Last week, ShopKick had a 100-point walk-in bonus at Walmart, but there were major problems.
The 100 Kicks were only good for one day, and only at select stores.
While Walmart stores in Eldersburg, Owings Mills, Hampstead and Hanover, Pa., participated, it was surprising that the Westminster store did not.
Since I had to go to Hampstead, I walked into the Walmart store there, but nothing happened. No bubble, no screen change and no Kicks.
I reported it immediately and an orange bubble appeared saying to try again, so I did - two more times, with the same results.
The next day, there was a 50-Kick walk-in at the same stores, so I tried the Hanover Walmart. The same thing happened - nothing.
Another day there was a 45-Kick walk-in, but I didn't even try it.
As well as reporting the problem several times on the app, I emailed ShopKick about the problem, but so far have not received a reply. However, I noticed that "no people" had walked into any of the Walmart stores, according to the boxes on the ShopKick app, which means that people walked in but no one got Kicks.
An announcement also flashed on the app screen saying that there was a one-day walk-in Kick bonus at Office Depot, but I couldn't find which stores were participating.
I love getting walk-in Kicks, but some work definitely has to be done when adding new stores to the app.
