    consumers' need for a physical wallet. Providers of these and other
    game changing consumer experiences are mashing up new capabilities to

  • How the Wallet Was Won: The End of Paper Receipts

    by Scott Brady, David Barrett, Colleen Taylor and Jae Kim

    Our wallets are one of the last remaining bastions of a pre-digital lifestyle, relics of an era of payment that has since come and gone.

    Coupons are now Groupons, rewards cards are digitally stored on our smartphones and Square wants to power all our payments. With all these new ways to slim down and streamline our wallets, why are we still getting a paper receipt every time we check out at the grocery store? With so much progress, why are men still sporting the infamous Costanza bulge and women toting around pocketbooks that look like small filing cabinets? As more commerce shifts from offline to online, and even offline retailers are experimenting with digital marketing & transactions, the Costanza wallet is due for a makeover.

    What are the brands and startups that are changing how we think about receipts? What will the implications of Big Data and privacy be in this transition? And what systems will ultimately come to define how we all chronicle our shopping experiences moving forward?

    Our wallets have been ceding themselves over to the digital age for quite some time now. It’s about time we took that final leap and made the upgrade to Wallet 2.0.
