Earn £5 M&S Vouchers this half term, by doing something good!
As any parent will tell you, they always seem to have items that their children have outgrown or no longer need that they would like to see go to a good home. Now parents can turn their kid's unwanted items into a £5 M&S voucher.
The new community based website www.mygyko.com which enables parents to sell, swap or giveaway to other parents is offering a £5 M&S voucher when they list 5 items on the site by the 31st October.
The ethos behind the GYKO site is to build on existing local community spirit. The site provides parents with a simple easy to use, safe and friendly way of trading the items their children have now outgrown with other families living in their area.
What is unique about the website is that it puts parents with children at the same school, sports club or uniformed organisation(s) in touch with one another and allows them to buy, sell, swap or give away items.
The GYKO site enables the informal school gate agreements that often exist between small circles of friends to be widened up to a larger community.
By conducting transactions via the school and sports club you don’t have to advertise your address to strangers who then collect items from your home. Nor do you have to incur postage charges.
Parents who are looking for ways to earn some extra cash will find this an ideal place to sell outgrown uniforms and sport kits that are filling up their cupboards and garages.
With the added incentive of earning a £5 voucher for listings made by the end of October, this half term is the perfect time for parents to de-clutter and sort out the items that their children no longer require.
The site is free to use for both the parents listing items and the parents acquiring items.
GYKO is a site that puts community and parents first as opposed to profit and commercialism – something that can only be beneficial to everyone.
