I recently told you about a new Iphone/Droid app, rightfully named Swagg, where you can store all of your gift cards and loyalty cards, all in one place! You can also send and receive gifts right from your phone! I thought it was an amazing idea, as I’m always walking around with at least 10 gift cards in my wallet. Every time I get to the cashier, I find myself digging through my wallet and many times I just get frustrated and think “oh, I’ll just use it next time”.
That’s not cool.
So with the introduction of Swagg, I emptied my wallet of gift cards and loyalty cards, and entered them into the Swagg app. I loaded my Albertson’s card, Vons card, and a multitude of gift cards including Victoria’s Secret, Applebees, Starbucks and an eclectic array of others.
I set out to test it.
First, I hit Starbucks, because I’m there everyday anyways (don’t judge). I opened the app and tapped on my Starbucks card. It then opted me to login (love this safety feature). Once logged in, my phone brought up a barcode screen and a screen with the gift card number itself (either can be used). I held up my Iphone with the barcode displayed and the cashier scanned my phone! <—— she scanned my phone!!!
That is cool.
A few moments later, I was enjoying a refreshing beverage from my favorite barista and I didn’t have to dig through my wallet to find my payment method. I’ve also found Swagg to be very convenient while grocery shopping. I can simply whip out my phone and show the cashier my virtual loyalty card and be on my way.
Ready to try Swagg?
You can download Swagg here. It’s seriously the coolest thing since sliced bread. If you do download the app, you’ll want to head over and visit our first Swagg Post and leave a comment letting me know that you downloaded the app. If we are the blog that gets the most comments, I will have the opportunity to give one of YOU a $100 Swagg gift card to be used at a number of retailers!
