Why Brigit is Better for Students than Loan Apps Out There

When most of us think back to our years as a college student, we think of the good times. Making new friends, laughing for hours, free campus food, staying out till 4am, etc. We also remember the times that weren’t so fun. Like living in the library, stress-studying, stress-eating from stress-studying, and maybe how we never seemed to have enough money to pay for things.

While college tuition has always been expensive, the prices just seem to get steeper and steeper each year. With tuition at an all-time high, many students are searching for ways they can borrow money from the convenience of their mobile devices. While loan apps and other borrow money apps might help some find what they’re looking for, there’s no guarantee that the process will be quick, if the money would come right away, or if a credit score would be required in the process.

For the 21-year-old college student, Jay, getting a cash advance with a fast approval process and no credit check was exactly what he was looking for. Luckily, he found Brigit. After signing up and getting approved instantly, he was able to get the money he needed to make it to his next payday, all without paying an extra fee to do so.

Jay’s Story:

I’m a 21-year-old college student living in California, studying to be an accountant.  When not in class or at my desk, I am engaged with my part-time jobs as a legal assistant at a law firm and the other, as an accountant


How has Brigit helped you compared to other loan apps?

I needed to cover expenses before my next paycheck. However, most of the options I looked into were taking days to process my application. Then I found Brigit. Unlike others that take two days to respond, they took two hours. The sign-up process was quick and smooth. It took less than 5 minutes to get approved. I received money the day I asked for it. As a college student, I didn’t have many resources to turn to, but Brigit gave me a chance. The funds helped me cover my daily expenses until my next paycheck came in. I’m a huge Brigit fan now. The customer service is fantastic and caring.

“Brigit didn’t hesitate to give me a chance.”

What does financial stability mean to you?

Financial stability to a college student is simply being able to focus on academics. I shouldn’t need to worry about rent or groceries.


Making it to your next payday can be especially hard for students. Brigit’s 60-second signup and approval process can make getting money fast and painless compared to loan apps. With no credit checks required, no interest, and no hidden fees, our app is made to be transparent for anyone looking for a little extra cash to help pay for those day-to-day bills.
