Amazon Wallet, an Android app that lets users store gift cards and loyalty cards on their mobile phone, is now available to download from Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. Amazon Wallet also ships with the online retail giant’s recently launched Fire phone.
“Use the Amazon Wallet app to simplify your shopping trips, and never lose another gift card or rewards membership number,” the retailer says. “Scan or type your gift cards, loyalty cards and membership cards to your Amazon Wallet to reduce the clutter in your leather wallet or purse.
“Wherever you are, the information you need is easily available as a barcode, QR code, text or image. For supported merchants, check the balance of your stored gift cards. Information saved in your Amazon Wallet is stored securely in the Amazon cloud.
“In addition, your Amazon Wallet cards can be viewed and edited at amazon.com/wallet, where you will also find the credit cards, bank accounts, and other payment methods saved in your Amazon account.”
