Wise ways to spend your loan during lockdown

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And no, I’m not talking about Christmas, I’m talking about that magical moment where your bank balance goes from ‘on the ropes’ to ‘living my best life.’ When your loan drops this time around though, it’ll be a bit of a different story. Although you won’t be able to go out and burn your money on a night out, there are definitely some great ways to spend your loan to make your lockdown experience a whole mood.

Invest in a laptop or tablet

Now is the perfect time to upgrade your laptop or tablet. You’re probably spending most of your days on these right now, whether that’s on zoom lectures, finishing those essays or watching too much Netflix! Whatever you’re looking for, this is the perfect time to research specs and make sure you have the device that gives you everything you need.

If you’re looking for a Mac or iPad remember you can get up to 10% off at Apple. Or if you’re looking for a yoga laptop (that flips and moves with you) you can get 20% off with Lenovo.

Up your loungewear game

If lockdown has taught us one thing, it is that being comfortable is one of life’s great pleasures. We’re talking trackies, big t-shirts, slippers, wooly socks, oversized everything!

Streaming service of dreams

Let’s face it, most of your time will be spent keeping yourself entertained. Make it easier for yourself and grab yourself a new streaming service subscription. Whether it’s Disney+, Now TV or Amazon Prime Video we’ve got you covered.

Fitness gear

It seems we’ve all become home fitness fanatics during lockdown, especially when we haven’t been able to get to the gym or go to classes we normally would. But just because you’re working out from home, it doesn’t mean you can’t work out right. Investing in some good fitness clothes is a good place to start.

It’s time to get into skincare

Everyone’s biggest excuse about not looking after their skin properly is about not having time. Well, now we have more time on our hands, I couldn’t think of a better time to get into skincare. The best part is, it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg either. We’ve got deals like 15% off Aveda and 20% off at Rituals so you can look after your skin without bankrupting yourself!
