Have you heard of Zeek? It is an app on your phone or tablet where you get to buy vouchers at a cheaper price than you would get them in the shops. Before Christmas last year I joined Zeek and I bought an online gift card for The Entertainer and got it at 20% discount. Then I used it on the website and bought loads of toys in the pre Christmas sale. If only Christmas shopping could be that easy all the time! Recently I purchased another voucher on there and got a Thomas Cook voucher with £100 on it and saved 3%, so got it for £97.00. That £3 may not seem like a saving to many people but it is a couple of ice creams when we go away. When you join Zeek, using a referral code, you get £5 off your first voucher. So if you join today using 2R8132R9, then add it to the promo section in the 'more' category and you have £5 credit on your account. You must do this before you order your first voucher. I will also get £5 added to my account. The credit cannot be added after the first purchase so please add it first.
Buying the gift cards is easy and then you go to the appropriate website and spend your gift card. So if you choose a Superdrug in-store voucher for £50, at the moment on Zeek you can get it for £47. saving £3 and then you get your £5 discount, so the £50 gift card will cost you £43. So you could buy a lot of cruelty free products ready for your summer holiday for £50 gift card. Here is a selection that we found.
Superdrug Solait Sun Cream - buy one get one half price, so if you buy an SPF 50 for the kids at £4,49 and then an SPF 30 for you at £4.49, then you get them both for £6.73 plus triple points and a free gift of a cooling spray
