Ha!You might change your mind if you had an experience like this:When I first went to work for IBM in 1964 -- it was in Las Vegas, Nevada.There were slot machines everywhere -- restaurants, stores, coffee shops, supermarkets, carwashes, gas stations ...When you bought anything they'd give you change in silver dollars instead of bills.It was a real PITA, because you'd have to make a trip to the bank to exchange the silver dollar for bills, or conveniently (for the...
Ahh ... Bo Derek ...She certainly pushed all the right buttons!
Your comments about Sears are interesting ...The credit card I use most is Discover -- minimum 2% cashback on everything, pay balance every month, no charges or fees, 1 month float, releif in case of incorrect/invalid charges ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discover_CardApple Pay is not currently supported by Discover -- though others have posted that they are making noises as if they will support it.I certainly hope they do!

Bingo ...And, then 2% instant [merchant] discount when you use Apple Pay ...BTW, there is absolutely no reason that paying with Apple Pay prevents you from participating in loyalty, coupon and lay-away prorgrams!
