Have you ever received a gift card for a birthday or Christmas, only to misplace it before you can make your purchase? Or maybe you tuck it in a desk drawer, and forget about it, only to have it expire?

Well, stop digging through your wallet, and download the Swagg iPhone app (free). It is the latest iteration of mobile-device-as-credit card, and can save you a heap of trouble.

The app does require you to create a profile, and sign in and out, but it’s quick and free. To put the app to use, pull out your gift cards. Find the respective brand in the app, enter the gift-card number and the PIN. The app instantly retrieves all relevant information, including balance and expiration date.

If there’s a store you particularly like, and frequently shop at, you can add it to a list of stores for easy searching.

But the handiness of the Swagg app doesn’t stop there. It also clues you in to hundreds of discount and sales. So, not only can you enjoy spending your gift car, but you can combine it with additional coupons to get more bang for your buck.

And if friends or family are also signed up for Swagg, you can gift them a gift card, right through the app.
