Want to earn money while you shop? If so, you’re going to love the rewards you earn when you shop with Shopkick!
If you could earn money for shopping you already do, why wouldn’t you? Shopkick makes it super easy and now I’m wondering what took me so long to start using it. I’m totally loving this app and how it makes shopping even more fun!
What Is Shopkick
Shopkick is a shopping app that lets you earn free gift cards just by doing something you’re going to do anyway…shop. You earn rewards points (or “kicks”) by shopping in store and online. Once you’ve collected a certain number of kicks, you trade them in for gift cards to your favorite stores. Millions of Shopkickers have collectively earned over $85 million in gift cards for Target, Amazon, Walmart, Starbucks and more.
It costs nothing to use Shopkick. Brands and retailers pay Shopkick in exchange for rewarding us to visit their stores and shop for select products. It’s a win/win for everyone!
Bonus: Get $5 Just For Downloading
Download Shopkick and do a scan within 7 days and Shopkick will give you $5 for free! Just go to the settings at the top left, find ADD PROMO CODE and enter PMM_Lisa. Then when you go into a store in the next seven days, scan one of the items listed in the app for that store. Shopkick will give you $5 in the form of 1250 kicks. Easy money, right?
How To Get Started With Shopkick
Getting started is simple. Just go to the App Store or Google Play and look for Shopkick. Download the app to your smartphone and you’re good to go.
When I took a shopping trip to Target, the app popped up on my phone as soon as we arrived. The cool part was that I earned 10 kicks just for walking into the store. It’s almost like getting free money…how fun is that?!
The app also alerted me to deals that I might be interested in.
Now it was time to shop. My first stop was the kitchen department. I’m drawn to this department like a moth to a light bulb (which drives my kids a little crazy). There are always SO many things I want in this department!
Of course, when the kids are tagging along, we’ve got to swing by the toy department.
I wasn’t planning to shop for clothes but the app told me that they had some great collections. It wouldn’t hurt to look, right?
We bought a few things and took our stash home. Most of the stuff I bought was practical…a bin for the cat food, items for an upcoming trip overseas and more paper for my printer because my kids keep stealing it to use for their artwork.
I did get one thing just for fun. This adorable dress was only $20…how could I NOT get it?!
How Do Earn Cash Back With Shopkick
There are several ways you can get cash back with Shopkick. For starters, you get kicks just for walking in the store. It doesn’t get much easier than that! Other ways to earn money are:
- Scan barcodes on select products
- Make a purchase and submit a receipt
- Purchase items with a linked card
- Make purchases online
- Watch videos (how cool is that!)
Once you’ve reached a certain amount, you can use your kicks towards a gift card. There are so many stores to choose from, the only hard part will be deciding which one! They offer gift cards for stores like Target, Amazon and Walmart but also places like AMC theaters, Sephora, Lowes and even Ebay.
That means you can by all the cute dresses you want because you’ll get rewarded for it in the end!
