- If you are scanning at home, make sure you SPOOF to the store location. Another possibility is printing all the barcodes and driving to the store and scanning the barcodes in your car outside the store.
- SCAN DURING STORE HOURS
- When you scan try to keep the words out of the picture. For example if you scan "Online Video Scan" for Best Buy try not to have those words show up in the thing when you scan. You could do this by right clicking on the image and click open image in new tab.
- Scan at reasonable intervals (1min+ between scans). Dont scan something from Deli Section and scan something from the toys section 5 seconds later.
- Dont spoof to new locations in 10 seconds either. Best way is to find a mall with all the stores next to each other like 200 meters or so apart so that you dont have to spoof around.
- Dont scan every item everyday. Realistically, would you go to every store everyday just to scan some barcodes?
- Preferably dont spoof to new states to use walk-ins or whatever. If you choose to spoof to Palisades Center NY dont spoof to a new state, just keep it spoofed in NY (But you can spoof to a new state once in awhile.
This guide will not guarantee that you will not be banned but it will make your chances slim to none. Before I had my iphone stolen, I did everything on this list and i kept my shopkicks account since February (10 months) which is a very long time. All barcodes on here are verified to work before I post it on here so you should be fine. Just dont scan every single thing everyday!
