Target has partnered with shopkick, an app that allows consumers to earn points for shopping (at participating stores) that can then be redeemed for a variety of rewards.

"We've learned from our guests that they appreciate being rewarded for doing what they already love to do — shopping at Target," Bonnie Gross, Target vice president of marketing and guest engagement, said in a press release. "In our test launch, Target guests in seven cities had the opportunity to experience shopkick at Target and we received rave reviews."
Shopkick is free and available on iPhone and Android devices. When guests walk into their Target store, shopkick rewards them with points known as "kicks." Then, as guests shop the store, they have the opportunity to scan products ranging from everyday items like food and cleaning supplies, to specialty products like electronics and toys, for additional kicks.
Kicks can be redeemed for Target gift cards, Facebook credits, dining gift certificates, iTunes downloads, donations to charities, and more. Guests can also receive special in-store deals including coupons and discounts.
