A brilliant way to store your loyalty cards

I do like a good loyalty program, some have huge benefits like I mentioned yesterday in my post about organising & tidying up your loyalty programs.  You can earn points from retailers, your credit card, flybuys, Velocity Frequent Flyer, etc. which can be redeemed for discounts, product, flights and more. Every point earned can add up to something significant so it’s worth taking the time to collect the points, as in the long run it will help your budget!

These days a lot of retailers have their own loyalty program. Most give you a membership card to use each time you shop in store so you can collect reward points. The programs have great benefits, but having all those extra cards in your purse can be frustrating and heavy, which may result in you not keeping them in your purse and then missing out on points. I have a solution; it works brilliantly and my purse is now so much lighter and less bulky.

I use the Stocard app. They have a list of 100’s of retailers all relevant to Australia.

Search for the retailer and simply scan the barcode from your card into the app. I then store my card away in my office drawer. It makes my purse feel so much lighter.

Present your card via the Stocard app at the cash register and collect your points. Stocard App is available on Google Play and in the App Store.

You know me, I like to label! I have labelled sections in my purse to hold, work receipts, home receipts and vouchers. This saves me from getting home and work receipts mixed up together and then I can easily transfer the receipts from my purse to my bill organiser.

Keeping vouchers, such as my Crossroads $5 off your next purchase or Target and Kmart, in a labelled section of my purchase helps me to remember to use it and ensures it doesn’t get lost amongst all my other receipts.

I have this app and its great, only problems is Woolworth’scanner don’t scan the card, but they can enter the number off the app. Also the Velocity cards don’t scan either! But a great app!

Now that is a good idea! I keep my fistful of cards that I don’t use often in a business card folder. My Costco and Woolies cards are kept in my purse. I don’t like having a purse full of unnecessary cards so I was excited to find a way to get all those semi-useless things out of it and stored somewhere accessible, but not in my face. But that app looks like an even better idea again.

I’m already using this App but, like others here, have encountered quite a few places that don’t scan from it. 🙁

I have been using Stocard for years. Love it. All the cards with swipe metal strips or are ones that are paper and get a stamp I hole punch and have on a metal ring in the bottom of my bag. Keeps them together and easy to find. Just do not punch hole on the metal strip!

That’s a good idea Rachael! It’s nice just having the most important cards in your wallet to save some room.

I just scanned all my cards in. My purse is so much lighter now that I think I could even buy a smaller one, which will make my handbag less heavy. Thanks for the great tip!

I have an IPhone 7 so I just added my loyalty cards and credit cards into my phone. The apps use my location and the loyalty cards automatically pop up on my screen for me to use. Extremely convenient and I can pay with my stored credit card with Apple Pay. Thus removing the need to even carry a purse in.

Love this idea! I have my most frequently used cards in my wallet, taking up far too much space, then another batch in a drawer. I would love to replace them all with an app.

I have been using the Stocard app for a number of years, even when it will not scan the shops will just use the number from the app. It is also useful for other cards that may take up room in your wallet too like the Medicare card that you have to quote so often for when you need to fill out a form for a school excursion (though I do also keep that in my wallet). Some cards like gloria jeans will now keep a track of your points too.
