The title of this post is an understatement. One of my favorite places to shop right now is Walgreens. Why? Because they have somehow managed to unfuck the current payment system.

I can not only use Apple Pay quickly and easily, but my loyalty card is setup to work with Apple Pay too. Walk in, use my watch for the loyalty card and payment, and walk out.

I’ve seen these things take forever (Apple Pay fails a lot even at the Apple Store) but at Walgreens, for whatever reason, the shit is magically fast. That’s how it should be, and frankly it makes me prefer shopping there because of it. Office Depot is the worst by far — what a stupid set of systems we have right now.
