Tip of the Day: Use Passbook to Collect Loyalty Cards on Your iPhone

I love using Wallet. Instead of my actual wallet or keychain getting weighed down with shopper loyalty cards, the Wallet app stores them all in one place, no plastic required. Here's how to switch from plastic to the Wallet app.

If you already have a card, open your Wallet app. Next to Passes, tap the plus symbol in the upper, right corner.

Select Scan Code to Add a Pass, then position your camera over the card’s barcode. If it’s a Wallet-accepted card it will automatically be entered into your Passes.

  

When you are in the checkout line at the store, select your card and either scan it at the register or hold your phone out for the clerk to scan.

Another option after tapping the plus symbol in Wallet is to choose Find Apps for Wallet. This will take you to the App Store and a variety of apps compatible with Wallet. You will find everything from Starbucks to Ticketmaster.
