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, such as a payday loan. That is, you borrow money and pay it back over an agreed term. At Sunshine Loans, our weekend cash loans generally run for 9 weeks.
Weekend Loans for the Unemployed
Weekend loans for the unemployed are available if you are able to show a weekly income of $300 minimum. 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.
Weekend Loans for Centrelink Customers
Weekend loans for Centrelink customers are available, so long as you can show us that you are earning a minimum of $300 a week in both Centrelink benefits and wages.
How much can I borrow?
We offer small loans of up to $2,000 for whatever your weekend involves. Whether you need a weekend cash loan for a weekend away with the family, or you need to buy a new refrigerator because your old one suddenly died, our loans suit a wide range of purposes.
Weekend Loan Costs and Eligibility
Our weekend loans come with simple, flat fees that won't trip you up. We ask for an establishment fee of 20% of the amount borrowed, plus a monthly loan fee of 4% of the amount borrowed.

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, paperless/faxless application process that should take you 5 minutes (tops!) to fill out.
Best of all, we can get money into your account on the same day you apply.
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. Sometimes banking processes mean that you'll see your money the next day.
Do you carry out credit checks?
As responsible lenders, we do assess your credit score when you apply for a loan with us. But don't worry – a bad score doesn't necessarily mean you will be turned away. We assess every individual's unique situation when it comes to a weekend payday loan.
