Shopping app review: Checkpoints
CheckPoints: This app rewards shoppers just for checking out products with no purchase necessary, which makes our bank accounts very happy. You can use your phone as a tool to earn gift cards and prizes. Just check in when you get to a store. The app alerts you to featured products. You then earn loyalty points by locating and scanning those products. When you get enough points, redeem for prizes such as gift cards at major retailers, airline miles or even cool gadgets like the iPad or PlayStation 3.
The free app is available in the iTunes App Store and the Android Market.
