Push for Electronic Payments

I went in Chick-fil-A today while traveling and noticed they accept Apple Pay. Walgreens, McDonald’s, and Panera Bread are sites I visit regularly and now they accept Apple Pay. I try to use it everywhere it is available.

The point of this post is to say that we need to use this wherever it is available. We’ve got to get the balance to tip towards electronic payments, with their higher security levels, and away from sliding plastic cards through primitive readers.

Do your part. If you’ve not set up electronic payments on your phone (whatever kind) get it setup and start using it everywhere that it is accepted.

Apple Pay can be used at these sites. Samsung Pay here.

  1. Except banks are seeing increasing fraud through these payment methods. It’s fairly simple to get enough information about a person on the dark web to create fake accounts through Apple and Samsung which directly hit a bank account.

    1. Yep on the rewards if you provide no other information. Walgreens will still let you swipe your loyalty card with the transactions, but if you provide nothing other than Apple Pay, then they can’t connect you and the purchase.
