Loans Frequently Asked Questions
If you're an existing loans customer and would like an early settlement quote, please contact us by:
No problem. You'll need to give us at least 10 business days before your next payment is due – if you don’t it won’t action until the following payment.
You can change your payment date by sending us a secure message:
- Log in to your online banking account. Not already registered? Register here
- Select 'Account Details' for your loan account
- Choose 'Change my payment date' from the list on the right hand side of the screen, or at the bottom of the page if you’re using a mobile phone. This will open a secure message.
- Tell us the date you’d like to change to (between 1st and 28th of each month).
Alternatively give us a call.
If you make more than your monthly payments, we'll automatically use the overpayment to reduce the term of your loan (unless you are in arrears). If you would prefer to keep the term the same and reduce your monthly repayments going forward, you'll need to call us before you make the overpayment.
Or you can contact us and we’ll let you know what your outstanding balance is.
If you want to settle your loan in full please refer to How do I make an early repayment with Sainsbury’s Bank? above.
Once you've made your first repayment you can change your repayment date. Make sure to get in touch at least 10 working days before your next payment is due so that we can make this change in time.
You can send us a message through online banking or contact us to request this change.
