FWIW Ive never had an issue swiping the GWallet card for points and then using another card to pay, contactless cards need a little longer (and at a closer proximity) to process than the typical swipe through the reader will allow it
But I can see a problem with using this card. I swipe my Velocity card at BP to earn points, but use a different credit card to pay. Simply swiping the membership card at the eftpos terminal with the Visa on the back, is almost certainly bound to cause an inadvertent Paywave transaction. We shall see.
Some people are unable to get points earning credit cards....
I'm legitimately interested - everyone seems to be quite enthused by it, but I just can't see why it is better than what I do already with CCs. I feel like I am missing some benefit that is staring me in the face and I can't see??
Edit: back to one transaction per purchase again.Transactions seem to show as double processing in my VGW account, (NOT the VFF account).
Anyone seeing this?
The cash balance is right though, ie, transaction XX.xx by 2, then another one, XY.xy by 2.
Only touched my VGW card to the merchants reader once!
Don't know for sure if there was a double bonus via purchases on VGW though.
