    Absolutely, MSE isn't just about loyalty cards, but this thread is!

    Another potentially useful tip that might help someone on here. If you're planning on going out to eat at any chain establishment, check to see if they have an app before you go, ideally 24 hours before you go.

    A lot of chain restaurants seem to have apps nowadays, and tend to email you a money off voucher on registration.

    There is advertising running through the app all the time making it annoying when you come to use it.

    There are no instructions on how to add custom cards.

    Didn't work in the first store I tried to use the app in and you have to type in your password every time you want to use it.

    I will try it again but so far am not impressed !

    Doesn't work in my local Boots, Co Op, Tesco, Sainsbury's, or superdrug.

    Waste of time IMHO, I have to still carry my cards around as staff don't always have time to manually type in everytime.

    Came in handy today, popped to Sainsbury's and didn't have my key fob with me, which also meant I couldn't use my triple points spit. Then remembered the app, scanned fine at a manned checkout so got my std points and bonus ones.

    The issue a lot of you are facing is probably more to do with the scanners in user rather than the app itself. The stores need to have more modern scanners that will scan off a phone screen rather than the cards. The way the phone reflects back stops the older scanners working and picking up the details from your screen. Newer scanners can read them.

    Its a great idea for an app...let down by the shops technology i think.

    I agree it is an irritating, and rather bloated app. I suspect there are better alternatives available.

    So far not great (I've had it a week). Did not work at Sainsbury's self service (I typed the number in). At Costa they told me that for both Costa card and the AA 20% off they need to swipe the actual card. Not a good start....

    Only just started using the Stocard app, I've so far found it works in HMV and Waterstones, but not yet in my local CoOp.

    I've found the App tends to work better in stores that have a handheld scanner, then a built in one.
