Watching On Wikets!

So I’m back, telling you about another new feature added to my favorite new app, Wikets. This is the great new iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch app that I’ve been blabbing on and on about. Wikets is a new form of social shopping – recommend your favorite products, places, tunes and more and check out what your friends recommend when you are looking to buy. Get rewarded with points for making recs, buying via recs, re-recing others’ recs and cash in the points for Amazon gift cards. Simple and somewhat addicting.

The newest feature on Wikets is a video attachment feature so now you can recommend a song, a product… just about anything and attach a corresponding video from YouTube! You can either make your own video or attach any existing video. This way, other users can get an even better idea of why you love what you rec so much.

Here’s an example of one of my videos that is already on YouTube – my Southwest Airlines Elevator Standoff commercial.

And here’s a rec I just made today. Mostly because I love this video of Aubrey so much and having only one child, I can’t stop telling everyone how cute I think she is (awwwww… baby Aubrey) but also because we were big fans of the Miffy The Bunny DVDs when she was a toddler so why not tell my friends, and then entice then with an adorable video of a baby dancing to the theme song? (wow, that was a really long sentence) If someone buys through my rec, I get points! Woohoo!

Wikets is growing and improving every day. They are a new app, but already getting a lot of buzz and I’m  close to getting my first Amazon gift card, so that’s pretty amazeballs. Sorry, I swore I’d never use that stupid word, but I couldn’t resist.

If you sign up for Wikets and enter my promo code, you’ll get 200 bonus points. It’s a free app, so why not give it a try?!

Register here and when it asks for “promo code” enter funnyyellowmom. Get your 200 bonus points and tell me what you like! Also, this is a new app and the developers would love feedback! Leave a comment below if you try it and let me know what you think!


Disclosure: I was compensated for my post about Wikets and for trying the app. My opinions expressed here are solely my own because I wouldn’t lie to you about how much I love Miffy The Bunny.
