Anyone else using Wikets app?

Trying to figure it out-any tips? Trying to accumulate a bunch of gift cards for our DL trip in August.

I used it. I have made $60, plus won $100 in their kitchen contest (owl timer). Anyway, it's easy. Just write a recommendation, re-rec something, wish list it or up to 50 points a day. If you or someone else buys something off your recommendation, you get points. When you get 1500 points, you can redeem for $15. I like Amazon--saving for Xmas. You should Viggle, too.

I do Viggle, though since we don't watch any live television (just do Netflix and Hulu) it's pretty slow. That, plus quick rewards, plus Field Agent (my best earner) have helped us earn a nice little pile o'gift cards.

No-Amazon, eBay and some others. I think I'll try for an eBay gift card to use for our pintrading pins.

Anyone else? I'm starting to figure it out. Might give it more attention if Viggle stops working for me.

So I decided to try this app after I saw this thread, but still don't understand how you get points by buying? Do you purchase through the app? Is it safe?

I'm curious about this app, since I use Field Agent & Viggle. But when I do a search I see 2 different apps. Is it the one with the silver "w" or the one with the yellow $?

You ave to do a screen capture of your purchase. I think it's safe, I've bought things twice. Most of my points come from recs and re-recs.

Thank you!

I'm signed up, and I have done a couple of recs. What are some tips/tricks you guys can offer to rack up points?

Here's what I figured out so far. You can accumulate 50 points a day from recing and re-recing, and the "day" seems to start at midnight ET. So, since I'm on the West Coast, I've been checking my total at 8:30 or so, and finding out how many I have still to rec. I then look at the recent recs on trending and people I follow, re rec what I want, and maybe throw some new ones in. I do only rec things I really like, though clearly a lot of folks go through and rec everything everyone else is recing. Definitely certain popular stuff-like the Viggle Ap-gets reced and re-reced a lot, so will keep earning you points every day once you rec it.

The most fun for me is places, esp since you can rec most the rides at the parks
