Debit cards, credit cards, gift cards, loyalty cards, membership cards… Augh! It’s reached the point where we have so many cards in our wallets and purses that we don’t have room for actual money or baby pictures. Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a way to have one card do the work of all those other cards? Hmmm. Funny that you should mention that.
The Coin Card is a nifty data storage device that functions like a credit card, but with a digital twist that cuts down on clutter. Using the mobile app, you can add, manage, and sync all your others cards so that the info is available on Coin when you want to make a purchase. Just press the button on Coin to shuffle through the stored data until you reach the card you want to use, and then swipe it just like a regular credit/debit card.
Also, with Coin, you don’t have to worry about accidentally leaving your card behind because it’s connected to your phone via Bluetooth. Move too far away from the card and it will send an alert message to let you know you forgot something.
The Coin Card will ship Summer 2014 for $100 but it can be pre-ordered now for just $50.
