Welcome to the FAQ’s, or Frequently Asked Questions, for short.
1. What is Yoyo Go?
Throw that dog-eared stamp card in the bin, baby, we’re living in the future now!
In short, Yoyo Go is a loyalty app. In slightly-less-short, it’s the most convenient
way to earn loyalty and rewards every time you make a purchase at a participating merchant. You link your bank card in the app, and when you pay for something, you earn loyalty automatically and instantly. Redeem that loyalty for incredible rewards just as easily. You can download the Yoyo Go App from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store to get earning.
2. What’s the difference between Yoyo Go and Yoyo Wallet?
Both are extremely excellent apps powered by Yoyo, but they do different things.
Yoyo Wallet is a super smart and useful payment app that lets you pay, earn rewards and collect digital receipts with your mobile device.

3. Is Yoyo Go free to use?
Yes, Yoyo Go is free to download and use at participating Yoyo Go merchants.
4. What is card-linked loyalty?
Card-linked loyalty is the easiest way to collect loyalty rewards for your
To quote Mike from IT:
“When a bank card is linked to your Yoyo Go account, a process called tokenisation occurs, which means that when you then use that bank card to make a purchase at a Yoyo Go merchant, our platform recognises the card and automatically applies the loyalty.” (Mike, Department IT, 2020)
5. How do I earn?
Literally by doing exactly what you would be doing anyway – paying for your
purchases (unless you are engaged in a life of crime). Simply link your bank
cards or Apple/Google Pay cards through the Wallet Section of the Yoyo Go app
and then make a payment using your bank card. We’ll do the rest! (If you’d like a
step-by-step on how to link your card, see point 14!)
6. Where can I earn and redeem my loyalty?
You can earn loyalty across all participating retailers, but you can only redeem
loyalty at the retailer where that loyalty was earned.
7. Will card-linked loyalty work with Apple Pay/Google Pay?
You can link Apple Pay or Google Pay when you select a payment method. If you
have more than one card linked to Apple Pay, you will have to link each card
separately. If you would also like to earn when tapping those cards to pay, that
card will have to be linked separately. Samsung Pay is not supported.
8. Can I earn by paying with my smart watch?
You can only earn loyalty when paying with a bank card or Apple/Google Pay.
Wearables are not supported.
9. Will card-linked loyalty work with cash payments?
You can only earn loyalty when paying with a bank card or Apple/Google Pay
linked to your Yoyo Go account at a participating retailer.
10. Will card linked loyalty work in all stores?
Once a bank card has been linked to your Yoyo Go account, you will earn loyalty
at any Yoyo Go retailer you visit when you make a transaction with that card.

To redeem your voucher, just present the voucher QR code to the cashier
in-store and they will scan it using the Salt Terminal. This will automatically apply
the right monetary discount to the total basket value.
If you have any other items that you would like to purchase in the same
transaction, just tap your linked card onto the terminal to pay for the rest of your
Once a voucher has been redeemed, it will automatically disappear from your

items you’re purchasing, you lose the difference, so be sure to pop an extra
something in your basket to make sure you get your vouchers worth!

receive 1 point for every penny spent. We made it this way so that nobody has to
do any maths. A transaction of £4.99 would equal 499 loyalty points. You can
accrue these points until you have enough to exchange for a reward.
