5 free apps to help with back to school shopping

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on August 17th, 2016

The new school year is coming on like Usain Bolt rounding the turn in the 200-meter dash. In other words, really fast.

This isn't news if you're the parent of a school-aged child. In fact, depending on how your summer went, you may already have the first day of school circled on your calendar. The problem is, you may not have all of your back to school shopping done, and now you're running out of days.

Time to panic. Just kidding. It's actually time to download some free apps that can help you out of your conundrum. These apps all do different things, but they'll all come in handy as you get closer to that dreaded/celebrated occasion.

Everybody loves to save money wherever possible. Even more so in the current global financial climate. So what better way of doing so than through a free app by the name of Shopkick?

Shopkick offers users all manners of new and exclusive shopping deals from the likes of Target, Best Buy, Macy's, American Eagle, Sports Authority, Crate & Barrel and more. Perhaps even better, it also offers a rewards package in which users can simply and quickly gain gift cards, free movie tickets or help a good cause just by shopping. Shopkick ensures there's hardly anything people need to do to gain such rewards. They can do this by simply walking into one of the many partner stores, scanning products, making purchases or simply by checking in to the store. Walk in rewards are available in 80 different places across the US, including NYC, LA, SF, Dallas, Chicago, BOS, ATL, Houston, D.C., Miami, Seattle and St. Louis.

Shopkick also provides users with the ability to personalize their deal feed by picking out their favourite stores from over 50 different national chains, so it's easy to pick out the best deals. There's also top ten deals listed regularly to consult at a quick glance. Users can easily check out what stores are nearby and what deals are offered simply by tapping on the nearby menu option.

Users can quickly check how near they are to acquiring a reward by checking their total at the top of each screen within ShopKick. The rewards are suitably varied with the likes of charitable donations, gift certificates or simply Facebook credits ensuring there's something for everyone's taste. Plus they're relatively easily acquired too by checking what products provide what deals.

Shopkick is available now for North American users and is a free app so it's well worth a try. Here's hoping something similar comes over to Europe in the near future.
