I LOVE shopping for Home Stuff, and you all know I love a good bargain. I am also not a fan of scams or so called “free” when really I am giving all my information away.
There are so many apps out there that tell you that you can get free money or free gift cards but you have to download 500 million billion apps to do it. Or take crazy surveys and the rewards don’t add up all that quick. So I am here to tell you about my two FAVORITE apps for getting free gift cards. For the last couple months if I shop at TJ Maxx & Home Goods it is usually all free (unless I go a little crazy and can’t say no to items 😉
Now before you go searching for these apps read what I have to say about them and if you do decide to download the app (which you would have to be crazy not to. Sorry but its true) make sure you click the links below and don’t search for the app on your iphone.
I LOVE shopkick for so many reasons. Number one it is SO USER FRIENDLY. It always reminds me if I am by a store that has “kicks” available. With shopkick you can get “kicks” (aka points) as these kicks add up you can ‘cash them out’ into gift cards. The perk of Shopkick is there are soooo many store options. I choose TJ Maxx/Home Goods because I have budgeted a smaller amount of home stuff in our finances so we can spend a little more on clothing. So shopkick picks up the slack. It also helps my shop-a-holic tendencies with a $0 bill. Which the hubby always loves. Especially when I bring home more pillows 😉 I typically get a $15 gift card every other week for TJ Maxx/Home Goods. Hey every $15 adds up. Especially when your a sucker for kitchen linens like I am and am always switching them out.
So the rundown: You get kicks by a) walking in a store (b) scanning products (c) purchases
PRO: SO many stores you can cash out gift cards too & way more stores to get kicks (points) at.
CON: None for me.
I personally do not have my cards linked to shopkick. I just get kicks by scanning items and walking into stores. So why do they have you scan items? Its a way for companies to see if the stores have their new products in the store and its also a sneaky way of introducing you to new products you may not have known about otherwise.
So Chamelon is the easiest app of all. The only downfall is the gift cards are ONLY for Target. Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE target. Okay I am OBSESSED. haha. When you compare it to shopkick though that offers over 10 different stores you can cash out your gift cards for though that is the only downfall. Now the easiest part of chamelon is you don’t even have to walk into the store. So say you are out doing errands and driving by a couple stores on the list that you can get a point for just drive by it (with chamelon app pulled up) and you will get a point. I LOVE this !!
So the rundown: You get ONE point per store. 20 points = $5 gift card to target
PRO: You don’t have to walk in store
CON: Only offers Target Gift Cards
Also, this post is NOT sponsored by Chamelon or Shopkick in anyway. I just seriously love it so much!
