Weekend poll: Do you make NFC payments?

NFC payments have seen a slow but steady rise here in the US in the past few years. While far from achieving global penetration, systems like Android Pay and Apple Pay have actually become pretty commonplace in many large retail chains and even some small businesses via checkout services like Square in America. I'd say I'm using Android Pay, personally, about half the time I'm interacting with a card terminal these days.

But I know it's not like that for everybody, and that other systems like Samsung Pay, or some specific to certain banks in some countries, do exist. So I'm curious if you use NFC (and/or MST) and, specifically, which system you use.

[Deal Alert] Choetech and Tronsmart both have two packs of USB Type-A to Type-C cables on sale for $7.50 or less ($5-7 off)

If you've bought a new Android device in the past six months, chances are pretty good that it charges via USB Type-C. There are some nice advantages to the new charging standard (that I wish was more standardized) but there is also one fairly large disadvantage. USB Type-C cords cost a lot more than their MicroUSB brethren.

That is, if you pay the full price for them. If you pick them up on sale, prices are a bit more tolerable. Today I've got three codes to share with you guys for three different two packs of USB Type-C to Type-A cables.
