    I think the person in the picture needs a few more CIBC cards. Clearly not enough.

    I’m happy that Canadians information isn’t as easily purchased and used as other countries. I blame my complacency on the fact that our banking sector is actually pretty good. I was one of the first users using my Phone to make NFC payments with the BlackBerry Bold, CIBC Credit Card, and Rogers NFC SIM, package way back when. But tap payments and notifications for every transaction into my inbox made the use of my Phone slower and cumbersome. I can see why Apple Pay, and Google Wallet and the like make sense in the US, where chipcards are still not the majority and tap&pay cards barely exist.
