Introducing kicks for travel at Shopkick
We are pleased with the traction we’ve seen with our new Mobile Shopping offering since its launch in last month. In just three short weeks, we saw repeat purchase rates close to 20% at two of our leading mcommerce partners, and Shopkick users tapped 8x more than industry benchmarks.
As we continue to grow our product offerings, we focus on what our users want and pay close attention to their feedback. I love receiving emails from our users and read everything that comes to firstname.lastname@example.org. One consistent theme has been requests to earn kicks while traveling. Some examples:
“Please add reward travel for Marriott, Hilton and airlines. My parents are getting old and I wanna take them on one last epic trip.”
“Want kicks to travel to a family reunion with the first cousins.”
“I am retired and love to travel. Was a foster parent for teenage girls for 15 years. Now it’s OK to do something for me. Want to use kicks to travel.”
Today, I am happy to announce that Shopkickers can earn kicks at hotels.com, a popular online accommodation booking website with properties all over the world, when booking a stay at one of their huge assortment of hotels. Hotels.com is our first partner in travel with more to be announced shortly.
Now, our users can enjoy earning kicks while they travel! After the trip, they’ll have more kicks waiting to be redeemed for gifts cards at Amazon, American Eagle, Best Buy, eBay, Groupon, Starbucks, TJ Maxx, and our ever-growing list of rewards partners.
Other additions to our mcommerce platform include Minibar and Seatgeek, which mark our entry into the alcohol delivery and ticketing spaces.
Happy Shopkicking and feel free to reach out to me anytime at email@example.com. I welcome your feedback!
