Success Stories

Real people getting Out of Debt and On with Life!

April 19, 2024

Our customer stories say it all. Life can be unpredictable sometimes. But when life happens and debt follows, we're here to lend a hand, supporting Kiwis who are committed to getting out of debt.  

Money Sweetspot is not your average debt consolidation loan finance company. Our goal is to lose customers, as this means we have helped one more family regain control of their finances, are out of debt, and can now get on with their lives. And we can help another family.  

We do this by bundling $2,000 to $40,000 of your debts into one financial reset loan, at an interest rate that may be lower than you're currently paying and empower you with articles, tips and features to help you learn more about money, savings, and even investing. The best part is, you earn Sweetspot Points by reading and upskilling which can be redeemed as additional amounts off your loan or added to your savings.

We also reward customers for paying on time and avoiding further debt by giving them $100 each year to donate to their favourite charity via our partners at the Good Registry. This means your commitment and action to your financial reset helps you and helps causes you care about.

Here are some real stories of resilience and financial transformation from everyday Kiwis that we've supported on their debt detox journey.
