Best Buy launches Shopkick location-based trail this week in 187 stores.

Best Buy launches shopkick tomorrow in 187 Best Buy stores. Starting tomorrow you can download the shopkick app for the iPhone and start getting rewards for visiting Best Buy stores. When the shopkick app is open on your phone, it detects the shopkick Signal technology installed in the participating Best Buy store as you walk through the door. You then instantly receives rewards, called kickbucks, which can be accrued over time, then redeemed in the store or converted into Best Buy certificates through your shopkick account.

Additionally, Best Buy has integrated shopkick directly into its point of sale system to streamline the redemption of special in-store offers and/or added bonuses for scanning barcodes of specific products, all of which will be sent to the user’s phone. Customers may walk up to the cashier, provide the mobile phone number connected to their shopkick account, and any applicable personalized discounts immediately appear on their receipt.

Best Buy intends to run a series of promotions and offers through the stores participating in the experiment, as variables to determine how much customers value the experience.
This could be pretty cool incentive to buy in-store at Best Buy and a great way to turn your Sunday mall trips into rewards for savings to your next TV.

The first shopkick enabled Best Buy stores are in stores in the San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose, New York City, Chicago markets. Best Buy will launch the shopkick system in 70 more stores on October 1st. An Android shopkick app is also planned. Via Best Buy.
