I am always a big fan of new apps that are designed to make my life more simple and I think I have found the exact one to manage all my gift and rewards cards in one place. It's called SWAGG. SWAGG will "track all of your balances and organize your cards with ease". I cannot tell you how many times I have added Sharpie marker numbers to my plastic gift cards so I know what my remaining balance is. With SWAGG, all of my Sharpie pen marks are ancient history.
An added bonus to this app is that SWAGG offers you access to over 3,500 merchants. If you don't like that gift certificate you received for the holidays, why not swap it for a gift card to a store you frequent? Or if you need a last minute birthday gift, you can immediately send a gift certificate. You can choose the store for the birthday girl or even let them choose all from your Smart Phone. It's that simple!
The app is free in the iPhone app store or in the Droid Market, but there's even more. This summer, SWAGG is teaming up with American Eagle to give about $100,000 in gift cards to more than 2,500 winners. You could win a gift card valued at $25-$1000, but you have to enter to win.
Here's how to enter:
1. Download the SWAGG app from the App Store or Android Market for FREE. Enter the promo code on the "Enter Promotional Card" tab: AEOSS.
2. If you don't have a Smart Phone or mobile access you can create a free account at SWAGG and enter the following link: http://www.swagg.com/aeopromo.php
3. Don't DELAY! The sweepstakes began June 23rd and it ends in 3 short days. Get your entry in by July 10th, 2011.
