The last few weeks the coronavirus escalated exponentially across the globe. As  governments start to take extreme measures with mandatory quarantines, we're seeing the fear index climb to all time highs. In response, people have been rushing the grocery stores, buying as much food and toilet paper as they can.

It's difficult to say if this panic buying is necessary or whether we'll look back at laugh. Regardless, it's better to be safe than sorry.

At Redeeem, we've been thinking about how we can best help people during this global pandemic. Gift cards have a unique value in the market as they allow consumers to effectively loan money to retailers until the card is redeemed. For that reason we believe gift cards can help the recovery process.

Available grocery store gift cards at 0% fee

Starting today, and effective throughout the duration of the global Coronavirus outbreak, all Whole Foods, Walmart, Target, Starbucks and UberEats gift cards will have 0% commission fee so they sell faster and at better discounts.

We choose these cards because they are popular brands that people can buy and use to get enough food to feel safe during these trying times, either by going to the grocery store or by ordering delivery.

First, create a "Buyer Ad" so gift card sellers can see what's in demand, and they can upload those gift cards. Your ad will stay up for 24 hours so make sure to check in and add another ad in the future.
