Shopkick teams up with Giant Eagle

PALO ALTO, Calif. — A location-based mobile shopping application has teamed up with a supermarket chain to reward users for buying specific products or brands.

Shopkick said users that shop at Giant Eagle now can utilize the app's Kickbuys technology at any of the chain's 228 stores. Shopkick users can collect thousands of "kicks" by buying featured products from many of the world's leading brands, Shopkick said.

"We believe that Shopkick's location-based shopping app is a valuable addition to our growing array of mobile customer offerings, led by our Giant Eagle app and e-offers digital coupon program," Giant Eagle spokesman Rob Borella said. "Much like our Fuelperks! and Foodperks! customer loyalty programs, Kickbuys are another unique way for customers to be rewarded for choosing to shop in our stores."

The Shopkick app is available for free on the iPhone from the App Store and on Android Market.
