It’s bound to happen to you at some point. Heck, it happens to me all the time.
I’m out and about shopping at my favourite stores. I’ve loaded merchandise into my cart; I’m congratulating myself on finding the *perfect* sweater and trendiest heels. I’m even feeling a little smug, knowing that I have a gift card to offset some of the costs. And just as I reach the checkout, in full I am so awesome mode, I remember… what I’ve forgotten.
I forgot to bring the gift card!
Has this ever happened to you? Sure it has. Because despite our best intentions, life is busy, and we don’t always want to lug around a heavy wallet filled with stuff. I mean, what if your wallet was nicked? You’d be giving away not only your identity… but your gift cards! To Sephora! To Winners! To Milestones! Those belong to YOU, dammit!
Enter UGO Wallet. The app now allows you to quickly add your loyalty and gift cards to your smartphone, and if you have a compatible phone, you can add participating credit cards to make small payments easily at many retailers with just a tap of your phone. Then, organize them any way you want so you can easily pull ‘em up right when you need them. By storing the cards on UGO Wallet, they are always easily accessible and you never have to worry about missing an opportunity to use them. Bonus: You can use every bit of your balance – and who doesn’t want to maximize all their spending potential?
Uploading your gift card to UGO is as easy as 1-2-3. First, make sure you have the UGO Wallet app! It’s completely free and takes seconds to download. Next, select your vendor and follow the prompts to either scan or manually input your gift card number. The app will return an error message if you try to upload the wrong bar code or serial number, so it’s pretty foolproof.
When you have successfully entered your gift card, you’re all done! You can now access it directly from your smartphone. Upload as many as you please, and organize them in a way that makes sense to you. This service is absolute GOLD for the following reasons:
1. Bye bye bulk! Think of how much space you’ll save in your wallet by consolidating all your gift cards onto your smartphone. Plus, it’s a much more secure way to hold onto your money, especially if your phone is password protected (and really, whose isn’t?).
2. You’re more likely to use your gift cards down to the very last penny if you’re not having to carry around cards with a balance of say, $1.06. I’ll admit, I’ve tossed gift cards with teeny amounts simply because I don’t want the inconvenience of multiple cards weighing down my wallet. Never again!
3. “Lost” doesn’t mean “gone”! You can backup and restore your loyalty, gift and other cards in the UGO Wallet. The UGO Cloud feature lets you save your cards, and you can then use the new “restore” feature if you ever need to change devices.
Remember, you can store all of your gift cards and loyalty cards, so you can save money and earn points every time you shop at your favourite stores. It’s a win-win! And if you need more help, you can always check out UGO Wallet How-To Videos on YouTube.
With Christmas just around the corner, chances are you’ll receive a gift card or two (or ten). And now you know what to do with them! Download the UGO Wallet app, upload your gift cards, and get spending! UGO makes it easy.

I’ve not heard of this app before and that surprises me as my son, an adult, seems to know about all these savings apps. I think this is a superb idea, I’ll get my son to look into it for me. :-)

Sounds great! I’ll be looking into it further later in the day! Thanks
