    Hi Edwin,

    QR codes are still cutting edge. I have been taking a course on Mobile marketing. Although QR codes are not new, they are really starting to take off.

    Actually I am really excited. I had to go out and buy myself a smart phone.

    I would like to create a coupon business based off of QR codes and SMS.

  5. I was looking into this not too long ago and it seemed like it would be complicated, but with your simple instructions it is not :) Not sure what I would do with it though, honestly. Stick it on a website?

  8. Hi, I want to create QRCodes that I can send to customers phones and then have them redeem them at a point of sale. How do I do this? This is different from having them take a picutre of a qrcode or using a url link for the code. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for the reply. Sure. What I want to do is generate qrcodes that represent coupons and then
    send them to customers phones. The customer can then have this qrcode scanned by a bar code reader at check out to receive the coupon discount. I know starbucks is doing something similar to this with their coffee cards:

    http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2010/03/30/starbucks-now-letting-you-pay-for-your-coffee-fix-via-iphone-in-1000-target-stores/

    See how the qrcode is scanned in this article. That’s what I want to do but as a coupon. Ok, thanks again.

  9. Hey Rob I think I understand you correctly, pretty much all you have to do is create the QR code with your discount/sales incentive then email it to your customers. You would then need a way to retreive this discount offer at the time of purchase… Hope this help is I understood it corrctly!

    Wow, this is really a great trick. How do you found such interesting tips and tricks.

    We can use QR Codes for hiding our information from unknown people. This is a kind of code words. We can use it for discussion at social network to get specific people know specific things.

    Great thing, I really like it.

  15. hi,
    I have been looking into making qr codes to promote my app development business. I found this article on how to make them more visually enticing. http://mashable.com/2011/04/18/qr-code-design-tips/
    the funny thing is the article tells you to do these things, but not actually how to do them. I have found dozens of websites that make a qr code for you in 2 seconds but I want to make mine visually arresting and to use my app logo in it to reinforce my brand. Can you help?

  18. Hi Edwin
    Thanx for the info. I would like to know if there was a way that I could make a QR code with a tolerance of 30%. As I understand the concept there are options to the tolerance that a QR code can have to be readable. In most cases the codes have 0% tolerance but can be made to have up to 30%. Do you know of a site where I could set the tolerance or alternatively do you have any more info no this concept?
    Thanx, Colette
