A very lovely reader asked me this week if I’d tried the ShopKick app. This reminded me that I’ve been meaning to write about ShopKick for months now! Shame on me.
Anyway, what’s ShopKick, you ask? It’s actually pretty cool. It’s a GPS-based shopping app that allows you to earn points (or kicks, as they call them) as you shop. It’s available for iPhone and Android (I use mine on my fancy new Galaxy Nexus! Which takes screenshots! See below… haha)
So, how do you earn kicks? Walk into a participating store, launch the app, and watch as a cute little stick figure dances in celebration of your newly earned kicks. Scan eligible products while you’re in the store and earn even more kicks. Find instant rewards and earn even MORE kicks! Log in and check for rewards wherever you go – home, work, on the road (while you’re in the passenger seat, of course).
And the best part is… it really does add up! In my first couple of weeks, I earned two $5 gift cards to Target! You could also choose Best Buy, American Eagle, Macy’s, Sports Authority, Toys R Us, and much more. If you’re feeling extra spunky, save up your kicks for a cruise. Yes, really.
If you need to sign up, you’ll earn extra kicks if you use a referral link! Here’s mine: http://get.shopkick.com/malibu1086
Have you used ShopKick? What do you think?
