Black Friday is nearly upon us, and by now, we're sure you've got a list as long as your arm filled with things you can't wait to buy. Fancy getting even more of a discount on those purchases? We know just the way. Enter: Zeek (opens in new tab).

WHAT IS ZEEK? (opens in new tab)is a marketplace where you can a) sell those unwanted gift cards you've got in your wallet, and b) purchase gift cards at a discounted price which can then be used in store and online with retailers such as ASOS (opens in new tab), Currys PC World (opens in new tab), Oliver Bonas (opens in new tab), Apple (opens in new tab) and many more.  

Well worth a play around with, as the platform can save you anything between five to 25 per cent on your shopping, and not just on Black Friday.


Zeek (opens in new tab) purchase gift cards from people and then sell them on at a discounted price, so that you can make a saving. For example, if you wanted to purchase something from The White Company (opens in new tab), you can buy a £100 gift card from Zeek for just £87, which will save you £13. There's no limit on how many of these you can buy or use at one time, so if you're spending £300 at The White Company (opens in new tab), you could make a saving of £39, not including any discounts or offers The White Company may have on at the time. 


Assuming you're already clued up on what you want to purchase and where you want to get it from, head over to Zeek (opens in new tab) and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You'll then be given the choice of the gift voucher amount you'd like to buy. Sometimes, it can be worth buying a larger amount if it means you'll get a bigger saving, as you don't have to spend all of the money at once if you don't need to.

Once you've purchased your voucher, you can then use it on the retailer's site when you pay. It can also be used in conjunction with any other discount codes, so on Black Friday, you won't only get Black Friday savings, you'll also be getting a saving from Zeek, too. 

They also have an app (opens in new tab), so you can make saving that little bit easier.


Once you've used Zeek (opens in new tab) to make a purchase, you'll be given a unique code. Share this with your friends and you'll get £10 credit when they make a purchase, and they'll get £5 too!
