Shopkick: College students can earn money easily!

Recently, I sent my first child off to college.  One of the things that we went over were ways to save money since she would be relying on her summer job money for things she would need, instead of mom and dad's credit card.  I introduced my college student to Shopkick!

One of my favorite way to use Shopkick is scanning products in the store.  This is their way of introducing you to a product and the more you have it in your hands to scan, perhaps the more likely you are to buy it.  We did a lot of college dorm shopping, and if she was going to Walmart or Target with me, you bet she was going to be scanning products with Shopkick.  Over the course of a month, we were able to bank her up about $50 in Starbucks gift cards that we redeemed our kicks for.  Trust me, my college student will appreciate having the ability to buy herself a pink drinks throughout the semester.  We were able to scan and buy pencils, post-it notes (the .97 ones were free after kicks, basically, since you got 250 kicks back = $1 in value) and the scotch tape (also, single ones were under $1 and were also valued at 250 kicks).  I even found a few 8 packs of pencils for .48 that made them close to free after kicks with the 100 kicks that was awarded.

So now, if she is out and about, she is looking for things to scan and earn kicks so that she can help fund her Starbucks habit.  My son is old enough for the app now and wants to do it too so that he can get things that he wants.  He asked me to take him Shopkicking... to which his sister told him, "No.  That's a me and mommy thing!"

You also earn kicks from buying certain products and submitting your receipt, plus occasional videos.  You can link your card and get Kicks at specific stores as well for purchases and an awesome way to get Kicks is when there are walk-ins available.

Are you a poor college student interested in gift cards?  Take Shopkick for a whirl and earn your own money during the semester.

If you still haven't done your Back to School shopping, here's a way you can get paid for finding a great products for your kids to get their school year started off right.

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It's a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you've never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly.

Click here to get started!

Here’s what you need to know to get your 200 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):
  • Shop Swago will begin on Monday, August 7th at 9am PT/12pm ET, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value.
  • Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • The game ends Thursday, August 10th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.
