What is Shopkick?  In their own words:
 
“There are some things we all love about shopping—the anticipation of what waits at the store, the thrill of finding something unique, or just the chance for some good ol’ retail therapy. But we thought there was room for improvement—and that’s why we created Shopkick, the app that makes your shopping experience even better.

We’re all familiar with traditional reward programs. Shopkick is a shopping rewards program that’s, well, more rewarding. No plastic cards, no confusing rules, no extra steps. You just do what you love doing anyway—walking into your favorite stores like Target, Macy’s, Best Buy, Crate & Barrel, Old Navy, Toys “R” Us, Exxon and Mobil convenience stores, and more—and you automatically rack up über-versatile points called “kicks.” No applications to fill out, and no purchase required. That’s right—you just walk in with your smartphone and instantly earn kicks.

It’s really that simple, and it’s free! Buying something? Just link your Visa or MasterCard, and you’ll collect even more kicks for purchases. Use your kicks to treat yourself to a free Starbucks latte or those amazing jeans you’ve been eyeing. Or save them up and splurge on the designer goods you crave, like a Coach handbag, NikeID sneakers or even a NYC shopping spree. It’s the ultimate guilt-free shopping experience.”

On Wednesday, December 12 at 9pm ET, we’ll be chatting with Jeff Sellinger, co-founder and Chief Product Officer, and the @Shopkick team about how mobile is revolutionizing not only traditional shopping but also the customer loyalty experience.
