Last Updated March 19, 2018

Welcome to Shopkick, one of the most popular mobile shopping companions in the world.  Each month, Shopkick helps millions of users discover the best deals on the best products.  To ensure all users can enjoy the benefits of Shopkick under equal terms, the Shopkick Application, Website and Program may be used and accessed for lawful and approved purposes only. 

Below are our Rules you must following when using the Shopkick Application, Website and Program.  These Rules are in addition to the Shopkick Terms of Service.  You agree not to, and to not encourage or conspire with anyone else to, engage in any conduct that is inconsistent with the purposes, intent and spirit of the following Rules, or otherwise “game the system”. Shopkick shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether you have engaged in prohibited conduct and Shopkick’s determination shall be final.

You agree:
(i)    To abide by all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws and regulations in connection with your use of the Shopkick Program 
(ii)    You will not inaccurately represent the value of a referral or promo code award to any individual; or encourage or instruct any other individual to do any of the foregoing.
(iii)    You will not submit false, inaccurate, fabricated, counterfeit, tampered with or otherwise artificial and unauthentic purchase information for the purpose of gathering kicks or other awards.
(iv)    That you will have just one Shopkick account.  If you use more than one device, you may only collect kicks on one device at a time.  
(v)    You will not share your device(s) with other Shopkick users.
(vi)    You will not attempt to redeem kicks that were earned through any false or misleading fashion (for example by uploading receipts that have already been used by another Shopkick user or any other scheme to earn kicks for actions you did not take).   
(vii)    Regarding kicks for walk-ins, you must walk into the store during open store hours with the Shopkick app opened, and must follow the limits or restrictions mentioned in the app.  
(viii)   Regarding kicks for purchases with linked cards:   You may only associate a Credit (or debit) Card with your Account if you are a registered user of the Application who also has a verified phone number associated with your Account.  You must use the linked Card to make qualifying purchases that meet or exceed the purchase amount listed within the Application for that particular store, and you must abide by any other rules, restrictions or limitations listed in the app or in Shopkick’s Terms of Service.  You cannot use a Personal Identification Number (PIN) during the purchase.
(ix)    Regarding kicks for eCommerce and mCommerce purchases: kicks will only be issued for bona-fide completed transactions. The merchant determines whether you met the conditions in its offer; Shopkick does not control the merchant and is bound by their decision.  If you disagree with the decision, you may dispute that issue directly with the merchant.  If the applicable merchant or we determine that you tried to earn kicks using any fraudulent or deceptive means, we reserve the right to cancel any and all of your kicks.  You agree that neither Shopkick nor the applicable merchant is responsible for typographical mistakes in the offers and we reserve the right to correct the error and the merchant may refund all amounts paid and we may cancel all kicks associated with such transactions.
(x)    Regarding kicks for scanning products, you must scan the actual featured products while in one of the stores listed in the Shopkick app related to the respective product scan; you must only scan items that are featured for that store in the Application; and you must follow any limits or restrictions mentioned in the app.  You must scan one product at a time and wait some period of time between scans for each to be accepted and rewarded.
(xi)    Regarding kicks for submitting receipts, you may submit up to 20 receipts per week and must not upload receipts that reflect purchases made more than ten (10) days prior to the date the receipt is submitted. Per merchant, only 1 retailer receipt award per transaction day may be awarded.  You must not obscure the date printed on the receipt or upload a receipt without any date or clearly legible date.  If you are not eligible or no longer eligible for any receipt kicks, you will be unable to earn kicks on submitted receipts. 
(xii)    Regarding kicks for watching videos, you will only receive kicks for watching videos that include an overlay specifying the number of kicks to be awarded for watching that video.   You must tap on the video and watch the video to completion in the full-screen mode to receive the kicks indicated.  Watching other videos will not result in the awarding of kicks.  
(xii)    You may not purchase, combine or transfer kicks with other members or any other person, and any attempt to do so may result in disqualification from the Shopkick Program and forfeiture of all kicks in your account. 

This list is not exclusive.  Shopkick prohibits members or any other person from engaging in any activity that Shopkick, in its sole discretion, determines is offensive, interferes with the rights of others, or causes harm to any person, including to Shopkick and its employees. Violation of, or acting inconsistently with, the letter or spirit of our rules may result in appropriate consequences and at our sole discretion, suspension, cancellation or termination of the accounts of the offending user, and such violation may result in the forfeiture of any and all kicks that the User has earned. The preceding sentence shall not in any way limit any other remedy, legal, equitable or otherwise, that Shopkick may pursue.

Shopkick reserves the right to change these Rules from time to time and the changes take effect when we post them on the Website or in the Application.   

We hope you will have a great and rewarding experience with Shopkick.
