Disclosure: I am a member of the Verizon Wireless #VZWLife team and received a device as part of this program. I am a long time Verizon customer and all opinions are my own.
I am happy to announce that I will be working with Verizon Wireless for a few more months! For this campaign, I will be reviewing the iPhone 5S, which I will share more about in a future post. Today, I have to tell you about a new app I just found out about this week – the ISIS Mobile Wallet app.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that everything is slowly going the way of technology. We can now do some much with our smartphones — check email, pay bills, watch movies, play games, etc etc. With the new ISIS Mobile Wallet, you can now make your purchases easier – and eliminate the need to carry your wallet or purse!
This app allows you pay for store purchases by “tapping your phone” against a terminal at the cash register. ISIS securely stores your bank account, debit cards, and credit cards, as well as store loyalty cards so you can easily lighten your load.
To use the ISIS Mobile Wallet app, your smart device must have Near Field Communication (NFC) compatibility as well as an enhanced SIM card. Check the current list of ISIS ready devices. The app is currently available on the Google Play store, and will be in the iTunes App Store soon!
Security Features of ISIS Mobile Wallet
The information stored for the app is done on the enhanced SIM Card. Should your phone be stolen, no one would be able to access your bank or credit card details. This is true security, unlike if your wallet was lost or stolen. In that case, the finder would have your ID, payment methods, and more to use against you.
If your phone does disappear, a quick call to Verizon’s Customer Service will allow you to freeze your ISIS Mobile Wallet so that no one can get into or use your account.
DID YOU KNOW: It takes an average of 4 minutes for someone to discover their phone is missing. It takes an average of 20 minutes for them to realize their wallet is missing!
During setup, ISIS requires you to set a 4-digit PIN, which will allow you to log in to make a purchase. Also, the app uses a dynamic CVV (the three digit code on the back of a credit card), meaning no one could ever guess the number — or have access to it like they would if they had your credit card in hand.
Saving with the ISIS Mobile Wallet
ISIS uses American Express’ Serve – a re-loadable prepaid account that allows customers to link their bank account and credit cards to the app. There is no charge to use Serve, if your account is set up within the mobile app.
Also, using ISIS & Serve allows you to save lots on your upcoming purchases – think holiday shopping!
- $10 Bonus if you set up Serve through the ISIS mobile wallet until 1/31/14
- 20% off purchases, up to $200, using your Serve account through ISIS until 1/31/14
- The discount is rolling, meaning it will be deposited back into your Serve account usually within 3 days of purchase.
- Special offers inside the app. Many companies are offering special deals if you make purchases at their stores using ISIS.
