Jossle a new startup recognizes the college student’s yearning for free stuff and easy cash. Jossle provides college students with free apparel such as t-shirts with an opportunity to earn rewards and cash.
When a college student signs up they receive a t-shirt through their campus rep. On the sleeve of the shirt, is a QR code. Two things happen when this QR code is scanned; a sales promotion is received. (10% off next purchase, free latte, redirection to a website etc.) and the Jossler wearing the shirt receives revenue per each scan.
The companies advertising with Jossle are primarily those companies surrounding the campuses, along with others that target college students.

Maricela Final’s QR Code idea is a quick and efficient time saver for credit union member’s and staff. Members point their smart phone at the QR code imprinted on the back of the plastic credit union issued ATM card, Debit Card, Pre-Paid card, Gift, and Visa/MasterCard credit card. The QR (Quick Response) codes on the back side of plastic cards will be embedded with the card information typically used when calling the 800 number to verify information pertaining to the card, such as balance inquiries, pending transactions, last 10 transactions on account, promotions, credit union rates, branch locations or nearby ATM’s, etc..
By offering a QR code on the back of all credit union issued cards, members can access their account information in seconds, without having to enter a member number or 16 digit card number. Additionally, a four digit pin number will be requested when scanning the QR code in order to access secured personal information.
