How to Redeem Shopkick Kicks for a Gift Card

Create a Shopkick account here.

First off, I want to thank those of you who have already signed up for Shopkick through my sign up link above.  I hope you have already started earning Shopkick Kicks and are almost ready to redeem your Kicks for gift cards.  In case you have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, please read Office Depot + Plink + Shopkick = 1 Big Happy Family.

Earlier this morning, I showed you How to Add a Credit Card to Shopkick. Now that you have ShopKick Kicks, let me show you how to redeem your Kicks…

Log into your Shopkick account on your smartphone and click Browse Rewards.

Browse Shopkick Rewards

You can chose any reward you want.  I love Starbucks, so I will redeem my Shopkick Kicks for a Starbucks Gift Card.  Click on the gift card you want to see more information.

Select Starbucks

Most gift cards have different increments available for purchase.  Each Shopkick Kick is worth 4/10 of a cent, so it doesn’t matter which reward option you chose since you will get the same value.  In this case, a $5 Starbucks gift card costs 1,250 Shopkick Kicks (1,250 x $0.004 = $5).

Scroll down the page and you will see an option to redeem your Shopkick Kicks.  If you want to change the default gift card option, click on the 1 button or $5 button below to view other possible options.

    Thanks for eduacting us about ShopKick. I live in New Jersey. After buying 2 VGCs at OD and not getting any rewards, I got this from them ShopKick customer service:

    Thanks for reaching out! Currently Office Depot is only offering walk-in kicks to Western states and they only offer kicks for purchase at those stores, but we hope they’ll take it nationwide in the future :) Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience.

      Wow, that’s a major bummer. Office Depot must be rolling out the new iBeacon technology starting on the west coast. Hopefully the east coast is not too far behind.

    What do you do if you go to redeem some kicks, the screen goes to the “redeeming screen,” and then at the “got it” screen you get a message stating, “An error has occured! Please try again.” I have tried at least 20 times, and different ways, too! I have emailed customer service and am not getting any replies yet… I have lots of kicks… Now i want the rewards lol!

      Hmm, wait a few hours and try again. You might want to hard close the iPhone app, since there might be a bug in it, but if it still doesn’t work try calling or emailing customer service and see if they can help you out. Good luck and I hope you get your gift card soon.

      Hi Paula,

      I am having the exact same problem as you. Did it ever end up working for you? if so, how were you finally able to redeem your rewards? I have already successfully redeemed a $25 Target gift card a couple of days ago, but I already have enough points added back up for two more $25 gift cards and it’s extremely frustrating to me that after repeatedly trying to redeem them, I have been unsuccessful time after time. :( PLEASE HELP! because I haven’t heard a word back from customer service since I’ve sent them an email. THANK YOU!

          thank you so much for your reply. Is there a number to contact them? I thought you could only contact them through email. I would love to call them! I think I’d have much better luck getting in touch with someone that way.

            I’m not sure of a phone number, but I’m sure there is one. Search the web for one and if you can’t find one, let me know. Good luck!

      I got kicked out of Shopkick (ironic, huh?) so I can’t use the app anymore. Can you redeem for a different gift card or for a different amount (like $5 or $10 instead of $25)?

    I’ve been locked out of my shopkicks account. Sent several emails and no luck. I finally found a number online to try! Hope it works 650-326-1667

      Thanks for sharing the phone number. I don’t think Shopkick will be around much longer, better redeem your Shopkick points while you can.

    I haven’t signed up yet, but I’d like to know what they pay for referrals? Also is there an age limit for participants? Do they offer an Amazon or Visa gift card?

      Hi Melinda, I believe ShopKick pays 500 kicks per referral. I think as long as you have a smartphone, you can use ShopKick. I do not think ShopKick offers Visa or Amazon gift cards.

    I redeemed my shop kicks for a $25 gift card to target. And the instructions say to view my gifts card in my profile , but I can’t find it. It shows I used my shop kicks but I can’t find my card. What do I do. I’ve already emailed them.

    It’s great but lost all my points it location was wrong in would not scan and would not let me get my walk-in points then it crash and had to reset the app and did not give me my points back. I looked it up and it said it would. It did not work.but after that it said i had points to scan it still would not scan and said wrong location. All i want it it to get fixed and get my points back it does take a long while to rack up those points.

    If you redeem kicks for Starbucks card can you take emailed copy to Starbucks and have them transfer that to a hard card? Thanks.

      I’m not sure they would be able to help you transfer it in-store. You can transfer the balance online or from the Starbucks app.

    Hi, When I redeem my points for my Starbucks gift card it keeps telling me an error. Why is that? I have enough for a ten dollar gift card.
