Dear fellow Shopkickers, I have noticed that not all store signals are created equal. Certain stores broadcast their signal so strong, I get my pts b4 I even get to the store. I wish they all would boost their signal. Also, iPhones seem to get the signal better. No worries, I love Shopkick & will keep on telling everyone that they need to try it to!
It's like a scavenger hunt. You have to go around and find certain items to scan. Often while in walmart I find someone else doing the same thing I am. I'm told the gift cards are easy to redeem but I haven't done that yet so we will see. If you like to shop this is a great app.
Won't make you rich any time soon, but easy to use and doesn't require too much of a time (or storage space) investment. Crash issues I was having on older versions seem to have been resolved - now generally runs smoothly and seamlessly. It's pretty easy to make a few pennies here and there, and if you shop (and/or buy) a lot at the participating retailers, the earnings can add up pretty quickly. This past year I earned ~$50 in gift cards through the app with what I'd consider pretty minimal effort.
I provided a previous review, with a 3 star rating due to some issues with walk ins, but they have been resolved to my satisfaction. Even with the recommendations that Shopkick provided (bluetooth, data and location on, restarting the phone and uninstalling and reinstalling the app), the walk ins were not working at some stores. I believe that it was my phone that was not capturing the signal or the signal improved. Anyways, I'm very happy. In less than a year, I already got $300 in gift cards. I wish they could add more stores for rewards and the option of cashing out via Paypal, even if they need to raise the kicks a little bit to cover paypal fees. Thanks.
Love the app. Although for some reason it keeps showing a 1 next to the app on my phone and I have clicked on everything. It never used to do that unless there were new deals or something and after I would click them it would go away. For some reason it won't go away and I have tried everything even uninstalling and reinstalling.
Its a nice app and fun if you have time to do scans. however, it only seems to work for one location per chain per city. As an example, my city has four Walmarts, but the app will ONLY work at the biggest Walmart in town and Shopkick has no plans to add the other locations to the app. If I want to get my kicks for Walmart, I have to go to the one furthest from me. Same with the local grocery chain (HEB). This is a definite drawback.
