I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Softcard. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
As the holiday season rolls around and the holiday shopping mayhem kicks into full gear, you’re probably starting to make your lists and check them twice. If you’re anything like me, you spend time just trying to keep your cards and money straight as you head off to the store to tick things off your list and ensure that you don’t miss anything.
What if there was a way to pay for your holiday shopping without breaking the bank AND without having to use anything else but your smartphone? Check out Softcard. It’s a free app that lets you pay using your phone, save with special offers, and store all of your store loyalty, membership, and rewards cards. How much smaller does your purse become by consolidating all of those in an easy-to-click app. The app can be downloaded on Android and Windows devices with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless service providers.
Even better, use Softcard in any of more than 275,000 stores where contactless payments are accepted. Softcard holds offers and store loyalty cards, so you can get loyalty points without having to carry around multiple cards and coupons.

So where does Softcard work and how can you make it work simply for you once you’ve loaded your cards? Simply head to the website and check out what’s near your location that will accept Softcard payments. With a quick search of my location, I was able to find about 30 places that took this form of payment and all were within a one mile radius to my home – everything from McDonald’s to grocery stores to doctor’s offices and more. The convenience of being able to pay on the go and quickly without having to dig something out of my purse makes this app all the more appealing to me – especially as a busy mom on-the-go.
While out and about, I frequently lose my cards within my wallet and purse and find that the Softcard app is the perfect way to pay on the go and it has everything I need in a jif. With a quick swipe, I was able to add my Chase freedom card along with my debit card with ease. It’s easy to load cards and get them when you’re ready to go! One of my favorite elements was when I recently went to the Mall and I could quickly scroll through and see which stores had current offers. At Aeropostale, I was able to receive $10 off a $40 purchase and 20% off Toys R Us clearance toys. The savings is huge!
The Softcard app combines easy pay as you go with couponing and store rewards cards. It’s also simple to find stores because they are organized alphabetically or I can simply search for one that I’m looking for. A small green tag icon indicates a special coupon or offer available. I love that Softcard does the legwork of savings FOR me! Now that my husband uses it, we never have to be worried that we are without payment when we need it – especially during those times when we forget our wallets or purse (has DEFINITELY happened to me!)
Don’t forget to add your loyalty cards. No need to enter your phone number for the cashier each time, just scan your app! I also love that you’re able to find the information quickly and ensure it’s safety through encryption technology. Holiday shopping is a breeze because I don’t have to worry about making sure I have enough cash on me, I simply pull out my app, pay and go!
How would your life be made simpler if you could pay with your phone? Where do you think you’d shop if you could do so with just the touch of a button?
