How to redeem your shopping app rewards for gift cards to do even more shopping

When you love shopping as much as I do, it’s impossible to do too much shopping. In fact, the only things that limit my shopping are time and money; it sucks that you kind of need both to shop. There’s really no way to add an extra hour to the day—believe me, I’ve tried! But over the years, I have found some great ways to fuel my shopping habit.

The best way to save money without having to do less shopping is by using shopping app rewards—specifically, shopping app rewards that you can trade for gift cards so that you can do even more shopping. I’ve been able to do far more shopping thanks to shopping app rewards that I can trade for gift cards to use at many of my favorite stores. 

If you love shopping as much as I do, you’ll want to pay close attention while I tell you all about earning shopping app rewards.

How to Earn Shopping App Rewards

Download a Shopping Rewards App

In order to earn shopping app rewards, you need to use a shopping app that rewards. The majority of shopping apps reward you for shopping. However, there are a number of different types of shopping apps for passionate shoppers like us to choose from.

Here are a couple types of shopping apps that I prefer to use to earn rewards:


  • Store-branded shopping apps: These are apps that are offered by the store to enhance your shopping experience at their store and gain your loyalty. Apps like these include Starbucks, Target, and countless others.
  • Shopping rewards apps: This is my favorite type of shopping app because of its versatility. Since they aren’t branded to one store, I’m able to use at many of my favorite stores—even online—and still earn rewards. 


Get the Right Shopping App

This is actually why I like the shopping rewards app I mentioned above better than store-branded apps. Store-branded apps can only be used at one store. I absolutely love my Starbucks app, but it doesn’t help me when I shop at other places. The key is to find a shopping rewards app that you can use whenever you shop—both online and in stores. 

Use Shopkick to Earn Shopping App Rewards

At this point, you’re probably wondering which shopping app I recommend. Well, the answer is an app called Shopkick. The way Shopkick works is that it gives you points (called “kicks”) for walking into stores, scanning barcodes of participating products, and making purchases. You can even use Shopkick from the comfort of your home; open the app and shop directly at some of your favorite stores online. What I also love about Shopkick is that there’s a feature to link a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card to your Shopkick account and get kicks whenever you run a transaction as credit at participating stores; You don’t even have to log into the app to earn! 

When you earn enough kicks through Shopkick’s shopping app rewards, you can trade them in for gift cards, which you can then use to do more shopping. Shopkick turns every trip to the store into a fun scavenger hunt for points. It’s really great that way, both for savings and making shopping even more fun than it already is.

If you like shopping as much as I do, you’re probably looking for ways to do more shopping.
