Credit Basics Vocabulary

Alternative credit A source of credit that may combine elements of open and closed-end credit and usually have higher interest rates and fees than other forms of credit.
Closed-end credit (also known as installment credit) is a loan which you must repay in a specified number of equal monthly payments.
Open-end credit (also known as revolving credit) is extended as a line of credit established in advance, so you do not have to apply for credit each time credit is desired.
Pawn loan A loan based on the value of personal property.
Payday loan A short-term loan that provides immediate cash by securing a borrower's written check or receiving authorization for automatic withdrawal from the borrower's depository institution account.
Refund anticipation loan Short-term cash advance secured by a taxpayer's expected tax refund.
Rent-to-own Tangible items are leased with the condition that the item will be owned by the renter if the term of rent is completed. The cumulative end amount a consumer pays to lease an item is much higher than if the consumer bought the item from the onset.
Title loan The borrower gives the lender his/her automobile title in exchange for a set amount of cash. The lender holds the title until the loan is repaid. If the loan is not repaid as agreed, the lender keeps title to the item.
