NAME Wondermall

WHAT More than 100 brand-name stores in one app.

COMPATIBLE WITH iPad with iOS 8 or later.

HOW MUCH Free

WHAT’S GOOD Here’s a great way to eliminate the numerous individual store apps on your iPad, while earning points that can be redeemed for purchases. Wondermall contains more than 100 stores including Macy’s, J.C. Penney, T.J. Maxx, Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Old Navy, Ralph Lauren and Saks Fifth Avenue. When you sign up for Wondermall and allow notifications, you get 100 WonderPoints that can be redeemed to pay for purchases in any store, no matter where you earned them (100 points equals $1). You receive a point for each dollar you spend. Some stores also add multipliers on points. The more WonderPoints you earn over your history, the higher your “status.” Entry-level status is 5 percent, which means you also earn 5 percent additional WonderPoints for every dollar spent. You select at least five stores to follow to begin. You can just browse stores; select trending, new arrival or sale items, or refine searches for specific items by color, brand, size, price and sale price. There is easy access to each store’s return and exchange policies, size chart, store locator, order tracking and customer service. Don’t forget the coupons section, where you can tap a coupon to have it directly applied to a purchase.

WHAT’S NOT Unlike other point systems, you cannot combine WonderPoints with a credit card to make a purchase. Before you can purchase an item with WonderPoints, you must accumulate enough points to cover the entire purchase price.

BOTTOM LINE This virtual mall is easy, convenient and fun.
