How to start peeqing
Make online shopping fun again and download the sneakpeeq app on Facebook. Here’s how it works:
- Social peeqing: Sign up for sneakpeeq via Facebook Connect and immediately discover fabulous new and in-season finds in fashion, cosmetics and more and share your discoveries with your friends.
- The peeqing game: Click the peeq button when a particular item catches your eye to reveal a new low price. Each time a person clicks on the peeq button the price goes down, so the more you and your friends peeq, the better your chances of scoring a fantastic deal. You get 15 seconds to decide if you want to purchase your sneakpeeq find and can see who else is looking at that item via live updates.
- Peeq rewards: As soon as you sign up for sneakpeeq you get 10 peeqs to use towards a peeq purchase. sneakpeeqers get 10 peeq points daily and they last for 24 hours. The more friends you get on sneakpeeq and the more you peeq for yourself, the higher your status. The status level you achieve on sneakpeeq determines the number of additional peeqs you get plus access to exclusive products, fee shipping and more.
