"LendKey is a unique student loan marketplace platform, in that they leverage a marketplace of community lenders, such as local banks and credit unions, to offer student loans. As a result, LendKey typically has some of the lowest student loan refinancing rates available to borrowers looking to refinance."
I don't feel as pressured
LendKey gave me the ability to do more with my savings. I was able to get my own apartment and have a more flexible payment plan. The extra money has been a huge help for me.
A sense of security
I will save around $20,000 in interest by refinancing. My monthly obligation is $300 less than prior to refinancing! By reducing my monthly bill, I was able to pay down my other loans, and save for emergencies.

Not all applicants qualify for the lowest rate. Rates for Wells Fargo, SoFi, and CommonBond

Lowest Variable Rate
(15 year term)1
1. Subject to floor rate. The rate reduction will be removed and the rate will be increased by 0.25% upon any cancellation or failed collection attempt of the automatic payment and will be suspended during any period of deferment or forbearance. As a result, during the forbearance or suspension period, and/or if the automatic payment is canceled, any increase will take the form of higher payments.
2. Most of our lenders don't charge borrowers origination fees. In order to qualify, the borrower, alone, must meet the lender's credit criteria, and the borrower's loan account must be and remain current up until the lender's decision to release the cosigner has been made.
3. IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE REFINANCING OF YOUR FEDERAL STUDENT LOANS: Please be aware that you may potentially lose certain benefits associated with your federal student loans by refinancing such federal loans with a private student loan consolidation. These benefits may include favorable repayment options, loan and fixed interest rates, extended loan terms, and loan forgiveness. We strongly advise that you seek professional advice and examine our benefits and options before refinancing your federal loans. It is important to us that you are comfortable with potentially forfeiting benefits that may not be offered through our consolidation loan.
