When you take out a cash advance in Colorado, you are signing a long-term agreement. That’s different from other states where cash advance loans are supposed to be paid off when you get your next paycheck, but often get extended. In Colorado, the minimum loan term is six months. During that time, your financed loan is never allowed to exceed $500. The idea is that you’ll end up paying less over the course of six months than you would with an APR-heavy, 14-day loan that was extended for six months. An important thing to remember about Colorado cash advances, though, is that you don’t have to take the entire six months to pay them off. That minimum loan term is for your protection. If you can pay the loan off sooner, then you should.
Because the minimum loan term is six months, phrases like “finance charge for a 14-day $100 loan” are not applicable. That’s a good thing if you end up taking six months to pay off the loan. With a traditional cash advance, you would be hit with substantial rollover fees during that same period of time. In Colorado, you don’t pay extension or rollover fees for six whole months. What you will pay is 20-percent in fees for up to a $300 loan. The fees go up if you need more than that amount. If you’re borrowing $301-$500, you’ll pay the 20-percent, plus an extra 7.5-percent on however much over the $300 mark you borrowed. There are a few other fees you should be aware of, too. The lender can charge you another 45-percent interest rate per annum. After you’ve had the loan for 30 days, the lender can charge you a monthly maintenance fee of up to $7.50 for every $100 loaned, up to $30 a month.
