When ‘Coin’ was announced back in November, an app you’d manage on your phone and a single card onto which you could load your many credit cards… and gift cards.. cough.. it was greeted with a great deal of excitement. (See “One Card to Replace Them All (in Your Wallet)”)
There were skeptics. The battery doesn’t last forever and isn’t replaceable, it isn’t going to work with EMV Chip cards that I can imagine. But it’s still a pretty cool innovation though of course there are others in the market.
I just had to have one, so I placed an order. They said it wouldn’t be available until summer. Tick, tock.
Today I got an email that I could set up my account to begin the process of ordering one for shipping.
I bought two, so I created my account and then assigned one to myself and gifted the other.
Still, shipping isn’t happening quite yet. You can’t even download the app yet.
Download the Coin mobile app.

It sounds like it’ll be here soon enough, though, that at least I don’t feel like they just took my money and didn’t deliver anything. What it is they’re actually delivering, well, I’ll just have to wait a month since I’m not an iOS guy.
