Smartphones are gradually replacing many everyday objects. With secure payment methods and the appropriate management of bank cards, they've ended up becoming virtual wallets, thanks to apps of the likes of Stocard.
The loyalty card manager for Android
This system allows us to add different loyalty and user cards to then use them straight from our phone. How it works is very easy: we simply have to choose our card and scan its barcode to add it to our user profile. Then, whenever you want to use it in a store, you only have to pass it through the scanner.
These are its main features:
- Can be used without any signing up processes.
- There are over 300 loyalty cards available: IKEA, Waitrose, Tesco, Superdrug, British Airways, Sainsbury, BP, Iberia...
- Possibility to add loyalty cards that aren't yet available from the Other customer card option.
- Location widgets: by means of our GPS location, we'll be shown the most relevant loyalty cards for our current position.
According to user opinions, Stocard Wallet is the best Android application to keep all our loyalty cards in the same place.
You have to bear in mind that some stores are still using rather outdated scanning methods so your smartphone screen might not be read appropriately... in that case, Stocard might not work for you. If that happens, you can enter your customer number manually.
All in all, this application will help us to gain some extra space in our pocket and also to organize ourselves better. We won't have to worry about losing our cards... except if we lose our smartphone, of course. By the way, there's also a version for iPhone and the app is compatible with smartwatches.
