Why do thousands of merchants put us through a bootcamp to join their loyalty program? Why do they make checkout an obstacle course?

It’s embarrassing. Time consuming. Intrusive. Cumbersome. Broken.


Because no one ever built a simple & secure way to validate our veteran status at checkout.

Until now.

Want to be recognized at select merchants simply by swiping your existing Visa card?
