    We actually just came back from a Disney World vacation. They have these Magic Bands that are NFC wrist bands that you use to access just about everything. It was a very eye-opening experience for me and made me wants ApplePay to be all over my life.

    Unfortunately when we got back from Disney World then I noticed that my real world routine doesn't revolve around many of the ApplePay partners. I'm sure that many of them will eventually but I'm curious how everyone else is doing. Is ApplePay fitting in your lifestyle and what Cards/Retailers are you missing?

    For me its:

    Cards:
    - Discover
    - Sams Club Mastercard
    - Credit Union

    Retailers:
    - Costco
    - Target
    - Sams Club
    - Gas Stations
    - Dunkin Donuts

    Sam's club is MCX.

    but, more gas stations and Costco need NFC support.

    I work at advance auto parts and we still have to swipe people's cards through a slot in the keyboard. Way behind the times.

    Dunkin and Target too.

    My PNC card should be active in a week or so. Now that it looks like Winn-Dixie nearby accepts NFC (showing up in the MasterCard Nearby app now!), I at least have replacements for everywhere that I routinely shop, if not the actual stores. And, of course, more and more merchants will accept NFC as time goes on.

    For me, no one has NFC, that works that is. I mostly go to Nob Hill and Save Mart for groceries, Arco for gas and Rite Aid for prescriptions. And of course Target

    Many, if not most, of the retailers where I shop have NFC active. I'm just waiting for my credit union to get on board, because they issued my debit card and everyday credit card.

    My big purchase credit card (Chase United) is supported, though.

    Because of this, I haven't used it yet. :( Me so sad.

    AM/PM by me just put in new readers that have NFC capabilities. I'll have to give it a try next week when I get coffee in the morning.

    I would love to see Costco support apple pay, would make it easier than carrying the membership card and payment card, just bring your phone!

    HEB looks like it's equipped to use NFC, but none of their transmitters are enabled.

    They will soon enough, I'm sure.

    For my area Texaco is long gone - converted all to Shell.
    I tried AP on the Chevron I normally use at the pump - no go. It did work inside.

    I'm currently waiting for US Bank to support Apple Pay. US Bank said they would be ready for Apple Pay as soon as it was released, but that turned out to not be true and they made a statement later saying they'll have to release it in a "phased" rollout where Apple will add more banks in the beginning of November.

    I would like to see -

    Smith's Grocery (part of Kroger) They still have old POS reader equipment so there is hope that they will upgrade to readers with NFC capability.
