OK so color me a bit confused…
I signed up… Put a grand into the system and went to give it a trial run… In the first weeks I have had a few failed transactions, contactless doesnt work in some places, and its a (personal preference I guess) unappealing shocking pink thing…
But most of all… I dont see its purpose… I have no way to monitor my monthly spends, or category spends, or basically any real upside. Yes I can go into a payment and see a stores average spend, but thats all ?? Wheres the upside ??
My vanilla cards are my banks platinum cards, those have been my primary cards for almost 2 decades… Around those I cycle a bunch of cards, I have SE Asian bank cards for my life there, British airways visa cards to collect 3x avios / airmiles on my flights and collect points for actual savings… Whats the purpose of this card ??
Is it the fact I am using it on Android (Pixel XL) that it doesnt seem to have an upside ??
Is there going to be any kind of cashback, points, airmiles system in its future ??
Given I have had issues spending and authorizing with it, the need to load it, I struggle to see what it is fixing for me… What am I missing ??
