Black Friday has passed and the holiday shopping season is in full swing. The Softcard Mobile Wallet app*, a joint venture between Verizon and two other major wireless carriers, is a great way to cash in on some holiday savings.
You can access Softcard on the Google Play Store. It’s available on top smartphones like Droid Turbo and Sony Xperia Z3v. Softcard lets you pay directly from your smartphone as well as access brand loyalty cards, mobile coupons and special offers from local retailers.
To complete a transaction, you simply open the app, select the desired credit card and tap your phone on the terminal at the point of purchase, using your existing cards and accounts to buy your items.
So, how can Softcard help you save this holiday season? Here are two ways:
1. Softcard can store numerous brand loyalty cards, helping to make sure you always get your rewards for being a frequent shopper.
2. Softcard can help you access mobile coupons for retailers and load them onto an account so you automatically receive the savings. No need to remember to clip, sort and carry paper coupons.

*UPDATE: Google and Softcard have completed an agreement that will leverage the best technology from both companies to create a more robust mobile wallet for consumers. The mobile payment system will keep the Google Wallet name. Read more here.
