@thedaveca That would be ideal. I only worry about the scanner. Many older cheaper scanners can’t read LCDs. I don’t expect anything from clerks but if it turns out to be a manager and they ask if I want. A loyalty card I ask “is it available as an app”?
@thedaveca I have not tried this anywhere that is not already used to scanning phones, at least at a corporate policy level. Some individuals look confused but I can tell they’ve at least had a class they’re trying to remember.
@thedaveca Yep. To be fair all already have an app, but just crap/slow and doesn’t have geolocation/passbook support. **So the social dynamic is already there.** Only difference is it looks a bit different to them and I can pull it up from home screen.
@thedaveca Never had a problem before but I think all the stores I go to have the right type of scanner already so it just works(TM). Some scanners won’t read off of LCDs. e.g. @ the grocery store they need to use the hand scanners not the flatbed.
@isaiah I’d prefer the safety issue was handled in a more robust manner such as shielding the plane’s electronics. Seems strange to take away people’s fingernail clippers for safety but then hope they turn off their devices.
