Stocard – a free app to store your loyalty and membership cards

Peggy Maggio, a YEI member, thought that the following would be useful to share with YEI members.  Stocard is a new and free app, on which one can store all of your loyalty and membership cards.  You scan all your loyalty cards in.  When you get to the till, open the app, find the relevant card, and the cashier scans it in.  It saves you from the hassle of keeping your cards in one place and then having to search for the relevant card.   Peggy is using Stocard and it is working perfectly!

The app is available on IOS and Android.

If you are using useful apps on your phone that make your life easier, do share them with us, by sending an email to
