This is a MUST HAVE app.
End of story.
If you live in a major city, immediately delete all your Mobile Apps, and install this one.
shopkick is my all time favorite, hands down.
As soon as I walk out the door and begin my wanderings through Boston, this App is turned on. Just by elbowing my way thru tourists looking for the Freedom trail and walking into my favorite stores, I can score deals and rewards. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it works. You’re going there anyway…so hell yeah, why not get rewarded for it? It’s a check-in App that does all the work for you.
There are loads of ways to score with this App. Thru some kind of Star Trekish signal in your mobile phone, the App picks up on where you are and allows you to score points & rewards (Kicks and Kickbucks). Yeah…it’s a little Big Brother, I know. But when Big Brother gives me FREE Best Buy gift cards…well, he can climb a ladder, look in my bedroom window and put the pictures on Facebook, thank you very much.
Walk into a selected store. Get Kicks.
Check into a store on the list. Get more Kicks.
Scan promoted items. Get even more Kicks.
Redeem the Kicks for some very DanCool stuff. iTunes cards, store gift cards and other things that will bring out your greedy side. The whole process is dumbed down, too. Once you qualify for the rewards, they show up on your phone. Show the code to the cashier and BAM!…they are filling a shopping bag with free loot. The hardest part of the process is handing over my shiny iPhone for the transaction. Nobody touches my baby.
You can check my W2. I’m not employed by their marketing department. The App just works. And I have a couple Benjamins worth of Best Buy stash to back it up.
Major cities are on board, with many more to come. Loads of retail outlets are included, and new ones seem to show up every time I turn the thing on. Check out their site and see if your city or stores are on the list. Then put this on your phone.
Then buy me something.
