Thank you to Wikets for introducing me to this iPhone/iPad app. You can download Wikets from the App Store here.
If you have ever thought that someone should pay you for always telling everyone about your favorite products, then you are in luck. The people at Wikets agree — you should be paid when a friend purchases a product you recommended to them.
Wikets, available for iPhone/iPad, takes social networking to a commercial level. The new app invites you to recommend your favorite products to your followers and rewards you (in the form of gift cards) when your followers share your recommendation with their followers or purchase the item themselves.
Could it really be that simple, yes.
After downloading the app, you are walked through a couple of quick recommendations (for which you are rewarded instant points so you can see how the whole process works). Then you can search for friends on Wikets by linking your Facebook account (and soon your Twitter account too) to locate people you know using the app. Since the more people who are following you the more likely someone is to share and/or buy your recommendation, you want to find as many followers as you can.
Every 100 points earned is worth $1, and when you earn 2,500 points you can redeem the points for a $25 Amazon gift card (more gift card options coming in the future).
Wikets is a brand new app, released November 7, so it will be interesting to see how it catches on. When I first signed up none of my Facebook contacts were using the app (I feel so in-the-know), so it has been hard for me to find people to follow. But I can definitely see the app catching on as more and more Facebook users jump on the bandwagon and start making recommendations. I just wonder how long it will take to reach that magical 25,000 point level…
Through the initial sign-up bonuses, my account started off with 400 points, and I am happy to share with readers a code for you to add when you sign up so you can jump start your Wikets account with 400 points too. On the sign up screen, where it asks for a code (at the top) enter the code thesuburbanmom, then you will be asked to make three quick recommendations. At the end of the process you will have 400 points. (Hint, after you register head over to the FAQ section and click the “Gimmie Free Points” button for a couple more free points.)
Since I already love to shop on Amazon, I am all about earning free Amazon credit for recommending things I love. I see this as a win-win. Download Wikets today and start sharing your recommendations with your friends. Maybe we can all get some holiday gift ideas and earn some Amazon credit in the process. (Be sure to follow me, “TheSuburbanMom,” I’ll follow back.)
