    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.

    Stocard
    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.

    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.

    I have been using Stampuno Loyalty App for a while. I found Stampuno App more accurate compared to others.

    I see some people mentioning opening the app - this is totally unnecessary for the most part!

    You can add the cards to your Apple Wallet where they can be accessed simply by double tapping the home button while on the lock screen, the same way you would bring a payment card up.

    In the Stocard app, simply select the card and then press "Share card" and there is an option to add to Apple Wallet.
    The only card I've been unable to add this way is my Ikea Family card, and I suspect it's a limitation of Ikea rather than the app.

    I've been using Stocard for quite a while (probably more than a year). I find it works fine in Morrisons and Subway (though not always first time in either). I also used it once to capture the barcode of a frozen food item I wanted to query in-store, but not physically take back with me. Worked fine for that (and the CS person was impressed that it was even possible).

    I don't see any ads, I don't think, though I tend to go into the app, use the virtual card and close it down straight away, so perhaps there is no time for it to advertise anything. I turned off the location alert as it was just too annoying.
