If you love to shop, you likely use far more than one loyalty card to make sure you get points while shopping at your favorite retailers. Now Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 device owners have a way to collect all those reward cards into one place, thanks to the recently launched Stocard app.
The app, which was previously released for iOS and Android, uses a phone's camera to scan the plastic reward cards the owner might have in his or her wallet. Once that is done, the app then allows the use to simply take their smartphone and have the screen scanned during checkout to obtain reward points for each card. Stocard has over 900 pre-set card setups for retailers such as Best Buy, Starbucks, CVS, Walgreens and much more.
The app, which does not require a separate registration to use, has been made for the US, UK, Canada and Australia markets. Stocard does point out that the app can only be used if a retailer uses an image scanner for its reward cards. Older laser or flatbed scanners won't work with the smartphone app.
You can download the free Stocard app right now from the Windows Phone Store. Is this app a nice addition for people who have a ton of reward cards?
