Buying a new Lawnmover by saving money using the Zeek App. We’ve had our lawnmower for eight years but it had its final mow last week. During that fateful mow, the cable began sparking and it burnt out! So we’ve been looking for a new lawnmower and whenever we have regular or one-off purchases, we do like to take a look at zeek.me to see if there are any vouchers that we can purchase to save money.
Zeek allows you to buy e-vouchers or physical vouchers at a discount. They also allow you to sell vouchers on their marketplace but we’ve not used this feature. You can access Zeek from the website or the app is free to download from iTunes and Google Play. We’ve been buying gift vouchers from them for over a year now. Some of the top brands that we’ve bought vouchers for include Tesco, Halfords, Starbucks and Cineworld. Also not forgetting Hungry House e-vouchers for our Saturday takeaway meal! Occasionally Hungry Horse themselves offer a 20% off promotion and we will buy the voucher for Hungry Horse to save even more!
Depending on the deals; you can either buy e-vouchers or paper vouchers. The savings could be anything from 1% up to 28%. You can use PayPal to pay for your voucher. If it is an e-voucher, you will be able to access it immediately via the wallet.
For our lawnmower, we decided to buy it from Argos. Argos have a great range of lawnmowers and have a cordless one that we like. Once we decided what we wanted and where we wanted to buy it from, I went to the zeek.me and filtered the brands for “Home and Garden” and “Use In-Store” and found it immediately. We bought £175 of vouchers and only paid £168, saving £7 or 4%. This is a great little saving for very little effort! On this occasion, the physical vouchers worked for us. However, if we bought e-vouchers, we could try to maximise the saving by going through a cashback website too.
In addition to these one-off purchases, we do look for vouchers for more regular purchases like Tesco, Starbucks, Pizza Express and WH Smith. For us, it’s a great way to save a few pounds here and there for everyday items that we would buy anyway.
So what is your saving secret?
