Get Loyalty Points Across Retailers With Shopkick App

While its great to get the perks bestowed onto loyal customers, sometimes its just not worth the real estate in your wallet to join another store’s loyalty program.

To help you get credit for shopping and avoid jamming up your purse, Shopkick has created an app that lets you get loyalty points across retailers in one app. The app is partners with major retailers including Target, Macy’s, Best Buy, Crate&Barrel, Old Navy, Toys”R”Us, Exxon and Mobi, among others.

Shoppers can show their phone at the cash register in order to receive “kicks” which is Shopkick’s rewards system. The kicks are redeemable for  free coffees, gift cards, and iTunes credits.

The app is free and available for iOS and Android devices. The holiday shopping season is almost here!
