It’s even worse for those who have poor credit. OneBlinc is here to help.”

“The pandemic highlighted the tight financial situation Americans face. At OneBlinc we get it. When the pandemic broke out, we shifted gears in our expansion plans into other markets, to launch in record time, the products we knew would help the most,” commented Torelli.

Besides the free (no fee, no interest) salary advances, OneBlinc rolled out its rewards platform, OneClub, to offer loyal customers instant rewards, the possibility to skip loan payments and access to a dedicated customer relationship team. In May, for example, OneBlinc surprised its loyal customers by paying their Netflix monthly subscription, to make the lockdown a bit less stressful.

“We believe in building long-term relationships with our customers through human interactions. When our customers call, they speak to a customer relationship manager who advises them on how to get a better grip on their finances. Our goal is to help those who are in need financially by offering an alternative to payday lenders who are charging more than 300 percent interest on their loans.” concluded Torelli.
