Every year at Christmas time, I have to figure out what the children in the family have on their wish lists.
Considering that there are close to 20 kids in the family, and they range in ages from 3 years old to 15, it can become quite the complicated mess to find the perfect gift for everyone!
This year, I've found a way to make my Christmas shopping easier with the Wikets app! I've been using the Wikets app on my iPhone for over a year now and have really enjoyed being able to place all of my online orders through the app and earning Amazon gift certificates for my purchases! So, now that I have a ton of Amazon gift certificates saved up, it's time to do my Christmas shopping through Wikets so that I can not only make the process of finding gifts easier, but also earn more points to use towards Amazon gift certificates while spending the ones that I have!
The gift that I need to find right now is for my 10 year old niece who is turning 11 at the end of December, right after Christmas. She loves Monster High, but I really don't know anything about it! I have already gotten her one Monster High toy, but I need one more and I have no idea what is a "good" toy from the Monster High line!
The way that Wikets works is you create a Wiket - a question - asking for recommendations for a certain product or product line. Other Wikets users then search through the different store catalogs in the Wikets app - like Amazon, Sephora, Best Buy, Target, Etsy, eBay, etc - and make recommendations for you.
Users get points for creating Wikets, and always receive points for making recommendations, and if someone purchases your recommendation, you get points for their purchase! You also get points for purchasing things that have been recommended in Wikets too! Of course, they have to make the purchase through the Wikets app in order to receive points.
This is the Wiket that I created last night, asking for recommendations for Monster High toys for my niece. As you can see, I already have 26 recommendations for awesome toys from my followers!
If you aren't already signed up with Wikets, I strongly suggest that you do! Not only is it a great place to find product ideas year round, but it's a wonderful way to earn while shopping and being social! I have earned $130 in Amazon gift cards this year alone through the Wikets app, just through making recommendations and making my Amazon purchases through the app! There are many other gift card options, Amazon just happens to be the one I choose because I have an Amazon Prime membership with free shipping.
For the next few weeks, while I continue to finish up my Christmas shopping, there will be a Wiket in my right hand side bar.
I will be asking for a few more gift ideas and I would love if you would help me out with your recommendations!
While you can join Wikets via the web at Wikets.com and make recs, you can only earn points for recs made through the iOS apps. Simply download the iOS app for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch here - it's totally free!
While I was compensated for this post, all opinions are my own. I am a huge fan of Wikets!
I can't believe you've earned that much! That is phenomenal, especially since I'm an Amazon girl big time!
What a neat service, great way to get ideas you may not have thought of.
Wow, that's awesome!!!
I have never even heard of the Wikets. My husband is Mr. Amazon. He is always buying something off there. I have got to have him check this out.
