Today is a great day to walk-in to Target if you've got the Shopkick app installed on your smartphone because today, 6/13/12 only, you'll get 300 kicks for a Target walk-in! A Target walk-in will normally give you just 60 kicks, so make sure you head over to Target today to quintuple your walk-in kicks.
What is ShopKick? I'm so glad you asked. Only my current favorite smartphone app.
Now, here's an even faster way to get Shopkick on your phone, and get a 50 kicks bonus to boot. Click here through my special link (and thanks for letting me refer you), and fill out the short form. Shopkick will text the link to their (free) app directly to your smartphone. Just click on the link in the text and it will download and install on your phone. You'll get an instant 50 kickbucks just for signing up through my referral link. Gift cards start at 500 kickbucks, so when you refer nine more of your friends, you'll qualify for a gift card immediately. I love this app.
So back to today's hot promo. If you're installing Shopkick for the first time today, make sure you walk in to a Target store today, because you'll snag 300 kicks just for walking in! What a way to start a points program! Gift card redemption starts at 500 points, so between the 300 for the Target walk-in and the 50 points for signing up, you'll be 70% of the way toward a free gift card on your very first day using the app!
Using Shopkick is pretty intuitive, but for more info on how to navigate through it and earn kicks, check out my Shopkick tutorial here.
One of the new features of Shopkick is being able to gift your friends with points (it's one of the "Instant Surprises"). Lately, I've been getting a ton of the these "gifts" to give away and I can give them to an unlimited amount of friends. If you would like to get on my list of Shopkick gift recipients, I'd be happy to include you. All you have to do is Like the Daily Cheapskate page on Facebook, and subscribe to the once-daily Daily Cheapskate email digest. Then send your email address to me with the words "Shopkick gift list" in the subject line, and I'll be happy to include you on my Gift List. You'll receive free kicks each time I get the opportunity to send a Shopkick gift.
