5 ways to spend free money from Peabody
To celebrate last week’s Stamp Duty holiday extension savings, this month, we’re giving buyers the chance to discover more about their finances and benefit from not one, but two gifts that will be sure to have you filling up your online shopping basket.
But with £1,500 from us and at least £4,500 to save on your stamp duty, how will you make the most of your savings? Well, here’s 5 suggestions that might inspire your spend…
1. Save the money for a rainy day
Ok – so this might be a little bit of a dull option but you never know when an extra cash could come in handy. With the cost of buying a new home stretching into the thousands (and that’s before the mortgage and deposit!), it’s always useful to know that you can recoup some of that money back and build up your savings again.
2. Virtual celebrations
We’re all a little quizzed-out since the lockdown, but there are still some really fun virtual experiences that can bring family and friends together ahead of things returning back to normal this summer.
Treat the family, get to know your new neighbours or line up a few great date nights by taking part in some great online activities like online cooking classes, virtual escape rooms, digital painting sessions or even online wine tasting sessions. The choices are endless and you might even have some money left over!
3. Brand new furniture for the new pad
Now, this is a bit of a must! One of the best things about moving into your own place is being able to make it yours. Get inspired by our Peabody Interior Challenge and go wild with choosing a brand new colour scheme, furniture and accessories to suit your tastes. Rather than wait to save up money for new things, make the most of the cashback and the £50 Amazon voucher which is always valuable when buying stuff for the home.
One tip from us would be to also check out second-hand options from Facebook Market place and eBay to make your money go further; there are some great gems to be found!
4. Kit out your kitchen
For all the foodies out there – this is a really fun way to spend your cashback.
There’s always a new gadget or gizmo coming to the market aimed to revolutionise the way you create, cook and consume meals. And now you can be the envy of friends and family and release your inner chef by buying them!
Unearth your culinary skills and fall in love with the kitchen and cooking, by treating yourself to great quality appliances in addition to the great integrated ones we give you as standard.
Personally, I’m saving up for a new Ninja Air fryer which will give you healthy, delicious and nutritious meals in moments.
5. Vacation / Stay-cation
After the year we’ve all had I’m sure that enjoying the outdoors and going abroad is top of most of our lists – and it should be. After staying home and helping support our NHS, we’ve been able to make the most of a situation that no one saw coming. So reward yourself (and maybe a loved one) and book yourself an amazing vay-or-stay-cation! Whether it’s one big holiday or several mini getaways, make the most of your savings with Peabody.
But in all honesty… the options are endless.
Being gifted a £50 voucher for something you need to do anyway is great – and talking to our mortgage advisors means that you not only find out if you can afford a home with Peabody; but you find out if you can afford a home with any provider.
And the extra gift of £1,500 cashback and no stamp duty to pay until June – well, it’s a no brainer and definitely worth checking out our amazing homes with this offer on.
So take a look, and let us know what you spent your £1,500 cashback on!
Offer terms and conditions: £50 Amazon voucher valid if you view and complete a financial assessment before 31 March 2021 and will be sent within 2 weeks of viewing to your Peabody registered email account.
