As long as you have the money ready, I'd put the repairs on your credit card--but you might have to pay off that $50 first to insure that you don't start accruing finance charges right away. Depending on your billing cycle, this gives you 3-7 weeks before you have to pay for the repairs. That's not a lot of time to replenish your emergency fund, but it's something.
