Google has announced that The Container Store, Foot Locker, Guess, Jamba Juice, Macy’s, OfficeMax and Toys’R’Us have joined American Eagle in rolling out the full Google Wallet ‘SingleTap’ solution.
According to Google, shoppers at these locations can now pay for items, redeem coupons and earn rewards points all with a single tap of their NFC-enabled handset. All the customer needs to do is take their items to the register and tap their phone, and the app will automatically sort through your digital wallet to find an appropriate coupon or loyalty card.
Google has also announced a couple of updates to the service, including a new ‘Featured Offers’ section that contains discounts exclusive to Google Wallet users. Google says they’ve also improved transaction details for the Google Prepaid Card by providing real-time transaction information including merchant name, location, dollar value and time of each transaction.
As seen in the video, a Google Wallet team has been dispatched to participating retailers to show customers how to use the new service (and also pick up their tabs).
Merchants currently offering digital loyalty cards for Google Wallet include: Foot Locker, Guess, OfficeMax and American Eagle Outfitters.
A directory of participating stores is available here.
