I’d love to carry them all with me wherever I go, but I’m not a pack mule. I have cards in my purse, cards in my car’s glove box and cards I have to seek & find when I need them. I do, however, carry my phone everywhere. Yes, everywhere. Even there.
So it should come as no surprise that I love CardMobili—I can enter all of my card numbers into my account, share with the hubby on his own account for when it’s his turn to shop and download the iPhone app to use my cards at the store. Don’t have an iPhone?
No problem! It also works on Windows Mobile, Blackberry & java-based phones like Nokia, Samsung, LG and Motorola. You’ll be able to enter card numbers on the web or through your phone, then show the barcode or number at the store, when you need it. I prefer to enter mine on the web, since I’m faster at typing with a full keyboard.
I’ve seen apps that use the phone’s camera as a barcode scanner, which could be pretty handy when new cards come along. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for that update in the future. However, I would have used the web for this first entry session anyway—it’s just faster for me since I had to enter more than 25 cards.
And, that is why I don’t carry them all around in my purse! With my phone in my pocket, I’ll still have access to my cards everywhere I go. The service & application are free, and very easy to use. I’m setting the hubby up with his own account, too—his poor duct tape wallet could use a little relief from all those cards.
How many cards do you think you have?
