I do talk a lot about ways to save you money. It’s a passion of mine, sharing the tips and tricks I learn. Apps are a great way to earn. Today we’re going to talk about Shopkick which is a super simple way to earn.
Make Shopping More Fun & Rewarding With Shopkick
Shopping is a part of our daily lives. We buy food items, basic necessities, and even school and household items.
But if you add up all your expenses, you might be surprised at how much you spend on all this shopping. Believe it or not, shopping for food, household, and other necessary (and even unnecessary) items can cost more than your utility bills!
Here’s some good news: You can still save money while shopping in physical retail and on your online purchases!
You can use discount coupons and codes that will slash a considerable amount from your total bill. There are companies that offer free shipping, while there are others that give freebies and even BOGO deals on special items.
You can even earn rewards and get free gift cards by shopping — with Shopkick.

Love At First Use: My Experience
I had heard about Shopkick for years and even had the mobile app, but I hadn’t really spent any time using it. I was excited when they reached out and asked me to give it a go.
My husband and I headed over to Best Buy because we needed a soundbar for the living room TV, and there were several to choose from on Shopkick at Best Buy, so it was a perfect fit for our shopping trip.
Once we got there, we got 25 kicks for just walking in the door. There are lots of apps out there, but I don’t know any that do that. Then we were able to scan a few things around the store as we browsed on our way over to the sound bars and got, even more, kicks just for scanning them.
When we got to the sound bars, we looked at all the options available and scanned a few for kicks as we compared them all.
Once we compared them all and found the one we wanted, it was $99, but there was an open box one for $88. So we opted for that.
I headed to the checkout and wanted to see if anyone had it cheaper since Best Buy’s price matches. I did a quick Google search and found that Best Buy online had it for just $76! Then the cashier asked if I would prefer one that wasn’t an open box since it would be the same price. But the manager said: “Or I can just give it to you for $64.” SOLD! lol
So we were able to get the $99 sound bar for $64, plus we got plenty of kicks from walking in the store, scanning specific items, and the cashier scanned our Shopkick QR code right on my phone, and we got 64 kicks because we spent $64!
All in all, we did great with Shopkick – from that one trip, we got 130 kicks! Now that’s the best shopping experience you can ask for.
Shopkick allows you to start earning by walking into the store, scan items you wish to purchase, and using scan receipts. It’s a great way to save during online shopping and on your in store visits by linking your debit card and credit card.
If you’re still skeptical, this well-established rewards app will give you peace of mind because millions of Shopkickers have already earned and received more than $78 million in free gift cards from Amazon, Target, Walmart, Starbucks, Old Navy,and more.
If that doesn’t make you want to head to the app store, and download one of the best apps, I don’t know what will. You can even get bonus points to invite friends.
And it couldn’t be easier to get started. All you need is your phone number and email address to join.
Plus, earning reward points is easy.
Here’s how: Once you have downloaded the free app and registered an account, you can go into the settings at the top left of the screen, then go down to ADD PROMO CODE and apply code: PMM_DIAN
Note: Once the code is applied, you will have 7 days to go into a store and scan an item that is listed in the app (for the specific store) to receive your $5 bonus, in the form of 1250 kicks. Offer good for new Shopkick users only.
2. Browse through your favorite stores and grocery stores you can visit to earn Shopkick points through the “Earn Tab.” This tab is located at the bottom of the screen, next to the Discover and Invite tabs.
3. Once you’re in the “Earn Tab,” you can scroll through the list of the select partner stores and partner brands in the Shopkick app.
4. Tap on the store you want and indicate the different ways you want to earn kicks. You can choose Walk In, Scan, Submit your purchase receipt, and Linked Card.
Easy Ways To Earn Points
The most popular way the Shopkick app works is by walking into the selected store and scanning items.
But you can also earn kicks as soon as you walk into the store. Turn on the app and your phone’s Bluetooth to receive points once you’re near the store entrance. Now that doesn’t take much effort.

You don’t need to purchase items! Once you’re inside the store, you can browse items in the app and scan the items to get kicks. There are some items that provide a bonus video after the scan that you can watch to earn more points. When you purchase the selected items, you can submit your receipt for even more kicks.
Once you accumulate enough points, you can exchange them for gift cards from big stores and major retailers like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, TJ Maxx, and Target! The more kicks you have, the more gift cards you can get.
