We started Zeek because we hate seeing good money go to waste.
We’ve all had the experience of slipping a gift card away to use later, only to forget all about it until after it expired. It’s incredibly frustrating.
It turns out that there’s a lot of wasted money in gift cards (as much as $65 billion each year), so we decided to do something about it. In 2015, we launched the Zeek marketplace as a secure and reliable way to get unwanted gift cards into the hands of people who would use them.
Using the Zeek website and app, people who have gift cards they’ll never use can sell them at a small discount, rescuing money they would otherwise have lost. On the other hand, savvy shoppers can save on their favourite brands by snapping them up at a discount to use for their own spending.
The idea proved a bigger hit than we could have predicted. People were looking for new ways to make their money go further, and by reimagining gift cards as retail currency, Zeek struck a chord.
Since then, things have moved quickly. While our peer-to-peer marketplace is still at the heart of what we do, we now work directly with more than 100 major retail brands to bring Zeek shoppers great discounts all year round.
With thriving marketplaces in the UK and Germany, and big plans for the future, our goal is to be the ultimate money-saving tool for savvy shoppers around the world, all by using the humble gift card in an unexpected way.
