A Smart Way to Manage Loyalty Programs
Are you tired of carrying a wallet or a key chain full of plastic loyalty tags and cards? It's hard to resist the perks but the consequences require you to carry each and everyone of those what seems like 50 cards with you to collect and redeem points.
If you'd like to consolidate all those loyalty, gift, membership and library cards, you'll love the Key Ring app for iPhones and Androids. Currently downloaded over 10 million times, this app stores your rewards program details in your smart phone.
Easy to Use
Download the app, scan the barcode on a physical card and the app will recognize and auto-select the retailer or you can key in the number. You can store photos of the front and back of the physical card as a back up, and type in notes for each retailer. I input all 20 of my loyalty cards in 20 minutes.
