How heavy and stuffed is your wallet? With all the important cards you need including your driver’s license, debit card, health cards, membership cards, where do you have room in your wallet for credit cards, gift cards and loyalty cards?

UGO Wallet is a free mobile app that gives you the convenience of having a “virtual wallet”.  You can store loyalty cards, credit cards and now – store gift cards – all on your smartphone. You can quickly pay for items, collect and redeem rewards points without fumbling through your wallet or purse.

Gift cards are hugely popular, especially during the holiday season. Many gift cards don’t get redeemed because they’re either lost or misplaced. By storing the cards on the UGO Wallet app on your smartphone, they are always easily accessible. You never have to worry about missing an opportunity to use them, and you can be sure to use every bit of the card’s balance.

Make small payments easily and conveniently with UGO Wallet. Using participating credit cards on compatible Android and Blackberry phones, anywhere you could use a tap and pay credit card, you can use UGO Wallet – usually up to a $100 payment. And it’s as secure as paying with your credit card.

How many times have you made a purchase and forgotten a loyalty card at home? Or remembered you had a gift card at home that you could’ve used on a purchase? Now you don’t have to miss out on the chance to collect points or redeem gift cards again, thanks to this convenient mobile app. With the exception of payment cards, you can back up all cards securely to the UGO Cloud. If you ever change devices, they can easily be restored.

All you have to do is scan your cards to the app and you’re done! Simply open the app when checking out, have the cashier scan the barcode, and collect and/or redeem points, use a gift card or credit card to make a payment. And if the retailer ever has trouble scanning your loyalty or gift cards, they can simply key them in.

With UGO Wallet, you can:

  • store and use gift cards;
  • collect and redeem points on loyalty cards; and
  • make payments at participating retailers.

  1. Thanks for the tip! I’m always forgetting something but always have my phone. This would be so useful for me!

  2. This is great! I usually use passbook, the built in feature on the iPhone, for this but I wonder if some of the stuff you can’t use passbook for would work with this. Otherwise I may be converting!

    Sounds like my life just got a whole lot easier. I can’t wait to sign up for this and start using it.

      Right?! It’s happened to me many times – then I’ll keep the receipt thinking I’ll go back to apply the gift card or loyalty card, but I never do.

  4. Wow this sounds like it would save a lot of time and space. I have a ridiculous number of cards to sort through every time I want to use a gift card.

  5. This would be a great app for me to have on my phone because I have so many loyalty cards, that I can not carry them all at once.

      Exactly. You’re going to carry your phone all the time, so why not store all your cards on your phone? Very convenient.

    Wow! That’s really cool. I’ve never heard of an app like this before. How convenient!

  7. Oh I love these store card organisers we have so much junk in our wallet these days… ever store wants you to have their own loyalty card its crazy!!

  8. Oh how I need this. I am so incredibly sick of lugging around so many different loyalty cards–would love to have them all combined in one online place. Will definitely look into this!

  9. I agree with you about gift cards getting lost or misplaced. It’s good that you can store them on the UGO Wallet app. I will download the app.

      Very smart! Great way to organize your wallet and lighten the load. And you’ll never forget to use them!

  10. I’m always trying to find ways to space in my purse. This sounds like this would help a lot. Thanks for sharing!
