Tools, Gadgets, and Widgets - Key Ring

I'm not one for shopping in stores especially if I have to produce a frequent shopper card to get specials or discounts. (Personally, I think all shoppers who visit a store are entitled to all promotions whether they frequent the store or run in for a quick errand). The worst part is carrying around all those cards, and then fumbling at the register to find the right card.

If you have a smartphone, you can easily download and carry all your shopping cards without fear of bursting your wallet. Key Ring is a free app for iPhone and Android users. Using your app, scan all your shopping cards. They are now located all in one spot, all specials are automatically loaded onto the card. While waiting in line at the register, simply call up the app, find the card and show it to the cashier. The cashier can use the hand scanner to record your purchases for marketing. The cashier can also manually key your shopping number, if the hand scanner doesn't work.  Key Ring is a win-win for all. Marketing can track your purchases, and you won't suffer muscle strain carrying around all your cards.


  1. This is the coolest AP ever! I'm downloading it NOW! Thank you!

  2. Half the time I forget my phone, just like I forget my coupons. But I always have my keychain (which is where I have my rewards cards) if I didn't I wouldn't be in the store! LOL
