I know I've talked on this forum elsewhere about my former Starbucks habit. We used to go several times a week. Ah, those were the days! Now that I've changed jobs and am chasing my dreams, we've had to cut back a bit, so naturally Starbucks was the first thing to go. I've found ways to soften the blow by making Starbucks-like drinks at home, but honestly, every now and then it sure is nice to go to a genuine Starbucks and have a treat. Consistently, about every three weeks, our three-person family is able to go out for a treat on the $15 Starbucks reward I get from using ShopKick. ShopKick is an app I have installed on my iPhone. I see that it's also available for Android users as well. It's super easy and fun to use...Open the ShopKick app when you arrive at a store on their list. Be sure you have your Bluetooth on, or it won't register.Some stores give you more "kicks" for scanning certain items, like a scavenger huntOnce you have enough "kicks," you can cash them in for rewards. I generally get my Starbucks gift card instantly after I redeem my kicks. Most of my kicks come from Walmart, where I generally do my grocery shopping. Usually I get 30 kicks just for walking in the door, and then I'll get about 25 kicks per item whose barcode I scan while I'm there. Most trips to Walmart I can get 200-300 kicks easily, more if I'm not in a hurry. Other stores at this time include: Staples, Jcpenney, CVS, Costco, Home Goods, Best Buy, TJ Maxx, Carters, Old Navy, Target, Sports Authority, and Albertsons. All of these stores give you kicks just for walking in, and some have the scavenger hunt kicks in addition. If you're a mall walker, you could really make a killing with this app. The Starbucks card is $5 for 1250 kicks, $10 for 2500, and $25 for 6250. After you redeem your kicks, go to the "My rewards" section of the app to see the virtual gift card numbers. I like to import the gift card into my Starbucks app so that I get the perks from the Starbucks app as well. Other rewards include: Target, Macy's, TX Maxx/Marshalls/HomeGoods, JC Penney, Old Navy, iTunes, Best Buy, Red Box, and other stuff. Anyway, it's a great app. Check it out!
