Buying and selling unwanted gift cards has never been so easy, you’re going to love Zeek!
I’ve lost count of the amount of times over the years that I’ve received a voucher or gift card for a shop I don’t really use.
It generally stays in a draw somewhere, unloved and unused.
But, there is somewhere you can sell your unwanted gift cards, as well as pick up a couple of knock down ones yourself – this is why I love Zeek.
The makers of Zeek have created an online marketplace which matches people up who are looking to sell their unwanted gift cards to others looking to shop at that store.
In this short review I’ll look from the perspectives of both the seller and the buyer.
As an extra ‘Brucey Bonus’ , if you sign up to Zeek via the link below – using my Zeek promocode 23KBXDZA – you’ll get a free £5 credited to your account.
Selling your unwanted gift cards
If you do find yourself with unwanted gift cards, rather than let it go to waste, you can sell your unwanted gift cards for cash on Zeek.
The whole process really couldn’t be any easier. Simply add the value of the gift card, the expiry date, serial number and CVV/PIN.
You also need to capture a photo of both sides of the voucher – EASY!
Now, you will be selling your gift card at less than face value, generally between 3% and 15% less depending on the popularity of the store.
But, if you were just going to let it expire in a drawer what have you got to lose?
Buy unwanted gift cards
The selling part of the app is an extremely useful service, of that there is no doubt.
However, it’s the buying side that caught my eye!
If you have upcoming plans to spend money at a specific store, you can buy a voucher for below face value and get a discount on your purchase.
Take my example.
I am in desperate need of some new work shirts and intended to go to H&M on the advice of a friend.
Right now I can get up to 10% off by buying someone else’s gift card on Zeek – a £69 voucher for £62.
You may be thinking £7 isn’t all that much, however, can you imagine if your bank offered you an interest rate of 10% on your savings?
This is, for all intents and purposes, the same thing!
Using Zeek for your weekly shop at Asda, a meal out at Nandos or some new clothes will soon add up over the course of the year, quite easily reaching hundreds of pounds if you used it every time you could.
How much can you save with Zeek?
Available on the app right now are some of the following discounts:
- Pizza Hut – Face Value £100; Price you pay £88; Discount 18%
- Ticket+ – Face Value £50; Price you pay £39; Discount 22%
- Optical Express – Face Value £100; Price you pay £80; Discount 20%
- AA Driving School ( 9available) – Face Value £25; Price you pay £21; Discount 16%
- H&M – Face Value £100; Price you pay £90; Discount 10%
- Frankie and Benny’s – Face Value £100; Price you pay £89; Discount 11%
The reason why I have shown you such a mixed bag of discounts is to highlight how easy it is to use Zeek for everyday use.
If you’re going to be spending money anyway, it’s worth checking out to see if you can get yourself a discount in the process.
This is why I love Zeek!
You can search for the store with ease to see if there is anything available.
Would I use Zeek again?
Absolutely, YES, YES, YES!
I can see it getting used weekly, especially in the run up to Christmas.
And, with such a broad range of discounts available, it is sure to be a regular favourite in the Taylor household!
I honestly can’t rate it enough, go and give it a try for yourselves and let me know what you think.
