Shopkick is a mobile app which claims to make your shopping experience even better by giving their customers the ability to earn points that they can then place toward rewards offered by their partner retailers.
Similar to mobile applications like Foursquare and CheckPoints, Shopkick is a shopping rewards program that wants to simplify and amplify the rewards program experience, with no cards, no confusing rules, and no extra steps.
Shopkick.com says their app is one of the five most widely used shopping applications in the country, partnered with over 7000 stores in America like Target and Best Buy, with over 3 million people who have used it so far and “thousands more” joining each month.
This application works by letting you rack up points called “kicks” each time you simply walk into one of their partner stores – no purchase necessary. You can also receive kicks for scans of items the store wants to share with you, as well as link your Visa or MasterCard to application and receive even more kicks when complete a purchase.
The newest version of the app – Shopkick 3.0 – also has new features to help you earn kicks faster than ever. The stores that you shop at will provide mobile lookbooks through their application, which will show you the newest items at each store for which you can earn points.
The other new feature they offer is a location based maps feature; this will chart your current location and let you know all the stores around you which are currently offering kicks, and you can just walk right in to earn them.
Finally, you can choose your reward from their rewards mall and then use the app to track how many kicks you have earned toward your reward, and how many you still need. And you can change your chosen reward at any time – your decision isn’t locked in until you decide to officially redeem your kicks.
