It’s our birthday and you’re all invited to celebrate

This Saturday we turn 3 years old; to celebrate we are launching a week full of competitions and giveaways.

To start we’re looking to find the weirdest item on your bookshelf or CD/DVD collection. It could be anything from Dolly Parton to S-Club 7. We have a few examples of some weird items we have found around our HQ.

We are three

 

All you need to do is upload a photo of yourself and your weird find to our Facebook wall or Twitter mention using the hashtag #LookWhatIFound or alternatively you can email your entry to competition@ziffit.com and we’ll send out a movie night-in hamper to 3 lucky winners.

Full terms and conditions here.

Hurry, the competition closes on Sunday 5th June! Winners will be announced on Wednesday 8th June.


Fun facts about Ziffit.com

Here at Ziffit we have received 1470 tonnes in the three years we have been in operation that equates to the total weight of 210 African Elephants and 294 Asian Elephants! I don’t think our warehouse would hold that many elephants at all!

Since we opened in 2013 we have seen over 7 million items come through our website!

First item ever traded:

Richard Exley – Grandmas and Grandpas (Book). This little read features some charming stories told from children about their Grandparents.

Most popular CD/DVD/Book and game we have received:

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (DVD) – wonder what Captain Jack Sparrow would think of that?

iPad Air #WinwithZiffit Competition Finalists

iPadAir-FacebookSo, a little later than scheduled, we have 5 fantastic finalists for the Ziffit iPad Air competition.

Rather than us simply making the choice on your behalf, we want you to get involved and pick your favourite. The most democratic way we know how to do so is to simply let you vote by liking or sharing the image on our Facebook page, as well as sharing on Twitter. That way we can keep our beady eyes on what is going on, plus it’s firmly in the public domain.

Without further ado, here are the finalists:

 

Julie1x400

Entry from Julie B

Rebecca4x400

From Rebecca

Amandeep2x400

From Amandeep

Gareth3x400

From Gareth

Lorraine5x400

From Lorraine

To get involved, just head over to our Facebook page and like the corresponding image on our timeline. Leave a comment too, telling us why it’s your favourite. Whilst it is a bit of fun, one of the finalists will be receiving a fantastic iPad Air come midday on Monday 25th November – so choose wisely.

The only rule we have is that you can’t buy likes or any other shenanigans. If there is some vote rigging, we will have to disqualify the image – and no sabotage either, let’s play nicely and fairly.

Leave a comment, get in touch, share, like and be social. Apologies also for the delay in finalising the final finalists, some slight technical issues with, well, me. But we’re back up and running, same rules, just Wednesday to Monday. All pictures were received by the closing date too, so no late entries have snuck in.

Thank you to everyone who sent in pictures and sorry you couldn’t all be winners. It was a fantastic response and some brilliant photos arrived at Ziffit HQ – making the shortlisting process very difficult indeed.

There will be more competitions soon, so keep checking back, but for now it’s over to Julie, Amandeep, Gareth, Lorraine and Rebecca to decide an ultimate winner.

Good luck!

Win an iPad Air with Ziffit

iPadAir-FacebookTo celebrate the launch of the Ziffit app, we are giving away the equally new and almost as exciting iPad Air to one lucky customer.

Yep, not your bog standard iPad, or a knock-off imitation. THE iPad Air; the actual lighter, brighter, smarter (presumably) iPad Air, as launched today. It could be yours and all for the cost of a single photograph.

So how can you win?

We want to test your creative skills. So, to enter, just take a photo demonstrating why you should win the iPad Air.

Following the Don’t just wish it, Ziffit’ TV campaign, we want to give you a chance to wish it and win it with Ziffit. Be creative, be funny, be heartfelt, be unusual (be clean) – we’ll leave it to your interpretation. Just ensure that there is a reference to Ziffit in there somewhere – logo, “Z”, App, Worthing Thunder, your choice.

Rules

It’s nice and simple:

1) Take a picture
2) Include the Ziffit logo, a subtle ‘Z’ or anything Ziffity
3) Post it online and share it with us and/or send it to us at offers@ziffit.com
4) Make sure you enter by midday on Friday November 15th
5)  Oh, and it is open to those in the UK only, just for simplicity’s sake

Then, come Friday 15th, we will create a shortlist of 5 fantastic entries and let the public decide a winner through a simple vote. That’s about as democratic as it gets.

So let us know using the hashtag #winwithziffit, share it with us on Facebook, get it out there on instagram, Google+ or just email (offers@ziffit.com) – whatever you prefer. We will be compiling our shortlist at the close of the competition, so don’t forget to share with friends and get a few endorsements.

You can enter more than once, but it is certainly quality over quantity. Beware, we may also share them on the blog and all over the social universe, so be prepared for a little publicity.

About the App

Home AppCompleting a trade has never been easier, and on the lightweight iPad Air, you can Ziffit whenever and wherever you choose. Just scan in your items using the on-board camera and get your instant quote. You can complete it all through your iPhone, iPad or any other iOS device, so no need to jump back to your desktop to complete trades.

It’s free to download and you can scan barcodes without even signing in, so no pressure to accept quotes or complete trades. Give it a go and let us know what you think.

Best of luck to everyone and we look forward to seeing your pictures.
