Thank you to Wikets for introducing me to this iPhone/iPad app. You can download Wikets from the App Store here!
I was recently did a round-up of the best money saving apps that are available for your smart phones. I also was recently introduced to another very useful app called Wikets that I can’t wait to tell you about! Wickets is available for your iPhone, iPod or iPad.
This app makes it super easy to make recommendations to your friends on everything from your favorite products to your favorite place to dine out. You also get to see what they recommend for you to check out. I’ve been testing this app out for a few weeks now and it has been fantastic!
I love how Wikets takes the word-of-mouth aspect of marketing and makes it mobile. I’ve found some of my now favorite restaurants and products through recommendations from my friends and family and now I have those same recommendations right at my fingertips when I’m on the go! You can see above what I am seeing on my phone today from my friends on Wikets.
The fun doesn’t stop there though…it gets better! 😉 Wikets will even reward you for recommending things to your friends! Plus, if you “rec” something on the app and someone “re-recs” it they will reward you for that too. Once you start to earn points you can cash those in for gift cards! A $25 Amazon gift card is only 2,500 points.
As a bonus for Bargain Blessings readers, Wikets has provided me with a promotion code (bargainblessings) that will give you 400 points right off the bat! That is 16% of the way to a $25 Amazon gift card right off the bat!
Here is how you can get started with Wikets:
1. Go to the App Store (or go on your phone) and download Wikets
2. Use the code bargainblessings and it will give you 200 points on top of the 200 points that every new member receives
3. Search for friends on Wikets or invite your friends to join if they have not already (don’t forget to tell them to use the code too)!
4. Make recommendations by canning a barcode or searching for it on your phone. The app even works with foursquare so it can pull in shops and restaurants that are in your area.
5. I’ve found that the points seem to add up pretty quickly, so keep recommending and re-recommending and then cash in your points for an Amazon gift card!
