Target goes with shopkick’s mobile, location-based rewards app
Minneapolis -- Target announced it will now offer shoppers the shopkick app via their smartphones. The service will allow shoppers to earn points for shopping at Target that can be redeemed for a variety of rewards.
“In our test launch, Target guests in seven cities had the opportunity to experience shopkick at Target and we received rave reviews. Now guests nationwide can start earning valuable points just by shopping our stores,” said Bonnie Gross, Target VP marketing and guest engagement.
Shopkick is free and available on iPhone and Android devices. When customers walk into a Target store, shopkick rewards them with points called “kicks.” Then, as guests shop the store, they have the opportunity to scan products ranging from everyday items like food and cleaning supplies, to specialty products like electronics and toys, for additional kicks.
Kicks can be redeemed for Target gift cards, Facebook credits, dining gift certificates, iTunes downloads, donations to charities, and more. Shoppers can also receive special in-store deals including coupons and discounts.
