How you use Moola digital wallet
- Check your balance: You hand over your gift card at the till and say, I’m not sure how much is on this, but let’s find out. Sound familiar? Moola lets you easily check the balance of any gift card you have directly through the merchant’s website. It’s a lot more reliable than hoping for the best every time you buy a latte.
- Find store locations: Maybe that acquaintance in your life got you a gift card to a store you’ve never been to before. No problem! With Moola, you can look up the store locations of every gift card you have, all in one place.
- Organize your wallet: Christmas is over, and you now have 7 Starbucks gift cards. What do you do? You enter them all into Moola. They stack on top of each other and give you the total balance all without having a wallet full of plastic.
- Use it for more than just gift cards: Like your library card, gym pass, student ID, rewards cards, and more. Anything with a barcode, you can easily put into Moola.
Moola mends the broken relationship you have with your wallet. It saves you time, energy, and endless amounts of frustration from not being able to find that one specific piece of black plastic in your wallet.
