Name: Key Ring
Consumers tend to carry around cards for retailers or venues they frequent on a regular basis, including gyms, boutiques, drug stores and grocery stores. The Key Ring Rewards Card application makes a digital copy of those cards so that you can leave the physical cards at home.
You can download the free app and use it to scan the barcodes on your loyalty and club cards. To get started, select “Add Card” and click yes or no to specify whether or not the card in question has a barcode. If it does, the app will then let you scan the barcode, identify the retailer and create a digital copy. If the card doesn’t have a barcode, you can manually input the membership ID in lieu of the barcode scan.
After inputting all your cards, you’re left with a single mobile phone repository of all your various cards. When visiting any of the retailers you’ve created mobile loyalty cards for, you can simply have them scan the barcode from your phone to retrieve your account information.
The Key Ring offering is simple and painless. The service even includes an online account manager and card backup system. Eventually users will be able to password-protect individual cards. Mobestream Media is also planning to partner with businesses and retailers to offer King Ring-specific loyalty programs for real-time coupons or discounts.
Practically speaking, Key Ring is a simple way to get rid of the paper and plastic cards weighing down your wallet.
