Purchase Protection

Conventional credit card purchases (debit card? are you nuts!?) bring with them built in benefits like rebate points and warranty extensions. Fraud protection offered by credit cards is also unmatched. Perhaps if this venture offered something much better than these things, it might be worth considering.

Cash is much less of a hassle here.

To be fair to you, my opposition to this technology is driven more by it being linked to a debit card more than anything else. I've had too many problems with debit card fraud for me to even consider opening up another direct path from the outside world into my bank account.

For such purchases, if I do not have cash, I use credit. I never use my debit card for anything other than getting cash from an ATM.

Banks have text messaging options and you can be sent a text for every purchase, deposit or withdraw. You can also set amounts on them and only be notified if it is so much and so on.

Is does/will. Certain merchants will give "offers". You then use bring up the offer on the ISIS app and pay and you will obtain use of the "offer". it might be something like 2 for 1 or a discount. That is what ISIS is doing that Google Wallet does not (its also different from Google Offers in that it's an all in one product).

swipe your credit card, and sign. You want to go to the gym with a quarter, nickel and 3 pennies in you shorts pocket?

Or dip your phone. At 7-11 that's it, at Duane-reade (wallgreens) you have to hit the credit button and accept the amount(stupid)
