ZEEK App Review
I’m always on the lookout for new apps that help me save money and I have recently discovered a new one – Zeek. Zeek is an app that allows you to buy and sell discounted vouchers. The idea is that if you have any kind of vouchers you don’t want then you can sell them on Zeek for cash. You can also buy vouchers for less than the voucher amount, saving you money!
There are loads of different brands gift cards available, such as Argos, Boots, Starbucks, Cineworld and Sainsburys. Vouchers are typically discounted anything from 2-40% of the value price.
The Zeek app is available for both iPhone and Android. Once downloaded you can sign up using your Facebook account or using your email address.
Buying Gift Cards on Zeek
Buying vouchers on Zeek is nice and easy. You will see a list of current vouchers available and their cost/value on the main page. You can set your preferences to only show the brands that you are interested in. There is also a handy search box to specifically find what you are looking for.
When you click on a brand you can see all the available vouchers that can be purchased at that time with the discount amount shown clearly. To buy you just add the voucher to your basket and pay using card or PayPal. Electronic vouchers are sent to you instantly and physical vouchers will be posted to you within 7 working days.
New users to Zeek are eligible for a free £3 to use towards their first order. You just need to enter a code (go to redeem credit code on the app) and enter my code 2LAG8P5B to receive £3 credit.
I was also offered an additional £5 off when I spent £50 when I first signed up.
Selling Gift Cards on Zeek
Selling unwanted vouchers on Zeek is also straightforward. On the app you will see an option for selling vouchers at the bottom of the screen. You will need to search for the brand of the voucher you are selling and then fill out a few details like the value, expiry date and serial number. Sometimes you may also be required to take a picture of the gift card (if a physical one). You can then choose the amount to sell the voucher for – of course the bigger the discount you choose, the faster it will sell. Once the voucher is sold then you will be required to post it (unless an e-voucher) and you will get the postage cost refunded. Zeek charges a £3 processing fee for selling a voucher. Payment should be received within 14 days of your voucher being sold.
I think Zeek is a useful app that has a dual purpose – for selling those vouchers you won’t use and for saving money by buying vouchers for less than their face value. It’s definitely worth downloading the app as it will probably come in handy. Don’t forget to use the code to get £3 off your first order!
