The use of contactless payments (or NFC Technology) in the United States is still in its infancy. Most people are familiar with this form of payment from using Apple Pay or Android Pay. We’re still at the point where people pull out their phone or use a watch to pay at the checkout and still have a look of amazement about this magical ability to pay with just a device.
What if I told you that it’s not necessary to fumble around with your phone or supinate your wrist to tap a watch to a reader in order to use contactless payments?
Banks are adding contactless technology to cards and many stores have contactless enabled card readers. So what are you waiting for? Continue reading “You Don’t Know What You’re Missing Out On If You Don’t Use Contactless Payments”
On our first several trips to London, we purchased a single trip or a return (round-trip) ticket every time we rode on the London Underground (or tube). This paper ticket was good for a ride to point A to point B (and back). It wasn’t until 2013 when we decided it would be worthwhile to purchase Oyster cards. While you need to pay a £5 deposit for an Oyster card, these cards can be tapped at the turnstile to enter and exit the London Underground and for travel on bus, tram, DLR, the Emirates Airline, London Overground and National Rail services in London.
Just as we were so proud of ourselves for adapting to the new technology, that tech started to become extinct. By the time our next trip came around, many passengers were no longer using Oyster cards and instead were either using contactless credit cards or a mobile wallet.

Visiting a Disney theme park is expensive. There aren’t many discounts available so you want to try to maximize the amount of points you get back on the money you’re going to be spending anyway. I was at Disneyland yesterday and was reminded of an easy way to get extra points. I’m really mad at myself that I didn’t think of it right away.
