Weekend poll: How often do you use contactless payments?

Most of us probably have money on the mind, given tax day is just around the corner. As we're all going through records and transaction lists for the last year, I'm curious about how you choose to make payments. NFC's effectively universal availability gives people in 27 countries access to Google Pay, and Samsung phones have that sweet MST — just two names among a longer list of options. So, how often do you use contactless payments?

CVS now accepts Google Pay and other NFC payments

In the early days of NFC payments, nearly every store with the proper terminals supported Google Wallet and other contactless systems. However, many retailers later shut off support for NFC, insisting customers use alternative platforms (like 'CurrentC') or apps they made themselves (like Walmart Pay).

Google: Unsupported Cards Already In Your Google Wallet Can Come To Android Pay, But Only For A Limited Time

Because there's been such tremendous confusion about what cards Android Pay does and does not support, we decided to reach out to Google for some clarification. Basically, we were wondering if cards you have in Google Wallet with tap-and-pay that are not supported in Android Pay will still work once Android Pay arrives. The answer is: yes. But, there are caveats. Let's break this down as a Q&A.

  • If I have cards in my Google Wallet that aren't on the supported card list for Android Pay, can I keep using tap-and-pay for those cards on Android Pay? Yes.

To do this, you will need to open Android Pay and add these cards, then accept the Bancorp virtual card agreement.

[Rumor: Fries With That] Internal Notice At McDonald's Claims Android Pay Is Launching August 26th, So Maybe It Is

Android Pay was announced at Google I/O around 3 months ago, and Google has since said we can expect the platform to launch here in the US sometime "later this year." It appears "later" could now be "like, next week," if this notice to employees at a McDonald's location is to be believed.

The August 21st launch for Samsung Pay is wrong, but it's the launch date for the devices (Note and S6 Edge+) - which seems like an honest mistake.
