A long-standing shopping rewards app has expanded — giving you more opportunities to earn gift cards for doing tasks you already do.

Specifically, Shopkick rewards users for shopping-related tasks with rewards points called “kicks.” You can earn kicks for simply walking into a store, as well as for actions such as scanning a product’s barcode, making a purchase and submitting your receipt. Kicks can be redeemed for free gift cards.

Shopkick is a free app for Android and Apple mobile devices. It has been around since 2010, but recently added a new set of features collectively called Shopkick Grocery, which Shopkick describes as “the company’s biggest launch since its debut.”

Bill Demas, CEO of Shopkick, explains, “We’ve extended what we know our users love about Shopkick to the grocery aisle …”

With the addition of the Shopkick Grocery features, you can now earn kicks in more stores and for more products.

The features are currently available in more than 37,000 grocery stores nationwide, including:

  • Kroger
  • Publix
  • Safeway
  • Target
  • Walmart

The new features also enable you to:

  • “Create shopping lists: One tap adds products to a personalized shopping list and helps shoppers find rewards for everyday items.
  • Get rewarded for trying new recipes: Simple recipes inspire shoppers to cook with featured products that are easily added to shopping list.”
