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….
