Wells Fargo will give you a $20 statement credit to try Apple Pay
Some retailers are not terribly pleased with Apple Pay, trying to block its customers from using Apple's new mobile pay system. Many of these retailers are involved with their own mobile payment system called CurrentC. Banks, on the other hand, are dying for people to use Apple Pay. After all, getting people to spend using their credit card is how they make money.

In order to get Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus users to feel comfortable with Apple Pay, Wells Fargo is giving away $20 to its customers who use the service. To receive the $20 statement credit, Wells Fargo customers must complete an in-store purchase using Apple Pay, and their Wells Fargo Credit Card, before November 30th. Use a debit card or a pre-paid card, and Wells Fargo will give you a $10 statement credit instead.

As we mentioned earlier today, Apple is looking to expand the use of NFC on the iPhone as a security tool. But right now, using NFC connectivity to make paying a bill as simple as a tap, is all that Apple is trying to accomplish for now.

Also we (all iOS, Android, WP users) need boycott CurrentC 1. Anti-competitive, like ISIS/SoftCard again 2. Less secure, no tokens, links straight to your checking account 3. No fraud protections, i.e. if they get hack tough luck for you 4. Allows stores to collect more data about you 5. Harder to use, NFC > QR Codes

Absolutely. CurrentC is bad for consumers.

Actually, I never hear of currentC or the other one until now. To think of it - I never heard of Google wallet, Isis/soft card either until runners of Apple pay started circling around.

U didn't hear of Google wallet means u were always stuck to iPhone.. Android users will know what Goole wallet is.. we guys who visit these websites know about Apple Pay, many people don't know what an Apple pay is, nor have never heard of it..

I heard of Google Wallet after rumors of Apple Pay started running around, about 1-2 years ago... I used PayPal prior to that...

Wow, it's amazing how apple is giving all these incentives for their stuff now. Example, All the carriers were giving the IPhone 6 away free if you bring in a 5S. Something they have never done for any phone. Now the banks want to offer you cash just to try Apple Pay? I see it as, here is $20 to be a guinea pig and try this payment system so we can work out any bugs, because we saw B of A have one.
