As part of the Verizon Ambassadors SE Voices program, I was asked to check out a mobile payment application called ISIS Mobile Wallet that is offered through Verizon Wireless. I am so excited to have this opportunity, because I am learning about new technology and gaining access to all kinds of great money-saving offers through my phone.
So what exactly is the Isis Mobile Wallet ?
The Isis Mobile Wallet is a way to pay for purchases at retailers that display the contactless symbol. A technology called NFC* (Near Field Communication) enables the APP to communicate with the checkout terminal, and users simply tap their phone to pay anywhere contactless payments are accepted.
Is Isis Mobile Wallet safe to use?
My phone happens to have an enhanced SIM card designed to store and protect my payment information. Plus for safety purposes, you can select a PIN to use ISIS and if your device is lost one call or click can freeze your Wallet with Remote Wallet locking. More details are at the ISIS Mobile Wallet FAQ page.
How to set-up Isis Mobile Wallet:
To get started simply link credit cards from participating providers including American Express, Chase, and Wells Fargo. Applicable fees may apply for transfers. In addition you can set up an American Express Serve account or link your banks Debit Card.
When you sign up for American Express Serve through the ISIS app, you can also get 20% back on every tap with your American Express Serve Account in the Isis Mobile Wallet for up to $200 in credits. This is a limited time offer good till January 31, 2014. Visit serve.com/isis for terms and conditions.
In addition to signing up for payments, I also linked a couple of my rewards cards. This way I get immediate credit for those purchases. So far I have linked my Toys R Us Card and My Coke Rewards.
I also went through and selected my favorite retailers like Verizon and Toys R Us to gain access to special offers. I’ve had coupons and FREE items show up already.
Here are a couple of the offers I received this week and I am really liking the FREEBIES from Coke and Jamba. I actually already used the Toys R Us coupon this week and saved myself $15!
There are so many benefits to having this app, and I can’t wait to try it out at additional retailers. So far the TOP benefit has been the coupons, as time goes on it will be nice not to have to pull out my wallet.
