Loyca UWP stores and syncs your cards and coupons

Published by at

This is a nicely produced new UWP application that... doesn't really work for me. But its effectiveness may be different in different countries, so I offer it here anyway. The idea is to scan, store, monitor and sync your store loyalty cards and coupons. 

From the Store description:

Loyca is a quick and simple way to get rid of all Loyalty cards inside your wallet. It manages all your coupons so that you will never miss another promotion again and even sync all your cards and coupons throughout all your devices!

The app scans your Loyalty Card (or Coupon) Barcode or QR code, so the next time you are at a checkout simply open the app and show it to the cashier .

  • STORE YOUR LOYALTY CARD - Clear your wallet from all your cards, Loyca enables you to store all your cards on your device.
  • COUPON MANAGEMENT - Don’t remember where you left that 50% off coupon? Loyca lets you manage your coupons, even notifies you when the coupon is expiring!
  • ALL YOUR DEVICES - Using Dropbox Loyca syncs all your card and coupon data to all your devices (Android, iOS and Windows).
  • SHARE WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS - Have a friend that could use that coupon that you don’t need? Just share it with Loyca and he will receive it on his device!

Hmm.... sounds good and the app is super-slick, integrating with your Windows 10 Mobile phone's camera to do all the scanning. I tried my Nectar card and it wasn't listed. I tried under 'Sainsburys' and then my card was scanned and stored. OK, making progress, so I rescued a bunch of coupons from my last Sainsburys shop and... none of them would 'scan'. At which point I'm stumped - with no easy way of getting these coupons in, I'm not sure what to do next. Except ask for data points from readers. Maybe this is skewed towards a USA system, where coupons are for money off rather than bonus 'loyalty points'?

A clean interface, though no dark mode, sadly. Plenty of 'smarts' here though, if your coupons can be accessed, at least. Sync is via Dropbox, interestingly, not OneDrive.

My (very worn!) Nectar card was recognised after a couple of tries....

No such luck on coupons though. I tried half a dozen vouchers/coupons and none were recognised. Your data points welcomed!
