We did an article on Zeek, the online giftcard marketplace, a few weeks ago. I thought it was worth another mention today as you may have received some gift cards for Christmas which you honestly can’t see yourself using.
Zeek is a platform where you can buy and sell gift cards, helping you save money and turning unwanted gift cards into cash.
How does it work?
Let’s say Auntie Charlie gave you a New Look gift card for Christmas but you prefer Zara. Instead of putting your gift card in a drawer – and then forgetting about it leading to the gift card expiring – you can take your New Look gift card and stick it on Zeek.
You will get some money for it and can then use this money to buy a discounted Zara gift card instead, or simply withdraw the cash to your bank account. The site claims that 94% of gift cards listed are sold within a day.
You need to create a Zeek account with your email, Facebook or Google account before buying or selling gift cards. You will need to verify your phone number before your account is opened.
You can set your own price as long as it’s at least 8% off the face value.
You will be charged a processing fee of 7% with a minimum fee of £3.
On the buy a gift card page you can find a list of all available gift cards. You can choose between in-store and online cards as well as whether you want a printable voucher, physical gift card or eGift card.
Refer a friend
If you find Zeek useful, it is easy to refer your friends and pick up £5 each after their first purchase using your promo code.
