    Google just bought me a 6 pack of tallboys at seven eleven. All I did was touch my phone to a paypass scanner. It was beautiful.....I almost cried. I fully expected the people behind the counter to be surprised, unfortunately they weren't impressed. Obviously something was wrong with them ;-)

    Awesome.

    I wouldn't be totally surprised if someone working at a 7/11 showed a lack of enthusiasm for their job

    $3.19 is what I have left after buying my cerveza with Google's money. You'll need more than that for a 30 pack. Besides, I'll probably buy a 40oz with it :-p

    I also used my Google bucks to buy some brew. Great minds think alike.

    I'm lame and bought milk twice with my Google money. I squandered it. Damn cinnamon toast crunch.

    Well said brainless, cinnamon toast crunch is epic. It made me the man I am today. How much of a man is debatable ;-)

    So far, every time I've used Google Wallet I've been the first to use it at that particular establishment. A few convenience stores, gas stations, target, rite aid, and the liquor store.

    Only the younger clerks are really impressed, or ask questions. The one guy at 7-11 asked me to buy something again just so he could watch me use it, haha.

    Google Wallet insinuates to others that I'm cooler than I actually am. Thanks Google ;-)

    You get $10 when you activate the Google Prepaid card for the first time in Google Wallet.

    In a sense yes, but check this out Google Wallet - mobile app payments

    I have not had problems with it being down. Since they updated the apk I have reloaded my card and purchased something nearly everyday. I don't have a citi MasterCard so I just top off the google card.

    I've been reading about this, it seems interesting and tech chique, but I don't see how it offers any advantage over using plastic, perhaps there's something I'm missing?

    Its the coolness factor. Just tap and go.

    Part of it is the coolness factor, but it is also a little faster. I find it easier to use my phone than have to pull my wallet out and mess with my credit cards. The transaction seems a little faster too in my experience. Right now this is all minor, but I look forward to a day that I can leave my wallet at home.
