    I've tried a couple of apps like this, the scanner couldn't read my screen. Starbucks has a special scanner to read phone screens. Will your's work consistently?

    Save also your loyalty stamp cards with FidMe

    Hi everybody,

    It’s a pleasure to announce you FidMe is now the French leader on loyalty cards dematerialization, with 1 400 000 users all around the world. It’s a big step since the 240 000 French users cecile told you one year ago :)

    About 6 month ago, after hours and hours working, the 3rd version of FidMe was finally available, with all new features claimed by users:

    - You can now also save your loyalty stamp cards! Scan code replaces traditional ink pad and adds visually on your FidMe stamp card.
    - Search by name or geolocation around you to add the card of your favorite retailer or discover new ones.
    - A new ergonomic completely reworked.
    - Manage your account on www.fidme.com. Customers: access to your cards, create and custom them. Retailers: create your own loyalty card! Online tools, statistics, account management, everything is available on the website.
    - High security level (username and password required for the first launch).
    - Notifications to never miss any offer.
    - Checks, stamps, sponsoring, hundreds of opportunities to earn FidMe points!
    - New skins to customize your FidMe!

    More than 7 000 shops have already their stamp cards on FidMe or are being recorded, some in US. You can find one of them in Los Angeles, Sandwich, Salem, Woodburn, Keizer, Fresno,… the list is growing !

    Your favorite retailer is not on FidMe? You can suggest adding it, from FidMe app, in the stamp cards part. Your retailer will receive a notification, saying its customers are asking for the shop on FidMe.

    So go in your App Store to download FidMe3! FidMe is still free and with no ads.

    If you have any question, don’t hesitate to contact us on our website www.fidme.com or at support@fidme.com. I will also answer here.

    Starbuck's scanner is not unique or special, its an imager, there are many of these on the market. Its essentially a video camera that then digitally processes, the video stream quickly to detect 1D amd 2D barcodes.

    Laser scanners are what don't work well on the phone screens.

    My experience with CardStar which is the same type of app is that about 50% of places can read the barcode off a phone screen. Dick's Sporting Goods can, Staples can't, FedEx can, Rite-Aid can't, etc.

    Thanks for your feedback.
    The good news is stores gradually equip themselves with proper equipment in response to many and insistent demands of their customers ;)
    That's for the loyalty card part of the app.

    With FidMe loyalty stamp cards, there is no problem. It's the user who scan a QR code with its mobile, or use NFC, to add a new stamp.
