What is a weekend loan?
A weekend loan is essentially another name for a cash loan. The name comes from its purpose; you may need a weekend loan to go on a weekend getaway or spend your weekend doing some retail therapy.
Whatever you might need a weekend loan for, the premise remains the same as many other types of small loans. That is, you borrow money and pay it back over an agreed term. At Sunshine Loans, our weekend cash loans generally run for 16 weeks.
Weekend Loans for the employed
Weekend loans for the employed are available if you are able to show a weekly minimum income of $600 per week or $1200 a fortnight. This can be a combination of government benefits and wages. As a responsible lender, Sunshine Loans assesses each individual's unique circumstances in order to determine whether a loan is right for them.
Weekend Loans for Bad Credit
Having bad credit doesn't necessarily bar you from a weekend cash loan. We assess every applicant individually and understand that past money problems don't set your future in stone. In fact, changing your borrowing and spending habits today can make a big difference in the long run.

As the rainy-day loan experts, we understand that not everybody has an emergency fund in place – and sometimes in life, when it rains, it pours! We know that sometimes you need a little extra help, but we don't take advantage of the situation either. We are committed to responsible lending practices, and we have a swift application process that should take you minutes to fill out.
Best of all, once approved and contract signed, we can get money into your account instantly.
How long does it take to receive approval?
Most of the time, you will be approved and receive money on the day you apply for your weekend loan. You'll just need to get your loan in during business hours, so the earlier you apply in the day, the better.
Do you carry out credit checks?
As responsible lenders, we do assess your capacity to pay back the loan. We can do that from your bank statement and do not generally need to do a credit check.
