Shopkick Aggregated Reviews
I use an app called Shopkick. It gives you points for walking into certain local stores, and scanning certain items (you get more if you buy them, but I only do that if it was something I was going to buy anyway).
It’s kinda fun, looking for all the items to scan is like a scavenger hunt. Points add up fairly quickly (faster than any survey app I’ve tried), and can be redeemed for Google Play/iTunes/Amazon gift cards, among other things.
I use Shopkick.
It has you go to certain stores in your area (normal stores like Walmart or Target) and scan certain items to show that you had a look at them. Sometimes you even get points just for walking into a store. The points can add up pretty quickly, and can be exchanged for different gift cards like Google Play, iTunes, and Amazon.
I use the Shopkick App but have kind of forgotten about it lately. You get “kicks” for walking into stores and you can scan products as well to earn extra. With as little as 500 kicks, you get a $2 giftcard.
But Shopkick has a bunch of different gift cards to choose from (including Google, iTunes, and Amazon), and you don’t have to take surveys. You just walk into stores on the list (a lot of them are stores you probably go to already, like Walmart, Target, and even some local grocery stores), and then you scan items the app wants you to look at. If you buy these items, you get even more points than you do for just visiting the store or scanning things. But even without buying anything, the points can add up pretty quickly.
Shopkick has you go visit certain stores (Walmart, Target, local grocery stores, etc). Sometimes you get points just for visiting the store, but the majority of your points will come from finding and scanning specific items listed in the app. Is kinda fun, like a scavenger hunt. You get points just for scanning the item to prove you had a look at it, but you get more if you actually buy it (I only ever buy stuff I was already planning to buy though).
I can earn at least $20-ish in a month from Shopkick if I really try, sometimes more. I definitely recommend it.
Shopkick works great when you want to buy online (via Ebates, etc with cash back card) then pickup in store to save on shipping.
You get points for walking in certain stores like target. You can also scan bar codes for items they ask for. Exchange the points for gift cards.
I’ve gotten fewer points lately since one of by local grocery stores stoped giving walk in points/kicks but the scans still work. But other stores still do. Might as well get “paid” to grocery shop!
Shopkick – ref | non-ref – gives you points for scanning stuff in-store, but if you buy the thing and submit the receipt it’s worth a lot more.
Fetch is an awesome receipt scanning app and doesn’t have a waiting list to my knowledge. You should also try Shopkicks. It’s awesome. I cashed out last September for $150.00 (from just under a year of points worth) to use for my son’s school shopping. Mind you I don’t get to kick when I have my husband and kids with me bc they can’t stand it so I can only do it when I’m out alone which doesn’t happen often. Also, I think about how much I make verse what I’m spending just to make that money. Like I won’t drive out of my way for apps, so I won’t spend a weekend driving around shopkicking bc am I really making a profit by doing that when I’m using my gas to get to all of these places? Wear and tear on my vehicle and such? Most likely not so I do it when I’m out driving by and have time or if I’m there or need to go there. There are people that will spend a weekend driving around to shopkick. Not me but I love shopkick, been using it since it first came out around 11 years ago. It’s changed a lot from when it started. But I’d definitely try those two, they are the easiest. Fetch is better than receipt hog but I do use both.
There are also apps that let you earn Google Play Gift Cards. They usually make you take surveys, try out apps, or other things. I use Shopkick, Mobile Performance Meter, Google Rewards, QuickThoughts, Swagbucks, and InboxDollars.
For me, Shopkick points seem to add up the fastest (I can get 1-3 $10 gift cards a month if I really work at it), but the others are all pretty slow by comparison. I redeem the gift cards in Google Play and use them to buy stuff in Love Nikki.
I highly recommend Shopkick if it’s available where you live. You get points just for visiting stores and scanning certain items (you get even more points if you actually buy the items, but I rarely do that unless it’s something I was going to buy anyway). It ends up giving me just enough to fund my Love Nikki spending habits.
Shopkick, points for walking into stores and scanning items = cash out for gift cards. So yes can be an effective use of a mall walk.
I’ll also plug shopkicks while I’m at it. Like Ibotta, you can receive reward points for making purchases, but they also have other options. Some stores have walk in points where you get points just for walking in the door. Hell, I’ve even picked some up just driving through the parking lot. They also have points for scanning items even if you don’t buy them. If you feel comfortable adding your debit card, some stories give a certain amount of points for every dollar you spend.
Shopkick is the application that pays you with PayPal Gift Card Free. You don’t need to buy anything to acquire gift vouchers through the Shopkick application. You essentially sign in when you enter select stores and procure kicks only to come into the store. You can likewise get kicks for buys or for filtering things in the store while you shop. They likewise have an area where you can acquire bonuses for shopping on the web
I use Google Play Rewards and Shopkick to try and muster up enough to get a gift card. They don’t give you much of anything for Google Play and you have to wait until they notify you when a new survey is out, but if you just want to spend a dollar or so on Nikki then it’s not too hard to get enough money. The surveys on there are usually just 1-2 questions and the majority will give you some money back.
Shopkick is a bit easier because you can go into any store listed and gather points from walking in the store (or just outside the entrance of a store), scanning items they have available for points, and shopping for specific items listed from the store. I rather easily gathered enough for a $10 Google Play card for Nikki, it just takes some motivation to go to different stores and scan things. It’s great if you go to grocery stores or Wal-Mart or Target pretty often.
I’ve started using an app called Shopkick, and instead of doing surveys, you get points for walking into stores and scanning items to show that you looked at them (you don’t even have to buy them, although you tend to get extra points of you do). It’s like a scavenger hunt, and it’s kinda fun. Points add up pretty quickly; I can get a $10 google play gift card in a couple of weeks if I’m really trying.
Shopkick also offers iTunes gift cards, so that may work for you! 🙂
Shopkick, walk into stores for kicks, and sometimes scan things for more kicks. you can also pare credit cards to the app and when you spend money at certain stores, you get kicks back. you can spend these kicks on Giftcards. At one point they added Google play to the list of GC’s available. Not sure if it’s still there.
Shopkick – scan product barcodes while shopping to earn points that turn into giftcards
Shopkick is the best. If you drive by a stripmall, just keep it open and you’ll get points without having to even enter the stores. I get the most from that. Ibotta is tricky because you have to buy the brands the app offers discounts for, which I don’t most of the time so that one seems slower for me. Shopkick rocks. I would try to get used to the app. It can be confusing but I love it now that I know how to work it.
I use the first three. I make the most money off Ibotta. Shopkick is stupid easy; just open the app and get your kicks. I don’t overly bother with scanning items. And I use receipt hog to just scan the receipts i already accumulated from grocery shopping with Ibotta.
Receipthog and Shopkick have been the most successful for me since receipthog takes literally any receipt and Shopkick lets you cash out without actually buying anything. The brands on Ibotta are too expensive for my budget, and the any brand offers aren’t enough to hit the cash out mark.
i like shopkick! the only issue is that not all receipts/items are eligible
ShopKick – Has a nice feature where when you enter a store on their list you get points (but only once every week or two). You can scan items in the store to get points. You can also scan items from receipts to get points (I’ve never bought anything they offer). It’s a slow earner but the ability to scan items in the store that you don’t even buy is unique to this app as well as the walk in bonus.
I’ve used shopkick on and off for a few years and Id say it’s worth it if you leave the house often or have a lot free time
I just started using shopkick it’s easy I bought two items which also had Ibotta cash back and cvs extra care bucks and I submitted my receipt on coinout and receipt hog. On it’s on it’s not worth it, but stacked yes. I just wish there was a thread on it
I do Shopkick when I exercise. I live near a bunch of the stores and bike or walk between them. I don’t do receipts. Just walk ins and scans. I average $35 a month. If I had to drive and use gas it wouldn’t be worth it. But the way I look at it, I get a monthly gift card for exercising.
Shopkick has been pretty decent as far as beermoney apps go. I’ve been trying to get more walking in, so I combine a little mallwalking with Shopkicking and do pretty well. You definitely have to have the time to go to all those stores, though.
My only problem is that I think some of the local stores think I’m a shoplifter. (Note: I’m not a shoplifter!) But I could see how they would think that: come in, touch some of the merchandise, and then leave quickly, and repeat this semi-often. I’ve gotten some serious death stares, and I’ve completely given up on trying to Shopkick at Best Buy because they customer service me so aggressively. I know nothing bad will probably happen as long as I’m not an actual shoplifter, but it’s still offputting.
I make a decent $15 a month on Shopkick. It definitely is worth it if you’re going to be out and about anyway. Best Buy is the WORST about it. I went maybe twice and got the same thing of employees following you and continually asking if you need help. I get it, it’s an electronic store and they probably get a lot of shop lifters. I also generally avoid a particular high end store at my local mall. I just stand right outside the door and get the walk-in points. Other than that most stores in my area don’t seem bothered. Walmart and Target are the best to get shopkicks at. My local grocery store too as I’m there with my cart shopping anyway so it doesn’t look suspicious plus I’m there so often the employees all know me by name. lol

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.1.2.2 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
