Join Me On Wikets!

I’ve been playing around with a new app called Wikets and I want to get more people signed up so we can help get the Wiket ball rolling! It’s a fun app and a great way to share stuff you love. I kind of describe it to people as a Yelp, meets Twitter with a WeReward type of points system. Did I mention it’s FREE?!!


Wikets is compatible with Apple iPhone, iPad and ipod touch with iOS 4.0 or later. Wikets allows you to recommend products (called “recs”), apps and places to your friends and in turn, search for great recs from people you follow. Then you can earn points for sharing and using each others’ recommendations and redeem points for e-gift cards. The e-gift card program is being hammered out right now, but while they are working out the details, it’s a perfect time to get started, earning points and discovering new places and products.


Personally, I don’t buy much of anything these days without a recommendation from a friend or great word of mouth, so this app is really helpful and it’s fun too! One of my favorite aspects is getting a glimpse into the homes of my friends – what kind of products to they use, what do their kids eat and play with, where do they like to go?! It’s fun! And if you join with my promo code, you can spy on Aubrey and me 🙂


Here’s how to sign up
– Go to the Apple App Store and search/download Wikets
– When prompted for a promo code, enter: funnyyellowmom and you’ll be ready to REC and roll!! Ok, that was really cheesy, but I do think you’ll have fun with it!

WIKETS! Recs & Rewards!

Hi Peeps!


I’m helping a friend of a friend launch their new app called WIKETS. I just downloaded it today and it’s really quite cool. It’s kind of like Facebook meets Yelp meets Amazon meets Twitter… but not complicated at all.


You build a network of friends and make recs (recommendations) of products (your favorite blender, the best spatula you’ve ever bought, the warmest snowboarding mitts on the planet) and places (sushi that will make you die, only garage to get your car serviced, the Thai massage that made you cry for your mother…in a good way), build wish lists and then earn rewards like Amazon gift cards for using friends recs, wishlists and re-recs.


WIKETS is FREEEE and currently available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with iOS 4.1 or later.


Here’s one last thing I should mention – I’m in a contest to see who can ge the most people to download with their promo code. I can will a MILLION DOLLARS! 


OK, it’s actually only $500 but that could buy a lot of tater tots (currently Aubrey’s favorite food).


Here’s what to do:


1) Install WIKETS from the app store on your device, for free
2) Open the app on your device 
3) Create an account
4) During account creation, it will ask you if you have a promo code: FunnyYellowMom


That’s it! Then enjoy the app! It’s pretty fun and could be addictive… like you need another time sucker! HA!


You can follow me too, to see my recs. 🙂


GooooooOOOOO WIKETS!
