    Default Re: Passbook

    Hi there! I just started playing with Passbook yesterday...and when you go to the apps, I believe there should be 'send to Passbook' option. I only went to coupons.com/passbook and it shows coupons available, then I selected 'send to Passbook' and then when I open Passbook, the coupons are there...its kind of like a folder just for easy access of bar codes that need to be scanned or tickets etc.

    Hope that helps a little...

    seashell93 is correct. Somewhere in those app is an option to send the card / coupon to Passbook. What are the three apps you have, by the way?

    In the Starbucks app, select "Manage" and then select "view card in Passbook". I'm assuming you already have a Starbuck's card and a Starbuck's account online.

    In the Target app, click the tab at the bottom then My Target then Mobile Coupons. A list of specials will display and you can add these to Passbook. But with the Target app,, all of these coupons are added. So you don't pick and choose. These are updated about once a week.

    With coupons.com/passbook you can pick and choose. New coupons added almost daily

    Good Luck

    What problem? Are you saying that you cannot find a way to put cards & coupons into the Passbook app? If so, please follow the instructions above. If not, please be more specific with the problem you are having. Thanks.

    Oh okay. Thank you. I believe more companies will support Passbook in the very near future. At least I hope so ...

    Why NFC? All the places that I've used passbook don't have NFC terminals.

    I disagree that it needs NFC support to be relevant because it already is to those of us who use it regularly. Furthermore,

    "No more hunting through your wallet for gift cards, coupons, passes, or tickets. Passbook keeps everything organized ó and handy."

    That quote is found on the Apple website and, in my opinion, describes the function of Passbook. I agree that it is limited, but only by the current lack of retail support/integration because it does what it is designed to do.

    According to the , Nokia introduced the first NFC in 2006. That was over 6 years ago and yet, it adaptation has yet to be universally accepted & implemented. Will it be? The odds are in its favor, but only time will tell. Its success will depend on the willingness of consumers to use it and the frequent hacks into banks, online merchants and debit & credit card scanners both wirelessly & mechanically, are not helping matters, in my opinion.

    I'm sure they do, but how often is that feature used by consumers?

    Ringfinger,
    Make sure you check out coupons.com/passbook. They have about 40 coupons from over 25 merchants.
