Hawaii firm launches first QR code-based debit card

Keauhou, Hawai`i, 08-06-2012 – Local hi-tech firm CheckSavvy, Inc. introduced the Aloha One Card, the first known QR code-based debit card as part of their mobile security platform at TechConKona this past Thursday.


It’s the first of its kind,” claims Alan Rudo, Founder and CEO of the Hawaii-based hi-tech company. Rudo demoed the card in combination with their CheckSavvy Alerts App for providing cardholders payment alerts over the smart phone.


We’re not aware of anyone else doing mobile security like this,” stated Rudo.


The Aloha One Card features a QR code that prompts a smart phone call to verify purchases. “This allows merchants to accept payment cards anywhere using only a smart phone,” Rudo said. “All transactions are verified so merchants should receive the lowest payment tier and save serious money.”


Rudo further demonstrated the CheckSavvy Alerts mobile App for iPhone, iPad and Android devices due out this Fall. The app features payment security and mobile discounts on local entertainment, activities, dining, shopping and events. “It’s not only about security, it’s about fun & entertainment too,” said Rudo. He went on to explain, “We’re only accepting beta users but we are shooting for it go public before the Holiday season.”


CheckSavvy, Inc. is a Hawaii-based hi-tech firm offering mobile payment security and mobile discounts for cardholders and merchants.
