suretap wallet surely works for me!

Posted on Updated on

wpid-screenshot_2015-01-12-22-46-05.pngAbout a week ago or so, I downloaded this new app called suretap wallet. So, what is it, you ask? It’s an app from Rogers that enables users to store payment cards and complete everyday point-of-sale (POS) transactions using their mobile device. This, however, can only be used on POS terminals which support contactless payments.

Currently, you can only add the Rogers Prepaid MasterCard as well as some gift cards to it. There was a recent promotion (which expired on January 6, 2015) that when you register and add the Rogers Prepaid MasterCard to the suretap wallet, you will receive $100 in free money. Yep, you read that right – one hundred dollars! If you were not able to take advantage of this promotion, let’s hope there’s another one for you soon.

The suretap wallet application is compatible with only certain smartphones. Current list includes the following:

  • Samsung GALAXY Alpha™
  • Samsung GALAXY Note 4™
  • Samsung GALAXY Note 3™
  • Samsung GALAXY Note II™
  • Samsung GALAXY S4™
  • Samsung GALAXY S III™
  • Samsung GALAXY S5™
  • HTC One™
  • HTC One (M8)
  • LG G3
  • LG G Flex
  • LG G2
  • LG Optimus G
  • BlackBerry® Z10
  • Sony Xperia® Z3
  • BlackBerry® Z3
  • Samsung Core LTE
  • BlackBerry® Z30
  • BlackBerry® Q10

The first transaction that I had using the suretap wallet with the free $100 in my Rogers Prepaid MasterCard was for my purchase at a health food store. The cashier was amazed, exclaiming, “Oh, new technology!”
