Your Money. Your Choice.

AmeriCash Loans was founded in 1997 in Des Plaines, Illinois on the main street across from the train station in a small office above what would become our first cash loan store location.

Within five years of opening our doors, we had expanded into 28 total locations throughout the metropolitan Chicago area and Illinois. With such incredible growth we wanted to share our success with our customers and launched our Refer-A-Friend program giving you a chance to earn while sharing your great experience being a customer of AmeriCash Loans with your friends and family.

We saw continued success, thanks to our great customers, over the next few years allowing us to expand our store locations into Wisconsin first in 2004, closely followed by Missouri in 2005 and South Carolina in 2007.

AmeriCash Loans celebrated our 10 year anniversary and refocused on providing the best product to help our customers by discontinuing offering cash advances and instead focused on expanding our installment loan product.

AmeriCash Loans and its affiliates are now leading providers of alternative consumer financial services. We offer short-term financial products through our nearly 60 brick-and-mortar locations in Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Oklahoma and South Carolina and, where applicable, our online application process. Our short-term lending product portfolio is comprised of: installment loans, signature loans, and other related financial services.

Our promise is to build a lasting relationship with each of you, our customers. We value your business and are committed to providing a superior customer service experience. The AmeriCash Loans philosophy is to make every effort to extend a loan to our customers, whenever possible.

As a company, we strive to provide a professional and comfortable lending environment whether in-store or online. Our goal is to ensure that each customer experience is a memorable, respectful one that addresses each individual’s specific financial needs.

We encourage a free flowing exchange of information and ask that if anyone feels that we failed to do our best to provide a loan that they email us at or call 888.907.4227 to discuss their unique situation.
