    How does that differ from a debit card then?

    With Google prepaid card, you had to take your money and give it to Google before you could spend it. Now you keep your money until you spend it.

    I haven't used it since the latest update, but it is pretty excellent. I still have some of the $10 left that they gave us for trying it out. Other people definitely look confused when you're standing in line at McDonald's, then put your phone on the credit card machine but don't actually do anything.

    I tried Mine @ Meijer today. Inside the store, First machine asked me to enter my pin (into google wallet) then didnt work, even though I selected credit. Then I went Outside to the garden center for another purchase. The Google Wallet symbol lit up, then did nothing. Message popped up and said ask cashier if transaction went through or not.... Tried again, and nothing would happen. Not sure if it was a Bandwidth issue or not... I didn't seem to have a good 3g signal, and even in the store, it went away a couple times.

    one problem is that it is still using a virtual master card when charging then Google will charge your credit card. my reward card gives me double miles for gas, restaurant and grocery store purchases. If Google is the one charging my actual credit card while the merchant is changing the virtual Mastercard, I'll lose all the extra miles I'm supposed to get.

    It is. But I find it quicker than taking out my wallet, swiping my card, putting card back, pressing credit or debit (if it asks, most default to debit), and entering pin.

    A minor convenience really, certainly not the end all be all to anything.

    No, not at all.

    First, with the prepaid card I have to take $100 out of my account and put it on that card (giving it to Google). They are up $100 and I am down $100.. When I spend $5 for a Big Gulp they are up $95 and I am down $95, etc., etc.

    Second, if my prepaid card is down to $5 and I wanted to spend $6, tough luck.

    Third I refill my debit card with automatic deposit. :-P

    I think you missed klau25's point. It's not about who us actually charged in the end, he knows it will be charged to his account. His point is who does his credit card company think charged that amount.

    Obviously Google is not a restaurant, grocery store, or gas station. If the charge is applied to his credit card from Google he could potentially lose those rewards of double miles.

    I guess the answer is no one knows until you get your statement.

    Statements show up with a bill from Google.

    Decide how you use it from there.

    I really like Google Wallet when it works. I'm all about carrying the least amount of crap possible at all times. Sadly as much as I hate Apple, I really don't think the Paypass type transactions will take off unless the Iphone jumps on the bandwagon.

    Yep, just think of what you will accomplish in life with that savings of 7 and a half seconds. We will watch for your Nobel prize announcement in the coming years.
