    ok, some im an impatient extreme biker mofo who can't wait an extra week to buy his 3rd bike (long story).

    anyways, so basiiiiically, I need to get an extra 40 quid or so this week, with the intention of paying it back literally 6 or 7 days later with my weekly paycheck (summer job innit).

    it's a bit cheeky of me to borrow off friends or my employer, so would a planned overdraft with the bank or something be the best way to go?

    thanks for any help

    Have you got a student account, will the overdraft be interest free? As long as you are going to pay it back and it a small amount it should be ok. Just be aware of the interest you may be charged on it.

    for such a small amount you will have to pay a pittance on interest. i'm £1800 into an overdraft and last time still only had to pay £13 interest so I shouldn't imagine you'd have to pay much, I'd say go for it!
