So, I have to tell you about a legitimate way to earn gift cards while you are out and about shopping.  Shopkick is not new but I recently started using it so I can earn gift cards to a couple of store (Target and Starbucks are my 2 favorites).

There are not many app where  you can truly earn cash that are real and easy to use!  Shopkick is one of the few I have found.  It is super easy and my kids are old enough to use it too!

You can earn $5 in a week without a purchase. First, download the Shopkick app, turn on bluetooth. When you walk in to the store, or sometime near by with the bluetooth on you will get “kicks” (points).

You can scan the products listed in the app for that store for more “kicks” and there is no purchase necessary. It seems on the weekend the “kicks” value are higher. Plus earn for online shopping too.   If you purchase items on the list, submit your receipt for more “kicks”.

It’s SO simple to redeem your rewards for a gift card! The app lets you know you have a reward ready and once you have 500 “kicks” you can redeem $2 gift card. However, I wait for 1250 “kicks” to get the $5 gift cards. Weekly I get a $5 gift card.

There are many places to get your gift cards from:  Walmart, Starbucks, Eagle Outfitters, Lowes, Target, Ebay, Cheesecake Factory, Gamestop, Old Navy, Itunes and more.

Sign up here for Shopkick & start earning your gift cards!

It Pays to Ask for Discounts

How to Ask for Discounts

Most of us have heard that there’s no such thing as a stupid question. This same statement applies to saving money, too. Shoppers can acquire unannounced or unadvertised discounts simply by asking.

The following types of retailers offer discounts at checkout: restaurants, clothing stores, craft stores, automotive stores, department stores, entertainment stores, and home improvement stores. And sometimes even a smile and a question about discounts or deals could net you 10 percent off your purchase.

Yes, you read that correctly. Store cashiers are often authorized to give up to a 10 percent reduction simply when requested by a customer.

Some retailers have also set aside special discount days, some of which are unadvertised or unscheduled. Here are some examples of the discounts that can easily be found and qualified for: AARP, AAA, military, first responders, teachers, students, contractors and seniors. Because some people might get offended (for instance, with a senior discount), not every cashier will mention the discounts. So don’t be afraid to ask about a discount.

When asking for your discount, keep these questions in mind:

• Does your store have any discounts or coupon codes?

• Do you have any coupons available that I might not know about?

• Is there a way I can qualify for a 10 percent discount?

If you ask for extra savings, you might be surprised by how many you receive.
