    All of these NFC payment operators are taking a cut. You don't think AT&T, Verizon and the other companies pushing softcard (used to be ISIS) are just doing it for fun and because they love their customers? I'm not an apple fanboy but I would much rather give them a cut of my transactions than my cell phone company.

    I guess I need to put a disclaimer on all of my posts when I am kidding around. My Apple in it for the money post was me kidding around. Every company is in it for the money. I know that. Hell we all know that.

    I would love to make a joke, but I don't want to derail the thread.

    Here in Phoenix we have BJ's Restaurants and Brewery, but thanks MM for clarify what BJ's really is.

    It'll be cool to see how this works out and if it takes off.

    Apple pay will be a big hit, the fact that you aren't giving the your credit card number to the store is huge. I can't wait until next year when I can upgrade my 5S

    I hope so, I get a bit tired handing over my credit card to the store clerk or when they ask for id. Hopefully with the Apple Pay, asking for a credit card and id will come to an end? I know they have to check your really the user, but sometimes it gets a bit annoying.

    With all of this Apple Pay talk, I really wanted to try it out and plus I have a Walgreen's right around the corner from me. I just went there and bought couple of candy bars to test out the new Apple Pay and it took me a couple of tries. First time I tapped my phone at the card reader, while I was finger scanning and I thought it was done and so I pulled away early and didn't read. You need to keep your phone on the card reader, until the full fingerprint scan is complete. I had my phone on vibrate, so it vibrated to let me know when my purchase was completed and a pop-up showed up as well and of coarse punch-in your pin number on the card reader. But the store clerk and couple of customers were impressed of the new technology. I like my new toy and I look forward to use it at future locations, where ever Apple Pay accepts it.

    I just tried it at McDonald's... Very easy payment but the cashier was clueless as to what I was doing. The manager walked over and confirmed that all went well.

    They deserve $15/hour dealing with this new fangled technology.
