Making Financing a SNAP!


Hey folks! I wanted to let people know about Snap!, one of the finance companies we work with. We’ve enjoyed the relationship with Snap! and so have some of our customers. We wanted to let people know who might be driving dangerously due to a tough economy– gliding on bald tires, stepping on squealing brakes, or other horror stories of the road– that you have responsible, safe options here at PALS Ocala, even if your credit history isn’t very good.


PALS has used Snap! for three years now.  If a customer has a broken car and can’t afford the repair, we recommend Snap! to them!  If you have bad credit (or no credit), a Snap! Lease can get your car back on the road. Our clients apply on their phone and they usually receive a decision within minutes.  Snap! is very aggressive with approvals.  This program rocks, letting good, hard-working people in need of a break get approved in seconds for loans up to $3000! 


Snap! offers flexible payments in a 12-Month agreement. The 100-Day Cash Payoff option can save you money by resolving what you owe early. Applicants must be a minimum of 18 years old, earn at least $1000/month, and have an active checking account to qualify. Snap! doesn’t report your payment activities to the major credit bureaus, so unfortunately, it doesn’t help build credit– but it also won’t hurt your existing credit if you struggle through your loan payoff.



This month, we’d like to remind you of our partnership with the Public Education System of Marion County, Florida. They’re doing a wonderful job of raising fine Ocalians, but they need help, resources, and volunteerism. Please give whatever resourced you have to spare!
