How I Make/Save Money with my Phone

Aren't cell phones amazing?! They are basically tiny little computers that fit in our skinny jeans and save us money!

I thought it might be a good idea to share a couple of my favorite apps that are super simple and have saved, even earned, me money.

My favorite money making app is Shopkick.

All you do is open the app when you walk in certain stores such as Target (where we all shop), JcPenny, Best Buy, Wal-Mart and more. When you open the app you typically get anywhere from 30 to 100 kicks (sometimes even 200). In some stores you can scan certain products to get you additional kicks. Many times these range from 10 to 100 kicks per scan. Once you have accumulated enough kicks you can cash them in for gift cards. Using Target as an example: you can cash in as few as 500 kicks for a $2 gift card or 6250 kicks for a $25 gift card.

I have earned a total of 14,500 kicks which is equal to over $50 in gift cards. I have cashed in enough of my kicks to equal $35 worth of gift cards at JcPenny and currently have 5,750 kicks I can use whenever I want. The gift cards are codes that pop up almost instantly on your phone when you redeem them. You show the cashier the code which they enter as a gift card and ta-dah, free stuff!

How cool is that?

I'll do a follow up post to discuss a couple of the other apps I use to save money. What are your favorite money saving apps? Tell me in the comments below.

Enjoy and happy Shopkicking!

  1. I'm gonna need you to prove that this isn't a scam somehow! But seriously, this sounds super cool! Any idea what benefit the app gets in order to give you points for gift cards? Or is it like a marketing thing to get you in the door?

    1. It is super awesome, I promise! Whenever you scan products in the store it pops up with a couple questions it want's you to answer "did you buy the product?" "would you buy the product?" "have you heard of the product?" etc. So basically it's advertising for the product you scanned and I assume that's who paid for the free stuff we get. Anyways, you can click the little "x" in the top of questions page and not answer any of them and you still get your points :) Download it and do it! Blackfriday my mom and I got like 800 points just for walking into stores! My goal was to save them all up until the end of the year and then cash them in for Christmas shopping :)

  2. Whatsapp calling is not free as you think it is, so hold your horses and hear out the issues before you go on with your calls. Monitor Facebook Page Comments


I love comments and will do my very best to get back with you!
