So what’s up here?
The big boys stuck chips into all of our credit and debit cards. The big boys are sticking chips into and onto everything. Want to learn how little ol’ you can take advantage of the big finance boys who control credit and debit card transactions?
Yes, the big boys stuck chips into all of our credit and debit cards which account for card purchasing volumes that have risen to more than 3 trillion dollars per annum and they had to avail themselves of some means to do so. So why can’t we avail ourselves of the same?
Well, we can, given the know-how, the starting cost is approximately twenty-five cents. Yes, really. Pinky swear. Given the not-know-how? Well, all I can say is TAKE THE CLASS.
Historically, we have used our credit or debit cards to “swipe” the card through a payment terminal. The big boys put chip sets into their bank cards so we consumers can now also stick or tap; stick the card into the payment terminal or (((tap)))® the card onto or near the payment terminal. Given that fundamental fact every adult in America is now becoming aware of such change so it becomes reasonable to ask “If I can now use a Smartphone or a contactless credit or debit card to tap-and-pay what else can I use the instantaneous convenience of tap for?” (Heads nodding up and down.)
Clinton Gallagher will be your instructor to answer that question for you. For the cost of a large pizza with pepperoni his 2 hour classes taught April 27th and May 4th 2019 at the Michaels Arts & Crafts Supply Store – 695 Main Street, Brookfield will teach you how you can obtain and use a type of programmable electronic sticker to take advantage of the same wireless network communication technology the big finance boys use for contactless financial payments; Near Field Communication (NFC).
Does the word programmable make your leg start to twitch like you have to go potty? ROFL Like the banner ad on the web page used to enroll in the class asks, “Can you enter a cook time on a microwave?” Yes, it is metaphorically that easy. Pinky swear again.
Think of it like this; if you make anything as a hobby or if you manufacture anything as a means of employment you likely understand the value of spending money for classroom instruction. Michaels asks that instructors require class materials consisting of products they sell in their stores. A $7.95 bottle of decoupage will do but why that was selected to be the only required class material will be a hilarious surprise class enrollees will learn as we all share and learn together during class.
Remember not knowing what we do not know can be and usually is more costly than spending money to acquire knowledge leading to actionable experience making the work we do pay off. We used to call it bringing home the bacon before we were reminded that pigs have feelings too.
So are you ready to learn how spending peanuts for a class will teach you everything you need to know to go forth afterwards and obtain the raw materials with costs starting at a measly twenty-five cents (another pink swear) and how spending peanuts for a class will develop easily learned skills to use your Android or Apple iPhone and/or how any of the other 80 million or so other Android and Apple iPhones can now be used to (((tap)))® on things and connect to the WWW (FOR WHATEVER.)
Up until now folks such as yourself simply haven’t learned that the big boys of finance have actually made it possible for any of us to use the same means of conveying financial transactions that they use themselves; the same means they have no ethical or moral obligation to tell any of us about. The same means the class will instruct you how to obtain and use yourself.
