If you know anything about me, you know I love two things: making money and saving money. So, when I hear about a way that allows me to earn money back on things I am already purchasing, I am completely on board!
And right now, I have a way you can get a Free $5 Gift Card to Amazon, Target, Starbucks or many more of your favorite stores. It’s easy and it only requires a few minutes of your time! So, lets get started.
You’ve likely heard me talk about ways you can earn cashback on your purchases made using your phone or computer and I have a new way for you to do just that. Introducing: Shopkick.
What is Shopkick?
Shopkick is an app you can download for free and earn what is called “kicks” to redeem for free gift cards on items you are already shopping for.
Basically, you just shop as normal and complete tasks in the app to earn kicks for free gift cards.
What are Kicks in Shopkick?
Shopkick uses their own currency, called “kicks.” It’s basically like points but with a fun name. These kicks are earned when users (people like you and I) perform certain in-store actions (like walking into stores, scanning items, and purchasing products) and purchases made online. When shopping online, users will earn kicks for every $1 spent (. Kicks then build up (sort of like a bank of points) and then can be redeemed for free gift cards.
Every 250 kicks = $1.
How Do You Earn Kicks?
Currently, there are 6 main ways you can earn Kicks while using the Shopkick app. These include:
Simply enable bluetooth and walk into participating stores to earn passive kicks. No purchase is required!
Use the camera on your phone to “scan” featured items in stores and get kicks per scan. Scanning adds a fun scavenger hunt-esque element to your shopping experience and it is a completely purchase-free way to earn kicks.
Purchase featured items and snap a photo of your receipt for elevated kicks. For example, scan an item for 25 kicks, but purchase the item for 250 kicks. This is a great option if you were already planning on purchasing that specific item.
One of the easy no-fuss ways to earn kicks is by linking your debit/credit card securely in-app. If paying with a debit card, make sure to run as ‘credit’ during checkout. At participating retailers, use your linked card to pay for your purchase and get kicks for every dollar you spend.
When shopping at participating stores through the Shopkick online tab, you will get kicks for every dollar you spend at said retailer. For example, if you shop at Target through Shopkick, you’ll earn kicks for your purchase. This is the best and easiest way to score kicks from the comfort of your home.
Finally, you can poke around in the Shopkick in-house curated Discover feed to find hidden kicks in our
pieces of content. You can earn kicks by watching videos. And the best part is, these kicks refresh daily!
What Free Gift Cards Can You Earn with Shopkick?
Shopkick offers a variety of free gift cards you can earn using your kicks. Gift cards are available to places like Starbucks, Target, Barnes & Noble, the Disney Store, Apple, Amazon, ULTA, Sephora, Best Buy and even PayPal.
Gift cards redemptions start at 500 kicks, but the minimum amount differs from retailer
