Hola Anabelle,

we don't use hasta in that context, no. You need "para" or "antes de", for example:

Necesito el coche para el sábado/antes del sábado.

I need the car for/by/before saturday.

Have a look at this lesson about that specific use of para.

Saludos

The lesson said for a deadline to use “hasta.” Now I am confused.

Hola Kathy

I think you may have misread the information in the lesson -it's saying we use "para" (not hasta) to express deadline.
