Fiserv, a provider of financial technology solutions, is launching a mobile application for its UChoose Rewards debit and credit card rewards programme (view press release). The new app will allow UChoose Rewards users to check and redeem their rewards points and scan UPC codes on merchandise in-store to determine if an item is available through the rewards programme and how many points are required to purchase it. The UChoose Rewards programme allows banks to choose from merchant-funded, issuer-funded or blended rewards programmes, which are designed to incentivize card usage of debit and credit cards.
The new mobile app is available on Google Android devices, as well as the iPad and iPhone. The app includes an in-store pick-up option that allows UChoose users to complete their rewards redemptions at Best Buy stores and take their merchandise home on the same day. If an item is sold out at a particular store, the app will also find the nearest location where it is available.
Fiserv has also launched a UChoose Rewards participant website, which aims to give users enhanced security search functionality to make redeeming points easier.
