Holiday Shopping Made Easy with Softcard #IC #Softcard #ad

Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Softcard. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

There's a new, easier way to shop!

Just keep your eyes peeled for this guy: 

Tappy Wave

Tappy is the new Softcard Mascot and can help you learn more about Softcard’s capabilities. You can see him in action here
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 to 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!)

Here's a video tutorial: 

As an added bonus, Softcard helps you find money-saving offers from participating merchants on the device you always have with you. Add your loyalty, membership and rewards cards and cut the clutter from your bag. You can also view your balance for select loyalty programs. Your cards have the same fraud and lost/stolen safeguards you currently enjoy. Plus, Softcard is PIN-protected, and if your phone is lost or stolen, one call to your mobile carrier or a quick visit to our website can disable Softcard.

I think this is the best part of the app: coupons and offers are available on the app at the touch of your fingers! Here's a good video explaining how it works:

I downloaded this app and find it easy-peasy to navigate. I like having all my payment options at the touch of my phone, as well as my membership and reward cards loaded up onto this app (and not scattered throughout my purse). I see the future of payment in Softcard and I like it! For holiday shopping, you simply can't beat using your phone as a one stop payment center: I like using Softcard in place of credit cards and having all my loyalty cards and even some offers/coupons within easy reach makes the shopping experience much easier and streamlined. Save yourself another headache while traveling this holiday season and upload your frequent flier and hotel loyalty cards at home and access them all with Softcard at check-in.

In my Chicago neighborhood, thankfully many places are already ready to accept Softcard payments. ( Click here to find participating retail locations in your area!). I ran to pick up some last minute stocking stuffers at Walgreens, stopped for gas at BP, did some grocery shopping at Armitage foods, and then stopped for a quick bite at Las Islas Marias....all that without even having to pull out my wallet!!! It was awesome! Even my dentist accepts Softcard! 

Give it a try and let me know what you think! And here's an added bonus: Get a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card for tapping to pay five times with Softcard™ using the same participating credit card. Keep tapping to pay and earn up to $30 per participating credit card. Offer expires December 31, 2014. See here for details.
