Barbara emailed in this tip for how she’s earning free gift cards to use for Christmas presents:
I just wanted to let you know I use the Shopkick app to earn gift cards. They let you earn points for doing walk-ins to stores such as Target and Old Navy. You can earn some kick for looking over the retailer’s kick page and earn surprise points.
You can also earn points(kicks) when you do purchases, some stores do $1=1 kick, some give bonus kicks for spending over a certain amount. Once you earn enough kicks you can redeem them for egift cards for places such as Target, Old Navy, Starbucks, and so much more.
I have earned 10,000 kicks since I have joined and have redeemed them for places like Starbucks and Target. I think this is a fun way to earn extra cash for the holidays! -Barbara
