I swear, I have to get one of these if it kills me. For months now I’ve been watching those Visa and MasterCard commercials that showcase the RFID technology that’s in PayPass. You know, the one where the dude is running late and buys a pack of gum and a banana or something just by waving his credit card at a machine. Well now if you want to take it one step further, you should get a Visa.
The new Micro Tag is a small key chain with a Visa logo that acts just like PayPass. Although you can only use this device on purchases $25 or less, it’s still a lifesaver when you’re in a pinch for time. I could definitely see this being handy when grabbing a last-minute snack at the airport. “M&Ms and a rum and Coke, please.”
