The Penguin Hand Warmer I received from trading in some more points with Shopcade
The bottles of Kingstone Press I won from their Facebook page
The vouchers I’ve received from the 99p Stores as part of their challenge to show just how much fun you can have for under £10 so I’ll be off shopping this weekend (hopefully) to see what I can find! #my99psummer
I had a very strange text message on my house phone today, I couldn’t hear much of it apart from that something was going to be delivered today, using google on the number I figured out it was coming from ASOS. A while later I had another telling me that delivery had been done even though I was out (Ummm, me out? that just doesn’t happen!lol) so I looked outside and a little box had been left in the garden for me and this is what was inside. Its the Stone hair Brooch that I redeemed some points for from Shopcade, isn’t it pretty!
This little pack of goodness is the picnic that I won from Higgidy’s weekly competition! Loads of vouchers to use and a bar of choccy and a fruity snack to be going on with!
I’ve been a member of Shopcade for a very long time and have been telling you all about it when I receive things from redeeming points or winning things with them right here. Well it’s about time I told you all about them now really isn’t it?lol
Shopcade is a Facebook app (soon to include Twitter and email login’s as well though) that claims it’s mission is ‘To help you shop savvier while saving time and money!’ and they more than live up to it!
The main advantages to using Shopcade as I see them are:
Cashback and offers on your shopping – By simply adding items to your want lists and letting Shopcade know what you are interested in they can let you know when there are offers on the products you want so you know when it is the best (most cost-effective) time to buy and when you do buy, you get cashback too!
Trend Score – By interacting with the App (following people, adding items to your want lists, inviting people to join and shopping through them) you develop a trend score. The higher it is the better the rewards you can get from the site in addition to the ones mentioned above.
Points – You gain points from a variety of different methods. Logging in each day, following people, adding items to your wants, when a friend accepts your invite, when people follow you or add things you were the first to add and sometimes there are special games or missions which gain you extra points as well. These all soon add up and can be used for:
Rewards – Rewards are goods, vouchers and discounts that you can use your points to purchase, the higher the value, the more points it costs and also the higher your trend score would need to be to enable you to purchase it.
Competitions – You can use your points to purchase extra entries into their regular competitions. When it’s a draw you can buy extra tickets, when it’s a Lucky spin you can purchase additional spins.
So if all that’s not been enough to convince you to go have a look, maybe take a look here at the items I’ve redeemed points for over the last few months, if I can do it so can you too!
