What is Shopkick and how does it work

  1. First, I earn a TON of free gift cards with the shopping app called Swagbucks. You should definitely sign up with them! We even share how we’ve used this method on how to get into Disneyland for free.
  2. Ebates offers free gift cards (plus you get a free $10 gift card when you sign up and make 1 purchase thru them) when you shop online as well. I usually compare the % each one is offering when I’m shopping somewhere and click the button for whichever will give me the most points.
  3. I share here how to earn free airline tickets too…we haven’t paid for flights in years using this method.

How you can travel for free is another article I wrote after I had a lot of people asking how we could afford to travel as often as we do with a family of 5, totally works.
