College students and anyone with 30 seconds to kill =]

A new business idea our group came up with for a course...help us out by responding to this yes or no survey!

Will definitely help anyone that hates excess change and heavy coins in pockets!

Thanks in advance!

Cool idea but you'd have to create a new program for the register to use. I don't think any of them can accept a payment and then apply change to a card.

Garage List
They already have something where you keep your change on your card called debit/credit cards. Even better, it's all on the same card since change never gets charged to your account.

Everything in even amounts is impossible with taxes as a rate. If you hate having change this much, don't pay in cash.

I only carry coins in my car for meters
but now I don't even need that since they take CCs
I never pay in cash..always use CC..so coins don't bother me

but I do dislike pennies

I think it's a waste to have to pay for a charge card though. there are so many free student CCs out there...

To be brutally honest, your idea would have been innovative 10-20 years ago. Today, the debit card has all but replaced cash. And places that only take cash would be unlikely to accept another electronic system instead of debit/credit cards.
