Celebrate Scavenger Hunt Day with Shopkick

What was your favorite book when you were growing up? If you’re like us, Roald Dahl’s classic “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” likely topped your book list. Willy Wonka’s world of wonder and chocolate and colorful candy was one we wanted to inhabit. And, who didn’t dream of finding a golden ticket? Well, your dream may become a reality because golden tickets and millions of kicks will be up for grabs next week!

Monday, May 24 is National Scavenger Hunt Day, and Shopkick is celebrating the best way we know how – with a week-long scavenger hunt filled with nostalgia and plenty of kicks! We’re launching a scan mission at Walmart stores throughout the country where you can scan a select grouping of products in order to earn 100 bonus kicks. 

But, there’s more! 

(Because, of course there is.)

To give you even more of an incentive to go on your own scavenger hunt in honor of National Scavenger Hunt Day, allow us to unveil the biggest news of all…

We’re hiding a limited number of Shopkick golden tickets in stores throughout the country worth $500 in kicks (each)! Your job is to find one and mail it in by May 31 to receive your prize! 

We aren’t sharing the locations (what kind of scavenger hunt would!?), but we can share a few hints. One city is located in Colorado, another is in Florida, and one more is in Florida…!

So, what are you waiting for? Get your search on!

P.S: If you’re looking for even more chances to win kicks, we’re also giving away 35,000 kicks to select Shopkickers who share their Shopkick Scavenger Hunt journey! Simply snap a photo or video of you (and your crew!) completing the Shopkick Scavenger Hunt and upload it to the app. We’ll announce the winners once our week of scavenger hunt fun is complete!

Win 125,000 Kicks with Shopkick

We think your week is about to get even better…because we’re giving away 125,000 kicks to four Shopkickers! We know we’re looking for big and small ways to celebrate during 2021, and we know you are too. So, we’re bringing the fun the best way we know how – by giving you a (big) bump for your next shopping trip (or series of trips).

Our Shopkickers are the people, just like you, who engage with us and each other. You’re eager to share the products you’re discovering, the recipes you’re loving, the ways you’re saving money, how you’re earning kicks, where you’re redeeming your kicks, and so much more. Our app keeps getting better, and that’s because of you! 

So, we want to see how you Shopkick!
