It only takes a few minutes to apply for a personal loan. Before you start, please look at the What you should know before you apply section below.
To apply for an M&S Personal Loan you have to be a UK resident aged 30 or over or a homeowner.
Interest will be charged throughout the full loan term, including the optional deferred period.
When we check your details with a credit reference agency, a search/enquiry is registered to say that you've applied for credit today. As part of our checks, we link your name with individuals associated with you financially, and any previous names you've provided. The credit reference agencies will record details of your application which will form part of your credit history whether or not you proceed, and if you make several applications for credit within a short period of time, this may temporarily affect your ability to obtain credit.
We'll also check your details with a fraud prevention agency to prevent fraud and money laundering. If you've provided false or inaccurate information (and fraud is identified) we'll pass your details to fraud prevention agencies. If you want, we can explain how your information held by fraud prevention and credit reference agencies may be used.
Credit is subject to status. The rate we offer will depend on our assessment of your circumstances.
When borrowing with an M&S Personal Loan you should consider your ability to maintain the monthly repayments should your circumstances change.
M&S Bank does not currently sell payment protection insurance to protect you in the event of unemployment, sickness or accident. However, there are products in the market that will do this and insurers who sell this cover.
Customers who already have a policy with M&S can still claim – please call us on 0845 900 0900 or contact us online for a claim form. Calls may be recorded.
You can find useful information on the Money Advice Service website including information about payment protection insurance.
