PXT Money to Give BU Hockey East Quarterfinal Fans $8 Free for Concession Stand, or Food & Drinks After the Games This Friday, Saturday, and SundayJoin the Pay-With-Your-Phone Revolution by Downloading Free PXT Money App Now, Then Use Your Phone -- Safer Than Cash, Debit, or Credit Cards -- to Pay; Safer Than Debit Cards. Pay Without Your Wallet (March 08, 2012)
ANDOVER, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/08/12 -- PXT Money, a mobile payment app and rewards company, will be the payment method of choice at Agganis Arena this Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the Sweet Tooth concession stand, for hot dogs, sweets, pretzels, popcorn, and drinks. PXT Money is safer than cash, debit, or credit cards, is completely free to use, and promises to make concession stand lines move faster.
Hockey fans who download the PXT Money app will get $8 free loaded into their new PXT Money account, which will buy any 2 items of their choice at the Sweet Tooth stand. Or fans can save their $8 and use it to help pay the tab across the street after the game, at Sunset Cantina, Angora Cafe, and Big City.
In general, to use PXT Money to pay a store or restaurant tab with your smart phone, you click on the PXT Money app, give them your phone number, click on the Pay button, validate the amount they send, and key in your PIN. That's it. A digital receipt is sent to your app for your records. You can send money to stores, restaurants, concession stands, cafes, bars, arenas, and even another person, all in just a few seconds.
When your money is sent, there is absolutely no personal data or banking data stored, captured, or sent. When you load money from PayPal, checking, debit or credit card accounts, only the money is loaded into your PXT Money app. No data. Ever. Your privacy is our priority, so occupy your wallet.
The money you load is stored digital cash that's on your phone, in an app, in a PXT account. You can check balance, transaction history -- all the same features with debit card accounts except there are no hidden fees, no risk of money or identity theft, and no limits to the special offers or discounts you can receive from stores and restaurants.
With the PXT Money app, the discounts and special offers appear in the app, in your GPS map and list of local merchants. Plus, you can send money to another PXT Money account holder in less than one minute, completely free, just by entering their phone number.
This weekend during the games, to pay at the Sweet Tooth stand, you will click on Pay in the app, then the merchant name and price will pop right up. You hit Accept and key in a PIN. That's it. You get a digital receipt, too. You'll be paying with Agganis Arena's free $8 gift for trying out PXT Money.
Everyone who activates a secure PXT Money account today through game time Friday night will get a free $8 loaded into their account automatically.
PXT Money ambassadors, in PXT Money T-shirts, will be outside and inside Agganis Arena this weekend before and during games. Look for the PXT Money table right behind the BU band, where ambassadors will load your phone with the PXT Money app and a free $8 to go spend right there at Sweet Tooth concession stand. Or you can save the money for later, to spend at any of the participating restaurants and stores.
To sign up now, download the app at either the Apple Store or the Android Market. PXT Money means phones with benefits. Aside from exclusive discounts and special offers, anyone can also earn money on an ongoing basis by referring friends to sign up.
"Once you have an account, whenever you refer a friend who signs up and names you as the referral when prompted, you earn $1; and every time that friend purchases something using PXT Money, you also get a percentage of that purchase," said John Regan, CEO of PXT Money. "But for Spring Break we're offering double rewards. That means $2 for every friend who signs up."
Regan also encourages Boston area college students to let PXT Money mentor them and gain work experience with paid internships. Please visit pxtmoney.com, and PXT Money on Facebook and Twitter to hear about more special offers and internships programs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlqBCwLp7FQ&feature=youtu.be
