Coin: The Electronic Credit Card


Ever wished you had just one card to replace every other card cluttering your wallet or purse? Well the company behind Coin has found a solution with a device that syncs up to 8 of your credit, debit, gift and membership cards all into one.


Coin, which can last up to two years, comes pre-loaded with a digital button that lets you choose which card you want to use to pay for something, and is as thin as a regular credit card. A small screen on the card shows you the essentials, such as the last 4 digits of the card, expiration date and CVV. A mobile app allows you to add, manage and sync the cards and can also notify you when you’ve left Coin at home or forgot it somewhere. Coin can be used anywhere, even at ATMs, and if it finds itself in the hands of someone with sticky fingers for an extended period of time (which you set), it will auto-deactivate itself.

For the next 24 days you can pre-order Coin for $55 ($50 + $5 shipping). Coin will start shipping summer 2014.
