Bad idea! You do realize you spend more money than you normally would by using a credit card or Apple pay in this case, then by using cash?! It's all designed for the big corporations to make more and more off of us. Look it up!

So you're telling us, bank of America uses a new scam to use paying methods to pay more like mentioned before, users charged using apple pay. I used apple pay myself and it's accurate ad I'm with visa and America's credit union.

Apple Pay was not designed to save anyone money. It is for convenience and to make Apple money by charging credit card companies a small fee. Yes, you may be less aware of how much you are spending using plastic or electronics than paper (cotton). But I don't see why that mentality affects you... You like paper more than plastic or NFC waves?
