This week I’m bringing something new to the blog….Tech Tuesdays!
These posts will be able apps, technology, or anything online that I’m loving.
This week I’m highlighting an App that I’ve been loving and sharing with all of my friends.
This App is called Pocket Points.
Here’s how it works:
You sign up and can register with Facebook to start your account. At this moment, it only works for some college campuses so you have to turn your location services on and make sure it works with your college. When you choose your college, you are ready to begin.
When you are in any academic building on your college (dorms don’t count) you open the app and then lock your phone. It’s as easy as that. When your phone is locked, you will begin earning points. You earn 1 point for every 20 minutes your phone is locked.
These points can then be redeemed for local or online deals.
Local deals include food discounts or stores close to you discounts.
Online discounts include stores like Coast Apparel, Collared Greens, Country Club Prep, Harding-Lane, SummerTies, and many more stores.
The app is a bit new though so it can be glitchy sometimes, but luckily for me I haven’t encountered anything too bad with it.
Why I’m loving it:
I can get crazy good discounts on food and clothes. Being a college student, I love anytime I can get a discount and this app makes it easy to obtain that. This app makes me want to lock my phone and pay attention in class just so that I can get points. My favorite feature is that on Tuesday you get double the points for Two Point Tuesdays. I also love the variety of stores and companies you can use points for.
It’s a free app and so easy to use.
If you are a current college student I suggest you get this app and start earning points!
