Coles launches Mobile Wallet

App combines Credit Card and Flybuys in one service

Coles customers now have another tap-and-go option when paying at the checkout with the introduction of Coles Mobile Wallet.

The retailer launched the service after what it describes as a successful two phase trial. The service combines the near field communication (NFC) of Coles Pay Tag with an app for iOS and Android.

Coles said the app features many account management options for Coles MasterCard and FlyBuys accounts. The service is limited to Coles MasterCard customers and to purchases under $100.

Coles General Manager of financial services, Richard Wormald, said the firm understands customers are doing more with their mobile devices.

“Our trials revealed that 77 per cent of Coles MasterCard customers found the Coles Pay Tag more convenient than using their traditional credit cards. Now partnered with the new App, the Coles Mobile Wallet will provide functionality, a seamless user experience and instant rewards – unlike any other credit card in the market.”

The main benefit of the service is that it combines a credit card and FlyBuys account in one. The pay tag has an adhesive side so users can attach it to a Mobile device for convenience. With so many consumers already embracing NFC technology, the service is not such a great technological leap. The main feature existing customers may find the most useful will be the combination and management of credit card and FlyBuys account in the one app.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
