    Anyone use their 950XL to scan their loyalty cards at places like pharmacies, groceries, yoga sign in? :)

    With the new Wallet 2.0 app, I can scan in a barcode really easily but the scanners at groceries can't seem to read them...

    I'm using Mobile-Pocket for this purpose. It works fine with the hand-held scanners at the convenience store, but you're right that it won't scan on the pass-over scanner at the grocery store. As the use of apps like this increase, perhaps the grocery folks will change their tech?

    The issue is most likely not with the app (unless it is misrepresenting the barcode type being displayed) but rather the scanners at your grocery store are probably not 2D type scanners.

    You really have to make sure the barcode on Wallet matches the real barcode on your card. It took me 3 attempt to replicate my Staples Reward card.

    It's the same type of barcode on the products and even on the loyalty card, it looks the same.

    What do you mean by this? you just scan it and it gets all the numbers properly no? It looks pretty similar.

    Not all the time, especially when the original bar code is kind of faded away. But yeah, like the other guy said, not all stores has scanner/reader that can read bar codes off of phone's screen.

    I'm noticing that some cards won't generate barcodes. Of 9 cards I have added so far, only 3 have barcodes. 2 of the supported and one custom.

    While submitting feedback about this, I learned that loyalty cards don't get saved in backup so don't throw them away after putting them in your phone!

    I haven't tried a grocery store yet, but Barnes & Noble works great. They said they had never seen that before and that it was pretty cool.... so apparently I am the only one at my Barnes & Noble to use it.

    Can't edit loyalty cards (to change the colour, etc.), no cloud backup, and sometimes it grabs only partly the barcode/card number. I've stopped plyaing with the app as it's not reliable at this stage.

    This is not a problem with Mobile-Pocket. If you create an account with them your info is stored in the cloud.

    I have not converted from the free app "Barcode Wallet" to the new Wallet 2.0 for loyalty cards yet. Barcode Wallet does securely store the data as it is integrated into the MS Wallet and also lets you backup to Onedrive - no separate vendor account required.
