WOW!

First I thought: GREAT!!!!

After reading that the max amount will be Yen 1.500 for the February time period it didn't look that great any more. Guess will keep on using my credit card and cash.

Paypay has got to be one of the more clunky cashless solutions so far, but man they are putting a lot of promotions out there.

I have it set up, and i will use it to get the 1500yen bonus, but other than that i will stick to the far quicker and smoother Edy/Suica payment systems. Barcode payments are so outdated now, even Apple realised it!

This article looks more like an advert. Certainly the 1,500 yen back is hardly an incentive.

Users of Tik Tok and other PRC apps that are already on your cellphones, please be aware of cybersecurity issues. Tik Tok has a history of sending your data to prc servers. Have a separate cellphone ONLY for payments.

I am not a fan of paypal. I had a fraudulent charge via a paypal vendor on my credit card and I simply could not get through to customer service. I simply denied the charge via my credit card which promptly reversed it and never used paypal again.

Even after their proliferation and past campaigns to get new users Paypay still keeps running new campaigns with big cashback incentives. Makes me wonder if they realize users only use the service when these promotions are running and then stop using them afterwards.

Only recall seeing a Yoshinoya near my usual haunts, though I doubt I could stomach as much as 1000 yen of the stuff to get my 500 yen off...

However.... were Yoshinoya to repeat this during Feb...

Then I'd be a taker, I doubt for eating much though ;-)
