    Is it possible to do this? I am talking, just the one month, I need £150 only, because the way my pay works out, I won't get paid for 3 weeks yet, and I don't have the money to pay the rent in two days time. I will be getting a massive paycheck though on my next payday due to extra hours, so would be able to pay it off straight away.

    Go for it and if they don't accept card just go to a cash machine and withdraw the money using the credit card and pay with the cash, just be careful as there are extra fees for doing this.

    If the landlord accepts credit cards then sure go for it, i'd dissagree with tehfrances advice on withdrawing the cash though from a credit card as it counts as a 'cash advance' not just a standard charge and youll be charged for it and immediatly start paying interest on it.
    Im assuming since youre a student though you should have an overdraft facility in place so could you use that if you havent maxed it out? failing that id ask family/friends for a loan
