Small cash loans to help cover the weekend’s expenses.
A loan to bridge the weekend gap
Sometimes an unexpected bill or expense can wipe out our weekend plans in an instant. That’s why a weekend loan can help bridge the gap between the weekend and pay day. Weekend loans are short-term finance options allowing you to borrow from $2,050 to $5,000 and have the money transferred into your account before the weekend starts. People have used weekend loans to pay for concert tickets, a quick getaway, or unexpected and urgent expenses while avoiding big fees on cash advances or credit card purchases.

Frequently asked questions on cash loans
Your guide to weekend cash loans
Should I use cash advance from my credit card?
If you have a credit card, you have an option to take out a cash advance from participating ATMs. However, cash advances can end up costing you more long-term. A cash advance will usually attract a significant cash advance fee; will not have interest free days, and have its own higher than normal interest rate – sometimes over 25% p.a. If you do not pay off the entire cash advance immediately, it can lead to more interest owing over time. A weekend loan is a set amount with a fixed term, so every payment you make guarantees you are closer to a zero balance.
What can I use a weekend loan for?
Weekend cash loans are often used when your finances have been tied up with unexpected bills or urgent purchases such as car repair, appliance replacement, or medical bills, leaving you without funds for enjoying the weekend. Thanks to the New Payment Platform, customers can now get cash transferred into their bank account immediately instead of waiting one to two business days like traditional bank transfers. People often take out a weekend loan to buy last-minute concert tickets, accommodation, travel, or taking the family out to an adventure park or special occasion. It’s up to you and your needs.
How long do I have to pay off a weekend loan?
Weekend loans are small cash loans and have flexible payment terms ranging from a 16 days all the way up to two years. For smaller amounts, you may choose to pay back your weekend loan in as little as a couple of weeks or months as your regular income comes in. For higher amounts over $1,000, you may wish to select longer periods up to 24 months. Remember: longer loan terms mean paying more in interest. Be sure to select a loan term that suits your financial needs.
