I already check in to Shopkick every time I step foot into Best Buy, Target, and Macy's (and am well on my way to getting some serious reward points), and now my one-off visits to Crate & Barrel will be lucrative thanks to Shopkicks's newest partnership. Starting this February, Shopkick will be installing its sensors in Crate & Barrel stores nationwide (NYC- and Chicago-based CB stores starting this weekend), allowing you to check in via the iPhone and Android apps or scan bar codes to earn rewards points that can be later used toward real items.
For me, Shopkick seems like a money-making machine, and I'm baffled as to why more of my tech-savvy friends aren't using it! As soon as this partnership launches, I'm planning a major tech renovation. Are you checking in to stores with Shopkick?
