Busy Mom Tips – Pay Easier with Softcard by Verizon

verizon softcard

As a busy mom I am often an running between things. From my own busy schedule to juggling everything with our children from school to after school activities. Our shopping trips are often quick and we always seem to be rushing once we get to the cashier. Plus lets face it shopping with a toddler is rough! Especially if we’ve passed nap time.

With a toddler and little ones the easiest thing I can often do is pay easier. I often use apps on my phone to purchase coffee but now I can pay right with my phone! The Softcard™ is making paying easier for busy moms like me because Softcard is a free* app that lets you pay with a tap of your phone, save with special offers, and store loyalty, membership and rewards cards. Which means more room in my wallet and less chaos!

What I like about the Softcard is that you can now also store loyalty cards, along with coupons and other special offers in the Softcard app. New loyalty cards are being added from stores like CVS, IKEA, Barnes & Noble, GameStop and Staples so you can continue to find all your favorite stores!

    I’ve never heard of this! It would be so convenient to pay with my phone, I need to try this.

  2. Christie on September 29, 2014 at 5:43 am

    This is a great feature for Verizon users! I would love to save more on groceries!

  3. Camesha on September 28, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    That’s really cool. I didn’t know this was an option. I don’t have Verizon though.

  4. Ashley on September 28, 2014 at 7:53 pm

    Technology is so neat! I had no idea this was even a possibility!

  5. Shannon Gosney on September 28, 2014 at 5:39 pm

    This sounds like a great product. The only thing I use my phone to pay with is Starbucks. It’s great to know this exists.

  6. Lori T. on September 28, 2014 at 5:09 pm

    I have never paid on the go, but this looks like something worth looking into. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Krystal on September 28, 2014 at 5:03 pm

    i would love having it all in one place! I hate having to remember cards and coupons!

  8. Liz Mays on September 28, 2014 at 4:10 pm

    I haven’t done it yet, but I sure like the concept. Carrying the physical card means carrying a wallet!

  9. Marina MommySnippets on September 28, 2014 at 9:35 am

    What a great idea! Working moms dream.

  10. Cyndi @ MrsWrightWrites on September 28, 2014 at 9:33 am

    I’m ashamed to admit how much time I’ve spent digging for cards at the register. This would be great!

  11. Angela S on September 28, 2014 at 6:54 am

    I have never used my phone to pay, but this certainly has me thinking about it.

  12. Emily on September 27, 2014 at 9:36 pm

    Perfect for busy moms! I need to look more into this!

  13. Rosey on September 27, 2014 at 8:21 pm

    This sounds great. We’re about to do some Toys R Us shopping for two birthdays coming up, so the savings there would be awesome.

  14. Carly Anderson on September 27, 2014 at 5:12 pm

    Softcard is such a great idea! I would love to stop having to remember to bring my store cards with me, or remember which phone number they are under.

  15. Shell on September 27, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    What a helpful app! I hate looking for all those loyalty cards.

  16. Beth@FrugalFroggie on September 27, 2014 at 8:25 am

    Sounds like an easy option to pay for things. As I don’t have a smart phone, it wouldn’t work for me but I could see how it would be handy/

  17. Stacie on September 27, 2014 at 5:50 am

    I just had a convo with someone about this! It sounds so convenient!

  18. April @ Everyday Fitness and Nutrition on September 27, 2014 at 3:13 am

    This would definitely be so convenient! I rarely carry cash and have to search through my wallet to find my debit card. The less stuff to carry, the better!

  19. Veronica on September 26, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    How convenient! I still pay the old fashion way. I will have to check this out

  20. Theresa on September 26, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    I haven’t used mine to pay, but I do utilize the coupon apps! They save a ton of money. This would certainly save a ton of time!

  21. Dawn on September 26, 2014 at 5:05 pm

    I just downloaded Softcard! I’m all about coupons and loyalty cards, so this is the Holy Grail for me.

  22. Mickey on September 26, 2014 at 4:21 pm

    I need this. My husband always forgets(?) to give me my card back, so it would be great to have this. I always have my phone, so I wouldn’t be stuck without a way to pay for things.

  23. Pam on September 26, 2014 at 3:35 pm

    This sounds so convenient! I haven’t used my phone to pay on the go, but I would definitely be willing to.

  24. Chrystal @ YUM eating on September 26, 2014 at 1:55 pm

    I have Verizon, but I have Apple iPhone. Last I checked this was only ready in the Google market.

  25. Robin (Masshole Mommy) on September 26, 2014 at 11:43 am

    I have never used my phone to pay, but might start now that I know about this.

  26. Sarah L on September 25, 2014 at 10:20 pm

    I don’t have a smartphone so I can’t use these kinds of apps.

  27. Michele P on September 23, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    looks good, I have Verizon wireless and will have to check out the app, it might make things easier for me plus I love the offers.

  28. Noelle (@singerinkitchen) on September 22, 2014 at 11:38 am

    What a relief to get something that is just perfect for busy moms!
