CubTuc is a free local classifieds website dedicated to university and college students. It provides a single platform for text book rentals, carpooling, student jobs, daily deals and trading on campus.
A simple but unique idea, it has currently been launched across all Canadian Universities and is soon to expand to schools south of the border. Since its inception it has received an influx of positive reviews and new subscribers, the founders had one goal in mind, “make the student life easier and safer.”
After hearing many horror stories involving students being cheated on some of the more popular local classifieds sites, a question was raised. How can local trade be improved for students? CubTuc was created to provide a community within which students will be better protected. It incorporates features to highlight ads posted by students and trusted merchants, enabling other pupils browsing the website to pick and choose which ads to respond to.
“With the launch of CubTuc, we are going to change the landscape of ‘student to student’ as well as ‘merchant to student’ relations,” said Saad Anjum, CubTuc’s CEO. “The launch of the product will go a long way to strengthen campus culture and to alleviate some of the stress associated with post-secondary life”
Text book rental is an area of focus for CubTuc, this is a practice that is gaining popularity due to its benefits, saving money for the student and saving trees for the environment. Renting textbooks instead of buying cuts down book expenses by more than 50% each year, the books are then returned at the end of the course without the normal hassle of trying to find a used book buyer.
Student Jobs is another area of focus for the website, CubTuc is building strategic partnerships with local businesses and companies that surround each university, they are then able to provide exclusive job openings only available to students. Through these partnerships, CubTuc looks forward to be a portal where companies can offer internship to students in related fields of study.
The daily deals section will undoubtedly be the most popular section of the website, CubTuc will be providing student only deals by forming close relationships with trusted local merchants. CubTuc stepped out to the student population and conducted surveys on what items they want discounted, the section will provide daily deals on everything from pizza to popular electronics.
