December is here and it’s high tide for the holiday shopping season. Time for bulky jackets, large crowds, and wandering aisles for gift-spiration.
While you’re out in stores, download the free Shopkick app on your iOS or Android phone and you’ll earn a free $3.50 cash bonus. In order to receive the $3.50, download the free app and earn your first “kicks” within 7 days.
You earn “kicks” or points for completing various fun and easy activities at the store: making purchases (hey, you were there for that reason anyway!), scanning an item’s barcode, or even for just checking in.
Participating stores can vary, but loads of well-known national retailers participate like Sam’s Club, Bed Bath & Beyond, Ulta Beauty, Petco, Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Best Buy, Walgreens and more.
In addition, you can also earn kicks with your phone right from the couch. Earn for watching sponsored content (videos that brands and retailers produce), checking out gift guides and ads, and learning about new products.
With Shopkick, you can also earn kicks for shopping online. For example, you may be able to earn 2-10 kicks, or more, for every dollar spent at a partner retailer like eBay, Walmart, or JCPenney. If you were already going to shop there anyway, getting kicks for it is a no-brainer.
What Can I Do with Kicks?
Once you’ve started earning kicks, visit the “Kicks Center” to see the different prizes and rewards. You can cash in your kicks for gift cards to over 40 different retailers.
Right now, I’ve banked over 1,000 kicks. (Don’t worry, they add up quickly. Most activities pay 10-50 kicks or more!) I’m hoarding them until I can cash out with a $100 Amazon gift card.
I am an employee of InboxDollars, but I am also a member and a wife and mom who loves finding cash savings hacks. Personally, I have downloaded dozens of apps that I’ve never even opened, let alone used. Shopkick is one of the few apps I truly find myself utilizing on a regular basis.
Go ahead. Earn your $3.50 from your mobile phone for giving it a try, and let us know what you think of Shopkick.
