Financial balance is in your future

Step into the New Year with courage, strength and stability—knowing that you're responsibly taking control of your debt once and for all. Stop the endless cycle of charging up high-interest credit cards by consolidating that debt into one lump sum with one fixed monthly payment with a Credit Union of New Jersey Lifestyle Loan. Our loans allow you to borrow up to $25,000 and pay it back at a low, fixed rate with monthly payments you can manage and afford.

A smarter way to stability

Sure. When used wisely, credit cards can offer points and rewards, but they also carry interest rates as high as 23% or more. These high interest rates can make your balance skyrocket even if you're not using the card, and especially if you are only making minimum payments. In fact, you may end up in a situation where you never pay off those balances. That’s a nightmare that is easier to avoid than you think.

Our Lifestyle Loan allows you to tackle debt or access funds when you need them with a fixed rate as low as 6.24% APR². We also give you 90 days¹ before you need to make your first payment to enjoy the calmness you deserve.

Find your footing through financial balance this year.

Why is a Lifestyle Loan better than just using my credit cards?

Credit cards are extremely tempting because they are so easy to use—emphasis on the word “use.” Because your credit limits are revolving, as soon as you pay down the balance, the available credit you have is also replenished by that amount. So, the temptation to hop on that hamster wheel and just keep using your credit cards without ever once paying them off is all too real. When you consider that the average credit card interest rate is 19.02% APR⁴, you end up paying thousands (and we do mean thousands) of dollars in interest without ever making forward progress.

With a Lifestyle Loan, you borrow a specific amount over a specific term. But, you make no payments whatsoever for 90 days¹.

Once you do start making payments, you pay one set amount each month until that last payment when your loan balance becomes zero, and the loan is paid in full. Now, that is a great feeling, way better than the hamster wheel of paying credit cards down a little only to charge them back up after a few months.
