How to use our loan calculator
Our personal loan calculator is quick and easy to use. We'll need to know:
1. How much you’d like to borrow – you can borrow any amount from £1,000 to £25,000, or up to £40,000 if you’re a Nectar member.
2. How long you'd like to repay your loan – you can repay your loan over five years. Nectar members can choose up to seven years for loans between £7,500 and £40,000.
3. Whether you’re a Nectar member – tick the box that applies to you. If you’re a Nectar member you can access our lowest rates.
4. Your Nectar card number – if you selected yes, enter your Nectar card details.
5. Whether it’s a single or joint application – choose if you are interested in a single or joint application. A joint application is split between two people.
Once you’ve given all this information, you can check your results, which outline what rate you could be offered, what your monthly repayments and total repayable could be, based on the representative example. If you’re happy with the results, you can click Apply Now and start your application today. Any information you’ve provided prior to this point won’t affect your credit score.
There are several things that you can do which could improve your chances of being accepted for a loan. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that none are guaranteed to result in a successful application:
Try to improve your credit score – avoiding making multiple applications for credit (such as credit cards, loans etc.) in a short space of time, paying bills and debt repayments on time and getting on the electoral roll may all help improve your score.
Make a joint application – sometimes a joint application may help prove your financial stability, as your provider looks at both your credit records. However, if either of you miss a repayment, both your credit ratings could be affected.
Check for bad financial ties – if you’re financially connected to someone with bad credit, for example an ex-partner, this could affect your likelihood of being accepted. If this is the case, you can apply for a notice of dissociation, to show lenders that you’re no longer connected to them.
Obtain credit if you have none or bad credit – taking some basic steps toward improving your credit situation may help improve your eligibility chances. This can include doing simple things like opening a bank account, setting up direct debits and keeping up with any repayments.

Frequently asked questions
How is my loan interest rate calculated?
Your loan interest rate is affected by a few factors, including:
Your credit score
How much you want to borrow
The length of your loan term
If you’re a Nectar member
What is a loan APR?
APR stands for annual percentage rate. This displays the interest and extra charges that may be added to the amount you borrow.
How are my loan repayments calculated?
Loan repayments are calculated by dividing the total loan, plus interest, by the number of months that you have to pay it off.
Are any credit checks done when I use a loan calculator?
No, there are no credit checks done when you use a loan calculator. This means that you can use our calculator to see a representative example of what your monthly repayments, total repayable amount, annual interest rate could be – without it leaving a mark on your credit score.
The only checks made are after you submit a loan application, where an initial ‘soft credit check’ is made, as we assess your eligibility for a loan. After that stage, if you are eligible for a loan, a ‘hard credit check’ will occur if you decide to proceed with your application. This is where a full assessment of your financial history is made and this check will appear on your credit record.
What is the maximum loan I can apply for?
The maximum loan you can apply for at Sainsbury’s Bank depends on if you’re a Nectar member or not. If you’re a Nectar member, the maximum loan you can apply for is £40,000 and the minimum is £1,000. If you’re not a Nectar member, you may apply for a loan of any amount between £1,000 and £25,000.
We treat all our customers and their applications on an individual basis. The APR we offer is determined by the details you supply and the loan you are applying for, along with an independent verification of your credit and repayment history.
