When it comes to saving money, it can get stressful. Recently I found an app called Shopkick that helps keep me on my toes. Not only do I buy products that I need, but I am constantly rewarded for all the purchases I make. It has made shopping a little less guilty and a lot more fun.
Shopkick is available on iOS and Android. The best thing is that anyone can download it and it’s completely free. Right now, InboxDollars members get a $3.50 cash bonus when they download the free app and earn their first “kicks.” You must earn your first kicks within 7 days of installing in order to receive your reward.
What is Shopkick?
Shopkick is a shopping app that rewards you for visiting stores and making everyday purchases. You can earn rewards by walking into stores, scanning products and receipts, or linking your card for online purchases.
Shopkick rewards you with what they call “kicks.” Over time, as you accumulate enough “kicks,” you can redeem them for gift cards to stores like Target, Best Buy, Marshalls, Starbucks, and more. Think of it as a point system, the more points you rack up, the higher your reward. Currently, it takes 1,250 kicks for a $5 dollar gift card.
This may seem like a lot, but points add up quickly! Don’t forget that you don’t need to purchase anything to get kicks either!
