This is very cool:
A new company called Coin has introduced an electronic credit card that stores all of your credit cards within it. Or let me put it another way: it’s a credit card sized device that acts as a credit card. You choose which card you want it to be when you swipe it, then you swipe and pay for whatever you want. That’s it.
If you’re a dork like me, you may have 7 cards in your wallet right now. I do. Whatever – don’t judge me.
This will take care of that problem.
The card also comes with an app so you can disable it if it’s lost.
This is not that mythical electronic card that chooses the best card to optimize points (and at this point, all frequent flyer programs kinda suck, don’t they? Isn’t that what we’ve decided this week?)
The card costs $50 (plus $5 shipping) and will be sent out next summer, at which point I will have forgotten that I paid for it.
