KeyRing: An App To Store Loyalty Cards On iPhone/Android

Ads by Google

If you’ve got a bunch of loyalty cards from different stores then you’ll know that carrying them around all the time isn’t fun. But if you don’t do it, you might miss out on some good deals.

Key Ring is an innovative iPhone/Android application that aims to address this concern. It creates a digital copy of all your loyalty cards and stores them on your iPhone or Android based phone (it has separate apps for both of them). Retailers can scan the barcodes right from your cellphone screen, thus sparing you the hassle of carrying the cards.

The app uses bar code scanner technology to store your cards. It also has what it calls the CardGuard for remote data backup of all the information related to your cards. It also helps to restore the information on a new cellphone. And the best part – all this is available for the right price – $0.

The biggest reason I got this app was so retailers could scan right from the phone. Unfortunately, this has not worked with any of the stores (10) that I frequent, including Best Buy, on a Droid 1.

Unfortunately, when you combine the variables of phone type, scanner type, and ambient lighting it can result in situations where the phone won’t scan. In situations where a scanner won’t work most retailers are ok with typing in the number, so you still get the benefit of not having to carry around your cards.

The good news is that technology to scan a barcode off any type of phone is available today. Scanners at places like CVS, Target, Toys R US, and Kroger work very well – others are catching up. While it’s not going to happen overnight, we think this is where things are going.

Just FYI – starting this month we will begin rolling out loyalty programs which you can enroll in directly from Key Ring. These will all be certified to work at the point of sale leaving no doubt in a users mind if it will work.
