We’ve mentioned Shopkick before as one of the best coupon apps to earn rewards from your phone, but here’s a little bit more about how Shopkick works in case you haven’t tried it out yet.

Shopkick is a FREE app that you can find in both the App Store and Google Play. Be sure to use the promo code COUPONPROJECT at signup to get a free $5 gift card!

Once you’ve installed the app and signed up for an account, you can earn reward points (Shopkick calls them “kicks”) in many different ways:

  • Visit a participating store
  • Scan participating product barcodes in the store
  • Purchase items with a linked Visa or MasterCard
  • Submit receipts for featured items
  • Shop online from the app
  • Watch short videos in the Discover feed of the app
  • Learn about new products within the app

Shopkick is a great way to earn free gift cards to spend at your favorite stores! Once you’ve earned enough kicks, you can trade them in for gift cards at retailers like:

  • Amazon
  • Starbucks
  • Target
  • Ulta
  • and lots more!

All gift cards are delivered digitally to your phone, so there’s no waiting for snail mail or an email. You’ll get your gift cards ASAP!

Don’t forget: Sign up for Shopkick and use the promo code COUPONPROJECT to get a free $5 gift card!
