Okay TV fans, here’s an app that will have you have your cake and eat it too! If you haven’t heard of Viggle, well you’re definitely missing out, because this app allows you to check-in to the TV shows you’re watching and gives you points to redeem. Think of it as Shazam for TV, but better. This is a TV loyalty program app that allows viewers/consumers to collect points and redeem them for gift card items such as Sephora, Starbucks, Burger King and even charitable donations.
I recently discovered this app watching The Ellen Show last week. Upon signing up, Viggle automatically gives you 1500 points. From then on, once you check into a show, you will receive points for the time you watch the show.
And for advertisers, they can get involved by associating themselves around key shows that they want to be associated with. Viggle is able to target ads and offers to consumers based on their geolocation, interests and mobile devices.
If you want to get paid just for watching TV, this is the app for you.
