    Yes barcodes on screens can be scanned by traditional barcode readers. Just get the entire barcode to fit the screen, with all of it showing, and present it to the cashier. (im assuming you have digital coupons you can't or won't print)

    Huh, I don't know, I would hope someone else does however. (complimentary bump)

    Or if you want a barcode scanner... Try RedLaser.

    I use the Walgreens app, which shows my courtesy card barcode. The cashier scanned it today when I was at the store.

    Different stores do have different scanners... Not too long ago, Petsmart failed to scan a barcode off my 925 screen and that is higher pixel density than a 520 screen. Screen protectors may cause an issue as well. Now that I think about it I had a matte, anti-glare sheet on the 925.
