Do you like to buy things on sale? Do you hate paying full retail? I know I do, I like 25% off, and I love 50% off.
Do you like to play on-line games? I do, I play Vegas Slots on Facebook, and we have been able to use the points I earned to get a few free and discount perks when we last visited Las Vegas!
I met the gameit folks at a recent conference and immediately fell in love with their premise! You play games while competing to buy products at a discount! I get two desires fulfilled at once! And the best part is, right now we are all in the heart of Back to School shopping, I know I am looking for any way to save money right now:
“Parents are expected to spend between $670 and $916 on each kid this back-to-school shopping season. The new trivia/shopping app gameit (www.gameit.us) has partnered with big brands to help consumers score actual prizes and deep discounts by just playing trivia games. Play for discounts from 10% to 50% off products from Nike, Toms, Disney, Pottery Barn Teen, Amazon and more which you can purchase directly within the app. Just download the app here, pick an item you want to play for, and answer trivia questions on a brief video to win big. For back-to-school, gameit is the perfect app to knock some big ticket items off of your shopping list.”
In fact, my son also loves to play trivia games on his cell phone and iPod. I am getting him involved so I can put his game playing skills to use. Plus, I love the idea that he is involved with his own Back to School shopping, I hope it may teach him a thing or two about shopping, saving, and being more responsible with money. After all, he loves to play games and watch videos on his electronics, I might as well put his time to better use, and it helps me save some time to have him to do some of the work! The best part is, what I know is work, he thinks is game playing. Shh, don’t tell him! And don;t tell them one of their tag lines is, “The place where stealing is encouraged!” I will never get him off of the game!
Check it out now and let me know what you think, does playing to win discounts on products for kids heading back to preschool through college work for you!
