Unknown symbol

Does anyone know what this symbol is in my notification bar? I'm guessing it's from a 3rd party app. Please excuse my poor attempt to recreate it. :)

    Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! A better attempt would be a screenshot (less guess-work involved). On most devices, screenshots can be made by pressing the power and volume key at the same time for about a second or two. – Izzy Oct 1 '15 at 18:33
  • 1. Please post a screen capture with the icon. 2. Please post which device you are using, including OS. 3. Please consider that third-party apps also provide their own notification icons. The vague drawing above does not look like any of the current Lollipop system icons. More info, please. – paulmz Oct 1 '15 at 18:53
  • The next time it shows up execute the command adb shell dumpsys notification and provide us the output afterwards. – Firelord Oct 1 '15 at 20:28
  • If you're using an Xperia phone please hold power key for 2 seconds and tap on Take screenshot. Please go through all the apps in app manager and try to unmark Show notifications. – MANI Oct 2 '15 at 3:33
  • @Firelord It would be very helpful to say where and how can the OP execute this command. – Άνδρας Oct 2 '15 at 8:25

It is! To be exact, it's Beaming Service for Samsung which works with this app, Beep'nGo (made by the same folks, Mobeam).

So you can use loyalty cards from shops (e.g. Starbucks). Quite a handy app if you ever wanted it and less crap to have in your wallet...
