A Little Honesty from KathrynEkman.com
I have had this website now almost five years. Yes that right five years. I believe I have like 11ish post which mean I have averaged about two post a year if you divided it up. But seeing as my last post was almost two or three years ago I would have to admit I am kind of slacking. I had big plans of being this super saving deal blogger but there was this thing called life that has gone in the way. Not saying that is a good excuse for not doing too much with KathrynEkman.com. If I was truly honest with why this site hasn’t been has successful as I dreamt it would be, it would be because of my fear of failing. But really fearing to fail is the same as fearing to succeed. My blog KathrynEkman.com is so much more than coupons and savings, it will be a way for me to express my life, journey, ideas, experiences and of course I will share any cool deals and saving tips I find thru out this journey called life.
If you have a smart phone, you MUST get ShopKick. Mashable placed it 7th on its article 10 Apps to Watch in 2011. The app is free and there is no cost to use it, just a little time. Whenever you open the app, it will display offers from nearby locations.
There are two ways to collect kickbucks. First is Check-In and Collect. By tapping the numbered bubbles, you receive the indicated kickbucks. Also, some bubbles have a star which indicates a bonus hidden inside. Blank bubbles will give you a point toward leveling, so check every bubble. After you have checked in, a check mark will appear in the bubble.
The second way to earn kickbuck points is to go to the Store and Collect. Collecting in stores offers a lot more kickbucks than just checking in and collecting from home. All you have to do is go to one of the stores that have in-store kickbucks. Walk in, check for reception and collect. It is that easy, no joke!
Some stores offer additional kickbucks by scanning certain items. So keep your eyes open for kickbucks inside. Use kickbucks to get cool stuff like gift cards, facebook credits, purses, head phones, a TV or even a cruise. You get a reduced kickbucks deal offer for the first 10 days after starting ShopKick. Not sure if it is the same for everyone but my offer was a $25 dollar gift card to restaurant.com for 400 kickbucks instead of 875 kickbucks. Great deal!!! I was over 400 kickbucks after just the first day. It is so easy to use. Want 50 kickbucks just for starting? Use my shopkick promo code: bison6464 and you will get 50 kickbucks points to start. And for a limited time, you will get 250 kickbucks instead of 50.
