I have a citi mc for which I requested a paypass keyfob. It looks real neat but is rather bulky in my pocket. I got discover's answer to this; it's a downsized c card in a plastic sleeve from which it pulls out. Too bulky, also flimsy; not sure card portion will stay attached. My Chase Visa has a chip inside that lets me wave it at paypass and other similar terminals at my local mcdonalds and cvs. I like this and would rather wave than swipe, but I'm hardly ever in these places and it really doesn't make much difference, obviously. If there were wide acceptance of contactless payment, I'd leave the citi mc fob on my keychain, for the rare occasions when I'm out with my keys but not my wallet (walking the dog, for instance). If my neighborhood street folk carried wireless contactless payment terminals, I might wave a buck their way every now and then. As it is now it's just not worth it.
