    Especially at that price, I don't think I'd be too willing to give a bartender this card to hold on to before I close my tab (if I even remember to).

    Has to be either rechargeable or replaceable battery. People select no annual fee cards for a reason.

    You can get a plastic card for Google Wallet. I've never even set up tap to pay on my phone. I load up the account and swipe that card. Transactions post immediately and its easy to track what I've spent on my phone compared to the bank where some things take days to even register as a charge.

    I been hooked on Google wallet . one of my favorite feature of the card is when you swipe it you get a notification most of the time before the merchant prints the receipt. They go to have me the receipt and I show them my phone showing that I already have one. I love the reaction I get when I do that. Also use it to send money to friends (ie they at a store and see a deal I can send them the money and tell them to pick me some up and I'll get it from them later).

    I did order one of these a few months ago. I intend on doing a write up eventually, but for now, my issue with other options is that only very few places in my region are NFC capable. So that limits things.

    Very cool concept overall. Certainly would be even more viable if the price were to come down some. I think what was suggested above would be great, integration/partnership with a company like paypal that could really help to get it out there to consumers at a better overall price.

    Really looking forward to your review. Off Topic how you do like that Yoga 8? I almost purchased one and think they are incredible.

    It is my favorite all around Tablet. Powerful enough to do anything I want, with enough longevity to go anywhere I need.
