“Loop simplifies life, with the World’s 1st Mobile Wallet that Securely Stores all your cards and lets you use them at 90% of Retailers. You’ll love Loop because you can store and organize all your cards on your smartphones, and use them just about everywhere. It simply works on 90%+ of merchants without them changing anything on their systems. It is secure, convenient (less plastic to carry), cool, and it can help you find great deals from your favorite merchants.
Simply swipe in, or scan in all those cards in our wallets or laying around in drawers or pockets (payment, IDs, Membership and Loyalty cards). The LoopWallet doesn’t get fatter with more cards loaded like our leather wallets do, and it can provide better interactions with participating card issuers and merchants that provide real-time data on balance, available credit and even deals and rewards. Loop is all about making life easier.”
