I’m really digging the Ugo app and the surprise offers that pop up every once and a while!
How Ugo Works
The Ugo app is quite simple. Once you have downloaded the app, you simply upload gift cards or loyalty cards into your ‘wallet’. You can do this by scanning the barcode, or entering the barcode and taking pictures of the front and back with your phone’s camera.
Check out this video on how to upload a gift card to Ugo:

When it’s time to use your gift card or rewards card, simply open the app, click on the card and then scan the barcode as you would on the original card. It’s really that easy!
Here’s a quick video on how to collect loyalty points on Ugo:
If you’ve been following along, you will notice that one of my favourite ways to save money is buy using gift cards. Whether for travel, groceries, everyday items, I try to use gift cards I earned by completing offers or that I bought at a discount.
I typically buy my gift cards at grocery stores to get 4% cash back on my Scotia Infinite Visa, or I pick them up from My Giftcards Plus (part of Swagbucks), or when stores have promos for discount gift cards.
However, I absolutely love the UGO gift card promotions that come out! And, I’m super excited about this one, which gives new and existing users a $10 Amazon gift card.
If you haven’t downloaded the UGO app yet, you can get a $10 Amazon.ca gift card, when you load your first loyalty card. To unlock this bonus, simply enter promo code 19WAG when you sign up. That’s it!
If you’ve already downloaded the UGO app, then you can get a $10 Amazon.ca gift card when you purchase a gift card worth $25 or more through the egiftcards portal. The gift card will be added automatically, no code required!
