If you’re like me, chances are you have a pile of grocery, pharmacy and other loyalty cards in your wallet, and a couple of peeling, pathetic ones on your key ring. These are the cards you need to scan to receive store discounts and garner loyalty points.
At a recent conference, a fellow app-a-holic turned me on to Key Ring, a handy smartphone app that allows you to enter all your loyalty programs into your phone so you don’t have to carry the physical cards anymore. To enter your cards, just snap a picture of the card’s barcode, and your card is permanently and instantly cataloged in your app.
In addition, the loyalty programs frequently offer other discounts and specials through the app and makes it easier for you to sign up for new cards as well.
