My Shopkicking Update - It Works!

Just a quick update to let you know how my Shopkicking is going.  Since it is the weekend and I was playing the waiting game yesterday before heading to work I walked around a few stores and was able to earn another Target gift card!  I earned enough points just walking into some key stores and scanning a few items to earn another $5 gift card and it really didn't require much effort on my part.

Before leaving the house yesterday morning I spent just a few minutes yesterday morning checking out my Shopkick app to see where the most points were available in my area.  After dropping my daughter off at work I drove about 1 mile down the road to a mall and I was able to hit a store that was offering 200 Shopkicks for just walking in the door!  A few steps away from that store there was another store in the mall that offered 50 Shopkicks.  500 Shopkicks gives you a $5 Target giftcard so I was halfway there after just about 3 minutes!

I then walked over to a strip mall where there were 3 other stores offering Shopkicks for just walking in their door and then additional Shopkicks for scanning items - one of which was scanning a printer that offered 100 Shopkicks.  By the end of the day I had earned 1,124 Shopkicks for just walking into stores and scanning items.  I didn't spend a dime!  That gave me the ability to get a $5 Target gift card that is now safely stored on my phone along with the $2 Target gift card that I earned the day before.

There are several other gift cards that are available through the Shopkick program other than the Target card.  You can earn gift cards from the following businesses:

TJ Maxx
JC Penney
Old Navy
Floral Shops
iTunes Cards
American Eagle
Best Buy
Toys R Us
Sports Authority
Papa Johns
Tiffany & Co.
Hyatt Hotels

Now my test was to see if Shopkick really worked and my plan is to build up a gift card to use for Christmas presents this year and ease the stress of this time of year.  Everyone can use a little less stress at Christmas, right?!!  I'm looking forward to that!

I don't typically go to the mall anymore so I was very disciplined in my visit there yesterday.  I didn't buy anything and just went in to get my Shopkicks and then headed right back out.  That felt so good!

Give it a try and let me know how it works for you.  I am having a lot of fun with it and I think you will too!

Happy Shopkicking!
