It’s almost time for Christmas. Everyone is out shopping trying to catch the best deals on the things that their loved ones has on their Christmas list. From toys to electronics to food. All of these things are taking money out of your pocket. I know that I have spent my fair share of money over the past few weeks.
The good thing is though that there are apps that can help you get at least some of that money back. I use a number of them. At this moment I have at least 4 apps on my phone that I can either get rebates for or earn points towards gift cards or cash. Just to name a few I have Receipt Hog, Ibotta, and Fetch. I love all of these apps but my all time favorite currently is Shopkick.
Shopkick is my favorite app to earn on right now because it is so easy to use. There are six ways that you can earn what is called kicks on this app
- Walk-Ins: The easiest way to earn kicks is to simply walk into a store. Go to the app before you walk into or walk by the store. Then you walk in. Once you walk in the Shopkick app will alert you to the fact that you earned walk-in kicks.
- Scans: This is actually my favorite way to earn kicks. Each store has a list of items that you can walk around the store and scan. You don’t have to purchase the item at all. You can just scan the items. The Husband and I have been doing this for the past few days. Let me tell you the points add up quickly. Especially in a store that has a bunch of the products.
- Receipt: If you decide to purchase one of the items that you scan you earn kicks. So not only do you get the kicks for scanning the item you can also upload your receipt and get more kicks.
- Connect your card: If you connect your card to your Shopkick app you can earn kicks for every dollar that you spend. This is great for many stores but especially electronic stores like Best Buy and Office Depot.
- Bundles: If you look at the top of each store listed you will see bundled items. If you buy everything in the bundle then you are able to pick up kicks that way and most times you are awarded bonus kicks as well. In order to get bundle points everything must be on one receipt and purchased at the same time.
- Online: Don’t worry if you are more of an online shopper you can earn kicks through online shopping as well. You simply click the kicks online tab and shop some of your favorite stores via the app. The only way you will earn kicks online is if you shop through the app. Just click the shop now button and off you go.
