So people in the US are starting to see the benefits of passbook, has anyone found a use for it in the UK, or any apps that UK businesses (or even UK variants of US businesses eg. Starbucks) allow use of? Clicking "Find Apps" in the passbook app simply lists about 4 useless apps...

I asked The AA if they planned to do membership cards, they said it is something they will be looking into.

At least they didn't say 'what is it?' :)

No usefulness whatsoever, thus far!

To be honest, I can't see that changing for a while.

Bought a Clickteez t-shirt. Only cost 4 quid.

Once ordered you get another Passbook card showing your order status.

Starbucks is going to bring Passbook support to us in the UK soon.
Also Tesco is going to be revamping their apps and also adding passbook support soon.
