It's so funny to think back 10 years ago. To a time when a cell phone was just that, a phone. Maybe there were a few that took pictures and you could play a few games on. And even fewer that accessed your e-mail. Today, it's just the opposite. Finding a phone that isn't "smart" is nearly impossible! So, why not fully embrace the freedom and "intelligence" of this new technology and allow it to further alleviate your need for a shopping essential - your credit/debit card. That's right, you read that correctly. With the Isis Wallet app, you can leave your favorite credit/debit card at home and shop with only your smartphone!

How do I get started?
To use the Isis Wallet you need two things: A smartphone with NFC (Near Field
Communication) technology and an enhanced SIM card designed to store and
protect your payment information. Then, you simply download and install the
Isis Wallet app from the app store.
What cards can I add to make a payment?
There are two options to pay for purchases. Add a participating credit card from
Wells Fargo, American Express or Chase and you’ll enjoy the same benefits and
protections you would get with your physical card. Or you can sign up for an
American Express Serve prepaid card that you can fund from any bank account.
How do I use it?
Paying with your phone is easy. Just open the app, enter you pin and then hold
the back of your phone over the contactless symbol at checkout.
Where can I use it?
You can use the Isis Wallet anywhere that contactless payments are accepted,
which is literally hundreds of thousands of locations across the country, including
McDonald’s, Jamba Juice, Macy’s, Toys’R’Us, Coca-Cola vending machines, etc.

My experienceDownloading the Isis Wallet app was really quick and easy! Then, I just visited my local provider store and they gave me an upgraded SIM card. I opened the app and added my personal debit card from my bank's mobile site and then visited the Where to Pay section on the app and found some local merchants that accepted it. There were close to 50 locations in a 5 mile radius, including Walgreens, Jamba Juice and BP! Awesome!
I admit, I was a little skeptical about using it the first time. I didn't know if it was going to work, or take a while. I know I get impatient with the time it takes people to pay in the store, so I didn't want to be THAT person who was holding up the line trying to use this new technology. I located a local Walgreens and decided to try it out there. It was so easy to check out! You just open the app, put in your secret pin, select the card and wave the back of your phone in front of the "sensor". Then it asks you to confirm and that's it!

Isis Wallet also has one more fun feature, loyalty cards and offers from participating merchants! You can earn/receive offers such as $2 off a Jamba Juice smoothie when using the app to pay. What a great perk on top of the already exciting ease of use and convenience of this app!
Overall, I really like the Isis Wallet app and hope every merchant starts accepting it! I think it takes the risk out of carrying around your debit/credit cards and potentially using them, or if your like me, avoids the need to "find" your card when you want to make a quick run out to the store. It's definitely one I recommend for anyone in your family. You can even get your teenager a American Express Prepaid Sverve card and hook it to up through this app!
