Discount card applications are a very convenient way to free your wallet from unnecessary plastic. Discount cards are gradually becoming a thing of the past, and especially if it is possible to store information on the iPhone, then soon the need for them will disappear completely.
As part of marketing campaigns, such cards are distributed in stores to customers. Probably everyone will have a few in their bag or wallet. They can accumulate a lot, because of this part has to be moved to another place, as a result at the right time it is impossible to find the one you need now, and use it for its intended purpose.
Previously, reading information from the discount card was done using laser or tablet scanners. Today everything is arranged differently. During the emergence of new technologies began to use so-called photo scanners. With their help, the information is read from the photo, including from the phone screen.
As a result, no one needs plastic cards anymore. Discount card applications help store a lot of information.
