About Sunny Loans
Sunny was introduced to the market in 2013, although this was as a rebrand of 1 Month Loan who started out in 2004. This change came when Elevate Credit (was Think Finance) acquired the operation of the Fortress Group. They did for a short time also trade locally as Quid, but this project was later discontinued. Elevate now collectively serves 2.2 million customers. Most of which are however attributed to their Stateside brands (Elastic, Rise and the new Today credit card). Sunny’s growth has been impressive to witness. They are arguably the most visible subprime lender through TV and web advertising and this has pushed them on to become the most popular instalment brand.
Sunny’s product has set levels that run as £100 to £1000 (6m), £1100 to £1500 (7m), £1600 to £2000 (9m) and £2100 to £2500 (14m). They do widely promote that you have the ability to simply settle up early. It would however be better to see more term options at application as well as the amounts being available across all selections. A unique feature from this firm is that they offer customers 5 days to back up if they change their mind. For this, you call them to return the loan without any interest or fees. They are also open 7/7, charge no late fees and they score well on Trustpilot at 86%.

Rivals & Similar Lenders Like Sunny
Sunny’s main competitor has generally been Lending Stream for instalment terms. There are however other high flying brands especially Satsuma Loans and The One Stop Money Shop. Of all those noted, Satsuma’s product flexibility stands out. With pricing, the costs are similar across the major brands, but if you are a first time borrower then you can take advantage of Sunny’s promo code that would hand you the cheapest deal of the pack. You may prefer to go for a leading sector subprime deal. In which case, Fair Finance is cheapest at 6 months charging £116 per £300 borrowed, although once you return for a 2nd loan you’ll pay just £92.
