Pittsburgh -- American Eagle Outfitters and Shopkick, the largest location-based shopping app that rewards shoppers simply for walking into stores, announced the national rollout of Shopkick to all American Eagle Outfitters and Aerie stores across the country. Customers will earn "kicks" (points) just for walking in, as well as receive a number of other exciting, exclusive offers throughout the stores.
"Shopkick is an ideal partner for AEO as we strive to be an early adopter of technologies that matter to our customers," said Fred Grover, EVP of American Eagle Outfitters. "We are excited to expand our long-time partnership with Shopkick to delight customers in all of our stores nationwide."
Additionally, American Eagle Outfitters is the only retailer that integrates Shopkick "kicks" with its own loyalty program, enabling customers to turn their "kicks" into AEREWARDS points. American Eagle Outfitters was one of Shopkick's first partners when the app launched in August 2010. Over the past two years, the retailer has been testing the technology in 200-plus stores. In addition to being a highly effective way to engage customers with the brand, the chain found increased traffic, sales and higher purchase amounts among Shopkick users.
