If you haven’t heard of Moola before, then you’re in for a treat.
Moola is the app that gives you exclusive access to deals and bonuses on gift cards from over 200 local and national Canadian brands. You can use these gift cards for yourself or send them to others with just a click.
There’s no going to the store, no losing your gift cards, and no forgetting how much is on your card.
Not convinced? Check out these 5 reasons why you need to download Moola right now.
1. Moola can save you money
Think of these gift cards as prepaid cards to a specific store. It’s cash, just digital and on your phone. You were going to spend $200 at American Eagle anyway, so why not buy a $200 gift card through Moola first and get yourself an extra $20 to spend as a bonus. The more money you spend, the more money you save.
Using Moola to budget your money
You can also use Moola to help you budget your money, saving you more money in the long run. It’s called gift card budgeting, and it’s the next big thing in the budgeting world.
Here’s a quick breakdown of how to practice gift card budgeting:
- Determine how much you want to spend and save each month
- Divide your spending into different categories
- Buy a gift card in each category for the amount you want to spend
- Collect deals and bonuses along the way
- Track your balance as you go and watch your savings add up
You can also use gift cards to help your kids learn how to budget by giving them gift cards instead of cash. It’s a great way to give them control over their finances while still monitoring how much they’re spending.
2. Moola can save you time
Buying physical gift cards can take up a lot of time from traveling to the store to waiting in long lines to putting it in the mail and hoping it gets to where it needs to go.
Don’t waste your time going to the store and standing in line. Just open your Moola app, find the brand you’d like, tap, buy. Done. All from your phone.
How to buy gift cards with Moola
- Download Moola: The first step to getting deals is downloading the app. You can do this for free in the App Store or Google Play store.
- Find a deal you like: Choose from over 200 Canadian retailers with deals and bonuses up to 10% off.
- Pay using one of our accepted payment methods: This includes Apple pay, Google Pay, and major credit card providers.
- Use your card in your Moola wallet on your phone: You’re now all ready to use your gift card. When it comes time to redeem your gift card, all you need to do is open up your Moola wallet and either present it to the cashier or copy the gift card code into the online shopping field!
All that before you even find your car keys. How’s that for saving time?
3. Moola can help you downsize your wallet
One cool thing about Moola is that it’s not just a marketplace, it’s also a digital wallet.
You can store all your cards in Moola—not just the cards you buy through the app. You can add in physical gift cards you have, rewards cards, loyalty cards, even your library card.
Check out these other cool features of the Moola wallet:
- Check your balance: Checking your gift card balance can be super frustrating. Simply open up your Moola app and use our “Check your Balance” feature to find out just how much you have left on that Milestones gift card.
- Find store locations: Maybe you really want to use your Ardene gift card, but you’re not sure where the closest store is. Tap on your gift card and quickly find the store locations closest to you. We’ll even open your maps app to give you directions.
- Customize your cards: Choose from tons of cute card designs and customize your wallet to make it beautiful and unique, just like you. My favorite is when I get to have a wallet full of Christmas-themed gift cards during the holidays—beginning in September of course.
4. Moola can help you find new deals
Moola is a smart digital wallet and it’s getting smarter every day.
Our newest feature helps make discovering new deals easier by showing you deals near you. Here’s how to get this feature:
- If you’re new to Moola, simply allow Moola to access your location when you first download the app. This will allow Moola to curate deals especially for you depending on your geographic location.
- If you’re already a Moola user, go to your device settings and find the Moola icon. Here you’ll be able to give Moola access to your location while you’re using the app.
Deals near you update as you move, so you can find the closest Moola deals to you no matter where you are in Canada. It’s a great way to discover new deals that are perfectly relevant to you.
5. Moola is better for the environment
300 million tonnes of plastic are produced each year and a lot of that ends up in our oceans, including plastic gift cards.
Eliminate these single-use plastics in your life by buying and sending gift cards digitally with Moola.
Plastic gift cards are bad for the environment because:
- They’re made with PVC, a harmful chemical that lingers in the environment for hundreds of years
- They’re almost impossible to recycle due to the material that’s used with them
- They’re meant to be used once and then discarded
Digital gift cards purchased on Moola are a much better solution. Not only will it save you money, but you can feel good about saving the planet too.
