About Save My Bacon

save my bacon loanWhen you’re at the end of the month and run into an emergency, it can seem like you’ve got a few options other than to ask friends or family. However, there’s always a chance that even that won’t work out. In such a situation, it’s best to opt for a payday loan from companies or lenders like Save My Bacon.

Most non-bank companies offer small amounts as loans, which is just about enough to help borrowers get by the rest of the month. The benefit of these services is that they don’t check your credit, which shortens the loan approval process.

Save My Bacon is a reliable payday loan service in New Zealand. It allows Kiwis to get cash without delay, even with a low credit score. They evaluate the applicant’s entire financial history and not just their credit score.

One of the best features of Save My Bacon payday loans is that you can only borrow a certain amount in proportion to your salary. While it may not be very convenient for some, it helps Kiwis borrow more than they can afford to pay back comfortably.

How to Apply for a Save My Bacon Payday Loan

It’s easy to apply. To qualify, you have to meet certain requirements, like:

  • having an active bank account;
  • valid email account;
  • being a New Zealand citizen;
  • having an active mobile phone, among other things.

Simply go to their website, select which loan you want to apply for, and click ‘Apply Now’. You can calculate your loan (Mini or KickStart) by filling in some information. This way, you’re fully aware of how much fees and interest you’ll be paying and how many payments you have to make. 

Enter details like

  • How often you’re paid (weekly, fortnightly, or monthly);
  • Your salary after tax;
  • Your next payday;
  • A promo code (if you have one);
  • Enter how much you need (you will only be able to select as much as a certain amount, which is determined based on your salary);
  • How many repayments you want to make (in most situations, it enters a valid number for you, based on the loan amount).
