We always look for ways to save money and time but the two sometimes conflict with each other.  For instance rewards program, where you provide your phone number or scan a card.  Then there are apps that require you to take pictures, check in, write reviews and answer survey questions for discounts, which are time consuming and inconvenient. But there is an app that has found that sweet spot of saving money and time.  Shopkick is a point rewards system but it links to your credit/debit cards, so whenever you scan your Visa or Mastercard card for payment, Shopkick will note the store and add points, or kicks, into your account.  No second card or phone number to enter, no reviews to complete but you can earn more kicks if you choose to "check in" at certain places. The program works at most of the major retail stores like Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens as well as online stores like Apple and Amazon.  Then you redeem your kicks for gift cards.  As for your credit card/debit card information, Shopkick states it doesn’t keep that information but rather stored with Visa and/or Mastercard themselves, so your personal information is protected.  The app for Apple (CLICK HERE) and Android (CLICK HERE) is free.
