An email address and a mobile phone number are also prerequisites for borrowing money from Uncle Buck.

PAYMENT:

107 Reviews of Uncle Buck

Uncle Buck are one lender I will definitely use again. I generally try a different lender each time I take out a loan which can sometimes be 3 or 4 times in a year. Usually the last lender I have used is no longer as competitive as they were and so I look around for a better deal. I hope Uncle Buck stays competitive for a bit longer because I found their application process very simple and straightforward and I got my money in less than half an hour of submitting my loan agreement. Thats two good reasons for going back to Uncle Buck and if they remain as competitive as they are at present that will be all 3 of the necessary requirements for the ideal loan.

I always tried to resist using payday loans because I knew it would hit me hard having to repay the loan when I got my pay check at the end of the month. Then I found out about instalment loans which are very similar to payday loans but you can borrow more and have a longer period to repay it. That sounded like a much better option for me and so I tried my first ever instalment loan with Uncle Buck last year. I needed the cash for a weekend away and it was more than I could afford out of one month's salary. The loan worked out really well for me and I was able to repay it over 3 months and didn't really miss the money coming out of my salary each month. Uncle Buck make it just as easy and as straightforward to apply for one of their instalment loans as you would find with a payday loan but they just make the options to repay it much more flexible and that is why I have come back to them again for this loan and will definitely be using them again in the future because I really do prefer this type of loan.

Uncle Buck instalment loans are a much more affordable and hassle free type of loan for me. I used to sometimes have problems making the repayment on a payday loan and often got caught out with late payment fees which made the original loan work out to be much more expensive. Since I've been using instalment loans from Uncle Buck I have never had this problem and in fact I can actually borrow more and still make the repayments without leaving myself short for the rest of the month. This used to happen a lot with payday loans and they kind of defeated the object of the loan but that is not the case with these instalment loans. I will definitely be using Uncle Buck instalment loans from now on and have recommended them to my friends that use regular payday loans because I think they might find more convenient as well.

At least once a year I get caught out with a hen weekend that I just can't really afford to go on but my friends won't take no for an answer and so the only way I can get the money together is with an instalment loan from Uncle Buck. I try not to use loans too often but when I really have no other choice I like that I can just go to Uncle Buck and borrow the amount I need and then repay it easily over the next few months. Most of my close friends are married now so I am hoping the hen weekends ease off because I really feel like I'm getting too old for them now but I am sure I will be able to put an Uncle Buck instalment loan to some other use in the future.

I'd seen the film Uncle Buck dozens of times and i know it ends hapiily so thats what I was hoping from my first Uncle Buck loan and I wasn't disappointed. I only borrowed a small amount to pay for a new outfit for my friends wedding and I had it paid back before the summer so I thought I would try another Uncle Buck loan to pay for this years summers holiday and pay it back the same way so that by the time I am going on the holiday it will already be paid for. I think this way of borrowing money really suits me because I dont think too far ahead and save money. I usually end up scraping the bottom of my purse for money but with Uncle Buck loans I wouldn't have to do that anymore.

I've used Uncle Buck twice now for small instalment loan amounts, nothing major or long term would suit me as my salary fluctuates because it is based on commission to a certain extent. So a large loan over a longer period of more than 6 months would be difficult for me. That's one of the reasons I like using instalment loans like the one I have just got from Uncle Buck. I know for certain the repayments will be affordable and borrowing a few hundred pound every six months or so helps me out much better than a loan for more money over a year or 2 would. I liked the service I got from Uncle Buck with my last loan from them so that's why I have used them again this time.

Most times when I need some extra cash I will use a payday loan and pay it back at the end of the month. That only works for me if I am borrowing small amounts, usually no more than a couple of hundred quid. But if I need to borrow more I have to use instalment loans and I have just got my first instalment loan from Uncle Buck after trying out a couple of other lenders in the past. This loan seems like a good deal and the application process was pretty straightforward. That's one of the things that can put me off using a loan company if they are too complicated and also if my money is going to take longer than 24 hours to get to me. Uncle Buck have passed the test on both those things so there's a good chance I will be using them again.

How did I not discover Uncle Buck instalment loans before now? If it wasn't for my friend telling me about them I would still be using a certain payday loan company that never really helps me out because I can't afford to borrow too much that way. With this instalment loan from Uncle Buck I am going to be able to pay for my holiday this summer which would have been a real struggle otherwise. I was going to just stick it on a credit card but my limit is already reached and I really thought I'd be missing out on a summer break in the sun this year. Now that I have found Uncle Buck I am going to be taking advantage of his instalment loans quite a bit from now on I think!

Will I use Uncle Buck again for an instalment loan? Probably unless they raise their interest rates in the near future. I found the actual process very quick and easy so that was a big plus point for me because anything that requires too much time and attention is a no no for me. Thats one of the reasons I didn't bother going to my own bank for this loan. I also like that I can handle all the details of this loan totally online and have already set up the reminders for the repayments over the next 3 months. If there are any glitches to this nice little set up it might affect my decision the next time I need to apply for a loan but I am hoping this goes as smoothly as it can because there is no reason why it shouldn't as far as I am concerned.

I can't help but think of that big guy in the film Uncle Buck when I talk about this loan and my friends are the same. It must be a generation thing because we grew up with that film. Maybe subconsciously thats why i chose to get this loan through Uncle Buck. We might never know but what I do know is that this instalment loan is very affordable and convenient for me and it beats the usual payday loans that I used to rely on. So I dont think I'll be using payday loans again but I will definitely consider going back to Uncle Buck for another instalment loan. this seems to be a much better way of borrowing money on a short term basis and its less risky than the payday loans that can backfire on you if you miss the repayment even if its just by a few days.

I recently proposed to my girlfriend...
Her answer was yes and I was the happiest man alive! But also quite broke as I had to propose with a nice big engagement ring.
The only problem is the ring was a bit out of my reach and £900 in one go I just could not afford.
I took a personal loan with UncleBuck.
They lent me the money I needed and I'm comfortably paying them back over 6 months.
In installments!
Sure the ring in the end will end up costing me significantly more than if I paid cash, but we all know that borrowing money is expensive...
At least with this company, i know exactly what my installments are each month to the cent and don't get surprises.
Thank you Uncle Buck, without your help I couldn't have got engaged so quickly as I did. You were speedy approving and depositing the cash.

I have borrowed money on a couple of occasions from Uncle Buck over the last few years. Normally between £ 800 and £1000.
This summer I needed a little more as I decided to go on a nice Mediterranean cruise with my wife and child and though we had the cash, I didn't want to dig into our savings, as from experience I know it never goes back.
My wife suggested I take out a loan of £2000 again from uncle Buck, but I was convinced that they did not lend such a high amount.
Most lenders I knew of only gave loans of £1000 maximum, so I expected the same to be the case with this company.
I told my wife we should each apply for £1000 to total the £2000.
It meant a little more work but it possibly had to be that way.
When reading carefully the information that they sent me, I actually realized that they do lend up to £2500, so was delighted to be able to take out just one loan.
Good work Uncle Buck. Its good you go the extra mile.
The installments over 6 months are affordable to us and we had a great holiday stress free.

it's an easy choice for me when looking for an instalment loan recently
as i had heard several people in my local pub talking about Uncle Buck and saying how good they are.

I needed an instalment loan as I didn't want the pressure of a regular payday short term loan.
I did the online application and then spoke to their customer services to make sure I had
filled everything in correctly. They were very helpful and by the time I had put the phone down
they had confirmed the loan was approved and how much my repayments would be.
I was very happy with sum I would be paying back each month as I knew that would be well
within what I could afford to repay without causing me any problems.

I applied for an instalment loan with Uncle Buck to borrow some money to help pay for my daughters wedding.

Its tradition for the bride's parents to cough up as they say. But saying that the grooms parents were very helpful but even for our share it would have worked out hard.
I was happy for my wife and I to make our contribution but I did need a loan to give me a bit of help.

The staff were lovely so it had defo been a good choice and they approved my instalment loan
in no time and before I knewit I was handing over a nice little contribution to the happy couple
and I'm very happy that I was able to help them out.

I am posting this review to say a big thank you for giving me the loan.
I had never taken out one of the sorts of loans before but had thought about it lots of times.

My hubbie was recovering from an operation and I wanted to buy him something special to show how
much I loved him and that's what prompted me to get the loan.

I took an instalment loan on the advice of Uncle Buck as they felt it would be the
best option for me and the repayments over a longer period would not be a problem for me.
I very pleased that I used them for the loan and I am not worried about paying the money back in the specified time.

My friend wanted me to accompany her on a trip to New york to meet her fiance for the first
time before they get married next year. She wanted so very badly for us to meet.
I hadn't had a holiday this year and so I thought it would be nice for me
too i've always wished to spend a month in NY.

I had some spare money but really wanted a bit more to make sure I could contribute my share
when dining out etc. and I also had to pay for a hotel which in New York isnt cheap.

Uncle Buck was able to loan me the money I needed on an instalment loan basis which suited
me very well so once all the application was approved I told my friend the good news and
we are now busy planning our itinerary for our trip to the Big Apple.

My friend at my local tennis club recommended Uncle Buck when I said I needed to borrow
some money to take the wife on a once in a lifetime trip before I retire next year.

All the time I am in regular employment I don't feel worried about taking out loans provided
the repayments are within my earnings capability. When I'm retired the option of this sort
of loan won't be available to me so I was determined to make the most of my loan choices.

they gave me a great instalment loan and I was able to go ahead and book the trip for me and the wife straightaway. So I would just like to say thank you to them.

Uncle buck is a very good loan company. I have used them several times for short term
and instalment loans and they have worked very well for me on each occasion and I think that
is very much down to their responsible attitude when lending money.

We've all been in a situation where what we have isnt enough for what we need and what i say is go to Uncle Buck and they'll sort you out!!

They do all they advertise and more...

They make sure you are not borrowing more than your earnings will allow you to
repay comfortably as they are not in the business of increasing peoples financial worries but
to try and alleviate them instead. I would have no hesitation is recommending them and indeed
I have done so on several occasions.

My wife and I discussed getting a loan to help with the cost of a new kitchen.
We had been living in our house for over twenty years with the same tired looking
kitchen which my wife hated. She always blamed her cooking disasters on the cooker!

Uncle Buck convieniently happened to be advertising on the telly one evening and that is how
we chose them. I have to say they lived up to their advert and gave us a very good loan
that allows us to make monthly repayments over a longer period and we are confident it
won't affect our week to week living standards.

My girlfriends were planning a trip to Marbella and asked me to join them.
We didn't really have the money to afford it and so someone suggested
getting short term payday loans.

I was really upset when I couldn't get the loan with one particular company
but my dad suggested I try another company but go for an instalment loan this time.


Uncle Buck will from now on be my first choice as they were so helpful with the application.
I got the money I needed with an instalment loan and will be making the repayments
over a longer period which is much better for me.

My first Experience with Uncle Buck was easy and simple it was all done online for me. I filled in my details an the computer done the rest! it was that easy.
But this time was different i was looking to borrow more money so i wanted to speak with someone to get advise.

Customer service was so helpful and as i was a returning customer i could apply for more than a new customer with a slightly longer payment plan, there was so many more options available to me and the Rep took the time to get thew everything.

Thanks for making me feel like a valued customer and helping me out yet again!

As this is my second loan with Uncle Buck I was able to borrow more, almost double the maximum amount for first time borrowers. This came in really handy for me as I had just got back from my holiday and had to very high unexpected bills waiting for me. If they hadn't offered me the higher loan amount I would have had to look elsewhere for the extra money and that would have complicated matters for me. Being able to borrow that higher amount felt a bit like a loyalty reward and I am very grateful to Uncle Buck for offering that option to me. So I just want to say thanks to Uncle Buck for saving me a lot of bother.

I was recommend to Uncle Buck and everything i told good about the service turns out to be TRUE!

My application was fast and the decision was in less than 1 hour.
The cash then followed promptly and i could spend as i wished.
Customer service was polite and helpful on the phone.
Not to many prying questions about why i wanted the money and the payment back process was all set up for me.
Everything was arrange so i didn't need to call back.

This has been my first loan with Uncle Buck and now that the final repayment has been made I just wanted to say how satisfied I have been with the overall experience. In particular the help I got from the Customer Services department when I was having some problems with my online application. Not everyone is proficient in computer skills like most of the younger generation seem to be but my difficulties were easily sorted out after a call to their customer services department. I may well use Uncle Buck for another loan and I am sure I will be much more confident with the online application process next time.

I needed £300 when i backed my car in to my neighbors early one Sunday morning.
I had the money in my savings account but this effects the % when i make withdraws.
So i though why not try a pay day loan. Since i was not a lot of money i had a look at my finances online and i could afford to borrow £300 and pay it back and still live comfortable next month.

So i applied and was accepted. Was actually extremely easy.

I didn't need to break my piggy bank and lose out of 1 years worth of interest thanks to Uncle Buck

I like using Uncle Buck for my occasional loans because they never let me borrow more than I can easily pay back. I also like the fact that my repayments come out of my bank account automatically each month so I don't have to worry about forgetting payments and getting late payment fees which has happened to me with other loan companies. When a friend asked me to recommend a loan company to them recently I didn't hesitate to say Uncle Buck and I wouldn't do that with some of the other loan companies I have used in the past.

Since first contacting Uncle buck i did qualify for the loan due to minimum work hours and payment requirements.
I though there is no way i would be accepted for a short term loan. The adviser gave me some great advice and after a few weeks i picked up extra hours at work and applied again with them.

I don't know if i would have been accepted the first time, but i feel i made the right choice taken the adviser advice and meeting all the requirements and not leaving my self financial stuck. They have qualified and understanding staff and i feel my situation is not the same as most i was thrilled in how i was dealt with as a customer.

I was even more Thrilled when i was accepted and the cash was in my bank account to cover my rent.
Thank you

When I told some friends that I had recently taken out a loan with Uncle Buck and that they were a really good loan company for someone like me they said I should post a review to say how satisfied I was with the service I received. So that is what I am doing now. I hope people read this before making their choice and if they get the same deal as me which was the amount of money I needed to borrow and repayments that I could easily afford, then I dont think they will be disappointed. The interest charges on any type of payday loan is always going to be the hardest thing to swallow but how else are these companies supposed to make a profit.

When looking to borrow some Mula i done a few comparison searches. Most of them said more of less the same and the apr rates were pretty similar too.

I went with uncle buck because i done the research and asked around they are pretty reliable as a lender.

I borrowed £500 over 3 months with uncle buck and was happy when they agreed to loan me the money.

When i called and explained my situation over the phone to the adviser, who then took the time to go through the options available to me.
Given the circumstances paying £500 within one month turned out to me a little tricky for me to do.

So agreed upon a 3 month repayment plan. Everything was set up on the same call, so didn't need to call back to chase anyone or make any payments. Everything was made easy.

Customer Service are very understand and accommodated to my needs.

Me and all my friends do it, we get instalment loans to pay for our holiday each Summer. It's the only way we can afford to do it because we never plan ahead and save for them. We just get it into our heads where we want to go and then get a loan to pay for it.

We don't do the daft thing and borrow from payday lenders we just get the instalment loans and pay them back in time before we go off on holiday. That way when we come back we don't have the debt hanging over us.

I'm using Uncle Buck for this particular loan because I used them for a loan last year to get my car fixed and it worked out okay for me then so I thought I'd give them another go and they have worked out another affordable loan for me. That's all I look for in an instalment loan, being able to easily afford the instalments.

I'm 44 years old and to be honest with you I have had credit problems in the past. Quite simply I lost my job and had outstanding debts at the time which I eventually sorted out. It took a while but my name is clear. I once again am steadily employed.
Just recently I was a bit short and needed a quick loan. I'd heard about UNCLE BUCK and duly filled in the online application. It was quite simple really. The regular credtworthiness questions, resinence and banking details etc. The amount I wanted was £800. My loan was approved very quickly and I submitted the loan agreement.

I chose to repay in 3 monthly payments and the beauty is that If I pay it off in 2 payments , eg I then save on the interest as well. It was really simple and really helped as the money was deposited into my account the same day which was great. The interest rates pretty competitive too.
UNCLE BUCK highly recommended.

I'm really not one for loans as I know that some of these loan companies are a bit shaky and the interests rates exorbitant. I wanted to go on holiday for a week because I had been working really hard and owed it to my wife too. I had saved some but it wasn't quite enough for the holiday I wanted. Another £500 was what I needed and that's when UNCLE BUCK came to the rescue quickly.Everything was easy. I filled in the forms online and answered the usual questions which they were quite happy with because the loan was soon approved and with the minimum of burocracy the £500 was deposited into my account. which I then pay back in 3 easy monthly instalments when I get back from holiday.
Thanks Uncle Buck.

Hi everybody. My name is Mike Champion and I'm 32 years old. I always try and save a bit each month because one never knows when an emergency might arise, as was the case a short while ago. My car needed to be repaired urgently and quickly. Unfortunately the guarantee had expired and the clutch needed to be replaced. Although I had saved a bit I didn't want to use it all so a friend told me about Uncle Buck and I went ahead. Everything was done online, which was great. I asked for £600 and agreed to pay it back in 3 Monthly payments. The credit check I passed easily as this is my first loan and I have a steady job with very few expenses. The day I submitted the loan agreement after approval was the day the money was put into my account. Quite amazing really. Paid the car repairs and still had quite a bit left over too , which also came in very handy. I'm sure I'll use Uncle Buck again.

I know that in the past to get a loan from a bank was one of the most complicated procedures. Thank goodness that is now a thing of the past. I needed a small loan a short while ago for a little dental emergency. The medical insurance I had did not cover the cosmetic work I needed done and as far as I was concerned it was important. I had saved some money expecting this but I was somewhat short. I also knew that I was creditworthy and no risk to a loan institution so following someone's advice I applied online to UNCLE BUCK and asked for a loan totalling £1000. This amount had to be paid back in 3 months. I found the amount of the repayment to be manageable and when my loan was approved and the money entered my account I felt hugely relieved. So easy and very little red tape. Well done Uncle Buck.

I'm 50 years old and desperately needed a small loan. I would not have considered this but my darling daughter, after a dreadful first marriage was getting married again and this time very suddenly. I felt so happy for her as this time the match was perfect. I wanted her day to be perfect but not being too well off although steadily employed. I approached Uncle Buck requesting a loan of £800 just to make her day special. It was really easy .Everything was completed online and once all the regular questions were asked and accepted the loan was approved. I submitted the loan agreement and within an hour I had the money. The repayment period was 3 months or shorter if I so desired which of course would reduce the interest. But congratulations to Uncle Buck for their professionalism.

You can do what you like, but if you have an ordinary job and you earn an ordinary salary there will come a time where you will need to put in some overtime or ask for a loan. I went for the latter and not quite knowing how to go about it I asked my neighbour who suggested I try Uncle Buck, which is what I did and very happy I did. The good thing is that it was all done online. I know that I qualify for this sort of loan as i've been employed since I was 18 years old and am now 40 years old. Also all the other requirements were met and the loan was approved.
Even the repayments are done online and the amount I asked for is to be paid over 3 months which suited me down to the ground.The interest rate was competitve too with a lot less than the normal red tape. Very happy I chose UNCLE BUCK.

Uncle Buck offer really quick affordable loans that I can pay back over a period of months instead of days or weeks. That's the reason why I have been using them for the past couple of years. They are way better than a payday loan for loads of reasons and the main one for me is just being able to borrow that little bit more and not having any trouble paying it back over a few months really is the most stress free type of loan I have ever had. Their interest rates are just as competitive as the other lenders I looked at but they just seem more flexible and affordable, which suits me down to the ground

An Uncle Buck instalment loan is one of the better ways of borrowing money. Don't ask family or friends if you can avoid it. It never ends well in most cases, well not for me anyway. Now I would rather stick pins in my eyes than ask a family member or a friend for a loan no matter how small the amount. Paying interest on a loan is normal so don't think you are being clever by asking a friend for a loan because they'll make you pay interest in a whole different way. It's called emotional blackmail and you'll be paying for ever if you have a brother like mine that still hasn't let me forget the loan he gave me 5 years ago! Uncle Buck is my new family and I like going to him for my loans because I know exactly what I am letting myself in for and it is worth every penny of interest I pay for each loan I take out with him!

I thought Uncle Buck might be an American lender just lending people dollars. I made my boyfriend laugh his head off when i first mentioned it to him. He already thinks I'm a ditzy blonde so I haven't helped my case but I have managed to get a really great instalment loan from Uncle Buck which I am using towards my new car and when I get it my boyfriend won't be laughing so much at me because my new car is going to be so much better than the clapped out Peugeot he is driving at the moment. Well I might be a ditzy blonde, but even ditzy blondes have more fun don't they!

Never used Uncle Buck until this loan but I've had lots of loans from other lenders, mainly payday loans but this instalment loan is a much better deal for me. I can borrow more and make the repayments in 3 instalments so I don't leave a big dent in my bank account like I do when I pay back a payday loan. this is definitely the way for me to borrow money from now on and I think my next loan will be going towards a trip to Florida and I was thinking of going to my bank for a loan but if I can get the maximum loan from Uncle Buck then that should be enough. So Uncle Buck better not let me down!

I use different loan companies depending on how much money I want to borrow and I am happy to use this kind of loan facility as my financial situation is fairly stable but I occasionally need a bit of a cash boost.

Uncle Buck's instalment loan is my current loan and I chose them because I hadn't used them before but a friend had and said they were very good. I have to agree with my friend and I am particularly pleased that I am able to make repayments over the telephone as I work away a lot and don't always have access to a computer. Like my friend, I would definitely recommend Uncle Buck for this type of loan.

This is a great loan from Uncle Buck that lets me repay it over a 3 month period instead of one big hit at the end of the month. I got fed up using that type of loan because they never really did me much of a favour in the long run. This instalment loan is by far the better way for me to borrow money and with Uncle Buck having such an easy website to use and them guaranteeing your money in about 15 minutes I don't think you can ask for more than that from a loan of this sort so I'll definitely use Uncle Buck again.

Uncle Buck is the title of one of my favourite movies and when I was looking online for an instalment loan I was immediately drawn to the Uncle Buck loan company. However I chose to use them for a loan because they were offering the right loan for my particular needs and wouldn't have done so otherwise. I was able to borrow the amount of money I needed and I was not worried about the repayments as I knew I could definitely afford them. Being able to make the repayments by phone was also an advantage as I'm a mobile beautician and can't always get to a computer to pay online.

There are so many loan companies out there that it really isn't difficult to get a loan that suits your particular needs and financial situation at that time. I have had several loans with other companies and been fairly satisfied with all of them but my loan with Uncle Buck is the best so far for a number of reasons.

Being able to borrow the amount of money I needed and make the repayments as agreed or pay it off earlier without incurring extra fees was another deciding factor for me. I will use Uncle Buck again most definitely and have recommended them to several friends.

An Uncle Buck instalment loan has helped me out on several occasions and that is why I use them all the time now for times when I need to get some extra cash in a hurry. I can always justify the interest I pay on these loans because of the relief I feel when I have that money in my bank account and I know I can sort out whatever debt or unexpected expense I have to deal with. It might not be everybodys ideal way to sort out a financial problem but it is for me unless I can guarantee I'm going to win on the lotto some day soon!

My brother uses Uncle Buck loans all the time to help him out when he needs some extra cash in a hurry. Neither of us are very good at saving and so when I found myself yet again having to miss out on a holiday with my friends because I didn't have any spare cash my brother persuaded me to try Uncle Buck for an instalment loan.

I am delighted to say Uncle Buck approved my loan after doing the required checks and I was happy with the repayments I had to make. I don't often admit to it but my brother was right for once.

I was able to put a deposit down on my new flat thanks to an instalment loan from Uncle Buck. The flat became available suddenly and I didn't have time to get the money any other way as I hate asking family or friends to loan me money no matter how small the amount.

I would definitely recommend an Uncle Buck instalment loan to anyone in a similar situation to me as it really is a very straightforward way to borrow money with no hidden extra charges to give you a nasty shock as everything is made clear to you on their website and reiterated when you apply for the loan.

My wife and I took out an Uncle Buck instalment loan so that we could go to a friends wedding in France. It was a bit short notice and we hadn't got much money to spare but we really wanted to especially as we both love Bordeaux where the wedding was taking place.

Our son suggested the loan with Uncle Buck and helped us make the online application explaining everything as we went along. We were delighted when Uncle Buck approved the loan and we just want to thank our son and Uncle Buck for helping us get to the wedding.

My sister suggested I apply for a loan with Uncle Buck when I said I couldn't afford to go with her to her daughters hen weekend in Majorca. She admitted that because she was paying for some of the wedding expenses she was a bit strapped for spare cash also and she so she had applied for an instalment loan with Uncle Buck herself and said I should do the same.

Reluctantly I took her advice and made the application online but I was delighted when Uncle Buck approved the loan and couldn't believe how easy and straightforward it was. I will definitely think about taking out another loan with Uncle Buck without waiting for my sister to suggest it.

I have just made the final repayment on my Uncle Buck loan and wanted to post a review to say that I was very satisfied with their service and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to my friends.

It was my first loan of this sort and I wasn't sure about it at first but once I realised how straightforward it was and that there were no hidden extra charges over and above the interest charges I was happy to agree to the terms and conditions and go ahead with the loan. Being able to make the repayments by phone was very convenient for me as I sometimes have problems with my computer.

My kids persuaded me to get a loan with Uncle Buck so that I could buy a flat screen TV for the living room of my new house which was quite small and there wasn't much room for my old bulky TV and stand. I had to agree with them but the move had already used up most of my spare cash and a loan was the only option.

We checked several loan companies but decided on Uncle Buck because they seemed the best for my particular needs. I knew how much I wanted to borrow taking into account the interest charges and I worked out that I could easily afford the repayments on an instalment loan with Uncle Buck. They approved the loan and I had the money in my account with a couple of days.

My finances have always been fairly stable and I hardly ever go overdrawn with my bank account so I pride myself on managing my money very well. However sometimes things happen that you can't always predict or plan for so when I recently needed to get my hands on several hundred pounds in a hurry the only practical option open to me was to get an instalment loan.

After checking out several loan companies online I decided that if I could get an instalment loan with Uncle Buck that would be the best one for me personally. Fortunately Uncle Buck gave me a loan with instalment repayments that I could manage easily and once the money was in my bank account I was able to sort out my little cash crisis.

An Uncle Buck instalment loan has helped me out of a bit of financial trouble a few times now and I don't worry quite so much when the usual bills start landing on the doormat. I know I can pay them and if my bank balance is running a bit low and there are other expenses that I need to take care of I go straight to the Uncle Buck website and apply online for a loan. So far I have been very lucky and they have approved my loans with repayments that I have been able to afford and as long as I can continue to borrow money this way without any problems I will continue to do so.

I recently bought my daughter a horse, which is something I had been saving up to do for a while. She has always been passionate about horses, so I wanted to give her the opportunity to pursue her dreams. What I wasn't prepared for was the amount of extra things we'd need to buy, other than the horse! It wasn't exactly things that could wait until I had the money either, so borrowing money seemed like my only option. The most important things for me were finding a reputable company which offered a fixed interest rate and no added fees or hidden charges. Uncle Buck was exactly that, and although I had quite a few questions to answer in the application process, everything was set out clearly and explained perfectly.

My finances were in a bit of a mess and I had borrowed money from family and friends to try and sort things out but it seemed to be getting me nowhere and I was beginning to get stressed as I couldn't see a way out of it..

When I was talking to a work colleague about my dilemma they were very sympathetic and said they had been in a similar situation about a year ago and managed to pay off the people they owed money to and have a bit in reserve by getting a loan with Uncle Buck.

After checking out Uncle Buck online I didn't hang about and applied for an instalment loan with them. I am relieved to say they approved my loan and within less than a week I had paid back everything I owed to family and friends and my bank account was still in the black thanks to Uncle Buck.

Having just made the final repayment on my instalment loan with Uncle Buck I just wanted to say how impressed I am with how easy and straightforward it was for me to apply for the loan online. Im not as good as the younger generation when it comes to doing this sort of thing online.

The Uncle Buck website is easy to understand and everything is explained in plain English without loads of legal jargon which can be a bit confusing for someone like me. Uncle Buck really seems to have tailored their website and their loans to appeal to ordinary people like me and for that reason I will definitely use them again.

I got a loan with Uncle Buck when I needed money in a hurry to pay the vets bill when my dog was ill and needed surgery. I can't afford more than the basic pet insurance which only covered me up to a certain amount and left me being several hundred pounds short.

I had used Uncle Buck before and as I had been very satisfied with them previously and I really didn't have time to search around for another loan company I went back to them. Fortunately Uncle Buck was still a good choice for an instalment loan and so I went with them again and they didn't let me down.

My wife took out an instalment loan with Uncle Buck to buy my 60th birthday present which was a brand new set of golf clubs which I am delighted with so I thought I had better be as generous with her 60th birthday which was approaching shortly.

I decided to use Uncle Buck as my wife had been quite up front about how she got the money to afford the clubs and I was more than happy with the loan she had got and wanted a similar deal. Uncle Buck approved an almost identical loan agreement for me and I was able to buy my wife a very special birthday present, not her own golfclubs but I beleive these particular items are supposed to be a girls best friend!

I often have to rely on loan companies to help out when my salary just wont stretch any further and I need to pay for something that I hadn't budgeted for. My current favourite for this kind of loan is Uncle Buck who I have used several times now. I like to stick with things that I know and that I am comfortable with. Uncle Buck hasn't let me down yet and I as long as they continue to approve my loans with terms and conditions that I am happy with I don't see any reason for changing things at this present time.

I took out my first loan with Uncle Buck just before Christmas last year to help with all the usual extra expense that Christmas brings. It was my first Christmas with my new wife and I wanted it to be special and didn't want to have to scrape by on just my regular wages for once.

As I managed to pay back the loan in easily affordable repayments I have decided to do the same this Christmas and to give me a head start with the nightmare of shopping for the wife's presents I am applying for the loan now. Actually I have just applied before posting this review and Uncle Buck have already approved it and I am just waiting for the money to be transferred into my bank account.

Don't judge all loan companies the same when it comes to negative press. I did until I had no choice but to take out a loan recently when I had a family emergency and needed to get some cash in a hurry.

My friend recommended Uncle Buck when I told him how much I needed to borrow and how quickly I needed to get it. I took his advice and was over the moon when Uncle Buck approved the loan. The money was in my account with 24 hours and I was able sort out the family emergency much to my relief.

I needed to take out an instalment loan rather than a payday one payment loan. After looking at several loan companies on the internet I went for Uncle Buck as I like the simple and straightforward application process and the fact that I could make repayments over the telephone instead of direct debit or the CPA method of making repayments which a lot of the loan companies seem to have adopted. I am pretty well organised and don't tend to forget important things like loan repayments so I wasn't worried about late payment fees. So far the Uncle Buck loan seems to be working for me and until it ceases to suit my needs I will continue to go to them first if and when I need another instalment loan.

The Uncle Buck loan company have just approved my first instalment loan and as soon as I knew the money was in my bank account I decided to post a review just to say how much I appreciate the speed and efficiency of the application process. It can be a worrying time waiting to hear if you have had your loan approved especially if you need the money in an emergency as was the case for me. So to be able to say your loan was approved and the money in your account in just 24 hours is a really big deal for someone like me. So thank you to Uncle Buck for a great service.

To be honest the loan from Uncle Buck wasn't for me but for my son who had got himself into a bit of financial trouble and needed my help. Normally I can put my hands on a couple of hundred quid at short notice but I had recently had a lot of extra expenditures myself and my bank balance wasn't looking too healthy.

As my son is currently unemployed he was not in a position to get a loan himself so as most parents would do I took out the loan myself to give him the cash he needed and to stop me worrying about him trying to get the money elsewhere.

My sister and me both applied for loans at the same time as we were invited to our cousins hen party weekend in Cornwall and we were as broke as each other. We both have full time jobs so we were fairly certain we would each be able to get a loan for a couple of hundred pounds.

I chose to go to Uncle Buck for my loan as my friend at work had just got a loan from them and said they were very good and usually transfer your money into your account within hours. She was spot on and my money was there within a few hours of the loan being approved. My sisters chosen loan company whose name I wont mention took nearly 48 hours to finally transfer her money but at least she got it in the end so we are both happy.

I am very pleased with the instalment loan I got from Uncle Buck. Everything they state in their online profile is accurate and so there were no surprises when I applied for the loan after reading it thoroughly. And I had more or less worked out the repayments would be before they confirmed them, so again no surprises.

Their terms and conditions are pretty straightforward and the application process very easy for anyone with basic computer skills. I also like the fact that I can pay online or by phone rather than direct debit or CPA. I like to have some control and this method of repayment allows me that.

I am a beginning collector and seller of ancient Japanese books and art. Some weeks ago I visited an auction. You cannot imagine my first reaction when I stood there right in front of something I was looking for since ages, part I of a series of 13 albums with hand-colored photographs of Japan during the 19th century. This offered me the chance to complete this extraordinary volume.

Right in time, a day before the actual auction I connected with my notebook's wifi to Uncle Buck' website which I knew before through one of my customers. Fortunately I'm still under employment so the application for a £400 loan went easy. After I agreed upon the loan agreement things ran really fast and in 20 minutes I found the £400 on my account. Thumbs up, Uncle Ben! You'v made my day!

My Uncle Buck instalment loan is the first loan of this type that I have ever had and I never really thought they would be a good way to borrow money until my friend whose judgement I trust a great deal told me he had just finished paying off one himself and admitted that it wasn't the first. Apparently he had had several similar loans to help him out when his finances were in a bit of trouble and had come to rely on them.

I wish I had found this out sooner as I would definitely have taken out my loan with Uncle Buck sooner as I am very happy now that my worries over some debts I had have gone away and I can relax and enjoy life again.

I have come to rely on payday loans to help me out every so often and don't see that as a problem because I can always make the repayments on time. Just recently I started take out instalment loans as it meant I could borrow a bit more and spread the cost over several months.

I chose Uncle Buck for my current instalment loan as I like the terms and conditions and I particularly like being able to make my repayments online which I usually do during my lunch break at work as I always make a note on my calendar to remind me when the payments are due. Failing that I can pay over the phone which is just as handy.

My Uncle Buck loan helped pay for me to go to Ibiza with my friends this Summer as I had no spare cash after buying countless wedding presents for friends who had got married this year.

Even though I have a great job that pays good money and I am normally very good at budgeting, these were not my usual spending habits and they couldn't be avoided. So most of my hard earned money went on gifts this summer. Lets face it nobody wants to turn up at a wedding reception without a present for the happy couple do they?

For everyone looking for a quick loan, I recommend Uncle Buck!
I am a student in University and sometimes paying for it can become quite tricky. Last month I found myself in debt and really needed a loan to get me through the situation I was in. So I came across Uncle Buck and decided to give it a shot. And I made the right decision. All you need to do is fill out the application online, wait for a response (that comes through soon after), and Voila! It was that easy. I gave them a ring on the phone before applying online and the customer service was great, very nice.

To anyone in a situation like mine, get onto Uncle Buck, you wont regret it. Now my payments are up to date and I don't have to worry about my Uni fees. Very happy!
Thank you!

Getting my instalment loan from Uncle Buck involved a bit of hanging around and waiting for the all important approval which comes with the loan agreement which you have to read through carefully before submitting your acceptance. But once I had read and then re-read the terms and conditions before submitting the agreement back to Uncle Buck I literally only had to wait a few minutes for the loan to be finalised and the money to be transferred to my account. As loans go I don't think you could find too much wrong with it especially as the interest rates are really very competitive compared to what my own bank were charging for a similar loan. So I think I can safely say that I would definitely use Uncle Buck again for a similar type of instalment loan provided their interest rates stay as competitive as they are at the moment.

I always thought of Uncle Buck as a payday lender so never even considered using them for this instalment loan until I did a quick search on the Readies loan comparison website and saw them on the instalment loan section. I suppose it makes sense that Uncle Buck would be offering more than just the small payday loans that I have taken advantage of from time to time. Now that I have got this really great instalment loan which is going to pay for my trip to Las Vegas I will definitely consider using Uncle Buck instalment loans again in the future. If I plan things better I might even be able to use them instead of payday loans which are very convenient but they are not as cost effective as an instalment loan.

I've tried a few short term loan companies now and I still prefer Uncle Buck because of their very straightforward loan application and the simple repayment options., being able to make repayments by phone is good because I am out and about a lot.

I don't have time to waste because of my busy job and so anything that makes my life a bit easier is a plus for me. I use loans to help make things easier for me and so if the application process is easy, the money gets paid into my account quickly and the repayments aren't difficult then that is all I want from a loan company. Except maybe lower interest rates but then that goes for all the loan companies I have used.

When my mates were all going to Ibiza a few weeks ago and wanted me to go with them I didnt have the spare cash as I had already been to Marbella earlier this summer. I couldnt borrow the money from my parents as they had already helped me out with Marbella.

I decided to take out a loan as I have used loan companies before and this time I went with Uncle Buck as I had been told about them by someone at work who uses them.

there loans aren't bad and I like that I can make my repayments over the phone as I am a driver with a delivery firm and spend a lot of time on the road.

Mum always said I had a guardian angel watching over me, but that's not how I felt during the run up to Christmas last year - I went through some really tough times financially. I guess everybody has times like that in their life, but it wasn't something I could see a way out of without some financial help, which is where Uncle Buck came in. I wouldn't exactly call them guardian angels, but I can say I don't know what I would have done without their assistance. I got an installment loan which got me through my rough time, and the installments that I will repay the amount in, will come out of my bank on certain dates - I've already jotted them down on my calendar so that I'm prepared and nothing can go wrong.

I am writing this review to say how pleased I was with the service I got from Uncle Buck loans. I had not used them before but had heard about them from someone at work.

The application requirements weren't an issue for me but I did worry that the repayments on a loan for the amount I was borowing might be a problem but that turned out to be alright as well because they were within my affordability.

If I want another loan I will try Uncle Buck again now that I know they are a good loan option for someone like me.

I was worried about taking out a loan, because I thought after I did it once, I would be tempted to do it again and again, rather than saving my money over time in order to be able to pay for the things I wanted. I guess it's all about self control, and I was just doubting mine. Uncle Bucks service was actually so easy to follow, that I think I probably will end up using it again in the future, but only when I really need it, I am determined not to make a habit out of it. It does mean that I don't need to get myself so worked up and stressed out when money problems arise, because Uncle Buck are quite flexible and offer a range of loans for different amounts, so they've got something to suit everyone.

What is it about loans that is so terrifying? Maybe nothing to most people, but I seemed to have some fear about discussing my financial matters with anyone, especially when it came to needing financial help. It was good to be able to look online to see what sort of thing I was eligible for, but I didn't realize I would be able to go through and do the whole thing online - after all, such things normally require a physically signed document. I submitted my application and was shocked to discover that I would have the funds available to me in as little as fifteen minutes - doing everything online was so much less embarrassing than having to discuss my financial short falls face to face with somebody.

Banks scare me big time, I avoid having any thing to do with my bank apart from the usual day to day stuff. I wouldn't dare go to them for a loan so thats why I love lenders like Uncle Buck. I have used Uncle Buck loads of times now and most of my holidays have been thanks to instalment loans from Uncle Buck. I have used Sunny and Pixie Loans before but I keep going back to Uncle Buck now because I find their application process easy and quick. As soon as I get the approval I submit the loan agreement immediately and can usually get my money the same day or within 24 hours depending on whether I applied for the loan in the morning or afternoon.

I know there will come a time when I need to borrow a lot more money for something like a new car or even a mortgage and thats when I will have to give in and go to my bank but until then I will stick with my very friendly Uncle Buck loans.

Its my wifes 40th birthday recently and I borrowed the money from Uncle Buck to pay for a weekend in Lisbon. She had spent some time there when she was younger and always wanted to go back and visit some of the friends she made there.

Money had always been the stumbling block but as this was a special birthday I was determined she was going to go there and that was only going to happen with the help of a loan.

Uncle Buck made it happen by approving the loan with an affordable repayments schedule that I wasn't worried about being able to pay each month. We have just got back from Lisbon and we are already talking about visiting Portugal again but maybe next time we will head a bit further south to the Algarve.

Maybe once Uncle Buck have all your details registered with them they can fast track your loan application in which case that would be a good enough reason for me to keep using them instead of trying different lenders each time. Provided Uncle Buck's rates stay competitive and they don't change their application process and make it more complicated, I think that is what I will be doing from now on because I really am very happy with Uncle Buck loans so far.

I heard a bloke in our local pub talking about Uncle Buck and thought he sounded like a very generous relative handing out cash every time this chap needed some extra cash. I am not very familiar with these online lenders so I had no idea that was who his 'Uncle Buck' was at first. But my wife is much more clued in to the internet and she knew all about Uncle Buck and most of the other loan companies we came across when we started looking for an affordable instalment loan to pay for some new living room curtains and carpet.

We thought we'd give this Uncle Buck chap a go and were delighted when we got our loan approved within a couple of days. Once we had submitted our agreement we only had to wait about an hour or so to receive the money which we thought was excellent service. The wife has gone ahead and ordered her curtains and carpet neither of which I have been allowed any input in but what do I know anyway, I'd never even heard of Uncle Buck until now!

I only use payday instalment loans to buy the more expensive items that I occasionally like to treat myself to such as designer bags and shoes. I get paid a good salary and can afford to pay for the regular high st store items each month and still make sure I have enough money left to make the repayments on a loan easily.

My current loan with Uncle Buck has been approved and the money transferred to my bank and it has just helped me to buy a fabulous designer dress for my cousins wedding and I just hope nobody turns up wearing the same dress as me!

Since I have got far more confident using the internet I have discovered how easy it is to get a loan these days. There is so much information and help on several different loan comparison websites to make things even easier for you. Thats how I ended up with my loan from Uncle Buck. I clicked on to the the instalment loans section of the Readies loan comparison website and started scrolling through the different lenders' profiles. I am not really sure why I chose Uncle Buck because there were other lenders offering similar rates for their loans but I think being able to make my repayments over the phone might have swayed my decision. I am not set up for online banking and so using my debit card to make repayments over the phone suits me just fine. I have set up reminders so that I dont forget a repayment and I am looking forward to putting my loan money to good use now thanks to Uncle Buck.

I don't know what I would do without loan companies like Uncle Buck. Even though I have a good steady job that pays well above the minumum wage I still never seem to be able to afford expensive things like holidays and jewellery for the wife without taking out a loan.

Still I suppose if i can afford the repayments each month then I may as well make the most of this type of borrowing while I am still working and earning a decent salary. Once I am retired that will be it as far as payday loans are concerned.

When I split up with my boyfriend of ten years recently I had to get away for a while so as to avoid bumping in to him whenever I went to places that he goes to as well.

One of my girlfriends was going to Ibiza on a last minute holiday and suggested I go with her. I had some money but not enough and so I applied to Uncle Buck for a loan after checking their website out. They were really good and approved my loan and got the money into my bank account within 24 hours so I could book myself on to the same flight as my friend. We are looking forward to partying Ibiza style and checking out the fit guys while we are there.

My parents live abroad and because of my work and family commitments here in the UK and severe lack of spare cash I dont get to visit them as often as I would like. My dad is quite frail after a serious illness and so he cant travel far.

My wife said that even though we cant afford to make the journey as a family I should maybe get a loan so that at least I can go and see my parents. So that is why I have taken out a loan with Uncle Buck and I am glad that I did because when I told my parents I was coming to visit them net week they were crying with happiness as only parents can.

My sister and her boyfriend are moving in together and I wanted to take over the tenancy on her old flat. I had been sleeping on different mates sofas for a while since splitting up with my girlfriend and I decided it was time to get my act together and get my own place.

I took out an instalment loan with UncleBuck to help with the cost of everything and I am glad to say that I am in my new flat now and the only sofa I will be sleeping on is my own when I fall asleep in front of the TV.

I got an instalment loan with Uncle Buck as I had used them before and had been satisfied with their terms and conditions for the amount I wanted to borrow. I wanted the money so that I could buy some equipment and beauty products so that I could start doing some private beauty treatments for family and friends in my spare time.

I work in an office during the week because I earn really good money but I have always loved make up and beauty therapy things and being able to do it in my spare time until I can afford to have my own salon this is the next best thing.

I took out a loan once in the past, and defaulted on the repayment. This caused me huge problems, and the fees I incurred as a result were incredibly high. It took me a long time to recover my credit score after this, and although I was now in a position where I wanted to borrow money again, I was much more aware of the risks involved. Because of this, I sat down and planned exactly how much I wanted to borrow, and how much I could afford to pay back in each instalment. Uncle Buck were great because they gave me an approval despite my history, and have assured me that I will never face more than 15 pounds in default fees if I should run into any problems.

I've wanted to further my training for quite some time now, but I've always felt stuck in a bit of a catch 22. If I give up work to go back to college, I won't be earning enough to get by. But if I don't get the extra training I need, I'm never going to get the promotions I want either. When I first looked into the evening classes, I dismissed the idea pretty quickly, because the price was just more than I could afford. But if I wanted to start earning more, I knew I needed to do it. That was when I started looking at borrowing money, and came across Uncle Buck loans. I was able to borrow the full amount I needed, and can pay it back over several months, so I'll still have enough money to get by. At last I can get to where I want to be, and not feel trapped any more.

I know that with some money lending companies, they require that you make repayments through an automated direct debit. This is something I didn't really like the idea of as I already have several direct debits going out of my personal account every month that I struggle to keep track of. With Uncle Buck, they didn't insist that I made my repayments in this way. Instead I now make my repayments via phone, at a time of day that is convenient for me. This also means I have time to ensure that I have a sufficient amount of money in my account before making the payment, so I avoid any overdraft charges too.

As I work as a freelancer, any extra training or certificates I want to take, have to be financed by me. I work in a competitive market, so trying to keep my prices right but also keeping a high quality of service isn't always so easy. There was an extra training course coming up in my area, but it wasn't cheap, and I didn't think I had the extra money to invest in it, even though it would mean I'm likely to increase my earnings in the future. After a lot of thought, I came to the conclusion that I should get a loan, in order to be able to invest in my career. With Uncle Buck, they assessed my earnings and repayment capabilities, and agreed to offer me the amount I needed. I was so relieved, and really rate their service.

Last month my washing machine decided to stop working, so I had to start doing all my laundry at the local laundrette. Not only was this really time consuming, it was becoming costly too. At the time I didn't have sufficient funds to just go out and buy a brand new washing machine. I had considered buying something second hand, but knew there would be no guarantee as to how long something like that would last. In the end, I turned to Uncle Buck and applied for an instalment loan. To my relief, I was approved, and went out and bought a new washing machine the same week. I will pay back the amount in four separate instalments over the coming months, which means I will still have enough money to cover my general monthly costs.

A sudden and unexpected thunderstorm made an end to my satellite dish. Maybe it happened because of the remote place our house is located. Now what?

By the time I realized that it would cost me a new dish and maybe a new decoder it was my wife Barbara who pointed me to the days I used the services of a loan company called Uncle Buck.

At first I hesitated, as we were 'good' in financial terms but with the coming of our second child which was estimated to be born within two months time I agreed to use Uncle Buck once more.

The proceedings were the same, except for that the application didn't go by paper form and over the regular mail but online. Very convenient I must say, but for my I still prefer to have contact with a person.

Nevertheless all, including the information about my new employer was accepted and within less than a week my loan for 600 quid was approved, no further questions asked. That's what I call service!

Well the only negative aspect of getting this Uncle Buck instalment loan is that it wasn't as quick as the payday loans I have had in the past. A big positive is that it really is a much better loan alternative for me. I just need to think a bit further in advance when I need the loan because this one took several days to be finalised and I was getting a bit impatient for the funds to reach my bank account.

Now that I know how the Uncle Buck instalment loan process works, I will definitely use them again instead of a payday loan because even though I have to wait a couple more days to get the money, once it arrives the rest of the loan period is far easier, cheaper and less bother than a payday loan.

I have never used this sort of loan company before, my only other loan was from my bank several years ago to buy a new car. But there are so many more options for people wanting to borrow money these days that I decided to give my bank a miss this time and try one of the many online lenders.

Uncle Buck was one of several instalment loan lenders I looked at but I went with them in the end because they seemed a fairly straightforward type of lender and also a couple of my friends had used them and were satisfied with the loans Uncle Buck had given them. It helps when you get a recommendation from people you trust.

I have just had the loan approved and have submitted my loan agreement. I have been told to expect the funds any time within the next 24 hours which is great because if I had gone to my bank for a similar loan I would still be waiting to hear if I was even being considered for the loan!

I forgot I had a wedding to attend and that I had to wear a suit and my wardrobe consists of mainly jeans and track suit bottoms. That wasn't going to go down well with the bride and groom or my girlfriend for that matter. I had to buy a suit, shirt and tie etc. before the weekend and I had just 10 quid in my pocket.

They guys at work suggested getting a payday loan but that would work out quite expensive because I needed to borrow about 3 or 4 hundred quid. the instalment loan option was going to be better for me and so I clicked on the website and chose Uncle Buck because they were advertising the exact type of loan I was looking for and it just made it easier for me.

I got the loan approved within 24 hours and the funds are in my bank account now so me and the girlfriend are shopping for my new togs after work tonight so that she can be sure I don't embarass her at this wedding tomorrow.

After a big bust up with my partner we got back together just after xmas and even though I was skint from buying presents for all my family I really wanted to make it up to my partner and take her away for a nice romantic weekend. I found a lovely hotel in the Cotswolds with a luxury spa and indoor swimming pool and decided that was the perfect venue for our romantic weekend.

I needed about a grand to cover the cost of it and so I looked on the internet for an affordable loan and decided a short term instalment loan would be best. I applied for an instalment loan from Uncle Buck because their rates were one of the lowest and within 48 hours I had the money in my bank so I went ahead and booked the hotel and to my delight they have upgraded us free of charge to the honeymoon suite.

If all goes well on this weekend I might be taking out another loan to buy an engagement ring but I am not counting my chickens just yet, we'll just have to see how the weekend in the Cotswolds goes.

Usually expecting a baby comes with expenses, obviously. This time it was our turn and it was our first. Not that it was unexpected, on the contrary. We even had the name already months before we even considered to have a child. But now all the dots became connected it turned out to be slightly more expensive as we have thought about.

Our calculations showed a shortage of £1500, but with a little support of both our parents we got it down to a final £1000.

I used to know Uncle Buck already long before we got married which made it a lot easier to go through the requirements although some of them I find a bit silly, such as the question if I ever got involved in a case of bankruptcy myself. Nevertheless Uncle Buck suited our needs perfectly so we'd gave it a try.

All the required steps were taken and after entering our place of residence and about our employment situation everything went smooth and without obstacles. A couple of days later we received the proposal for a loan agreement.

An feature I was pleased about is that I'm able to make extra payments, even online or by phone without repayment fees in case I wish to pay off earlier than was planned and without interest charges against no more than 0.8% per day.

We're ready for the great adventure, knowing Uncle Buck is at our side in case we need another loan.

My ex moved out of our flat and I was glad to see the back of him but I was left without a TV and that was not a situation I could live with for too long.

I decided to go to my old friend Uncle Buck and get another installment loan to buy a bigger and better TV. Because I had used Uncle Buck before I knew how it worked and the loan process didn't take me too long. I had the loan approved within 24 hours and the money in my account shortly after that.

I have ordered my new bigger and better TV which is being delivered at the weekend and if my ex ever gets around to collecting the rest of his stuff which I have carefully stuffed into several bin bags, I shall make a point of showing him my new TV

I'm not sure why some of these loan companies have such silly names, they don't sound very professional to say the least. But I had to put the silly names to one side when I started looking for a competitive instalment loan because most of the top ones do have silly names. Uncle Buck, where on earth did they get that name from? It doesn't really matter because I like the loan they have given me and as it's one of the cheapest instalment loans I could find, they can call themselves whatever they like. The application process was indeed fast and simple and once I had submitted my agreement the money was in my account in less than an hour. Their name might be silly but they are definitely a very serious lender.
