Have you heard of GetGlue?

We all love reading a great book, entering an awesome giveaway and getting freebies in the mail... nothing is better than being rewarded for something you love to do. I am always on the lookout for interesting social networks that allows readers to rate books. Obviously we have Goodreads to share our reviews, rate and recommend to others, but we don't get anything in return, which is why I wanted to introduce you to GetGlue.

For those of you that haven't heard of GetGlue, it is a social network for entertainment, where you can "check in" to the book you are reading, shows or movies you are watching. You can "like", rate and engage with other users who have also checked in to the same book. The reward for using GetGlue is stickers, discounts off products and various other freebies. With every few check ins, you receive a fan sticker, and for some books, you receive a personal sticker for that book. It is a great way to show how much you love a book or movie and unlike Foursquare and Gowalla, you don't have to share your location, you just share what you are enjoying.

The bonus part... while the stickers do save on your phone, you can request for them to be printed into stickers and be sent FREE of charge to your home. No strings attached. Here is my sticker sheet:

You can sign up online at GetGlue or download the app for your phone. Watch the stickers roll in!

  1. I wondered what Get Glue was. I see a handful of friends on FB talking about it and their stickers. I never took the time to fully check it out. Thanks for breaking it down for us!

  2. No problem :) I was the same, until I finally sat down and figured out what it was. While there are rewards for users, it seems the US gets the bulk of rewards, like 20% off at Gap.

  3. Hello, Kris! I have to thank you for explaining what GetGlue is. I've seen it mentioned in Tweets and have been wondering.
