Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

The loyalty cards on customer's key chains may be going out of fashion making way for the loyalty apps. There is a new one that has hit Atlanta called Front Flip.

Front Flip is easy to use, can save customers money and earn rewards. Customers just need to scan the QR code or download the app to a smart device. The app then lets customers to scratch off a gift offer for each visit.

Deals and gifts vary depending on the place visited. Mat Tainow, the owner of Park Bar, tells FOX 5 that their top prize is an hour open bar for 20 people. Their other prizes include free desserts and appetizers.

Front Flip allows businesses like the Park Bar to connect with its customers in new ways.

"I would say any way that I can engage my customers, is a positive," said Tainow.

Front Flip is growing in Atlanta and is available at more than 50 businesses. Each business offers gifts and discounts.

Front Flip bills itself as the next-generation loyalty program  that is not based on points, punch cards or check-ins. Business like the Park Bar can use the service to help their business grow.

"Now, I can see how often your come in, so I can reward you for coming in. I can track, [that] this person came in six times this week. 'Thanks for coming in. Here's a free appetizer.' But I can also see how you haven't come in 30 days, 'I am going to give your prize to draw you back in,'" said Tainow.

Front Flip is available for free on Apple and Android devices. For more information or to download the app go to frontflip.com.
