“ Consumer reward site. „
Zee Sweets is now found at http://www.uk.zeepoints.com/.
Zee sweets is another of the famous consumer reward sites where you can cash in points for lots of different items even cash!
I first came across this website when I was looking for survey sites on money saving expert. When I first saw the website I though it was all about sweets but they I realised there is a lot more to it!
This site is free to register, they will send you a confirmation email after you register and off you go. You can start to earn points as soon as you confirm but the points you will get go into tracking. After 2/3 days these go into the pending section and it can take up to 60 days for these points to be confirmed which is a little annoying.
How does you get the points?
The site offers 4 parts of daily clicks which can earn you up to 60 points for each. You can also look at the offers they have. Sometimes you can earn anything up to 200 points for registering for survey/competitions! You can also earn points when you shop. 1p=1 point!
What are the rewards?
You can redeem your points for cash. £20.00 through PayPal is 2000 points which I think are quite easy to get. You can also use points on Amazon and lots of websites!
How is it free?
To be honest, I think the reason why it is free is not only because they get paid from firms for advertising and other bits but consumers would probably not be prepared to pay.
The website is very easy to navigate around. You can look through your account and see where you have earned all your points. The categories are all clearly listed alphabetically which makes it so easy to use!
You can contact the team 24/7 by email and phone but they do not respond to emails- I have found out!
This is a good website and a good little earner! Except from the fact that your points can remain pending for around 2 months but stick at it and you can redeem a lot of cash! 4/5!
I am real happy with Zee Sweets! I have just got my freebie, it was a box of chocolates. The site has 24/7 support and I well just love them :)I suggest everyone joint them!
Zee sweets is a 50% cashback site that pays in sweets or paypal.
Why anyone would choose this above all the 100% cashback sites is beyond me. I suppose it might appeal to a young teenager (as their CEO is 17) or otherwise who likes their sites to be "edgy" but I would rather a site where I don't get called "they will spend the rest of their lives eating microwave meals for one and the only person to attend their funerals will be the vicar" from the moderators.
I have found them to be too lax with semi personal details such as IP addresses for my liking.
They have a small amount of very loyal followers, and I feel that this can mean that it can be hard to get a non positive opinion across.
Since originally posting this review I have been contacted on the email address that I registered with them asking me to change the review in exchange for £5 in my paypal account.
The site desgin is poor, and I found it difficult to ascertain exactly what you will be recieving before signing up.
Overall, I just think there is so much choice, and these don't compete.
However... they do have a unique daily clicks system, which makes it all so much easier.
Editited to add a note on the freebie giveaway-
Zee sweets ran a promotion whereby they would give everyone who signed up some free stuff- on offer were ipods, sweets, and paypal cash.
According to their own administrator, on their public forum, they recieved 60,000 requests for these freebies and sent out £2,000 via paypal and 3,000 parcels.
If the paypal people got £1 each that leaves a deficit of 55,000 people who would have recieved nothing at all.
But, actually it is less than that as (again going on publicily available info here) 1,200 parcels were returned to them due to insufficent postage, and various amounts were given via paypal.
I'm sorry, but in my opinion that makes them a joke.
Hmm. Well what can I say? I came across Zee Sweets on MSE and decided that I had to join (I mean who can turn down free sweets?) and I'm glad I did.
Zee Sweets is a cashback site unlike any other. Rather than earning money per offer/daily click you do, you earn points instead. As soon as you join up, you receive 100 free points, and you need 500 minimum points to cash out. Rewards include: Paypal, sweets, big gifts like nintendo wii, day experiences, mystery prizes etc. so there is a wide selection to choose from.
Earning your points is pretty simple. They have lots of daily clicks and it's so easy to rack up your points quickly. For example, buy central is 3 points per search and you can do a maximum of 10 per day, meaning each day you can make 30 points from buy central alone. Pretty cool if you ask me. The points don't take that long to get validated and next thing you know, you have the minimum (500) needed to order some stuff like £5 paypal, a mystery gift, or even some sweets. I ordered my first £5 into my paypal and received it the very next day. I don't know about you, but that has got to be the most swift transaction I've ever experienced.
Customer service has always been ace on this site. Whenever I need help, I always contact the boss, and he helps me straight away. It's not like other sites, in that it's customer service is probably second to none. The forum is pretty cool too, and the boss is always making an effort to ensure that the site is as perfect as it could be, adding on new offers, increasing the points and daily clicks, making us (the users) very happy.
