I don't think you have to very elite to get one. Give them a call and they'll send you one. I've had mine for several months but have only used it once and that was just to see if it worked.

Re: My Discover Zip Story

hemi961, does it work if you don't touch the contactless reader?

 

Can't help myself, I take things literally sometimes.  Good for laughs.  :smileyvery-happy:

Re: My Discover Zip Story

That's cool. I'm still waiting for Citi to mail me Paypass for my Dividend Platinum Select MC. 

 

I find it very strange that Citi does not offer embedded Paypass credit card and instead have to get a separate payment tag, but we'll see.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi TY Preferred (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

Re: My Discover Zip Story

I personally love my Zip card. I actually have it behind my HTC Evo's battery cover. The Zip card comes in real handy if I ever forget my card. I just tap my phone to pay for my items. Sometimes the cashiers look confuse when I swipe my phone across the pad lol

Yes it worked that way for me.  I have mines attached to the back of my BlackBerry.  I waved the phone in front of the payment machine and it worked instantly.
