How do I get a loan from Uplift?
Select "Uplift Pay Monthly" as your payment method in the checkout process. The application in the checkout process is quick and easy. In order to apply for a loan, you must be 18 years or older, provide a valid U.S. address, phone number, full name, email address, date of birth, and the last four digits of your social security number.
Is there interest or fees associated with Uplift Pay Monthly loans?
Uplift offers interest rates as low as 4.99% (9.01 APR) – the industry’s lowest. Uplift charges a 2% origination fee. In the event of a late payment, Uplift will charge a $15 late fee along with reporting negative loan activity to the credit reporting agencies.
Do I have a credit limit with Uplift?
Unlike a credit card, the Uplift Pay Monthly option is not a revolving line of credit. Each loan through Uplift is independent and your balance decreases as you make payments. You may have up to two distinct loans. Each application of credit is evaluated based upon your credit risk at the time of application.
CBW is the Kansas-chartered bank that is the lender for all loans obtained through Uplift.
Does Uplift perform a credit check?
Yes, after obtaining your consent, there is a 'soft' credit check to verify your identity and determine your eligibility for financing. Regardless of the evaluation of your application, this 'soft' credit check will not affect your credit score. Any personal information received during the credit check is secure. Uplift offers the industry’s highest level of data security.

Do I have an assigned seat on my flights?
Southwest Airlines does not have assigned seats, so you can choose your seat when you board the plane. You will be assigned a boarding position based on your check-in time. The earlier you check-in, within 24 hours of your flight, the earlier you get to board.
How do I know my reservation is confirmed?
Your reservation is confirmed if a confirmation number appears at the top of the reservation confirmation screen, after you click complete booking. It may take several minutes for the reservation confirmation screen to appear. While processing, do not stop the transaction or hit the back button as that may result in multiple charges on your credit card. After you confirm the reservation, you will automatically receive an e-mail confirmation.
How can I get a copy of my reservation confirmation or itinerary?
