“The rewards I get from CheckPoints make shopping fun!”-Mr CP
First, grab your iPhone or Android device and go to your local market (I go to CheckMart fairly often). It’s best to stand near the door to check in. Fire up CheckPoints and touch the “Earn” tab. You will see a list of locations. Select your store from the list (in my case, that would be CheckMart). Touch “Check in” on that location’s screen. A little banner should drop down after you’ve selected it to notify you that you’ve been awarded your check-in points for that location.
Next, select “Check out products” under your store location, and you’ll see a list of “Featured” products. These products will give you a coin, in addition to points, when you scan them. You can use the coin to play our bonus game to win up to 150k points instantly! You can also look for opportunities to scan products by category by selecting the “Change Aisle” button on the right hand corner of the app. Look through the categories to find what item you’d like to scan first.
Checking into CheckMart!
Once you’ve figured out what item you’d like to scan, select its picture by tapping it on the app.
A scan screen will open up with aline across it.
Before scanning, make sure that the product that you have in your hand is the same product as in the app. Hold the product steady in your hand, or place it on a shelf with the barcode facing up. Note: If the package is shiny, try to avoid excess reflectivity and glare on the barcode by blocking out overhead lights (you may have to change the product angle or the direction you’re facing with the product).
Steady your barcode scanner and keep it in line with the full barcode (you may have to tilt the product so that you can scan the whole thing or smooth the packaging out if it’s wrinkled).
When the app scans your barcode, you will hear a “beep” sound, and the app will notify you that it is verifying the scan (to make sure that it is the right product). If the product matches the code in the app, the points will show up on your point counter instantly!
Another Note: If you feel like you’re scanning the right product, but keep getting an error message, let CheckPoints know by Reporting a Problem.
Other important stuff to be aware of:
1) You must be using the CheckPoints App to earn points.
2) You must be in the physical store to check in and earn points for scanning.
3) Bar code scans must be of bona fide physical products.
It’s important that every user has a fair shot at earning points and getting rewarded. That’s why CheckPoints makes sure to stop in their tracks the people who don’t play fair. In fact, there’s a special top secret CheckPoints security officer watching out for those people. He comes to us straight from the North Pole, where he’s been helping Santa make up his “Naughty or Nice” list every year. This guy knows what everyone’s up to! Any person who attempts robotic, electronic, or other ways of “cheating” the app will be notified of their violation, and may get “the boot.” We hope that he doesn’t have to work very hard, and that every one of you will follow the rules (I would if I were you, he’s a little gruff-looking).
I hope that this little tutorial clears things up! Follow these directions and you will keep collecting your awesome rewards with CheckPoints into the future!
