Pay for card, then pay to use your own money First i couldn't add any of my cards. Finally added a card when i bought a new phone... guess what!? Card with a chip? Doesn't work at any place that requires you to insert the card with a chip. . . But thats not the worst part. I bought a $3 redbull at a gas station as a test... charged me a $1.21 fee! Why would anyone use a card that charges you fees like this. I supported you coin. I gave you $100 for the card and this is how you treat me!? Time to play coin meets scissors.
Hasn't worked for months My experience with this thing has been abysmal. First I preordered over a year ago before it was released and then was completely forgotten about. Never received a product or an email. So I bought it again when 2.0 came out and it worked for a month then when I upgraded my phone the app quit working so I couldn't sync cards anymore. Now that they've bothered to finally update the app I tried again and now the app won't recognize the card reader.
App is great. Coin is not. Coin has sold out to Fitbit, who shut down Coin's long-term operations. This means no more updates, and once your Coin battery is dead, you can't even get a replacement. Warranty and support will still be honored I hear. Plastc has offered a $50 Coin trade-in discount for those interested.
Nothing but disappointment I was super excited when I first heard about it, then it took ages to get to me, super excited to open the package, card swiper doesn't work, if you can't swipe verify you can't use coin. New coin 2.0 comes out! Super excited! Still can't swipe verify. Maybe it's my headphone jack? Get a new phone! Try again! Still won't swipe verify. Must've ordered this thing three years ago, still haven't been able to use it. Over it. Maybe I'll try again when I get a fresh credit card...
Unable to use where chip is required For the most part, Coin is convenient. Except for instances when I select a card that has a chip. Unable to insert Coin in chip readers is inconvenient & embarrassing. Hence, have to use the actual chip card instead of Coin. This defeats the purpose of using Coin instead of individual debit/credit cards. Upgrade needed...
See it, like it, buy it ... Coin it's that easy The idea is sound, the performance of the card, rather exceptional. Several cards that can be loaded on a single "card", what is not to like. I will say there is that occasional purveyor who's machine can't handle the transaction, but that is about 2-4% of my transactions to date; so the convenience far out ways the concern. I will say I am curious as how this will work once all chip readers are working as the NFC did not work, when attempted as a bypass! but it may have been user error (hmm)... maybe.
