Shopkick Signup Bonus Scam Warning--Fake Rewards

Mr. Bunny has previously recommended Shopkick, but recently had a bad experience. After collecting enough kicks for a PayPal deposit, his account was suspended immediately and the payment was reversed. Mr. Bunny has reached out to Shopkick, but received no detailed explanation. Instead, he was told that he violated one of the four rules, but they gave no details.  Based on the rules they provided, he couldn't figure out which one he had violated. 

We at MassKoupons now suggest that you proceed with caution if you wish to use Shopkick. Withdraw a gift card as soon as possible and save the value immediately. Mr. Bunny's friend was able to get a Starbucks gift card, deposit it via the app, and transfer it to a different card before they could cancel the transaction. His account was also suspended immediately after redeeming the gift card. 

The moral of the story is that it seems Shopkick loves for you to check in and scan products, but as soon as you try to claim a reward, they close your account. A quick Google search shows that we aren't the only ones to experience this. 

If you're looking for other options, look at FetchIbotta, and Rakuten/Ebates.  So far, we haven't had any issues with them.
