How long did your’s take?Garrett Barker – 2013-11-25 20:40:45-0500So jealous hopefully mine came in today as wellKeith I Myers – 2013-11-25 20:41:35-05004 days (including the weekend)Master Decker – 2013-11-25 20:48:06-0500Mine shipped same day as your +Keith I Myers Jason Adams – 2013-11-25 21:24:26-0500This has been a long time coming. Why do I need the card? I thought the idea was just use your phone. Isn’t this now just the same as Only Coin?Garrett Barker – 2013-11-25 21:28:21-0500The card looks cool but I agree I’ll use me phone app, unless they have exclusive reward programs for using the cardShauna Mork – 2013-11-25 21:38:55-0500How do I request one of are they sent automatically Jason Adams – 2013-11-25 21:43:04-0500+Shauna Mork I just got an email today with the request. It came from Google WalletJeremy Ellwood – 2013-11-25 21:43:08-0500For those wondering “WHy don’t I just use my phone?” – Umm…. because a lot of places can’t accept payments that way. Seems pretty straight forward to me.Mark Fournier – 2013-11-25 21:49:09-0500+Shauna Mork log into Google wallet through standard web browser. On the lefthand side, select “wallet card and app” – from there you can order. And yeah +Jeremy Ellwood this will definitely help with the places that don’t have contactless payment. Jason Adams – 2013-11-25 21:55:33-0500So with the card how do I select which CC in my wallet I wish to use? Jason Adams – 2013-11-25 22:17:48-0500+Kris Schnell seems like too much work. I’m liking Only Coin with the ability to change the CC right on the card itself. Timothy Welles – 2013-11-26 11:54:35-0500sweetMeshia Francis – 2013-11-26 12:03:14-0500I was going to order one too but I’d prefer if I could just use my phone at any PayPass locationMark Fournier – 2013-11-26 12:05:05-0500+Meshia Francis it’s worked for me so far that way! Long as they take MasterCard, seems most places don’t even know that they can accept contactless via wallet. I just try everywhere.Meshia Francis – 2013-11-26 12:09:30-0500 – Updated: 2013-11-26 12:10:26-0500Unfortunately for me +Mark Fournier, my phone is the unlocked HTC One from t-mobile on their uncarrier plan so it doesn’t fall into the category of phones that can be used at a contactless or PayPass locationMark Fournier – 2013-11-26 12:41:26-0500That’s weird, I’m on the (same?) $30 tmo plan with a Nexus 5, previously Nexus 4; works great 🙁 Don’t know what the difference might be between us!! But I love it at places like Wegmans, 7-11, various area gas stations, etc. Where have you tried that it did/n’t work +Meshia Francis ? Maybe we will find similarities there? I think it should still work, but I’ll admit I’ve never really questioned it since I’ve not had many problems. Meshia Francis – 2013-11-26 12:44:00-0500+Mark Fournier I tried it at a local Hess gas station that had the PayPass logoKeith I Myers – 2013-11-26 13:43:38-0500+Meshia Francis – That Hess station’s NFC readers are just busted. It wont work for me either. Try at the CVS next to itMeshia Francis – 2013-11-26 13:49:37-0500Thanks Keith I thought it was just me I’m going to try at a CVS thenMaster Decker – 2013-11-26 14:41:36-0500+Jeremy Ellwood WHY must you always think for others?  LOL.  They’d figure it out EVENTUALLYChris Harrington – 2013-11-29 17:26:19-0500I still don’t see the point. It’s just a glorified debit card. The info I got says that it works different than the app on my phone. +Keith I Myers +Meshia FrancisKeith I Myers – 2013-11-29 17:29:34-0500+Chris Harrington – You are correct, it is not the same as Google Wallet on your phone. It is a pre-paid debit card. It is really only useful if you deposit funds or recieve occasional payments via Google checkout (as I sometimes do)Meshia Francis – 2013-11-29 18:04:57-0500 – Updated: 2013-11-29 18:05:16-0500Exactly +Chris Harrington. But for people who are on AT&T or t-mobile ‘ s network it’s an alternative to Google’s contactless payment which is banned by both providers Chris Harrington – 2013-11-29 20:24:21-0500Yup, to need a little Boost in your life
