V.Me by Visa (Sponsored)
To say that I did the majority of my holiday shopping online would be a major understatement. It was like I had challenged myself to stay out of stores as much as possible. My husband prefers brick and mortar stores. He likes to see and touch things. He likes waiting in line and sitting in traffic. I prefer the convenience of shopping in my pajamas, and the thrill of wondering what on earth I ordered when packages start crowding my doorstep.
When I was offered the chance to try out the V.me by Visa program, I jumped at the opportunity. I created an account which took no longer than filling in the billing information on any website. I chose PacSun.com from the list of retailers using V.me and picked a shirt for my husband. At checkout I just chose the V.me payment option and logged in and I was all set. If this sounds ridiculously easy, that's because it is.
I was pleasantly surprised that using this option gave me $5 off of a $25 order this time. Coupled with free shipping, that right there is one giant advantage of shopping online, friends.
Soon, V.me will allow you to create a budget and track your spending by category, which is a great idea, aside from the fact that I want to somehow figure out how to pay my December credit card bill without looking at the total. They're also adding a feature that will allow you to pay with your phone at some stores. My husband is very sad about that feature. He would like a feature that will make it harder for me to spend money, thank you very much.
The list of merchants accepted is small for now, but will hopefully continue to grow as the convenience can't be beat.
