Aren't these free? I'm pretty sure you can get a Square card reader free directly from square.com

Oh ok, well I guess that nets a few cents after taxes. I guess if you need it in a pinch, picking up in store is the route to go instead of waiting for shipping.

These go on clearance at Staples from time to time for $5, making it a MM.

This version will most likely be discontinued in the near future as the port it plugs into no longer exists on the newer phones. Plus they are rather useless when the cards are chipped and a different reader is needed.

You mean the port is discontinued on the one phone. And no one likes that. And these still work just fine with the adapter. So... No. Not going to be discontinued. And "chip" cards still have magnetic stripes. So... No. Just no.

The port has been dropped from numerous phones and not just one.

Call your CC company and request a European card: No magnetic strip. The US is behind the world by numerous years when it comes to this technology.

Since the US has already missed the EMV implementation date, it will probably take until the end of 2017 to get there.

Thanks for educating us, Pru. Do you know how many $10 square credit per person (or household)?

One per account. Keep in mind if you're trying to make it into a MM, you can use Quill as a PM to get it for 6.99 (or less).

It's usually online to online, but just checked Quills ordering and the item is now discontinued and thus a clearance item. Clearance items are not PM'd.
