As a lending marketplace, LendingTree connects you to personal loan offers from its partner lenders, rather than providing you with a loan directly. Since the loan offers you see will be limited to LendingTree’s network, it may also be worth checking your rates with other lenders.
LendingTree vs. SoFi
As a LendingTree partner, you may see SoFi personal loan offers when you view your rates on the LendingTree Marketplace. However, LendingTree only lets you choose a personal loan amount up to $50,000, while SoFi can offer a loan up to $100,000 when you apply directly.

LendingTree vs. Before
Avant is not listed as a LendingTree partner, so you will need to apply directly to borrow from this lender. It offers fixed rate personal loans between $2,000 and $35,000 with APRs starting around 10%. You can choose repayment terms between 12 and 60 months.

LendingTree vs Upgrade
Like Avant, Upgrade also does not belong to the LendingTree network. This personal lender grants loans between $1,000 and $50,000. You can choose repayment terms between 24 and 84 months and you may have to pay an origination fee. The upgrade may be worth exploring if your credit score is low, as its minimum credit score requirement is 560.
