How to Access Your Virtual Card on Your Phone
For those with smart phones, you can store more than one favourite offer to your phone. Some retailers may ask for additional ID to ensure you are a bonafide member of APOD. Any offers that have expired will automatically be removed from our website and your favourites.
A Membership Card on a Phone
Start by going to our website via a computer or laptop is easiest.
Find an in store offer you like that says 'To redeem this offer present your APOD Virtual ID card or printed voucher'.
Next: where the offer page asks you how would you like to redeem this offer, choose save offer to my dashboard. Save all the ones you like or might use to your dashboard. They will automatically come off if they expire so you never have to worry.
Next: click view all my saved offers. You will see all offers are saved as cards.
Next: on your smart phone, open a new browser and go to the APOD website at www.apod.com.au. Type in your username and password to login.
Next: click manage account to go to your Dashboard.
Next: click favourites and then click my virtual cards and follow the instructions to turn phone on its side. From there you should be able to swipe through all your cards. As you keep adding to them from your computer, when you go back to your phone and do the same thing, you will see it has added them to your phone.
Once you get the hang of it, we hope you find it very handy!
In 2014 we will be offering you a plastic version of this card for those of you who prefer to use that option to redeem offers.
