    I have a Amazon credit card that gives double points when shopping at certain types of stores like restaurants. If I were to use Google wallet to charge the Amazon card at McDonald's, would they give me double points or would it think I bought something from Google and give me normal points?

    Has anyone checked this for any credit card benefits?

    It would think you bought something from Google. Essentially the way wallet works now is that it is tied to cloud Google card of which it charges to. Afterwards, Google charges the credit card you have activated in wallet the exact same amount as if you purchased through the play store. So unfortunately there would be no bonus.

    I could be wrong, but isn't it just a "wallet" that holds your credit card info? Doesn't the merchant bill your credit card directly?

    It use to work that way, but with limited cards. In order to try to attract more users who didn't have one of those cards, and open capability with any credit card, they serve as a quasi card launderer. You charge using it, merchant charges google, then google charges you the same amount.

    Wow, that's not optimal at all. I guess it works like PayPal then.

    How does Isis work?

    I think it works correctly for the cards that it fully supports like discover cards but i'm hoping they get more partners soon
