More information on loans from Sunny
Perhaps your car has broken down, your washing machine has given up the ghost, or an unexpected bill just landed on your doormat. Whatever the case, when you need money today you don’t want to have to wait for it.
Our team are on hand to offer an instant decision on your loan application, helping you cover that emergency expense the very same day. Our emergency loans can be an ideal solution to a short-term problem, but are best saved as a last resort method of obtaining the funds you need.
Before applying for any short-term loan it’s a good idea to not only research the lenders available but to find out if you can find the money elsewhere first, for example using savings, revising your budget to accommodate the cost, or borrowing from a trusted family member or friend.
In an emergency and when you’re out of options to cover the cost, a loan from Sunny can help. Our lack of fees and charges make borrowing that little bit simpler and mean you have less to worry about.
Ways to get money now
As well as a short-term loan, there are a range of ways to get your hands on cash fast, when you need it. These include:
- Selling unwanted items – Sell an old bike or a TV you no longer use for some quick cash. You can use a site such as eBay or Facebook Marketplace when you need money fast.
- Using a cash for gold shop – You can exchange valuable jewellery and gold items for cash that you can then use for whatever emergency expense you’re currently dealing with. You won’t be able to get your items back, though, so make sure nothing you exchange has any sentimental value!
- Take some of your wardrobe to a cash for clothes store – Need to declutter your wardrobe? Take whatever you don’t want to a “cash for clothes” store, where they will give you a certain amount of money per kg.
- Sign up and complete online surveys – There are services out there that pay you for your time. You’ll need to fill in a pretty large number of surveys to make a lot, but it’s an easy way of making a little extra money. Find a list of sites that offer this here.
