Facebook tests in-store QR code rewards

Social media giant Facebook is testing a Rewards feature that lets users scan a personalised QR code to get discounts or bonuses when they make an in-store purchase. “Instead of the offer having a code to scan, Rewards assigns the user a single personal QR code they can scan everywhere,” TechCrunch reports. “People could potentially scan their code every time they come to a shop, like building up stamps for a free sandwich on a loyalty program card.”
