    Not me. I've been using the Keyring app for a while, even when I had my Android devices, so I'm used to displaying my cards via my phone. Besides and as you've stated, the store clerks are used to it, especially at CVS, Best Buy, GNC & Food Lion.
    Thanks for mentioning key Ring, this app is great. I can't believe I just came across it. Will try it as soon as possible

    You have to sign up for their rewards program using the app and then you'll have the option to add it to Passbook.
    FINALLY!! I didn't realize you had to sign up for their rewards program. I do have an online account with them but I didn't think the rewards program was separate.

    Hey thought id share this. I got an update to an app it's called Valpak it's an app that gets coupons to business in your area there update was for integration with passbook. I found some coupons and there was a button to add to passbook and it added the coupon to passbook. Might want to try it out see how it works for you guys if you want to use passbook.

    Today I finally got to use passbook. It was with a Walgreens rewards card but it worked flawlessly, and my entire purchase was saved to my Walgreens account. Very handy.
    The only issue I had was I felt a little like a ****** pulling my phone out to have my card scanned but the cashier didn't even bat an eyelash. This will be very handy if it ever becomes widely adopted.

    I tried using it last week by going to Target, and it was a complete failure. As I parked I was expecting to get a notification, but didn't. I did my shopping and I let the cashier scan the coupon but the discounts didn't apply. So the employee just entered the discounts manually. I'm hoping I have better success tomorrow at Starbucks

    A lot of stores have the old red laser which will not read the bar code off the phone. Only place I was able to use keyring is toys R us. Wish stores would upgrade to optical lasers.

    I'm finding the same thing however they can always key in by hand I suppose. Also, I hear having a screen protector can affect it?

    Ok, hang on......You were successful at S&S? I always go to the self checkout and it wouldn't read my code - I tried quite a few times before I gave up and broke out my key card. Now also I was at CVS this weekend, and instead of using my cvs app, I used the one in KeyRing, the clerk had the gun and it still wouldn't scan. I reverted to my cvs app at that point.

    Idk, I've had the CVS app for about a mth now, and never had a problem scanning with my phone with the screen prot I have on it. But I had a prob with KeyRing. Idk.

    How u add it ?
    In the Starbucks app on the gift card page you will see manage. It's in there to add to passbook. If you have more than one card you have to do them individually.

    I thought it was cool how my Walgreens card popped up on my lockscreen when I got to the store
    when you added it to passbook, did you allow it to pop-up when you get to a location? when I added my starbucks card I said no to that option. wasn't sure if that was going to drain the battery more if it is tracking my location.

    i see that being useful when you go to the theater though.

    I don't know about Shop&Shop and I've never heard of it. As for CVS, I have never had a problem using the keyring app there and I've used it at CVS stores in both Florida & here in North Carolina. Don't have a problem using it at Food Lion, Best Buy, Lids, The Vitamin Shoppe and a couple of other places either. I guess I've just been lucky.......Anyway, give it another try and see what happens.

    D, nice to see you!! you've been MIA the past few days lol.

    As for KeyRing, yes indeed I'm gonna give it another go-I really do like the app and would love to be able to utilize it as long as it can scan for me next time *crossing my fingers*

    ...I decided to take a break from the iMore forums yesterday and although I was tempted to login on several occasions, I forced myself to stay away. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in trying to be helpful that I forget to help myself...lol...Anyway, I'll be peeking in periodically throughout the day. I still have things I need to do here at home. In the meantime, you take care and have a safe & pleasant day, my friend...

    So I've tried passbook a few more times this last week. Mixed success of course. The douchieness continues just to a different extent now. I've figured out how to make it look natural to use my iPhone now, now I feel like a ****** when it doesn't work. Haha nothing is more embarrassing than pulling your phone out all slick like and it not working. The people behind you just stare as you hold the line up to dog your keyring out of your pocket. My wife is seriously kill me if I try to use it again in her company, haha.

    I have never had a problem whipping out my smartphone to display a rewards card at a retailer, especially in Orlando. I mean, it is so common. The few people who did stare was like, "Oh that's neat. What is the name of that app?" I'd tell them, they'd thank me and that's it.
