    On their website, it says that you can use your loan funds for whatever you wanted. If I wanted a small loan, say $1000, can I keep that in my checking account and use it for the payments on a 12 month loan? It says that there are no prepayment penalties.

    If your only purpose is building credit, why would you keep it in your checking account?

    You can use 75% of it to buy CD's, and deposit the rest in a Money Market account. That way you'd effectively pay a much lower interest on your loan.

    You can even purchase ING's own CD's so that your effective interest rate on your loan would be (7.5%-4%=3.5%)

    It's definitely a bargain. The only questions are: Do they report to all 3 bureaus and how lenient are their credit requirements.
