Need to make that last student loan instalment last a bit longer than usual? Zeek, a new gift voucher marketplace, allows students to buy unused gift vouchers at reduced prices and save hundreds on their weekly shopping.

Mobile app Zeek offers an extensive number of vouchers from a range of top student brands. Covering everything from Primark to Starbucks, Ticketmaster to Ikea, the app lets users save as much as 40 per cent on their regular purchases.

Students can also sell any of their own unwanted vouchers through the app too. So next time your birthday/Christmas comes around and gran gets you some naff gift card you’ll never use, you can trade it in for a bit of cash instead.

We set Cydney from Liverpool University the challenge of seeing how much she could buy with the app on a budget of £40. After a quick browse, she was able to buy three gift vouchers originally worth £20 each for just two pounds over her budget – a total saving of £18.

“I had £20 to spend in each of River Island, Boots and Pizza Hut. At River Island I bought a black crop top and a necklace. In Boots I got more than my money’s worth with my voucher: I left the shop with a bag bulging with Rimmel liquid eyeliner, Rimmel lipstick, Maybelline waterproof mascara, coconut body oil AND three facemasks.

“After all that shopping it was time for a bit of food, and I was able to use my Pizza Hut voucher to order a large stuffed crust half and half pizza and a drink.

“Using Zeek was extremely easy and I was impressed by the wide range of high street gift cards I could buy. The savings make it perfect for any student.”

It’s been a long day and you’ve still not learned how to cook properly. Thankfully, there are Pizza Hut vouchers on Zeek so you can gorge on pizza at a knock-down price. The voucher won’t get rid of your feeling of guilt for being so unhealthy though.
