subject to our assessment of you.

A tailor-made loan

Given that we understand that your financial needs may change, we will do everything that we reasonably can to ensure that we can help you when you really need it.

Pay off your existing debt with a Sainsbury’s Bank loan

When topping up, you have two options: first, you can choose to top up on your original bad credit loan and pay it off over a longer-term.

Or you could opt to take out a second loan with its own interest rate which will run concurrently with your first loan at its own interest rate.
