How they describe themselves: Blaze Mobile Wallet enables consumers to purchase goods with their cell phones at millions of retailers (e.g., McDonald’s, 7-Eleven, AMC Theaters, etc.) nationwide. A simple wave of your cell phone over the POS terminal is all it takes to pay at checkout. Consumers can use their existing cell phone by affixing Blaze Mobile’s patent pending NFC sticker to their phone. In addition to making in-store purchases, consumers can use their Blaze Mobile Wallet to purchase event tickets, manage bank accounts at any of the 8,000 supported financial institutions, check reward points, and receive real-time proximity-based coupons over the air.
What they think makes them better: Blaze Mobile has contactless payment (patent filed in 2005), mobile ticketing, one-stop loyalty cards management, proximity-based real-time coupon delivery, search, directions and maps.
