Black Friday has passed and the holiday shopping season is in full swing. The Softcard Mobile Wallet app, a joint venture between Verizon and two other major wireless carriers, has arrived in time to give you some new options for holiday saving.
You can access the Softcard app from the Google Play Store to be used on one of the 15 Softcard-ready smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S4 and several from the DROID family. To use the app, you need an enhanced SIM, available from My Verizon or at a Verizon Wireless retail store. Once you have Softcard, you can pay directly from your smartphone as well as access brand loyalty cards, mobile coupons and special offers from local retailers.
To complete a transaction, you simply open the app, select the desired credit card and tap your phone on the terminal at the point of purchase, using your existing cards and accounts to buy your items.
So, how can Softcard help you save this holiday season? Here are two ways:
1. Softcard can store numerous brand loyalty cards, helping to make sure you always get your rewards for being a frequent shopper.
2. Softcard can help you access mobile coupons for retailers and load them onto an account so you automatically receive the savings. No need to remember to clip, sort and carry paper coupons.
