Are you using shopkick to rack up shopping incentives you can trade for mobile gift cards? You should be! Because then you can stack your shopkick mobile gift cards with your SnipSnap mobile coupons. Today, 5/24, you can earn 200 walk-in kicks at 5 stores in the shopkick app: Target, American Eagle, Old Navy, Best Buy, and Macy’s. That’s 1,000 kicks in total, enough to immediately trade in for a $2 gift card to Target and (almost) enough for a $5 gift card to Macy’s.
Headed out to shop and collect some kicks this evening? Make sure you SnipSnap some store coupons to take with you. Check out this coupon I snipped today for 40% off everything in-store and online at American Eagle:
And this deal for an extra 15% off at Macy’s:
I love collecting kick while I’m out and about shopping. On days like today, I can earn enough to score a free drink at Starbucks and fuel my shopping spree for free! And you can’t beat 40% off at American Eagle. Summer Wardrobe: you’re about to get a whole lot bigger!
Are you a shopkicker? I am. Shopkick’s the interactive mobile shopping app that rewards you with gift cards and other incentives (hello, Coach bags) just to walk into your favorite stores and shop. (Read my more in-depth, original review of shopkick here and a more recent update here.) Have you heard about Shopkick’s “Black Friday 2” celebration? This Friday only, you can score 200 bonus Walk-in Kicks at stores like American Eagle, Aerie, Sony, Best Buy, Old Navy, and Macy’s. I’ve got 5 of these stores on my hit list tonight. Just for walking around the mall to cool down on a Friday night, I’ll earn just about enough kicks to trade for a free $5 card to Starbucks in the shopkick reward store. Hello, frappucino!
If you are heading out to do some Friday night shopkicking, don’t forget to do some simultaneous SnipSnapping. If you find something you want/need to buy while you’re racking up walk-in kicks, you can almost definitely find a coupon for it in the SnipSnap app. Check out these offer for Old Navy and Macy’s and make sure you follow me in the app and subscribe to my Mall coupon bundle. You’ll find coupons you can use at just about any store in the mall – whether it’s a part of shopkick’s Black Friday 2 celebration or not!
Shopkick is adding new store cards and lookbooks to shopkick 3.0.1 every day. (New to shopkick, the app that pays you to shop? Read my review here.) Today, I discovered the addition of West Elm, complete with 45 walk-in kicks and sparkly, festive lookbooks.
It’s really exciting to see shopkick add more stores like Urban Outfitters, DSW, Ulta, and Bath & Body Works. But those stores aren’t doing any real work yet for shopkickers, since they’re not offering any walk-in or item scan kicks. I’m waiting to see whether these stores are in a transition period toward kicks or not. It would only make sense for shopkick to make all participating stores walk-in kick worthy, since lookbooks without rewards are a pretty huge waste of space.
Regardless, since the release of the new, revamped shopkick, I’ve seen a lot of improvement in the number of kicks I can collect. Yesterday, I unlocked 300 walk-in kicks at Target. Today, I’m eligible for:
100 at Aerie
100 at Crate&Barrel
100 at American Eagle
100 at Macy’s
125 at Best Buy
That’s 525 kicks (about two dollars worth) I’ll earn just by strolling the mall.
