Google Wallet

Gee – what a shock.  Google wants to change the way we do something, again.  This time, however, it is to save us from our “George Costanza” wallet.

Google’s concept it to make your entire wallet digital – your payment, your receipts – even your coupons and loyalty offers.  Using your Citi® MasterCard® cards or the Google Prepaid Card, pared with your smartphone, you will be able to pay at hundreds of thousands of merchants.

At launch, it will work with Sprint’s Nexus S 4G, with plans to to expand to other phones shortly after.  Here’s how it works.  You will look for the paypass symbol, tap your phone on the reader, and your phone will send payment along with loyalty information to the vendor.  That’s it!
