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 ;-)
sent from my Galaxy Nexus....probably while pooping
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?
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.
