Giveaway: Looped In

As a college student, I admittedly often go around campus only carrying my phone, my university id card, and my T pass. I'm a handbag kinda girl and all, but sometimes I travel as light as possible- even if it's the mile and half walk across campus. I frequently eat around campus using the dining points tied into my university id, but there are plenty of moments when I'm out by myself or with friends and spontaneously get a craving for non-dining hall food. However, most of the time I or someone one our entire group doesn't have cash or credit handy and we're forced to reconvene in the dining hall. 

Today, I'm so excited to announce a giveaway with looped in, a new mobile payment app that is certain to become any college student's new best friend. Use your credit/debit card to load money into your looped in account and the app allows you to make secure payments using a pin number (and never shares your financial information to third or fourth parties). The cashier simply asks for the phone number you registered your account with and the bill gets sent straight to your account for you to accept/deny. The app even uses your geographic location to show local restaurants or stores that accept looped in as payment and current deals these local stores are offering at the moment.

My favorite part though?
It makes splitting the bill and reimbursing friends so much easier. You can send/receive money to friends using looped in's private messages just by entering their phone number. I can't tell you how handy this is when you're splitting the bill with a large group of people- goodbye wasted time passing credit cards around the table and exchanging change! If your account happened to be low on money at the restaurant, you can simply reload your account afterwards and send your friend the money back ASAP. Your friends really will thank you, because let's face it, we're college students and we really could use that five dollars back like, now.

Still confused on how it works? Watch some how-to videos about the app here.
