You can I use it for anything and anywhere that supports the payment system

McDonalds is not the only place, its just a convenient place for testing for most people. They're everywhere and its a consistent system across the country

I love using Wallet because it causes jaw dropping expressions sometimes, but I just can't see how it really helps me. If I'm out and about, chances are I've got my wallet on me so that I have my drivers licence. So if I go into a store, I can whip out the card just as fast as my phone, and I know that will be accepted (or I hope lol). Does anybody really see a benefit to using it?

They actually swapped out the pay pass reader with a regular swipe one so I wouldn't be able to use it anyways, but still. Good thing about a vending machine one, no cashier giving you dirty looks if it doesn't go through

Same here. Never used the free $10 Google gave me.

Tried it a few times and it didn't work because the pay station wasn't actually set up for it correctly.

After that I. mostly forgot about it

I use it at Circle K all the time. I also use it when I go to our local theme park. I no longer have to take my wallet, I just take my phone.

I'll have to try it at your "local theme park" since the pass I get for my "local theme park" will work there. Thanks for the heads-up (and the news of the update). Now if I could just enter my pass in Wallet and get it to work...

Seriously, I'd use my Wallet more if it were available at more places. Until Isis comes out (still waiting, Verizon!), I don't think were going to see a lot of retailers jumping on the bandwagon. As usual, what Big Red wants, Big Red gets!

BTW Rxpert83, I never used either of the $10 credits I got (one for GNex, one for N7). Went online, told Google I wanted a refund, and they sent me two $10 prepaid cards. Sweet!

Think I should put those in my Google Wallet and complete the cycle?

I used up my $10 at the local Whole Foods. Purely for the expression on their face and the stammering, "did... did you just pay for that with your phone?"

If it were widely accepted, I'd ditch my wallet at home in a second. I don't like carrying stuff. As it is, though, there are only a couple places I can use it which severely limits its usefulness for me.

I've used it on occasion, but it's not reliable enough. The staff working the register usually isn't trained or patient enough, and if there are customers waiting, neither are they.

It's cool to use, but it got tripped up by the carriers and likely won't be a replacement for my plastic cards, any time soon. Shame, really, because I want to use it.

Thats not true. At least not for me in California. Here are the places that I use it.

Whole Foods
Walgreens
CVS
Peets coffee
Old Navy
Macys

Whole foods I use weekly, walgreens/CVS whenever I need stuff from the drug store and Peets for coffee/tea. Beyond that, I hardly ever have a need to use cash. The $40 I took out from the ATM has been in my physcial wallet for several weeks.

I use Gwallet pretty regularly... once a month or so. Funny that I couldn't download the apk from chrome due to a redirect loop... of course firefox worked...

From what I have noticed, there are several types of terminals. There is one in particular that is very bad. Old navy uses it and whole foods used to use it. They worked 50% of the time for me.

At peets, cvs, walgreens they have never failed for me. Those terminals look different. The area where you scan usually have a transparent blue plastic around the top of the terminal.

Lately, I noticed more and more whole foods have replaced their terminal with a slightly newer one that has a small round led at the top. Those seems to work every time now.

Sometimes the cashiers get confused. Some are too quick to end the transaction before you acknowledge the charge on the terminal. Sometimes the cashier doesn't know what kind of payment your google wallet is. For those folks I can usually tell from their perplex look and I would tell them "just use mastercard pay pass" and its fine once they do that. If I tell them google wallet, they get confused.

Yeah, I think it's probably just as well that my vending machines at work take cash only. I rarely carry cash and it means I don't constantly snack on expensive crap.
