Walgreens adopting mobile coupons at nearly 8,000 locations

Posted on November 29, 2011 by admin | No Comments

Starting on Black Friday, Walgreens started adding 2D, QR code-ish coupons to their mobile app for consumers to scan at more than 7,700 locations… sounds boring, right? Well it’s not. It means that a pretty big retailer is adopting the technology which has been a little slow to pick up in these great United States we call home. So this is a small step in the right direction towards a time when we can use our phones for pretty much everything we normally need to print something out for (coupons, credit cards, transit, vending machines, etc). There are spotty uses for this kind of stuff right now, but it needs more mass adoption.
