If you’re a fan of shopping (and an even bigger fan of loyalty reward programs), then we’ve got some great news for you: Shopkick is available at Best Buy!


What is Shopkick?


Shopkick is smart phone app and loyalty program that rewards consumers for simply visiting their favorite retail stores and interacting with products.  Anyone with an iPhone or Android-based phone can join and no purchase is necessary to start earning rewards.


How does it work?


It’s really simple!  Just download the free Shopkick app from either the iTunes App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android), visit a participating Best Buy® store with your smart phone, and check in at the door or the customer service desk.  You’ll immediately start receiving special offers that are only available to Shopkick members, as well as earn Kicks each time you check in or scan featured products using your smartphone’s built-in camera.






How can I take advantage of Shopkick offers?


To get kicks when you buy at Best Buy, you don't need to use your linked card. Instead, have the cashier scan your personalized shopkick QR code.
Here's how:

  • In the Stores tab, select Best Buy to see the store details page for the particular location you are visiting (check the address on this page), tap the "Purchases" icon. 




  • You should then see a personalized QR code/barcode. Present the screen to the cashier and make sure he or she scans it BEFORE pressing total for the transaction. Scanning this will add the Shopkick line to your receipt.








Other ways to earn kicks include:

  • Kicks for viewing collections - At times, you can earn points by viewing collections. This should be accessible and noted by clicking on the Featured Collections icon. 




  • Kicks for scanning products - When scans are available, you should be able to find them here:








  • You don't need to use your linked Visa or MasterCard to earn Best Buy purchase kicks. Kicks will be added directly to your account, instead of going into your pending purchases.
  • Best Buy transactions usually take 24 hours to process, but can sometimes take 3 days, depending on shopkicker traffic.
  • The Shopkick line must appear on your receipt for you to receive credit,  so double check your receipt before you leave the store.  If it doesn't appear, credit can't be awarded, for any reason.
  • You can get kicks for two transactions per week at Best Buy. If you're planning to make more purchases than that, be mindful of which purchases you add your shopkick information to. Best Buy takes your first two purchases that show the shopkick line in a week and credits them.
  • You cannot use two shopping applications at the same time - cashiers will not be able to apply two different QR codes to a single transaction.
  • Online and Pick Up orders are not eligible for kicks in Best Buy's kicks for purchase program, nor are transactions made at registers which do not support the Shopkick QR code/barcode scan process.  This means regular Best Buy transactions only.  Pacific Sales Kitchen & Home, Magnolia Home Theater, and Geek Squad specific transactions are not eligible for kicks.

If you believe your purchase was eligible for kicks based on the above criteria, please get in touch with Shopkick's support team with an image of the receipt within 10 days of the purchase so that they can look into it for you:


What can I use Kicks for?


You can redeem Kicks for a whole mess of goodies!  Whether you’re interested in Best Buy® gift cards, movie tickets or restaurant vouchers, we’re sure you’ll find something you want in the rewards section of the Shopkick app.  You can even donate your Kicks to over 30 different causes!


What happens if I forget to present my phone at the time of sale?


Kicks can only be awarded at the time of checkout -- neither Shopkick nor Best Buy are able to award credit for individual transactions if a Shopkick line does not appear on your receipt.
