Square Cash Coffee Date


We're living in a world where it's becoming less and less common to carry cash. You want to pay for a ride to the airport, your groceries for the week or even just a cup of coffee? Well, there's an app for that. And one of my favorite and easiest money sharing apps is the Square Cash app.
You can easily use it to send or receive money from friends or family (or anyone on your contact list). All you have to do is go to the app, download it on your phone, signup (takes about three minutes) and add your debit card or credit card. I use it at my hair salon all the time!
This past weekend, I went up to San Francisco and Oakland to hang out with some friends. It was a beautiful day in the city so I had to stop for a macadamia nut almond latte and some coconut macaroons at this cute place called Saint Frank. I'm so used to paying for coffee on an app, so that's exactly what I did here using Square Cash to take care of the $4.50 bill.
It's like having real cash, but it's better because you can cash out to your bank instantly, and you can use it with anyone, even if they don't have an account. This is great for regular day-to-day use, but the Square Cash app can also come in handy when it comes to your blog.
If you're running your blog like a business, then you can sign up for the Square Cash business account. This makes getting paid for business dates super easy. Plus, have you heard of $Cashtags? A $Cashtag is a name you create that let's you get paid for the work you do. For instance, if I create a $Cashtag and call it "$ohtobeamuse" then you simply just go to the Square Cash website and put in my $ohtobeamuse name to directly send me payment for a service. No need to deal with all the hassle of other payment services. Square Cash keeps it simple.
The Square Cash Virtual Card is available to all users for free. The card allows you to buy items online straight from your Square Cash account -- so you don't have to share your personal information with another shopping site. Square Cash also has INSTANT deposits for a 1% fee, which no other app does! Lastly, this app doesn't have those silly sharing features attached to it. Because, let's face it, no one really cares about every little thing you paid for or who you paid.

Have any of you used the Square Cash app yet? It's the best way to pay and receive money!
