    Default How to find local stores, restaurants, etc., that use ISIS Mobile Wallet?

    I just went to Verizon and got my NFC sim card for my GN 2 and I downloaded the ISIS mobile Wallet app. I haven't yet signed up, but was wondering how to find local stores and such where I can use it. I keep trying to google to find Locations near me and not finding anything yet. Can someone link me to a site that shows on a map or a list of places that use ISIS? I know it's new, but still would like to try it somewhere once I set it up. Thanks.

    Well after downloading the app I saw the locations where it's available near me. Then when I went to sign up and read about using an American Express Serve Card to link to my debit, I found out there's a $2.95 Fee everytime I use ISIS at a local Store. Why the heck would I do that, when I can swipe my debit card for free!! Hell no ISIS, now I see why people prefer Google Wallet. May have to try and root my phone to get that to work if I can. Never liked American Express anyways. Don't really want to root my phone, so will have to see. Will we still be able to root the phone after the 4.3 update? I would like to check that out if no problems with it and wait on the rooting until I'm sure if there are fees or not with Google Wallet at local retailers.

    So they want to charge people to make a payment, and it isn't as if the charge is a trivial amount, either. Wow, what a ripoff! No thanks!

    I think your mistaken, the $2.95 fee is for the purchase of the card but you can get it free online. What I am seeing is you get 20% back for every tap you do.

    yes, I saw this in another thread. The charge is for the purchase of the card. Sorry. If you signup online it's free.

    I just signed up with the Isis Wallet app and it has you make an account with Amex Serve. I did it all from my phone and it was free. Amex also gives you $50 for signing up. As soon as my registration was done there was $50 on my available balance, now I just need to find stores that allow Isis purchases.

    I'm using it just because vzw has blocked the nfc payment feature on Google wallet. The vending machines at my work use Isis and have a deal where every third tap is free up to $5.00. They are operated by Canteen.

    Yet another reason to install a custom ROM. You can get Google Wallet working quite easily if you do this.

    I just signed up yesterday and it was FREE.COM. I even got $50 credit.

    Now I have to find out how to use the money. I will probably just go to the AT&T store and pay part of my bill, they said they take ISIS, so that is always an option.

    The Isis wallet has been disappointing to me. Success with it has been below 25%. First the amount of places that the map says it works and where it actually does is hugely different. The grocery store I shop in was on the map but they don't even have machines capable of reading it. Home Depot registers but it then says I have to present the card to the cashier. Wallgreens and Mcdonalds both buzz but it doesn't complete the transaction. CVS works, I don't shop at CVS.

    I got my $25 free, and then used the physical card to drain the account of the money I had transfered to the card and am done with it. Didn't have this type of problems with google wallet and my Nexus 7.

    I've only recently signed up with ISIS and I'm having much better time using it. It helps that I live in Houston as big cities usually tend to have better and faster adoptions of emerging technologies. I've used it at McD's, CVS, Walgreens, Jamba Juice, Whataburger, and even the mall vending machines with no problems whatsoever. Haven't tried Home Depot yet but will at my earliest convenience. While ISIS's current deals aren't as nice as last year's, they're still pretty sweet: $25 sign up, $1 credit back with any $1 or over purchase up to $50 a month, daily free small smoothie or juice from Jamba Juice, and free soft drinks. I have to say, it's nice. It's too bad ISIS is having trouble finding traction in the marketplace. I'm sure that the having a terrorist group overseas with the same name isn't helping either (I bet the corporate heads are banging their heads on the wall over that one).
