I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Softcard. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
A couple of months ago I had THE worst thing in the world happen to me when I went shopping. Earlier that day, I had been going through my purse while I was at home. I had pulled all my credit cards out, and cleaned out my entire purse. Little did I know, my one credit card that I use all the time had fallen out on the floor. When I got to the store, I shopped like I normally planned to do. When I got to the cash register to pay for my purchases, I realized I didn’t have the card and had to leave all my purchases behind. It was horrible.
Had I had Softcard at that time, I would not have had to go through all of that.
This is Tappy. Tappy is the new Softcard Mascot and can help you learn more about Softcard’s capabilities.
Softcard is a free app that makes it easier than ever to pay for purchases with a tap of your phone. Simply add participating credit cards from American Express, Chase®, or Wells Fargo® to Softcard or set up an American Express Serve® Account that lets you add money with your preferred debit card, credit card or U.S. bank account.
Softcard uses NFC (near field communication) technology to send payment info at checkout. You can pay with Softcard anywhere you see the contactless symbol ( Click here to find participating retail locations in your area!)
What all can I upload to Softcard?
I downloaded this app and can’t tell you how much I already love it. I like having all my payment options right in one place — at the touch of my phone. I also love having all my membership and reward cards loaded up onto this app . I used to have a handful of loyalty cards, but now I have uploaded all of them to Softcard. While I don’t have many options to use this in my hometown, I am always visiting other cities where I can use it.
My son is thoroughly enjoying it when he goes to McDonald’s. He is all the time forgetting his money but by using Softcard, he simply just lays his phone right up on the payment kiosk and pays for his meal. It’s as easy as 1,2,3,.
Softcard is the new way to pay for things in the future. Instead of being scared of it, I decided to embrace it and our whole family loves it! For holiday shopping, you simply can’t beat using your phone for all your payment needs. It makes the shopping experience much easier and less stressful. If you fly a lot too, you can also save yourself time by uploading your frequent flier and hotel loyalty cards at home and then you can access them all with Softcard at check-in.
Where can I use Softcard?
You can use Softcard at over 275,000 locations where contactless payments are accepted. You can actually search for stores within the Softcard app to see if your store allows you to pay this way. I love the prepaid card option as well! You can set it up and add money from your preferred credit, debit or bank account. This is a great way to budget for your purchases!
Don’t forget about the savings!
You can apply saving to your purchase right from your phone. You can search the app for savings at your store and your coupons will be taken off at the register (kind of like how they do at Kroger with their digital loyalty cards).
I hate it when I don’t have a coupon or worse than that — I walk right out of the house and forget it! This way your coupons are always with you. Softcard simplifies how we pay AND helps us to save money!
What about you? Have you use Softcard yet? What do you think about it?
