I was contacted by NBK to try out their new payment technology service – VISA PayWave using Nokia 6212- Bouky! Instead of paying with cash or cards, you wave your phone to get coupons by waving at smart posters and/or to pay for your merchandise by waving at a special device/reader available in almost all AlShaya stores and restaurants in the Avenues. It will like a pilot testing for few months before the official release 😉
The very nice staff at NBK – Avenues did the setting for me and briefed me on how to use it. They also linked it to my VISA card and linked it to another VISA (with a KD10 balance in it) – COOL! The device works with Zain line, so I was also given a prepaid Zain line along with it 😉
Because not all stores were ready for it last night, I could not use it for payment, but I got coupons 😉 Cool! I will be taking it with me every time I go to the Avenues and I will post about it whenever used! So stay tuned mi amigos!
