    Had a nearly identical post a couple weeks ago. Yes, it works. Sadly, transferring money immediately costs money after $250.

    Essentially this card exists because most vendors do not have NFC and most customers don't either. I had this problem: I transferred money to my Google Wallet and tried to use the my Nexus S at 7-11, which always worked if I stood in the "one" line that had a working PayPass terminal, but then that terminal broke and I was unable to access my funds for miles around.

    Hence the need for the card, if Google expects its customers to take Wallet seriously.

    And interestingly, Google, with "The Bancorp Bank" (PayPal debit card goes through JP Morgan Chase, FYI), redesigned the credit card as they saw it should be for the digital age.

    All info, including the MasterCard symbol, is on the back. Nothing is on the front except the Google Wallet logo.

    Noteworthy is that this card is now useless to merchants who require raised numbers on the card — they aren't there. They are printed, un-raised, on the back.

    1. Works perfect.
    2. Money spent cost to transfer if you connect it with your bank

    +Brent Burzycki If the power goes out at a gas station, you'll find out real fast. My pizza delivery folks have been also using them as proof they saw the card.

    +James Russell I assumed there would be issues – same with that COIN card… issues and hiccups etc.. but not good they could be the your stranded kind…

    Also, no company can refuse a card because it doesn't have raised numbers. Look at chases newest card, no raised numbers
