PhotoHunt: Card(s)

Store Rewards Cards are a great cost saver, but they can take up a lot of space in my wallet and sometimes I don't even have the card with me. 

One day I was at the check out stand at my local grocery store and I didn't have my rewards card with me.  As a joke I told the checker that someone should create an iPhone application for this. He said that someone already has and he showed me his iPhone with this application on it called Key Ring Reward Card.

This application allows me to scan the bar codes onto my iPhone so I don't have to carry all of my Rewards Cards with me.  Here's a screen shot of my entries.  Pretty cool!  Now all I have to do is not forget to bring my phone with me. :)

  1. I don't have many store cards -- but I have a lot of restaurant discount cards! (I guess it shows that I eat out more than I shop for stuff besides groceries (my only store card is for a grocery store chain)...) ;O

  2. Hi Kathy, you left me wondering if they have Store Rewards Cards here in Australia. Since I do most of my shopping at the market I've never noticed. I do know that we have Coffee Club Cards and my wallet is full of them!
    Hope you had a good trip to Portland and have a good weekend.

  3. Hi girls, thanks so much for your comments . . . .

    YTSL, that's interesting. Every store where I lives has them now and sometimes they can amount to up to $10 in savings depending on the products you buy. More money for travel. :) I think I only have one card for a restaurant, not a lot like you have. I guess you do eat out more often. :) Lucky you.

    Maya, I don't think I have any coffee club cards. How interesting. That's funny how the YTSL has restaurant cards, I have store cards and you have Coffee Club cards... :) Portand is a realy pretty and nice city and I wouldn't mind living there. I used to live in Washington State while attending school and made a couple of trips to Eugene and probably drove right by Portland heading to LA. I'm so glad I had a chance to visit. There's like a starbucks on every corner....:)

    Thanks again girls. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

  4. What a cool idea. My complaint about all of those reward cards is thta there are so many and I always take the one I need out BEFORE I leave home for one reason or another.

  5. Hi Jerry, LOL. that is also my problem, I switch wallets on the weekends and other times when I don't need the full on wallet and that is usually when I find the need to go to the store without their rewards card. But I always carry my phone with me so I think this is a great solution, unless of course I forget to take my phone. :)

    Thanks so much for your comments and have a great Sunday.

  6. They really do make an app for almost everything! Cool take on the theme.

  7. Hi Annie, thanks so much for your comments...yes I would have to agree. There is probably an app for just about anything. :) Have a great day today.

  8. Very cool idea! Will have to check it out. I carry a second little wallet just for all my silly cards.

  9. Hi Girasoli, oh I could not carry two wallets. You should definitely check this app out so you can leave that 2nd wallet at home. :)


It's me Trekcapri (aka Kathy). Thanks so much for visiting and leaving a comment.
