I have a second purse just for the loyalty cards from the supermarkets, store groups, coffee shops, etc – and that’s just for the UAE. I also have a separate pile of cards for the UK. It’s all space wasting and energy sapping. Then I found out about Key Ring. Key Ring is an app for your mobile phone devices where you can save all your loyalty cards (that do not need stamps). You scan the back and front of the card and Read More
