Simply ask the attendant to enter his/her merchant PIN on your smartphone, and once they have done this, you will get a confirmation notice on your screen. The attendant will most likely want to make a note of the reference number that appears on your screen, so you should allow them to do so. If you accidentally move past this, then you should access the redemption confirmation reference by going to ‘Savings’ and then ‘Redemption History.’ The attendant will then prepare your bill with the discount applied. The merchant will receive a receipt of the redemption via email, and this will contain the same reference number for security purposes.
