Microsoft covers all 360's for the RROD for 3 years. Nothing to pay to get it fixed and you usually get a brand new console returned. Just remember not to send it off with the HDD, MC, any gamers or accessories as you won't get them back.
IIRC, the RROD is caused from overheating and the heatsink paste disintegrating into nothingness. If you search youtube you can find temporary fixes (usually the towel trick). It will put you on for abit until you get a new one or Microsoft sort it out.

I suppose it depend's where you live, myself and my friend sent ours off and had them back just over a week but was told it can take anything upto one month

That's some speedy TLC. How did you fix it, or was the RROD just temporary?
